Thompson: Trump’s Cruel Immigration Agenda Intended to Foment Border Chaos

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement on the President’s failed border security and immigration policies, now on display at the border near Tijuana:

“The Trump Administration’s immigration agenda is clearly intended to foment chaos at the border. Any border security and immigration policy that results in mothers and children being gassed is not only cruel and morally reprehensible, but also an abject failure. Congress will no longer sit idly by as President Trump incites fear and division in an attempt to close the border and extort funding for his completely unnecessary wall. The Administration should be preparing itself to finally face real oversight of its failed border and immigration policies.”
