Statement from Voto Latino on President Trump’s Imminent Declaration of a National Emergency

Declaring a national emergency for a wall that Americans have resoundingly said they don’t want nor need to stop asylum-seeking refugees is absurd.

It’s a veiled excuse for a power grab and it upsets our democratic system of three equal branches of government as outlined by our Constitution.

We encourage for cooler heads to prevail in the administration and have the president use his energy to address actual crises we are facing that impact millions of Americans such as climate change and the opioid epidemic.
