Voto Latino Statement on President Trump’s Address to the Nation
Tonight, President Trump addressed the nation in primetime to make his case for continuing one of the longest federal government shutdowns in US history.
Yet there was nothing new in his speech.
Border security is a priority. But President Trump’s hateful and manufactured crisis at the southern border is hurting millions of Americans while putting at risk the lives of innocent children and families fleeing violence and seeking asylum.
Our nation is facing too many critical challenges to be wasting our resources on dangerous policies that will harm, rather than help our communities.
