For immediate release

President Trump on Saturday failed to offer the Nation the real leadership it needs to end his government shut down and to reform our broken immigration system. Instead of offering real long-term solutions, he continues to offer unacceptable quick fixes, and he continues to treat both federal government workers and millions of immigrants as bargaining chips rather than as the flesh and blood human beings they are. The President needs to get serious. So does Congress.
The President needs to end his foolish and destructive government shut down now. He and Congress working together need to step up and provide permanent solutions for Dreamers and TPS holders and for the millions of other immigrants still trapped in the shadows. What our Nation needs is comprehensive immigration reform, not bits and pieces.
