Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) released the following statement:

“Today’s immigration votes are shallow and mean. They get us no further along in our fight against Trump’s unjust and unnecessary assault on vulnerable families and merely reflect how Republicans are holding American values hostage to their own politics.

“The current immigration crisis is the one Donald Trump created. It is past time that Republicans of conscience join Democrats to pass immigration reform and call Trump’s bluff.”
