(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued the following statement today regarding President Donald Trump’s recently released immigration plan.
“This offensive plan cutting legal immigration by one half is nothing but a series of nativist talking points and regurgitated campaign rhetoric that completely fails to move our nation forward toward real reform. It falls far short of comprehensive change, in providing no path toward legal status for the 11 million people here today working and living in the shadows. I am as committed as ever to serious bipartisan reform that will repair our nation’s dysfunctional and destructive immigration system. This plan betrays our American values, and economic interests.”
