Congressman Al Green’s Statement on President Trump’s Threat to Close the Southern Border

Apr 2, 2019

(Washington, D.C.) — On Tuesday, April 2, 2019, Congressman Al Green released the following statement on the President’s threat to close the southern border:

“The President has, at best, questionable credibility when it comes to dealing with the humanitarian crisis at the southern border. Mr. Trump began his 2016 presidential campaign with shameful, derogatory comments about ‘Mexicans’ and he has been persistent in his effort to thwart lawful asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border. The president’s current threat to close the southern border is merely a continuation of the strategy that got him initially elected in efforts to get him re-elected in 2020. Shame on you, Mr. President.”
