CLARKE STATEMENT ON TRUMP “ZERO-TOLERANCE” POLICY

WASHINGTON, DCCongresswoman Yvette D. Clarke released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s “Zero-Tolerance” Policy:

“Donald Trump’s policy of separating immigrant families at the border is not only cruel, inhumane, and immoral, but is also deeply unsettling to the majority of American people and our global community. The border crisis was manufactured by Trump. He could put an end to all of this, but instead, he has chosen to use children and families as leverage to enact divisive immigration policies including his unnecessary $25 billion wall.

I call on members of both political parties to speak out against this inhumane policy and to continue to resist.”
