Press Release

Washington, DC – Following news that the Trump Administration is planning a mass roundup and deportation of migrant families in cities across the country, including NYC, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement.

“The anti-migrant cruelty of this President and his Administration knows no bounds. This targeting of migrant families is meant to induce fear and does nothing to actually address our broken immigration system. We should be focusing resources on addressing the humanitarian crisis at the border and in hiring more immigration judges to clear the backlog of cases waiting to be heard. We should be focusing on getting the Senate to pass the American Dream and Promise Act which has already passed the House. We should be focusing on how to make our immigration system more humane, not dangerous and cruel.”
