DNC on President Trump’s Visit to California
March 13, 2018
In advance of President Trump’s visit to California, where he will inspect prototypes for his border wall and attend a RNC fundraiser, DNC spokesperson Vedant Patel released the following statement:
“President Trump should not expect a warm welcome when he touches down in California. Millions of Californians have already rejected the Trump administration and its efforts to slash funding for public education, cut taxes for the richest Americans, and strip health care from millions of Americans. Californians deserve a president who prioritizes creating good-paying jobs, expanding access to health care and increasing opportunities for hard-working families, not someone obsessed with spending $18 billion to fund an illogical and unnecessary border wall to the delight of the extreme right-wing voices of the Republican Party.
If that wasn’t enough, Trump’s arbitrary deadline for action on DACA has passed without any action. Immigrant youth are still waiting for a permanent legislative solution because Trump and Republicans have stood in the way of progress. Protecting these young immigrants strengthens our economy and families across the country – not building a wall. Democrats believe our diversity is our greatest strength and we will always fight for hardworking families and a smart, sensible immigration system.”
