DNC Statement on Republican Governors’ Political Field Trip to US-Mexico Border

Today, ten Republican governors are traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border in a lame political stunt. DNC spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement:

“The Republican governors taking their political field trip to the U.S.-Mexico border are the same ones who stood idly by as Donald Trump spent four years destroying our immigration system and spreading vile, xenophobic rhetoric. If Republican governors want to make a statement about the border, maybe they can call on their Republican members of Congress to join President Biden and Democrats in working to rebuild and improve our immigration system instead of flying thousands of miles for a stunt designed to further their own political aspirations.”
