Suozzi Statement on President Trump’s Remarks on Immigrants

January 12, 2018
Press Release

Today, Congressman Tom Suozzi made the following statement regarding the remarks President Trump made yesterday about immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and some African nations.

"The president’s comments yesterday were awful, inappropriate, unpresidential, irresponsible and demoralizing to so many people.

“The countries the president referenced are impoverished and suffering from a host of problems. Human beings occupy those countries and the United States of America has always been a beacon of hope to them and so many others around the world. The president’s comments diminished our status as that beacon of hope.”
