Schumer Statement on President Trump’s Plan for Mass Deportations

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today released the below statement in response to a recently released Department of Homeland Security memo detailing updated guidance on immigration enforcement:


“No matter how much they deny it, it is clear that the White House is setting in motion their mass deportation plan, directing immigration agents to round up and quickly deport anyone who is undocumented. 


“We can all agree that violent criminals should be removed, but it is outrageous and unacceptable for ICE to target or arrest innocent immigrant families contributing to our nation and working to achieve the American Dream. This is a waste of limited resources, disrupts our economy, does nothing to keep us safe, and makes everyone a target - causing panic within the immigrant community.


“We will continue fighting for what is right, and we will be vigilant and strong in our commitment to upholding the promise and grand tradition of America welcoming immigrants.”
