“The President does not like any form of immigration. He has been cutting down and imposing restrictions on legal forms on family re-unification and so on. He’s ending DACA protections,” said Cortez. “In doing so, he’s criminalizing a population of people in the United States and now he’s asking for $5 billion to continue to militarize and weaponize a force that has zero accountability.”

“We need to feel the pain, the struggle, the hopes and the dreams of the people who this President likes to demonize,” added Rep. Ilhan Omar.
