Chairman Crowley Statement on Reuniting Families Act

February 13, 2018

(Queens, N.Y.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement after endorsing the Reuniting Families Act:

“Our immigrant communities are under attack. President Trump’s deportation machine has waged an assault in our churches, in our schools, in our hospitals, and in our courtrooms, and he is now attempting to dismantle our family-based visa system. This is unacceptable and goes against every value I know Americans hold.

“Our immigrant neighbors and friends must be assured that we are always fighting for them. The Reuniting Families Act is a solid benchmark of how we can promote an immigration policy that keeps families strong, while continuing to protect our borders and pave the way for comprehensive immigration reform. I am proud to sign onto this legislation.”
