Dawkins condemns Trump’s family-separation policy

HARRISBURG, June 20 – State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., issued the following statement concerning President Trump’s immigration policies:        

“This administration’s immigration policy is shameful and disgraceful. There is no excuse for our nation to be willingly participating in such inhumane treatment of families who have come to our country seeking safety and asylum.

“There has been pushback against this policy from both sides of the aisle. I am sure a bipartisan solution can certainly be found without cruelly tearing families apart.

“I call the Trump administration to immediately terminate this policy, and for the reunification of all children and parents who have been separated thus far.” 

A resolution urging President Trump to reverse his zero tolerance family-separation immigration policy will be introduced in the state House in the upcoming days.
