NYIC Slams Trump’s Plan To Shut Down Government for the “Wall”

February 6th, 2018

NEW YORK, NY– In response to Trump’s statement calling for a government shutdown if Congress is unable to pass further border security measures, the New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director, Steven Choi, issued the following statement:

"It’s fiscally and morally irresponsible to hold American taxpayers hostage over an impractical wall that will waste billions of dollars and send the wrong message to the world. A day after the market took a dive, we need real solutions – including a ‘clean’ Dream Act now so that 800,000 working people can continue to live their lives. This latest tantrum would be nothing short of a disaster”
