Senator David Perdue Comments On Immigration Votes

“Senate Democrats crushed the dreams of many people who were counting on them to deliver”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the Senate’s failure to pass the Secure and Succeed Act, which mirrors President Trump’s bipartisan immigration framework:

“Senate Democrats have shown their true colors. First, they shut down the government over DACA. Today, they had an opportunity to vote to provide certainty for 1.8 million DACA recipients and they voted no. Senate Democrats said they wanted a bipartisan solution, but really they don’t. Senate Democrats said they want to secure our border, but really they don’t. Today, Senate Democrats crushed the dreams of many people who were counting on them to deliver and showed they are quite happy to have an immigration system that does not serve the American people or protect our national security.”
