Senator David Perdue Statement On President Trump’s Immigration Actions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement regarding reports that President Donald J. Trump will take action to ensure our country’s immigration laws are enforced and our borders are secure: 

“President Trump is making it a priority in his first week to take a fresh look at our country’s immigration policies so we can finally start fixing their many shortcomings. Before anything can happen to address our nation’s immigration issues, we must first enforce our current immigration laws and secure our borders. Job one is to make it easier to remove felons who are here illegally and pose a risk to the safety of Americans. Simultaneously, our federal government should finally crack down on the hundreds of sanctuary cities refusing to enforce our laws by choosing to harbor criminals and illegal immigrants. President Trump’s actions are a good first step towards fixing our immigration system and solving our national security crisis.”
