Oct 30, 2018
Press Release

NAPERVILLE, IL – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement after President Trump stated he wanted to end birthright citizenship:

"This announcement is another example of the President's attempt to walk away from the principles that made this country great and to instill fear in the immigrant community and the individuals who lawfully seek asylum in our country. This announcement is also another stark example of the President's willingness to stoke hatred among his political base at the expense of American values and our reputation as a leader of the free world. Since its founding, the United States has stood as a symbol of freedom and hope for anyone who sought safety from oppression and war. I call on the President to rescind his announcement and put an end to this fear mongering."
