Washington, DC - This week, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) hosted a teletown hall on the Trump Administration’s recent executive orders on immigration, refugees, and the construction of a wall on the Mexican border. Over 4,000 people from the 11th District participated in the discussion.
Washington, DC - I am deeply concerned about President Trump’s executive order intended to undermine the financial regulations enacted after the 2008 economic crisis. Reforms like the Dodd-Frank Act allow for effective oversight of Wall Street, protecting against the kind of economic recession that cost millions of jobs for working families.
Washington, DC - I strongly disagree with the order. It poses a grave threat to our values and our economy. Since 1975, zero people have been killed by terrorist attacks on American soil by immigrants from the seven countries affected by Trump’s Executive Order, showing just how misplaced the priorities of the Trump Administration are.
Washington, DC - I strongly condemn the construction of a wall with Mexico and any action that provokes fear into the lives of our immigrant communities. This wall is useless and antithetical to the core values of our country. Our country thrives on the innovation, culture, and diversity that immigrants from all walks of life bring to the United States.
Washington, DC - I am deeply troubled by early reports that our scientific community is facing threats from the new presidential administration.
