Statement on Immigration Executive Orders

WASHINGTON – Following the executive orders on immigration yesterday, FWD.us President Todd Schulte released the following statement:

“Those individuals living here illegally who commit serious, violent crimes should be deported, but that can only be done if ICE prioritizes those individuals. Unfortunately, this order sets the stage for a large-scale ramp up in deportations by no longer distinguishing between dangerous felons and an undocumented mother working to provide for her U.S. citizen children. Diverting resources away from violent criminals would make us less safe and break apart families by removing from our country some of best and brightest workers, students and members of every community.”
