Statement on Donald Trump's Immigration Speech

WASHINGTON, DC — Following Donald Trump’s immigration and national security speech in Phoenix, Arizona, which outlined the principles of his immigration plan, President Todd Schulte released the following statement:

“We were hopeful that Mr. Trump would lay out a practical plan to stop future illegal immigration and provide a realistic solution for those currently living here without status.  Unfortunately, Mr. Trump failed on both accounts, continuing to embrace the deportation of all undocumented immigrants as the core principle of his immigration plan, while proposing to radically restrict legal immigration as well.  These policies are not only out of step with American values and American voters, but would risk our national security and jeopardize our economic prosperity.”
