• Panetta Statement Regarding President Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration 

    Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) released the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. 

    “People around the world look to the United States as a beacon of hope and freedom through its enlightened and bold leadership. This past week, disappointedly and disturbingly, our executive branch did a disservice to our nation’s fundamental values by making disgraceful decisions based on intolerance, racism, and fear. That type of insular reaction is contrary to the historical responsibilities of our nation to welcome those fleeing terror and persecution.  

    “When my grandparents came to this country to attain the American Dream, they were welcomed by the Statue of Liberty. The text at the base of that beacon reads, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.’ We must never forget that being American means that we bear the burden to serve one another and welcome people of all religions and nationalities who are willing to come here and share in that responsibility. President Trump’s executive actions are not reflective of our values. As a nation of immigrants, we are stronger because of our diversity, and when we come together in the name of inclusivity and equality, our voices cannot be silenced.”
