Statement on the president’s fear-mongering immigration address

“The president’s big national address was nothing more than a repeat of his now cliché lies and fear-mongering over immigrants. Oval Office speeches have long been staged to reassure Americans in troubling times. Tonight, it was instead a stage to scare and intimidate. That is not the kind of leadership which strengthens our nation.

 

Thankfully, the president has for now retreated from his suggestion that he might declare a farcical state of national emergency. The overwhelming opposition to this dictatorially-inspired abuse of power seems to have tempered his instincts for now. Americans, Republican, Democrat and otherwise, must speak loudly in one voice to tell the president, we will not let you seize executive power in the name of fabricated emergencies.”
