Illinois Senate President John J. Cullerton said Trump’s overdue reversal on immigrant families still leaves many important questions unanswered.
“It’s about time President Trump finally recognized the inhumane and obscene policy of separating children from their families was a mistake. But his decision to reverse that policy is merely a first step. More needs to be done. What is the president going to do with these children and their families? Addressing that question is going to require more tough decisions and rational, adult leadership from the White House. An opportunity exists at this moment to recognize the reality we all live in and take meaningful action on immigration reform. I hope the president and Congress will seize the opportunity.”
