Tucson, AZ – In response to the passage of the Congressional resolution to block President Trump’s Declaration of National Emergency, LCV issued the following statement from SVP of Community and Civic Engagement, Jennifer Allen Aroz:

“We applaud Congress for taking action to stop Trump’s power grab to force his xenophobic, racist and environmentally destructive wall. While he is still likely to veto, Trump should instead accept that there is no national security emergency at the southern border, there is only a manufactured crisis which is endangering families attempting to seek asylum or economic survival.”
