LAKEWOOD, CO - Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive orders to build a wall along the United States - Mexico border and invoke measures to block federal funding from sanctuary cities:

“Today’s actions by President Trump conflict with America’s values and principles of freedom, liberty and prosperity, and contradict our nation’s history of inclusiveness.

“Instead of building walls we should be building economic opportunity in our communities. We should be focusing on comprehensive immigration reform which creates American jobs, lowers our deficit, strengthens our borders, and gives millions of undocumented Americans an earned pathway to citizenship.”
