Steve Choi, president of the New York Immigration Coalition, responded to Donald Trump’s declaration this morning of a national emergency to build The Wall. He said:

“President Trump’s temper-tantrum over building a wasteful and immoral border wall has risen to new heights – declaring a fake national state of emergency to keep a racist campaign promise. This decision not only jeopardizes the safety of thousands of asylum seekers at the U.S. southern border, but the integrity of our democracy. The strength of our nation is built from the values of providing refuge and opportunity to those who seek it, and the largest threat to that is the President himself.”
