Statement on Trump’s Visit to Minnesota

Margaret Anderson Kelliher issued the following Statement on Trump's visit to Minnesota:

"Vulnerable children and families are experiencing the terror of being torn apart at the Mexico-United States border as a result of the Donald Trump administration's unethical policies. In the midst of this crisis that could be resolved by his singular action, Trump is campaigning in Duluth, Minnesota. He is literally positioning himself as geographically far as possible from the families whose suffering he has caused. Instead of parading around Duluth touting failed economic policies, the President should stop tearing children from their parents in what the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights calls an illegal action and serious violation of the rights of children. 

We must do better. In Congress, you can count on me to bring Trump and his cronies to the Oversight Committee and hold him accountable for his blatant disregard for our values."
