Attorney General James says Trump is using migrant families "as pawns in a game of political chess."

New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement in response to news that President Trump has delayed raids on migrant families by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for up to two weeks:

“With news of a delay of mass raids on migrant families across the nation, New Yorkers can breathe a short sigh of relief. Immigrants should have never been placed in jeopardy by a president who is willing to rip families apart in order to score points with his base. These families come to this country yearning for the promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, so using them as pawns in a game of political chess is immoral and reprehensible. As New York’s chief law enforcement officer, I can promise that I will do everything in my power to protect every one of our immigrants against threats from the Trump Administration.”
