Friday, Congresswoman Barbara Lee joined Rep. Karen Bass, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus at a hearing in San Ysidro, California, to examine the humanitarian migrant crisis at the US-Mexico border.

The hearing specifically highlighted the devastating effect that Migrant Protection Protocol (otherwise known as Remain in Mexico) and other immigration policies have on African immigrants seeking asylum.

“Trump’s white nationalist agenda has been harming immigrants since Day 1 of his presidency," said Congresswoman Lee. "This hearing showed us exactly how Stephen Miller and Trump have been working to keep people from “s**thole” countries out of America. These cruel and bigoted policies have no place in a nation built by immigrants from all walks of life, and we all must keep pushing back so that his xenophobic vision of America does not become our America.”
