Cole Applauds President Trump’s Plan for Immigration Reform
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after President Donald Trump unveiled a commonsense proposal to improve America’s immigration system – including solutions to secure the southern border and ensure a fair and lawful entry process for new immigrant residents.
“I applaud President Trump for continuing to propose real solutions to deal with America’s broken immigration system and preserve America’s great standing and leadership in the world,” said Cole. “The president is right that reforms are desperately needed to address the humanitarian and security crisis at the southern border. But he is also wise to recognize that our system for accepting new residents doesn’t always put America first. In the days ahead, I look forward to working with the president on this urgent issue, and I urge my Democratic colleagues to join the discussion. Together, we can find reforms that help the American people.”
