In response to President Trump’s remarks at the joint session of Congress, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) said,

“We do need to enforce our laws, and criminals should be deported. However, undocumented immigrants are not a major threat to our nation. The number of undocumented people in the U.S. has fallen in the last decade, and they are no more likely to commit crimes here than people with legal status. We should not waste law enforcement time and tear apart peaceful communities, deporting military families or DACA recipients. We need to practice common sense and common decency.”
