WASHINGTON, DC — November 26, 2018 — Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement after tear gas was fired at unarmed asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border:

“It is impossible not to be outraged by the Trump Administration’s cruel actions yesterday at the U.S.-Mexico border. The deployment of tear gas on unarmed asylum seekers is the latest in a long line of human rights abuses from this Administration, which continues to erode America’s moral standing in the world.

“The children and families seeking asylum in the United States from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have fled unimaginable circumstances. Daily violence, extreme poverty and malnutrition are sadly the norm in these countries.

“U.S. immigration law and international law guarantee these migrants the right to seek asylum. The U.S. must uphold the rule of law and treat asylum-seekers with dignity and compassion.”

  1. You and your fellow DEMO RATS are the real disgrace, anything for a vote. Let them come here legally, my grandpaarents came here and had to stay on Ellis island until they were deemed to not have any diseases. They had to work to feed themselves, all you and your fellow RATS want to give them free food, schools, and healthcare. This has got to stop thank god we have a President with BALLS.
