U.S. Rep.

At the Rising Hope Mission Church in Alexandria yesterday. Rep. Don Beyer said he stood in solidarity with immigrants, declared that “we are here to make sure that the remarkable, resilient inimitable fabric of our nation of immigrants is not destroyed by the scorched-earth tactics that have come out of [the Trump] administration.” Rep. Beyer added that Trump’s policies “exist to incite fear,” to “spread terror,” to make immigrants “feel unwelcome” and to “make them flee.” Sen. Tim Kaine agreed with Rep. Beyer that Trump’s policies are designed to incite fear. Kaine added that immigrants “need to feel comfortable interacting with our law enforcement professionals,” and that what the Trump administration is doing to immigrants – targeting churches and hypothermia centers, among other abominations – “has got to stop.” I couldn’t agree more, and thank Sen. Kaine and Rep. Beyer for speaking out.
