Rep. Grijalva on Trump Visit to Arizona
TUCSON— Today, President Trump is visiting Yuma, Arizona to observe border wall construction and later stopping in Phoenix to speak with students. This comes as the COVID-19 emergency reaches crisis levels in Arizona, with large outbreaks in border cities and even confirmed cases among border wall construction crews. In response, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement:
“Arizonans have a front-row seat to the failures of the Trump Administration. From his failure to get Arizonans the resources we need to fight and contain the COVID-19 outbreak to the rampant destruction of the environment and border communities to construct his useless vanity wall, his presidency is an unmitigated disaster for Arizona families. Now, as COVID-19 spreads among the crews constructing his border wall and threatens to impact small border communities, Trump stops in Yuma for applause.
“The only thing Trump has accomplished over the past few years is sowing division, demonizing those who are different, and leaving this country worse off in the long run. I will continue standing alongside my brothers and sisters to reject his divisiveness and stand up for the inclusive values and diverse communities we hold dear in Southern Arizona.”
