Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s national emergency proclamation:

“The President’s proclamation today is a clear abuse of executive power. My Republican friends have criticized previous administrations for far less. Conservatives should be outraged by the President’s action today.

“There is no real national emergency at our border, as the facts clearly show. Our nation’s intelligence chiefs appointed by the President have recently testified before Congress that there is no national emergency at our border.

“The President’s proclamation today of a national emergency, I find very disappointing.”
