“There is a culture of dishonesty that permeates through every level of Donald Trump’s administration, from the President himself to almost every member of his senior staff.
“In tonight’s State of the Union address, Donald Trump made numerous promises and exaggerations, much like he did on the campaign trail. However, the first 40 days of this administration have shown that Trump’s talk is cheap. Trump promised to ‘drain the swamp’ but placed federal agencies in the hands of billionaire donors and corporate insiders.

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Ruben Gallego issued the following statement regarding the Department of Homeland Security’s new immigration enforcement guidelines:
“The men and women of the U.S. National Guard sign up to defend our nation and the ideals it represents, not to be an extension of Donald Trump’s propaganda. It’s shameful that the Trump administration would use our National Guard to distract from the questions surrounding his campaign’s past relationship with Russia and the growing calls for an investigation from members of both parties.
“The arrest of Daniel Ramirez Medina confirms what we have all suspected: the Trump administration is indiscriminately targeting undocumented immigrants, including Dreamers, in raids across the country. Daniel Ramirez Medina should be released immediately.
“General Michael Flynn sought to undermine the foreign policy of a sitting American President. And then he lied – repeatedly and egregiously – about his actions. Donald Trump should fire Michael Flynn immediately.
"La deportación de la Sra. Rayos sería una tragedia para su familia joven. Donald Trump está separando cruelmente a una madre y a un sostén de la familia de sus hijos estadounidenses.
