“Trade policy and border security are separate issues. This is a misuse of presidential tariff authority and counter to congressional intent. Following through on this threat would seriously jeopardize passage of USMCA, a central campaign pledge of President Trump’s and what could be a big victory for the country. President Trump should consider alternatives, such as imposing a fee on the billions of dollars of remittances that annually leave the United States to Mexico, which only encourage illegal immigration and don’t help the U.S. economy. It could fund border security measures and would put economic pressure on Mexico without imposing a financial burden on U.S. consumers or harming American jobs. I’ve long supported reforms to remittance law, which haven’t become law because of opposition from big banks and other financial interests. Mexico must help get the border crisis under control and the president should use appropriate authorities to apply pressure. I’ve also called for a Safe Third Country Agreement so that Mexico cannot simply pass the buck to the United States. Mexico has a leading role to play here when asylum seekers are traversing their country without regard to the law and without consequence. Congress must also immediately fully fund border security and interior enforcement. Democrats should come to the table in a reasonable way and work to put an end to the security and humanitarian crisis on the border. I support nearly every one of President Trump’s immigration policies, but this is not one of them. I urge the president to consider other options.”
Dear Friend, My name is Henry F. Hewes. I am the ONLY Pro-Life Democrat running in the 2020 United States Presidential Election. I stand with John F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin L. King, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton (before he turned tail). I am running for President because life begins at conception and cries out to us for protection. Our Declaration of Independence and our very humanity compel us to be a part of this fight. In order to appear in the Democratic Debates, I have to have 65,000 individual donors. The amount of the donation does not matter. It can be $1.00 or $2,000.00. Please help me put a Pro-Life Advocate on the debate stage. Please make a donation of $1 or whatever you can afford to show your support. God Bless you and your family. Thank you.
