Representative Poliquin comments on presidents immigration remarks

BANGOR - Maine's second district congressman weighed in on President Trumps recent comments about immigrants, saying that discussion distracts from the border security issues.

Republican Representative Bruce Poliquin's comments come in the wake of the uproar over President Trump's reported derogatory remarks about countries from a which a lot of immigrants originate.

 

Representative Bruce Poliquin stated "Well, they're not helpful. We have some very big issues we're dealing with. Border security, making sure we end chain migration, end the visa lottery, make sure we take care of the D.A.C.A. kids. So comments like that are just not helpful."

 

Earlier Friday, the president denied using the vulgar language attributed to him in the Washington Post.
