(WASHINGTON, D.C.) Statement from Adrianna Quintero, Executive Director of Voces Verdes, on President Trump’s speech before a joint session of Congress.
“While President Trump's speech before a joint session of Congress recognized the importance of clean air and water, the actions of his administration over the past weeks show little concern for the health of American families and the wellbeing of our communities.
"From potential cuts to the Environmental Protections Agency’s budget, to undoing rules designed to protect the Waters of the United States rule which currently protects our nation’s sources of water, it is evident that the Trump Administration is more concerned with protecting the interests of big polluters than with the well-being of our families and our planet.
“Latino leaders across the US are committed to fighting for clean water, clean air, and strong action on climate and the protection of the environment. We will be watching and will diligently work to ensure that President Trump and his administration prioritize the needs of American families over polluters."
