Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) released a statement in response to news that the U.S. Navy is proposing to construct detention centers for immigrants in California including a camp for as many as 47,000 immigrants at the former Naval Weapons Station in Concord.

“STOP! The Administration needs to take a time out. This is no way to effectuate intelligent immigration policy, including for those seeking asylum. This is absolute madness and I oppose it wholeheartedly. If the Administration wants to have a rational dialogue about fixing our immigration system, I am happy to do that, but making up immigration policy on the fly is just wrong. We will fight this in every way we can.”
