Senator Merkley: (8:10 p.m.)

  • Spoke on U.S. immigration policy.
    • "That's been the attitude of America. And she says the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door. Well, that golden door, Lady Liberty's torch lighting the path has been desecrated by President Trump because he's got a new inscription, a new message he wanted to send, and that message, he called it a deterrent. That if you are fleeing oppression abroad and you wash up here on the shores of the United States of America, we're going to put you in handcuffs."
