Washington, DC – Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragán (D-CA), Member of the Natural Resources Committee and Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Task Force on Clean Energy, Environment, Public Lands, and Water issued the following statement on President Trump’s Executive Orders on climate and the environment today.
“President Trump’s executive order guts our climate policies and clean energy jobs in order to boost the profits of corporate polluters. In my district, there are kids who walk around with asthma inhalers around their neck. These actions are an attack on the very air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land on which we stand. My constituents and I care about a safe, clean and healthy environment and we will not let the Trump Administration get away with destroying it.”
