Statement from Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez

MIAMI (January 11, 2018)

If true, President Trump's remarks are very unfortunate and shameful. As Mayor of Miami-Dade County, I have personally experienced the contributions of the thousands of Haitian-Americans, Salvadorans, and other residents from throughout the world who call our community home. I can attest to their hopes to build better lives for their families and to their great contributions to our beautiful community and to the United States.
