MDP Statement on Far-Right Wall Rally in Detroit

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement today on behalf of MDP Chair Lavora Barnes in response to the We Build the Wall rally taking place in Detroit this evening:

“While Republican extremists, led by Steve Bannon and anti-voting rights crusader Kris Kobach, host a divisive rally in Detroit to build a wall 2,000 miles away, Democrats across town in Warren are coming together to discuss the real issues affecting Michigan’s working people and families. The contrast between the two agendas could not be any clearer — Democrats believe in uniting to solve the problems facing all Michiganders, while far-right Republicans continue their efforts to divide us in order to distract from the real issues we face, like skyrocketing healthcare costs, the opioid epidemic, and Donald Trump’s failed, corrupt presidency.”
