CASTEN STATEMENT ON BORDER TEAR GASSING

"This Administration continues to use desperate families attempting to cross our borders in hopes of asylum as cover for its own crossing of Constitutional, legal, and moral bounds. The recent scenes at our southern border -- including children in diapers being tear-gassed -- constitute a shameful image, contrary to the vision of our forefathers and their own immigrant histories. Seeking asylum is not a crime. As a newly elected Member of Congress, I will do all that I can to stop this Administration's ongoing assault on the American character."

MCCLATCHY: DEMOCRATS LIKE SEAN CASTEN MAKING PUSH FOR GUN-SAFETY AHEAD OF ELECTION DAY

(Downers Grove, IL) November 4, 2018 - Today, McClatchy examined how candidates like Sean Casten are campaigning on the need to address gun violence in our communities and pass common-sense gun safety legislation. As a reminder, Peter Roskam long held a lifetime “A” rating from the NRA and is the third largest recipient of NRA funds in Illinois. Unlike Casten, Roskam opposes an assault weapons ban and he refused to meet with survivors of the Parkland shooting when they came to Illinois’ sixth district.
