Councilmember Graham calls for WMATA to Focus on Transportation and Not Immigration
Washington, DC - In a Council oversight hearing on Tuesday on transportation, Councilmember Graham questioned WMATA’s Executive Director and CEO John Catoe on his knowledge of reported Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) interrogations of Latino commuters in the Washington Metro area.
Mr. Catoe stated, “We are not in the business of enforcing immigration laws. That’s the responsibility of federal agencies.” Mr. Catoe disassociated himself and WMATA from any ICE operations on the WMATA system.
