Glens Falls, NY: Congresswoman Elise Stefanik joins the NYS Conservative Party, NYGOP, and all of the North Country’s GOP State Senators and Assembly Members in opposition to the reckless immigration agenda of Democrats in Albany and in Washington, DC to expand sanctuary cities across New York, provide driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, and to provide sweeping amnesty for illegal immigrants.
“The reckless immigration agenda of Democrats in Albany and in Washington, DC would make the already hard job of law enforcement officers even harder by implementing state policies that circumvent federal policy,” said Stefanik. “Let me be clear: I oppose giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, any expansion of sanctuary cities in NY, or any amnesty to illegal immigrants. Legitimizing and recognizing illegal immigration is a step towards turning New York into a sanctuary state. Our nation needs comprehensive immigration reform, which starts by securing our border. Last Congress, I was proud to vote for the rule of law and to defund sanctuary cities.”
“It is disappointing that my opponent supports giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, but has yet to stand up for what she believes in and to publicly endorse the new immigration policy of her own party,” said Stefanik.
