Stefanik Urges President Biden to Discuss Northern Border During G-7 Summit with Prime Minister TrudeauI urge President Biden to discuss reopening the northern border with Prime Minister Trudeau at the G-7 and convey the immediate need to begin restoring normal travel between our two nations.
“The recent and drastic surge in Anti-Semitic violence, attacks, and rhetoric is vile and un-American, and I am proud to take action to ensure the perpetrators of these evil hate crimes are brought to justice. Every Member of Congress has a moral obligation to stand strongly with the Jewish-American community and speak up on their behalf, and I am proud to do so,” said Congresswoman Stefanik.
“Broadband is a critical component of our nation’s infrastructure, and far too many North Country families, businesses, and students lack reliable internet access. I am proud to support the Broadband for Rural America Act, an innovative solution that will target funding for the most rural corners of New York’s 21st Congressional District and ensure buildout is occurring in our underserved areas,” said Congresswoman Stefanik.
“North Country working families greatly depend on child care providers while they earn a living, yet many of our communities do not have enough options for child care. The American Rescue Plan did not address this growing problem, failing to invest in long-term solutions that would increase the quantity of child care businesses, especially in rural communities. My legislation offers a proven solution by allowing states to invest in Family Child Care Networks that can create new child care providers and enhance the viability of these incredibly important small businesses in our local communities.”
"Most importantly, I want to thank the voters of New New York's 21st Congressional District, who I am honored to represent each and every day, and fight for them."
