Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Stefanik voted against H.R.6 – the Dream and Promise Act of 2021. She issued the following statement:

“Since taking office, I have consistently opposed amnesty, supported increased border security, resources for our border patrol officers and law enforcement, and fixing our legal immigration system. The Dream and Promise Act of 2021 undermines each of these critical goals by providing mass amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants and granting green cards to illegal immigrants not currently living or working in the United States, gang members, and individuals with criminal convictions. Further, this bill does not provide critical funding for our U.S. Border Patrol Agents, many of whom are from the North Country and have been temporarily reassigned to the southern border to address the worst border crisis in decades caused by President Biden’s disastrous policies.”
