Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik led a letter calling on President Biden to cease any transportation of illegal immigrants from the Southern Border to New York State and requesting the location and status of each illegal immigrant transferred to New York.
This call follows reporting on video footage that shows illegal immigrants arriving by plane in White Plains, New York.
“We urge you to immediately cease any activities of transporting illegal immigrants by plane, or any other method, from the Southern Border to New York State. Following your DHS’s recent response, we demand you provide Congress and all New Yorkers with the current location and status of each illegal immigrant you have transferred to our state. The New Yorkers we represent are entitled to know how your failure to address the crisis at our Southern Border continues to impact their communities and day-to-day lives,” Stefanik led the lawmakers in writing.
Representatives Lee Zeldin (NY-01), Andrew Garbarino (NY-02), Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), Claudia Tenney (NY-22), and Chris Jacobs (NY-27) joined Stefanik in sending this letter.
