Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the below statement following the passage of H.R. 6:

“House Democrats’ latest piece of openly partisan legislation not only does nothing to fix the crisis at our Southern border, it is not a serious proposal to fix our broken immigration system,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I am supportive of commonsense measures to fix our legal immigration system and secure our border. Unfortunately, H.R. 6 is a sweeping amnesty bill that will expand the flow of illegal immigration, allow criminals and gang members to enter our country, and make our Customs and Border Patrol Officer’s jobs significantly more difficult. I have broken with my party in the past to take steps to fix our legal immigration system and secure the border, and I urge Speaker Pelosi to bring a bipartisan bill to the Floor that can pass the Senate, be signed into law by the President, and actually fix our country’s broken immigration system.”
