Saratoga, NY – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement on NY-21 law enforcement being called to serve across New York State during protests and riots:

“Americans are united in support of justice for George Floyd, his family, and in the right to peaceful protest,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “The rioting, looting, destruction, and violence causing loss of life cannot be tolerated. Our New York State and NYC law enforcement needs support from the National Guard. I have heard from many families of North Country law enforcement this evening who are being called to their barracks and will be deployed across the state. Our entire community prays for the safety of ALL. We must end the dangerous rioting and violent destruction of lives.”
