Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement after the President’s State of the Union address:

“Tonight, President Trump communicated the strong state of our economy and military in his inspirational State of the Union address,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Protecting our national security, strengthening our infrastructure, lowering the cost of healthcare, fighting against pediatric cancer, eliminating HIV/AIDS, securing our border, and fighting for the interests of hardworking American families are priorities that both sides of the aisle can and should come together to achieve. President Trump called on Congress to join together in a bipartisan fashion to work on behalf of the American public, and I am looking forward to negotiating in good faith with my colleagues to secure our border and fix our broken immigration system.”
