According to a January 29th posting on the Times Union web site, U.S. Congressional Representative Elise Stefanik (R-Essex County) offered the following at the New York Conservative Party’s PAC conference on Sunday:
“I think it is rushed and overly broad. I’ve been supportive on the House Armed Services Committee (of) giving precedence [JK:I think she meant preference] to Afghans and Iraqis who have worked with us as translators. I think it was misguided. And I do think any type of immigration reform when it comes to our visa program should come through Congress.”
In contrast, Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) said he did not know enough to offer an opinion on President Trump’s executive order.
