Rep. Posey's Statement on Recent Travel Restrictions


Washington, January 30, 2017 - Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) issued the following statement regarding recent travel restrictions issued by the President:

“Allowing unvetted immigration into the United States when we have been told there will be terrorists among them is risky and dangerous. I have supported pausing our refugee and immigration programs from nations that we know pose a serious national security threat and implementing 9/11 Commission recommendations, such as putting in place a reliable entry/exit system. In the past, presidents have rightly initiated similar travel restrictions. Our first responsibility is to protect the homeland, and we must do all we can to guard against terrorist threats to our nation.”
