Congressman Chris Collins Denounces Attempts to House Undocumented Children in New York
Congressman Chris Collins today released the following statement on news the Department of Health and Human Services is assessing additional New York locations to house undocumented children from the southern border.
“As I have said before, it is unacceptable the federal government is trying to force the hardworking taxpayers of New York to foot the bill to house undocumented immigrants,” said Congressman Chris Collins. “The President’s actions have fueled the current crises along the southern border, and now New York residents are being directly impacted by his irresponsible actions. If President Obama was committed to enforcing the immigration laws currently in place, this would not be an issue. Instead, the President has decided to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce creating an environment where wrongdoing goes unpunished.”
