Congressman Reed Backs President Trump For Firing Sally Yates

January 31, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Tom Reed (R, Corning) issued the following statement:

“We care about ensuring the laws of our country are enforced properly. We have to wonder why Ms. Yates failed to speak out of refugee policies prior to this point? Specifically, why was she not vocal regarding the Obama Administration’s ban on Cuban refugees in the closing weeks of his administration or in 2011 when the Obama Administration blocked Iraqi refugees for six months? Given the recent comments, we are led to believe that this is a stance is more political than substantive, which is why we believe the right action was taken by the Administration.” – Congressman Tom Reed
