Sempolinski: Don’t Send Illegals From NYC To Upstate

Octobr 18, 2022

Today, during his weekly press call, Congressman Joe Sempolinski responded to reports that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is proposing housing illegal immigrants in Upstate NY communities.

“I was very concerned when I saw reports of Senator Gillibrand’s proposal to house illegal immigrants in Upstate New York. We do not have the resources and means that New York City has, and quite frankly, it is a crisis created by the exact policies that the Senator has supported,” said Sempolinski. “At the end of the day, we need to address the root cause of this crisis which is the failed policies of the Biden Administration that have led to essentially open borders. I am all for legal immigration, but the President’s policies have created a system that encourages illegal immigration over doing things by the book and following our rule of law. I will always stand with the people of the 23rd who are sick and tired of politicians in Washington, Albany, and New York City inflicting them with their disastrous policies.”
