Reichert Statement on President’s Executive Order on Immigration

Washington, DC – Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s Executive Order, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.”

“Careful vetting to ensure the safety of the American people is the responsibility of the federal government and one I take very seriously,” said Congressman Reichert. “Unfortunately what we saw this past weekend was mass confusion and miscommunication between government agencies and the improper apprehension of people legally allowed to be in the US. I urge the administration to work with Congress on solutions that protect our borders while maintaining our nation's dedication to compassion and religious freedom.”
