Press Release, Congressman Chris Collins

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chris Collins (R-Clarence) today released the following statement demanding Governor Andrew Cuomo stop his plans to accept Syrian refugees into New York.

“Ensuring the safety and security of our country and Western New Yorkers is my central focus,” said Congressman Collins. “At this point, we cannot guarantee with 100 percent certainty that the refugees we are accepting from Syria don’t pose a threat to our community. Until we have a process in place that achieves that goal, I am calling on Governor Cuomo to stop plans to accept Syrian refugees.”
