Statement: Ortiz Opposes President Trump’s Executive Order Restricting Immigration and Entry by Foreign Nationals

March 7, 2017

"I remain disappointed by the President's treatment of people who overstay their visas remaining as significant threats to national security and public safety. This country should also never bar individuals from entering this country based on their religion or country of national origin. It's un-American."

Ortiz introduced an Assembly Resolution urging the Governor, Attorney General and local officials to protect individuals seeking refuge or entry in the State of New York.
