WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the statement below following the President’s State of the Union Address:

 

"Granite Staters have been clear about what they want from Washington.  They want those elected to serve on their behalf to work together to push for shared solutions, not partisan politics.  Opportunity for economic growth resides in the hope that lives in the homes on the West Side, the small businesses on the Seacoast and the beauty of our North Country - not the federal government.  Our country will begin to flourish again when we reform our outdated tax code, reduce the burden of debt on our children, repeal regulations suffocating our small businesses and place our trust in you."

US Rep Frank Guinta (CD-1) - STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF DHS APPROPIATIONS BILL 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement after passage of H.R. 240 which reverses the President’s unilateral, executive orders on amnesty, enhances border security, provides for stringent oversight, increases transparency within the Department of Homeland Security and bolsters immigration customs enforcement:

 

“In the Granite State, we believe deeply in the rule of law and the system of checks and balances.  Unfortunately, the President’s unlawful executive orders run counter to this.  I made a promise to Granite Staters to uphold our Constitution and work diligently to strengthen and reform our broken immigration system.  The passage of H.R. 240 is a common-sense first step in modernizing our system to reward those who enter our borders the lawfully while holding those whom break our laws accountable.”
