November 1, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement in response to President Trump’s proposed funding cuts to anti-terrorism efforts:

“I have always believed and continue to believe that immigration is good for America. President Trump, instead of politicizing and dividing America, which he always seems to do at times of national tragedy, should be focusing on the real solution - anti-terrorism funding - which he proposed cutting in his most recent budget.

“I’m calling on the President to immediately rescind his proposed cuts to this vital anti-terrorism funding.”
