Statement of Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) on President Trump's Executive Order on Immigration

“As part of his strategy to make the safety and security of the American people his top priority, President Trump believes a pause in immigration from unstable regions is warranted.  However, this weekend’s confusion is an indication that the details of this executive order were not properly scrutinized. Among others, reconsideration should be given to courageous individuals who served as interpreters for our military and properly vetted refugees.

“Congress has important oversight responsibilities over all executive orders, which we intend to exercise.”
