Standing Strong to Protect the American People

January 29, 2017

DALLAS, TX – Pete Sessions, representative of the 32nd Congressional District of Texas, released the following statement in response to actions taken by President Trump to make our country safer:

“After eight years of a president who refused to even acknowledge terrorists for what they are – radical Islamic terrorists – I am happy that we finally have a leader who is willing to not only acknowledge this problem, but stand up and take active measures to secure our nation and protect the American people.

“I have always believed that our main priority is to protect the American people and defend our nation. That is why I support the President’s overall goal to tighten our screening process and believe that we need to take deliberate and decisive steps to stop anyone who aims to undermine our nation’s rule of law and threaten our freedom.”
