Mr. Speaker, the communities I represent in Buffalo and Western New York have a long, proud tradition of welcoming immigrants and refugees from all over the world. We're a city of good neighbors and a nation of immigrants. The Trump administration's position of a Muslim travel ban, proposals to build a wall, egregious policy to tear kids from their families.
Americans respect the rule of law, hard work and hard truth. We are measured as a nation by power and strength, certainly, but equally by goodness and compassion. These are the values that made America great again, again, and again.
I yield back the balance of my time.
