September 21, 2021 Press Release
The Iron Dome exists to defend civilians inside our nation’s great ally, Israel, against offensive air strikes. We saw the Iron Dome’s importance and effectiveness several months ago when the terror group, Hamas, fired thousands of rockets at Israel. It’s very telling that the ‘squad’ and their allies despise it so much. It’s even more telling that Speaker Pelosi and Democratic leadership are willing to put Israel’s safety at risk because they are unwilling to stand up to the most radical voices in their party.

Terrorists are never welcome to New York City, and that definitely includes the Taliban’s request for this week. The Biden Administration must emphatically and immediately reject this request.
September 20, 2021 Press Release
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 forever changed our lives, our nation and the world. We all remember exactly where we were, what we were doing, and the emotions of devastation, anger, resolve, uncertainty and unity we felt. As time passes, pain eases, and more and more Americans are either too young to remember or were not yet born, we cannot allow the memories to fade or fail to honor the ordinary Americans who became extraordinary heroes on that September morning and in the years that followed. Making September 11th an official Day of Remembrance will ensure that future generations recognize and appreciate the tragedy, sacrifice and resilience associated with 9/11.

This is the start of a welcome and much needed change at the Northport VA Medical Center. For too long, these vacant buildings have served no purpose and have only obstructed traffic for veterans trying to receive the care they have earned from the VA. I’m hopeful that the successful and efficient completion of this project will significantly improve the Northport VA’s infrastructure and veterans’ access to care.

There is a massive, full blown crisis at our southern border. With the policies, statements, and feckless leadership of the Biden Administration, there is a 100 percent certainty this will only get worse. All media should be reporting on this and the Administration must be forced to fix this.
