WASHINGTON - United States Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-21) issued the following statement regarding President Trump's Executive Order suspending visas from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen as well as the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.

"Keeping my constituents safe is my highest priority and I support strengthening screening procedures to ensure Americans are protected from foreign threats. However, these issues are complex and should not be addressed through hasty, unclear Executive Actions. Instead, the President and Congress should work together towards a thoughtful, constructive solution to strengthen our national security while upholding our American values."

Congressman David G. Valadao represents the 21st Congressional District, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
