Statement from Presiding Officer Kevin McCaffrey Regarding Immigration Failure

Gold Legislature Seal

The federal government’s immigration policies continue to fail, and instead of addressing the humanitarian crisis it has created President Biden would rather shift the responsibility of accepting tens of thousands of unvetted immigrants to municipalities across the country. The people of Suffolk County cannot shoulder this massive influx of immigrants into our country.

Suffolk County is not a sanctuary county, and we will not allow it to become one.

It is imperative that the Biden Administration manage this crisis, fix our immigration system and not expect communities to break under the pressures their failed policies are putting on Americans who are already financially stretched to the breaking point.
