Press Release

Congressman Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s Executive Order on Immigration: 

“In the past I have supported increased vetting of those wishing to enter our country. That said, I have reservations with how the Administration has gone about this process with a broad stroke of the pen, instead of working with Congress to ensure a dialogue and getting to a sensible solution that protects Americans at home and our troops abroad while maintaining our core values and respect for Constitutional rights.”
