SARATOGA, NY— Today Team Elise released the following statements on the Disgraceful, Dishonest, and Dangerous Media Smears:
Statement from Congresswoman Stefanik:
“Our nation is heartbroken and saddened to hear the tragic news of the horrific loss of life in Buffalo, NY.
“As a New Yorker, I am praying for the entire community and loved ones. It is a tragic reminder as we begin National Police Week, that we must particularly thank and honor our law enforcement and first responders who continue to face skyrocketing violent crimes across the nation.”
Statement from Alex DeGrasse, Senior Adviser:
“Any implication or attempt to blame the heinous shooting in Buffalo on the Congresswoman is a new disgusting low for the Left, their Never Trump allies, and the sycophant stenographers in the media. The shooting was an act of evil and the criminal should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Despite sickening and false reporting, Congresswoman Stefanik has never advocated for any racist position or made a racist statement.
She opposes mass amnesty for illegal immigrants and Joe Biden’s wide open border. Like the vast majority of Americans, she opposes giving illegal immigrants the right to vote which NY Democrats support and have made legal in New York City. She strongly supports legal immigration and is one of the national leaders credited with diversifying the Republican Party through candidate recruitment and messaging.
We thank the groveling hacks in the media for reminding voters that Republicans oppose amnesty and will secure the border while Democrats support mass amnesty and voting rights for illegals. This is Joe Biden’s border crisis and crime crisis across America and the Left and their allies in the media will do anything to help Joe Biden pass the buck. Congresswoman Stefanik will never stop fighting to secure our borders and secure our elections.”
