For Immediate Release:

GOSHEN, NY – Alison Esposito, a 25-year veteran of the New York Police Department (NYPD), former candidate for Lieutenant Governor, and candidate for Congress in New York’s 18th Congressional District, issued the following statement after Pat Ryan voted ‘NO’ on H. Res. 1065, a bipartisan resolution denouncing the Biden’ Administration’s failed border and immigration enforcement policies, which have led to unprecedented numbers of illegal migrants and deadly drugs flowing over our southern border:

Pat Ryan tells New Yorkers that he wants to secure the border – but he’s done NOTHING to stop Joe Biden’s disastrous open border policies. If anything, he enables them. Last night, Ryan voted against a common sense bipartisan measure, with the support of dozens of Democrats, encouraging Biden to finally address the crisis and secure the southern border via his executive authority, choosing instead to continue supporting Biden’s failed open border and pro-criminal policies. 

The fact is Pat Ryan created a crisis that is endangering America’s national security and putting law-abiding New Yorkers at risk, and now is doing NOTHING to stop it. This dangerous Biden border crisis will continue as long as Pat Ryan is in Congress.

Pat Ryan has a long record of supporting open border policies. As the Ulster County Executive, Ryan made Ulster a sanctuary county and refused to work with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

In May 2023, Pat Ryan voted against the “Secure the Border Act” a comprehensive piece of legislation to address the crisis at the southern border. 

Just last week, Ryan voted against bipartisan legislation introduced after the tragic murder of college student Laken Riley, ‘the Laken Riley Act,’ which would require (ICE) to detain any illegal migrant charged with or convicted of burglary, theft, larceny, or shoplifting.

Esposito has repeatedly called out Pat Ryan for his record of failed leadership on addressing the border and migrant crisis. 

In November 2023, Esposito joined a group of candidates and elected officials to visit the Yuma section of the Southern Border to witness the Biden Border crisis firsthand.
