Slaughter Reacts to the Firing of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates

January 30, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (NY-25) released the following statement in reaction to President Trump firing Acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enforce his unconstitutional executive order banning travel from Muslim countries and suspending the refugee program:

“This is very reminiscent of President Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre. The president’s decision to fire Acting Attorney General Sally Yates is a blatant politicization of the agency charged with upholding our constitution. This is another troubling day for our country.”
