Issue Position: Fighting Terrorism and Improving America's Security
Keeping our families safe is the number one priority for Congresswoman Gillibrand and she has been a leader in Congress for passing policies that will prevent America from suffering another terrorist attack. She was a lead sponsor of implementing the bipartisan 9/11 Commission recommendations, a bill that has become law. These recommendations will provide the necessary funding for increased port, airport, border and infrastructure security.
Gillibrand has also been an ardent supporter of America's troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. She believes it is critical to provide them with the resources necessary to complete their missions, while also pressuring the Administration to responsibly redeploy from Iraq.
Congresswoman Gillibrand has consistently voted to redeploy troops from Iraq, so that more focus can be placed on fighting terrorism and creating stability in other troubled areas of the Middle East .
