Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Overriding the President’s JASTA Veto
“Today, Congress refused to let foreign threats dictate American policy. We put 9/11 families first. That a foreign government could hide behind sovereign immunity after slaughtering Americans in our homeland was an outrage, and Congress properly rectified it. Every American victim of terror deserves the chance to seek well-deserved justice against individuals and governments.”
-- Congressman Dan Donovan serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He is New York City’s only Republican representative.
While pushing for JASTA passage, Donovan shared personal appeals from 9/11 widows with Congressional leaders. He also penned an op-ed in the New York Post.
