Jan 2017: Immigration Ban
Leonard Lance said, “The Trump administration has every right to be concerned about the safety and security of the American people. And while I do support increased vetting of individuals applying to travel from countries with extensive terrorist ties or activity, the President’s current travel ban executive order appears rushed and poorly implemented.”
Lance said denial of entry into the U.S. of green card holders and those who assisted the U.S. in anti-terror activities being denied or delayed entry into the U.S. “is deeply concerning and must be remedied immediately.”
"It is Congress' role to amend our immigration laws and I strongly urge President Trump to work with legislators to enact a clear, effective, and enhanced vetting and monitoring process," Lance said.

Feb 2017: Reps. Zeldin, Roskam, Lance, and Lamborn Introduce Iran Nonnuclear Sanctions Act of 2017Congressman Zeldin (R – NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, joined with Roskam (R, IL-6), Lance (R, NJ-7), and Lamborn (R, CO-5), co-chairs of the House Republican Israel Caucus, introduce the Iran Nonnuclear Sanctions Act of 2017 (H.R.808), which targets the Islamic Republic’s support for terrorism, human rights abuses, and ballistic missile program, and restores sanctions to hold Iran accountable. Introduction of this bill comes days after U.S. officials reported that Iran carried out a medium-range ballistic missile test in violation of a United Nations Security Council resolution. “Iran’s latest ballistic missile test was again in total disregard and violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions and international law. For too long Iran has been under the impression that it can test missiles, finance terrorism and abuse its own people without ramifications. I am pleased President Trump took this action. Iran needs to get the message that its provocations will not go unanswered,” said Lance.
