Pascrell Proudly Supports Ukraine Lend Lease
American Arsenal of Democracy will flow supplies and weaponry to Ukraine to help repel murderous Russian invaders
Washington, DC, April 28, 2022
U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today spoke emphatically on the floor of the House of Representatives in favor of S.3522, the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act to send more American supplies and weaponry to Ukraine to help defeat Russia’s barbaric invasion.
Representing one of the largest Ukrainian American communities in the United States, Pascrell has been a longtime critic of Vladimir Putin’s criminal regime and has demanded harsh punishment for Putin and the Russian economy and continuous aid for Ukraine.
On March 11, 2022, Rep. Pascrell called on President Biden to significantly raise the number of refugees our nation resettles and accelerate refugee resettlement for Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s illegal invasion. Pascrell urged the President to create an expedited process for those with familial ties to legal permanent residents in the United States. Soon thereafter, the President raised the refugee cap to 100,000.
The text of Rep. Pascrell’s prepared remarks is below.
