During the Call, 66% of Respondents Opposed Muslim Ban

Washington – Last night, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney held his first live “Speak with Sean” Telephone Town Hall of 2017. More than 18,000 Hudson Valley residents joined Rep. Maloney for an hour-long live telephone town hall where Rep. Maloney answered questions on a variety of topics including the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Coast Guard’s anchorage proposal, Planned Parenthood, veterans casework issues, and Social Security. Rep. Maloney also answered questions surrounding President Trump’s cabinet nominations, controversial Muslim ban, and investigation into the Trump Administration’s relationship with Russia.

“No matter what side of the aisle you’re on, I know a lot of people have questions or concerns about what is going on down in Washington and this town hall gave me the chance to answer many of their questions in front of thousands of their neighbors,” said Rep. Maloney. “Folks should know I am here to listen and get things done for them and I look forward to holding even more town halls in the coming weeks – both telephone and in-person town halls.”

During last night’s town hall, Rep. Maloney polled the audience regarding President Trump’s controversial Muslim ban. Of those who participated in the call and took the poll, 66% of respondents said they oppose the travel ban, 28% of respondents said they support it, and 6% reported they were undecided or unsure.

These bipartisan telephone town hall events are attended by constituents of all ideological and partisan persuasions, and all constituents on the call are invited to participate in the poll.
