Statement from Rep. Engel On JASTA Override

Washington D.C.—Representative Eliot L. Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement on the veto override of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) by Congress:

“Every September, I participate in memorial ceremonies across the 16th Congressional District to honor my constituents who lost their lives on September 11th.  I know their families.  I’ve stood with them in grief, and now I stand with them in seeking justice.  I could never vote to deny families their day in court.”
