Lily Tang Williams Statement Supporting Texas Governor Greg Abbott

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Weare, New Hampshire
January 26, 2024
Contact: Richard Zang Richard.Zang@unh.edu

President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border. Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect US citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.

NH Republican Congressional Candidate, District 2, Lily Tang Williams, said:

“I stand with Governor Greg Abbott and the State of Texas in utilizing every tool and strategy to secure the border. Because the Biden Administration abdicated its constitutional compact duties to the states, Texas has the right to protect the sovereignty of our states and our nation.”

“The southern border is a complete disaster and my opponent Ann Kuster is supporting President Biden’s undemocratic subversion of the rule of law which is condescending to the American people and the US Congress. It is just another example of Anne Kuster towing the Democratic party line instead of focusing on what’s good for New Hampshire and the nation.”

Lily Tang Williams is a Chinese-American who survived Mao’s Cultural Revolution. She came to the U.S. legally in 1988. She has offered her immigration policy on her website, www.lilytangwilliams.com. Moreover, considering that Texas has 28 legal ports of entry, her policy also includes a solution to illegal immigration:

“Border security is essential for our national security. We must enforce current laws, build necessary barriers to stop drug smuggling, human trafficking, and prevent people who want to harm us from entering our country. Without a border, we do not have a country.”

“To streamline the process and encourage people only to come here legally, those who insist on crossing the border illegally should be detained, identified, and sent back. Thus, the practice of crossing our borders illegally, then immediately claiming sanctuary to somehow sanitize coming here illegally, must end; no more catch and release.”

Williams Statement on Maine’s Secretary of State Barring Trump from Ballot

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Weare, New Hampshire
December 29, 2023
Contact: Richard Zang <Richard.Zang@unh.edu>

Responding to the news of the Maine Secretary-of-State removing former President Donald Trump from the ballot in the state of Maine, NH Republican Congressional Candidate, District 2, Lily Tang Williams, said: 

“I never thought after I escaped Communist/Fascist China, I would ever see the judicial system in my new chosen country weaponized for political persecution. Regardless of how one personally feels about our former president, Donald Trump, he is entitled to what forms the bedrock of the United States judicial system; that is, the presumption of innocence.

Ironically, the insurrection clause that both Colorado and Maine have used to bar him from running for elected office – the 14th amendment – is one of three amendments (5th, 6th, and 14th) that collectively form a fair-trial notion not found in all civilized countries: innocent until proven guilty. Many countries operate from guilty until proven innocent. There’s even more irony here: Not only has Donald Trump not been found guilty of insurrection, Special Counsel Jack Smith did not even seek indictment of the former president for insurrection. 

If this weren’t bad enough, there’s still more: The Democrats have been saying for years that Trump is trying to do away with democracy itself. And yet they attempted not once, but twice, to have him impeached so that he could no longer be able to ever run for president again. And now, they’re attempting to have him removed from as many states’ ballots as they can. 

As honest Abe reminded us at Gettysburg in 1863, our government is ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ Accordingly, the people should decide if Trump should be our next president, not the courts, nor secretaries of state. The Biden Administration and his party are the real threats to our Republic and its representative democracy.”

Lily Tang Williams, Republican Candidate for New Hampshire’s Second District seat in Congress, spoke out today on the Israel-Hamas war. “Last Saturday — the Jewish Sabbath and the Simchat Torah holiday — the world saw the culmination of decades of Israeli attempts to coexist with radical elements among their many Muslim neighbors.”  She said. “The Hamas forces now in control of the Gaza Strip launched the single most effective attack on Judaism since the Holocaust.” 

As the atrocities continue to unfold, “My heart goes out to the people of Israel. Indeed, to Jews all over the world.” She said. The candidate noted that she joins leaders in this country condemning the acts of wickedness by Hamas, calling for the return of hostages to their families, and for an eventual end to the violence. “Unfortunately, violence will, no doubt, escalate in the coming weeks and months. But I hope we can unite in our resolve to stand with the people of Israel, no matter our political party.” Ms. Williams said.

Lily Tang Williams Announces Candidacy for US House — Brings Inspirational American Dream Story to New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: lily4congress@lilytangwilliams.com

Lily Tang Williams, a passionate advocate for individual liberty, parental rights, free markets and free enterprise, has declared her candidacy for the United States Congress in New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District. With a unique background that includes overcoming poverty and the horrors of communism in her native country China, Williams embodies the American dream and is ready to fight for the people of her district.

“I am living the American dream,” affirms Williams. “I have experienced firsthand the transformative power of freedom, opportunity, and hard work. The radical leftists rooted in Marxism who use identity politics to divide our people, destroy American values, weaponize our children through indoctrination remind me of the same tactics that Mao used when I was growing up. I fear the country I love is becoming like the country I left.”

Williams is a staunch defender of individual freedom and constitutional rights. Her own experiences have instilled in her a profound appreciation for the principles enshrined in the United States Constitution, including the protection of freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, equal protection under the law and the preservation of privacy rights. She is a true believer of the Granite State motto: LIVE FREE OR DIE.

Lily Tang Williams’s candidacy brings a unique perspective and an inspirational American dream story to the forefront of New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District and the national stage. Her unwavering commitment to freedom, prosperity, parental rights and her own firsthand experience of the struggles currently faced by many in our society make her a powerful advocate for positive change.

Weare, NH – Today, Lily Tang Williams, Republican Congressional Candidate in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, released the following statement following Bob Burns’ Victory.

“I want to thank the thousands of people who supported me in my primary for Congress. The people of New Hampshire have been left behind and forgotten by the socialist policies of Ann Kuster. This election is too important to stand on the sidelines while Kuster’s policies hurt New Hampshire’s families. That’s why I’m proud to stand alongside Bob Burns in his race for Congress. The 2nd District is in desperate need of new leadership that will put people ahead of politics. Ann Kuster has been a rubber stamp for Joe Biden and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist policies. I know Bob will bring much-needed relief and prosperity to the people of New Hampshire.”

“For the past 20 years we have seen a country that has continued down a path of big government socialism.  This is not the Country that I came to America for.  I didn’t come to this country to rely on government.  Congresswoman Ann Kuster has voted for these Socialist policies.  I am the only candidate that can debate  and defeat Ann Kuster, because I have lived through them in poverty.  We can not continue to have politicians that ignore the needs of people in New Hampshire, push for their far left agendas on the backs of middle-class families, small business and my children’s American Dream. It is time for a change in Washington DC. I will not let socialists and communists destroy my new country because I will be in their way.”

Contact: gwosewick@fp1.com

Weare, NH – Today, Lily Tang Williams, Republican Congressional Candidate in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, signed the pledge to oppose any new taxes while serving in Congress.

“Today it was my honor to stand alongside New Hampshire GOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek and President of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. While Congresswoman Kuster has been in Congress, there hasn’t been a tax she didn’t like. The working class families of New Hampshire need a break. Today I signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge because we cannot continue to levy the mistakes of bloated government on working families. Small businesses have suffered because of unfair and overly complex tax codes and enough is enough. I was proud to stand alongside many fellow Granite Staters committed to lowering taxes and cutting costs”

The flagship project of Americans for Tax Reform is the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a written promise by legislators and candidates for office that commits them to oppose any effort to increase income taxes on individuals and businesses. Today the Taxpayer Protection Pledge is offered to every candidate for state and federal office and to all incumbents.

Weare, NH – Today, Lily Tang Williams, Republican Congressional Candidate in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, participated in the Salem Chamber of Commerce Candidates Night Forum and illustrated why she is the best candidate for small business.

“Under Congresswoman Ann Kuster, New Hampshire small businesses have suffered. Record inflation due to bad policies and reckless spending has led to rising costs and businesses shutting their doors. We cannot continue to mortgage our children’s future to make up for the mistakes of our current politicians. The path to prosperity is through lower taxes, support of free market enterprise, and less regulation. Representative Kuster has chosen time and time again to align herself with socialist policies that are reminiscent of what I saw in China. Small business in New Hampshire can literally not afford another term of Ann Kuster.”
