Congressman Stupak said he enjoyed discussing US-Pakistani relations with his Pakistani-American constituents and that listening to “valid professional concerns” was enlightening. He said he joined the Pakistan Caucus to “stay abreast of issues affecting our countries.”
Welcoming Rep. Stupak on the Pakistan Caucus, Faiz Rehman, Executive Director of PALC, said: “Congressman Stupak’s membership on the Pakistan Caucus reflects a growing bi-partisan support for Pakistan and Pakistani Americans in US Congress. The rapid growth of the Caucus points toward the multi-faceted long-term US-Pakistan relations.
