6.2 Million Illegal Crossings

| Posted in Blog

Over the weekend, it was quietly announced that we broke another monthly record for illegal immigration along our southern border. Almost 303,000 that we know about in September alone. That includes 269,735 who were apprehended by our Border Patrol, plus 33,203 who were chased by authorities but managed to escape into our country. Think about that. Over THIRTY-THREE THOUSAND illegal…

June 1st Tele-Town Hall Replay

| Posted in Blog

With thousands of constituents on the phone, I covered a wide variety of topics yesterday during my telephone town hall. This include a long discussion on the the debt ceiling "deal" and our nation's massive debt problem. For those who missed it, you can catch a full reply here...

CBP Reporting DAILY RECORD Numbers

| Posted in Blog

Our Border Patrol is reporting DAILY RECORD numbers of illegal immigrants. And that's before an explosive surge is expected to hit at midnight when Title 42 ends. Meanwhile, the only thing this inept President can manage say is things will be "a bit chaotic for a while." Biden and Dems brought this border crisis upon us. If they actually cared about our nation (and wellbeing of these…

Secure the Border Act of 2023

| Posted in Blog

There should be a major vote this week in the House on an important immigration bill known as the Secure the Border Act of 2023 (H.R. 2). Last night, we were up past midnight in the Rules Committee ironing out parameters for the debate and vote on this legislation. President Biden has done so much to weaken border security, while encouraging and facilitating illegal immigration.…

Title 42 Ends Next Week

| Posted in Blog

Get ready: Title 42 is set to expire one week from today, on May 11th. For those who need a refresher: Title 42 is the temporary policy that allows our border officials to turn away individuals, without a hearing, who are apprehended while trying to enter our country illegally. It was a Covid mitigation policy implemented back in 2020 to help keep holding facilities from becoming too…

Remarks at CPAC

It was an honor be part of a special forum this morning at CPAC with Rep. Scott Perry, where we covered a wide variety of important issues facing Congress. The weaponization of government, border security, the Speaker's election, China, and more... nothing was off limits. Give a listen!

Tonight's State of the Union Address

| Posted in Blog

I’m not expecting much from the State of the Union address tonight. We’ll hear a lot of platitudes and cherry-picked statistics, but nothing meaningful in terms of policy or vision. If you’re inclined to tune in to President Biden’s remarks tonight, I’d invite you to keep these facts in the back of your mind: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: 4.5 million people have illegally crossed our southern…

Alarming Chinese Surveillance

| Posted in Blog

News about this Chinese surveillance balloon currently hovering over the continental United States is yet ANOTHER alarming development from the communist regime. China is claiming it's a benign balloon intended for scientific research, which just happened to float over into our airspace. The problem is that very little that government claims can be trusted. And the time for China to…

The Ending Catch and Release Act

| Posted in Blog

Joe Biden’s border policies are the primary reasons for the surge of illegal migrants along our southern border – there’s just no arguing otherwise. Before leaving Washington this week, I signed on as an original co-sponsor to Rep. Andy Biggs’ new bill to address two of those policies. The first is known as “catch & release.” For those who are apprehended by our Border Patrol,…

I get a lot of questions about what Republicans will do next year when we take back control of the House of Representatives. These are important questions. After all, we can talk forever about spiraling inflation, record illegal immigration, rising violent crime, foreign policy disasters, fentanyl crisis, “woke” education programs, out of control government bureaucracies, etc. But it’s…
