An Exhausting Week, but Well Worth It

Summer 2021 Town Halls

It's been an exhausting week, but well worth it. We just wrapped up a series of in-person town halls all over the district, and I want to thank the hundreds of people who showed up. It was great to see and hear from so many folks! Also a special thanks to Rep. William Timmons who joined me in Spartanburg, the dozens of law enforcement officers who kept us all safe, and all the venues…

Everything That’s Honorable and Compassionate and Decent About Our Law Enforcement Officers

| Posted in Blog

If there’s one photo that captures everything that’s honorable and compassionate and decent about our law enforcement officers, it’s this one. Tyler Terry is a suspect in multiple murders here in South Carolina and Missouri. After opening fire on a Chester County Sheriff’s Deputy during a high-speed pursuit back on May 17th, a weeklong manhunt ensued. Over 300 officers from numerous…

One-Way Ticket to a Socialistic Welfare State

| Posted in Blog

The agenda outlined by President Biden on Wednesday night is a one-way ticket to a socialistic welfare state with astronomical taxes, and government encroaching on every aspect of our lives.  His vision for our nation involves growing the size of almost every corner of the federal government. (With the exception of our military, to nobody’s surprise.) There’s simply no room to talk…

Officer Brian Sicknick

He was a hero, just like EVERY man and woman who walks the "thin blue line." Only this particular hero made the ultimate sacrifice.   Officer Brian Sicknick sustained grave injuries on January 6th while protecting the Capitol from criminal rioters. Despite the best efforts of EMTs, doctors and nurses, he succumbed to those injuries a day later.   Earlier this…

Ralph Norman (R-SC) introduced legislation to honor the bravery displayed by the Officer Brian Sicknick of the United States Capitol Police ("USCP") during the riots at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021.

More Fallout from Day One

| Posted in Blog

More fallout from Day #1 of the Biden Administration. We need some quick answers on this.   One of the things Mr. Biden did last week was place a 100-day moratorium on most deportations. Over 14,000 illegal immigrants had been in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”).   Of those, more than 70% have either been charged with, or convicted of,…

A Few Remarks

| Posted in Blog

We have heavy hearts today with the news of Brian Sicknick, an officer with the U.S. Capitol Police, who died last night from injuries sustained during Wednesday's riot at the Capitol. His killer deserves nothing less than the full weight of American justice. If there's a silver lining within this tragedy, I hope it's a national awakening to the importance of our law enforcement…

National First Responders Day

| Posted in Blog

NEW BILL – Earlier this month, I introduced a new legislation in the House with Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) that would designate National First Responders Day as one of our legal public holidays. October 28th is when we typically recognize National First Responders Day. But most people would never know that because every day is “National Something or Other Day.” There are literally…
