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

| Posted in Blog

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!

2.27 Winter Session

Over the next seven weeks, the House is scheduled to be in session a whopping… 14 days. Oh, not to mention we’re just now heading back to D.C. today after being home for the last two weeks. *** This further illustrates how utterly ridiculous it was for some Republicans to have been angry at me and 19 others for negotiating during the House Speaker’s vote back in January. They literally…

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…

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,…

Commitment to America

| Posted in Blog

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…

Another Month, Another Record Along Biden’s Wide-open Southern Border.

| Posted in Blog

Another month, another record along Biden’s wide-open southern border. For the first time in American history, the number of encounters of illegal migrants along our southern border has surpassed TWO MILLION for the fiscal year, which runs from October 1st through September 30th. That’s according to data released yesterday by the Border Patrol. It is the President’s responsibility…

Why are we in this mess?

Friends, I’ve done everything I can in Congress to help secure our border and curb illegal immigration. But this President’s policies, I believe, are making that an impossible task. Our Border Patrol just reported over 207,416 encounters last month along our southern border, making June the fourth consecutive month in excess of 200,000. Their data shows we’ve already shattered the…
