Two items making the news this Monday morning from D.C. First is this meaningless “immigration deal” that a handful of Senators reached over the weekend.
This nonsense is DEAD ON ARRIVAL over in the House. This is not a serious effort by the Senate, but instead is a messaging bill designed to allow liberals the ability to claim they tried to solve the border crisis. (A crisis their… Read more »
I’m heading back to D.C. this morning. Two quick notes about the utter chaos along our southern border.
First, you may have heard news about a so-called deal on immigration being ironed out in the Senate. According to CNN, “Under the proposed deal, the Department of Homeland Security would be granted new emergency authority to shut down the border if daily average migrants crossing… Read more »
"Federal authorities caught a terrorist at the U.S. southern border and released him into the country, where he roamed freely for nearly a year before being arrested in Minnesota just days ago."
An initial screening allowed him to be released into the interior of the U.S. But one year later, they re-evaluated and concluded this individual was, in fact, a suspected terrorist.
I get… Read more »
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… Read more »
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… Read more »
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.… Read more »
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… Read more »
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! Read more »
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… Read more »
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… Read more »
