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!

Monday Afternoon Update

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…

50 Individuals on the FBI's Terror Watch Apprehended Along Our Southern Border

| Posted in Blog

So far this year, *50* individuals on the FBI's terror watch list have been apprehended trying to cross our southern border. That's according to actual Border Patrol data. It makes total sense. If you're a terrorist, you're not wasting your time trying to get here by plane or boat. Instead, you're walking in from Mexico along with hundreds of thousands of others, because you know just…

Once Again, We’ve Broken Another Record

| Posted in Blog

I loathe every bit of what this president has done to our southern border. Last month, according to data just released, a whopping 239,416 migrants were encountered by our Border Patrol. Every month it just gets worse. Once again, we’ve broken another record. From drugs and human trafficking to massive strains on our schools, hospitals and social service, none of this appears to be a…

What’s Your Solution, Ralph?

| Posted in Blog

“What’s your solution, Ralph?” I get that question all the time, especially when I talk about wasteful spending in Congress and our $30 trillion in federal debt. Friends, our nation is heading for financial ruin. I’m so tired of being asked to vote “yes” on new spending bills with no offsets. I’m tired of bloated, wasteful government. I’m tired of agency heads who claim they can't do…
