A very special thanks to Congressman Jeff Duncan and Rep. William Timmons! The three of us hosted an incredible joint tele-town hall on April 5th, with tens of thousands of constituents joining us on the phone from back home in South Carolina. There were many great questions about inflation, illegal immigration, Ukraine, and other issues facing our country. You can catch a full replay…

One Missed Opportunity After Another

| Posted in Blog

Did any of you watch the State of the Union earlier tonight? It was a spin job like no other. Not to beat a dead horse, but inflation is at a 40 year high under Biden's watch. His policies have enabled & encouraged more than 2 million people to illegally cross our border in the last year. Violent crime is rising. We're now $30 trillion in national debt, while he wants trillions more…

Busses, Trains, Event Taxis

| Posted in Blog

On the return flight from my most recent trip to the southern border, over half the passengers were escorted onto the plane while holding cardboard signs that read, “I don’t speak English.” Do you want to guess what that was all about? Busses, trains, even taxis have been used to relocate illegal immigrants away from the southern border. So recent news that the Biden Administration has…

Christmas Came a Little Early This Year

| Posted in Blog

Christmas came a little early this year!  1️⃣ The socialist “Build Back Broke” legislation stalled out yesterday.  2️⃣ Separately, the Senate Parliamentarian ruled, again, that Democrats could not include amnesty in that legislation.  And 3️⃣ Biden backed off trying to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 each in “legal settlements.” All of this is promising news heading into…

Update on "Remain in Mexico" Asylum Policy

| Posted in Blog

NEW: there was a big milestone today in the fight against Biden’s self-inflicted immigration crisis. Late this morning, his administration announced that an “agreement had been reached” with the Mexican government that would keep asylum seekers in that country until their cases for asylum could be heard in U.S. immigration court. Good. However, don’t think today’s announcement…

Add One More No Vote to My Growing Tally

| Posted in Blog

There was a lady sitting towards the back of the room at my town hall a couple months ago in York County. She appeared rather upset over the number of bills I’d voted against in Congress… ever since Democrats took control of the House. In fact, she seemed to know the exact number! You know, as if my purpose in Congress should be to rubber stamp the Democrats’ socialist agenda. Clearly to…

You Shouldn’t Be Surprised at This

| Posted in Blog

$450,000 – this is how much the Biden Administration wants to pay some noncitizens from other countries… who broke our immigration laws and now are suing us – the American taxpayers – over the way they were treated in the process. The Wall Street Journal broke this news last week. I’d say it’s unbelievable, but it’s not. This is a president who stopped construction of our border wall,…

Rep. Norman Introduces Bill Establishing New Ports of Entry for Processing Migrants

| Posted in Blog

On Monday, U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman (SC-5) introduced new legislation in the House of Representatives to help address the massive surge of immigrants along our southern border.   The Stop the SURGE Act, or Stop the Surge of Unsafe Rio Grande Encampments Act, would relocate illegal immigrants from South Texas to the following newly established ports of entry for…

The Highest Levels Ever Recorded

| Posted in Blog

Wow. I can’t even express enough outrage over this. Arrests along our southern border have now reached the “highest levels ever recorded.” That’s according to unpublished Border Patrol data obtained by the Washington Post. Let’s unpack this information… Being arrested and being detained by our Border Patrol are generally two different things. Illegal immigrants are typically detained…
