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 That’s according to unpublished Border Patrol data obtained by the Washington Post.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…

Washington Storm

Let’s talk details. This is a long post, I know, but it’s important for everyone to understand just how bad the Democrats’ massive tax & spend package is going to be. Remember, this bill isn’t even finalized yet. I’ve linked to their initial version below. As of now, this is a 2,465-page monster that will expand cradle-to-grave government dependence, make inflation worse, and put our…

It's Just Horrible

Border Crisis Del Rio

It is HORRIBLE what President Biden has enabled to occur along our southern border. His policy decisions were deliberate and (I would argue) by design. He changed Trump's asylum policies, stopped new construction of the wall, and a host of other measures he deliberately took that encouraged, not discouraged, the near-record surge on our border. For without the surge... without the…

Solid Ruling by the Senate Parliamentarian

| Posted in Blog

MAJOR RULING just moments ago from the Senate Parliamentarian. The parliamentarian is the official advisor who interprets the Standing Rules of the Senate, and guides that body on the appropriate procedures for carrying out its work. (The House of Representatives also has a parliamentarian.) Just a little while ago, the Senate Parliamentarian ruled that Democrats could NOT include…

Secure the Border, President Biden!

| Posted in Blog

Every minute, of every hour, of every day last month, our Border Patrol encountered an average of 4.6 people along our southern border. 208,887 total encounters in August, according to data released just a couple hours ago. Massive numbers, once again. Think about that. It’s more than one encounter by our Border Patrol every 15 SECONDS. And it doesn’t even account for those who make it…

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…
