    No matter how loudly Democrats deny it, the national security crisis on our southern border isn’t going away. In fact, it’s getting worse. Just recently, several dozen Central American migrants tried to rush an international port of entry near Laredo, Texas — a move that forced U.S. authorities to shut down an entire bridge tp vehicle traffic for several hours. The migrants occupied the vehicle lane and attempted to breach the border, apparently in hopes of claiming asylum, but were stopped by U... Read more

    Posted in In The News on March 12, 2019 | Preview rr

    There have been many accusations flying around about why 22 of my fellow Republicans and I voted against the Democrats’ convoluted “hate” resolution last week. What started solely as a rebuke of the latest round of anti-Jewish statements made by Rep. Illan Omar, D-Minn., morphed into something else entirely. We 23 who voted “No” could not justify eliminating condemnation of what led to the Holocaust down to a list of improprieties born of political appeasement within the Democratic Party. There...

    Posted in In The News on February 5, 2019 | Preview rr

    Prolific special-order speech-giver Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, on Tuesday welcomed a rule change introduced by House Democrats to limit his use of the procedural quirk. Gohmert has gained a reputation since about 2007 for taking advantage of open-ended House floor time offered to members after the conclusion of the chamber's official business. The opportunity provided the Texas Republican with the chance to deliver long, uninterrupted speeches, which were often carried live on C-SPAN. But und... Read more

    President Trump is taking a courageous and necessary stand by insisting on border security, and he needs to be able to count on Republicans in Congress to stand by him until Democrats end their obstruction. Two years ago, the American people sent a clear and resounding message to Washington: fix our broken immigration system, and fix it now. Demonstrating once again that he’s nothing like typical establishment politicians, President Trump has taken that responsibility seriously by putting his f... Read more

We have got to stand firm on that. We have got to protect America,” the Republican from Tyler told conservative radio host Sebastian Gorka before the new House session began. Congress has balked at paying billions of dollars to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. The fu... Read more
