President Biden’s policies have created a national security and humanitarian crisis at our southern border. Democrat politicians have turned a blind eye as the crisis impacts communities all across the country. America’s national security should not be used as a political pawn to further an out-of-touch agenda. With record amounts of fentanyl pouring into our country at rates never seen before, we need to secure the border.

I am proud to have cosponsored H.R. 6184, the Halt Fentanyl Act, legislation that would change the scheduling of fentanyl, allowing researchers to study the dangerous public health crisis caused by this deadly drug in our communities.

I have also cosponsored H.R. 5854, the Illegal Immigrant Payoff Prohibition Act, legislation that prohibits payments of compromise settlements arising out of certain violations of the immigration laws.

I cosponsored H.R. 1496, Sarah’s Law, a bill that would require an illegal alien present in the US charged with a crime resulting in the death or serious injury of another person to be immediately detained.

I also co-authored a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas requesting information on how DHS plans to secure the border in light of lifting Title 42 expulsion authority.

I am also proud to have co-sponsored H.R. 6122, the Protect American Taxpayer Dollars from Illegal Immigration Act, which would prevent the federal government from paying settlements to migrant families detained at the border.
