    One of the most important duties of Congress outlined in the U.S. Constitution is to provide for the common defense. It is a promise to American citizens that we will protect them and defend American interests across the globe. Each year, we keep that promise by passing the National Defense Authorization Act, which provides those who defend our Constitution with the tools they require to succeed. For the last 58 years, the NDAA has been a bipartisan bill where both sides have come together to pu... Read more

    When we hear that something is record-breaking, we usually think of something great happening, like a high school team breaking the school’s win record or catching the biggest fish at the lake. But some records are not intended to be broken and that is exactly what is happening with the crisis at our southern border. More people have been apprehended in the past seven months than during any full year in the last decade. In May, the largest group ever was taken in at the border, with 1,036 people... Read more

    Before President Trump took office, the U.S.’s southern border was only covered by man-made barriers along roughly a third of the border. These 654 miles of physical barriers are primarily located in California, Arizona, and New Mexico – leaving the vast majority of the Texas border wide open. Of the 654 miles of barriers, 300 miles are what is called vehicle fencing, low to the ground and meant for stopping cars, but completely ineffective when it comes to stopping people. The remaining 354 mi... Read more
