Since the last we spoke, I have introduced the strongest and most comprehensive border security bill in the 117th Congress.
The Protect America First Act will:
- Enact a 4-year moratorium on immigration and accelerate the time between apprehension and deportation.
- Ensure the safe return of unaccompanied alien children, reduces human trafficking, increases deportation for criminal aliens, and ends chain migration.
- Expedite removal of illegal aliens from 3 months to 30 days.
- Build the Wall and name it after President Donald J. Trump
- Cut off Funding for Sanctuary Cities
- Support Local Law Enforcement in their execution of immigration policy
- Empower ICE to detain and deport violent criminal aliens
- Revive President Trump’s Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy
- Rescind President Biden’s Open Borders Immigration Executive Orders
- Revoke Deferred Action on Child Aliens (DACA) and Deferred Action on Parental Accountability (DAPA)
- Remove funding for Central and South American Countries whose citizens violate this Act by migrating here illegal
America First Legislation that I have cosponsored:
- Steve Stivers’s (R-OH), Paws for Veterans Therapy Act, H.R. 1448, which directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to carry out a pilot program on dog training therapy, and to amend title 38, United States Code, to authorize the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to provide service dogs to veterans with mental illnesses who do not have mobility impairments.
- Kat Cammack’s (R-FL) Reins Act, H.R. 1776, which amends chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, to provide that major rules of the executive branch shall have no force or effect unless a joint resolution of approval is enacted into law.
- Dan Bishop’s (R-NC), Let States Cut Taxes Act, H.R. 2002, which amends the Social Security Act to remove the restriction on the use of funds under the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund to offset reductions in State or territory tax revenues.
While visiting the 14th District last week, I was able to tour Mannington Mills, in Calhoun, Georgia and I was able to see first hand what America First policies and business can do for America! The flooring industry employs more than 50,000 individuals in my district and around the state, with an estimated $8 billion in business activity every year.
I also visited the Field Turf Factory in Dalton, Georgia, stopped by to see the ladies at the Murray County Sheriff’s office, and held a town hall in Murray County.
My Congressional office in Washington D.C. is taking applications for interns this summer! We are excited to have interns in our office. Tasks will include answering phones, assisting with legislative research, compiling press clips, processing constituent mail, and attending policy briefings and other meetings. Experience with Microsoft Office and/or Adobe Suite is preferred. Georgia ties preferred but not required.
