Washington, D.C. – “There are a lot of statistics Mark A. Morgan, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, uses to show how President Donald Trump’s policies have helped to cut illegal immigration into the United States”—but there are two that he thinks really make that accomplishment clear, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner.
“First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300. What’s more, he said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut.”
Washington, D.C. – “President Donald Trump starts off 2020 having presided over a lower average unemployment rate than any president at a comparable point in office in recorded history,” Philip Klein reports in the Washington Examiner.
“Since February 2017, Trump’s first full month in office, the monthly unemployment rate has averaged 3.9%. No prior president has averaged less than 4% over the first 35 months of his presidency. The closest was Dwight Eisenhower.”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. President Donald J. Trump addressed the nation this morning in the wake of Iran’s air attack against bases where American troops were stationed in Iraq.
“No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases,” the President said from the White House’s Grand Foyer.
President Trump: Iran will never have a nuclear weapon on my watch.
Washington, D.C. – “President Donald Trump’s order to take out Qasem Soleimani was morally, constitutionally and strategically correct.
It deserves more bipartisan support than the begrudging or negative reactions it has received thus far from my fellow Democrats,” former Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) writes in The Wall Street Journal.
Washington, D.C. – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced Vanderbilt’s Dr. Josh Denny will serve as the new chief executive officer for the All of Us Research Program, the centerpiece of the Precision Medicine Initiative:
“Dr. Josh Denny is an experienced team leader and has precisely the skills needed to finish the important job of collecting health information from 1 million people and using that information in a way that saves lives.”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Education Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) made the following statement on the fourth anniversary of the Every Student Succeeds Act becoming law:
“Four years ago, President Barack Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act, calling it a ‘Christmas Miracle.’ Today, states are taking advantage of what the Wall Street Journal called ‘the largest devolution of federal control to the states in a quarter-century.”
Washington, D.C. – “So the United States has ‘the world’s highest rate of children in detention.’ Is this worth reporting? Maybe, maybe not. Nevertheless, Agence France-Presse, or AFP, and Reuters did report it, attributing the information to a ‘United Nations study’ on migrant children detained at the US-Mexico border,” Kyle Smith writes for the New York Post.
“Then the two agencies retracted the story.” Why? “Sheepishly, the two news organizations explained that, you see, the UN data was from 2015.”
Senator Marsha Blackburn
Washington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) made the following statement regarding today’s vote on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s resolution to block President Donald Trump’s southern border emergency declaration:
“Since Congress gave emergency powers to the executive branch in 1976 under the National Emergencies Act, presidents from both political parties have declared national emergencies in the United States over situations far less dire than the security and humanitarian crisis that is currently plaguing the southern border.”
Bolton Says Green will be “A strong voice in Congress”
Franklin, TN – This week, Ambassador John Bolton endorsed Dr. Mark Green’s campaign for Congress. Bolton has served in senior positions in multiple administrations, including as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
“Dr. Mark Green has served on the front lines of the War on Terror as a flight surgeon, most notably on the mission to capture Saddam Hussein,” said Ambassador Bolton.
Congressman Marsha Blackburn
7th District of Tennessee
Washington, D.C. – As many of you know, last Friday at midnight, the government shut down. The Democrats in the Senate showed their constituents, and every American, that they chose to forgo funding for our military, our elderly, and our children in order to fulfill their political agenda.
And if you remember, this was an agenda that President Trump was very clear on. The President told the Democrats that if they wanted a DACA deal, then they had to come to the negotiation table. Once there was funding for the border wall, an end to chain migration, and an end of the visa lottery system, President Trump would allow a DACA deal.
