President Donald Trump’s wall is going up, illegal immigration is down

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Americans spent years telling Washington to fix our country’s broken immigration system. But career politicians ignored the will of voters and pushed “solutions” that left special interests happy and most citizens frustrated.

Donald J. Trump won the Presidency promising to end that stalemate. Now, despite shocking levels of resistance from Democrats in Congress, the rule of law is being restored at our nation’s doorstep. Mile by mile, President Trump is keeping his promise.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and John Kennedy (R-La.), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) led 207 Members of Congress in filing an amicus brief to stand up for Louisiana’s pro-life law before the U.S. Supreme Court that would require all abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals when emergencies arise.

“States reserve the right to protect mothers and their children with high standards for health care providers—and abortionists remain subject to such high standards. I hope the Supreme Court will issue a ruling that safeguards women’s health and that is consistent with the Constitution’s guarantee for states’ rights,” Senator Blackburn stated.

Lamar Alexander says Beyond the Headlines, Congress is Reaching Results for Tennesseans

 

U.S. SenateMaryville TN – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said members of Congress have worked together to get results for Americans and for Tennesseans.

“Congress passed legislation in December that provides permanent funding – that is fully paid for – for HBCUs and other minority serving institutions attended by over 2 million minority students,” Senator Alexander said.

Marsha Blackburn Report: A Sham Process

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Here’s the scoop on impeachment. For the past three years, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is currently the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has grasped aimlessly at every unsubstantiated claim, desperate to find an impeachable offense.

There is a reason the only bipartisan vote in the House was against impeachment. President Donald Trump has not abused his power. If the House sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate and the trial begins, Tennesseans can count on me to stand with President Trump.
