House Democrats Reject Representative Mark Green’s Common-Sense Border Security Measures

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green has offered two amendments to House Democrats’ amnesty bill that were rejected out of hand during markup. Green’s first amendment would have ensured that criminals, gang members, and other aliens who are convicted of 1 felony or 2 or more misdemeanors would not be allowed to stay in the United States.

Green’s second amendment would have preserved President Trump’s border wall and blocked the Joe Biden Administration from rolling back the progress President Donald Trump made in securing our southern border.

Federal Bureau of Investigation - FBIWashington, D.C. – Good morning, Chairman Durbin, Ranking Member Grassley, and members of the committee. I am honored to be here, representing the men and women of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Our people—nearly 37,000 of them—are the heart of the Bureau. I am proud of their service and their commitment to our mission. Every day, they tackle their jobs with perseverance, professionalism, and integrity—sometimes at the greatest of costs.

Just last month, two of our agents made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Special Agents Dan Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger left home to carry out the mission they signed up for—to keep the American people safe.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – While some politicians are trying to sweep wasteful spending under the rug, I’m calling out the left’s exorbitant wish list. Americans deserve real COVID-19 Coronavirus relief—not more funding for “climate justice” and Planned Parenthood.

As the budget reconciliation process moves over to the Senate, I remain resolved to work against wasteful spending and provide an aid package that benefits the American people.
