Marsha Blackburn: Thanks to Biden, Tennessee is Now a Border State

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s easy to put stories of the crisis facing our nation at a distance when you live and work more than a thousand miles north of the United States-Mexico border. But as the effects of mass illegal immigration spread northward, Tennesseans are facing a stark new reality: when our border isn’t secure, every town becomes a border town and every state a border state.

Perhaps no one understands that better than Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch, who describes the crisis as “out of control.”

Marsha Blackburn Report: Calling Out Biden’s Anti-Family Agenda

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – President Joe Biden and D.C. politicians want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars to incentivize dependency on the federal government. To accomplish this, they will take even more money out of Tennesseans’ hard-earned paychecks.

The so-called ‘American Families Plan’ that Joe Biden’s team created for him will replace community with collectivism. Each program is just one more avenue for the government to gain a foothold into our homes. I will not stand by while Joe Biden and Kamala Harris attempt to gain control over Tennessee families.

NASA to start New Demonstration Phase with Ingenuity Helicopter

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter has a new mission. Having proven that powered, controlled flight is possible on the Red Planet, the Ingenuity experiment will soon embark on a new operations demonstration phase, exploring how aerial scouting and other functions could benefit future exploration of Mars and other worlds.

This new phase will begin after the helicopter completes its next two flights. The decision to add an operations demonstration is a result of the Perseverance rover being ahead of schedule with the thorough checkout of all vehicle systems since its February 18th landing, and its science team choosing a nearby patch of crater bed for its first detailed explorations.

NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover took a selfie with the Ingenuity helicopter, seen here about 13 feet (3.9 meters) from the rover. This image was taken by the WASTON camera on the rover’s robotic arm on April 6th, 2021, the 46th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
