Over the last two weeks, I’ve received questions from some of you asking why I voted against bills to “open” the federal government. As always, thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns. I’d like to address those concerns today, and also share some of mine with you. One of my biggest concerns throughout this shutdown is why House Democrats continue making us take pointless votes that make it appear as if the House is trying to reopen our federal government –  when really, these bills will do nothing to get us out of our current situation.

Questions to consider on Immigration Reform

As the House and Senate debate how best to fix our broken immigration system, I think it is important to consider the following questions:

1)      Should we legalize some, all, or none of the illegal immigrant population?  What sort of legal status should we confer?  How can we be both humane and respectful of the rule of law?

2)      What will be the impact of legalization on the federal budget?

3)      What will be the impact of legalization on American employers and workers?

Recently, the House passed H.R. 10, the Financial CHOICE Act of 2017, legislation to amend the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – the most sweeping financial regulation of our time – to deliver meaningful relief to financial institutions and consumers across the nation.

To begin with, I’m incredibly pleased to see the House Financial Services Committee exercise regular order to advance the CHOICE ACT, a bill that underwent several Committee hearings and an extensive three-day markup process before it was brought to the House Floor for a vote.
