Today is Wear Blue Day, also known as Human Trafficking Awareness Day—a day to raise awareness and stand with the millions of victims and survivors of human trafficking around the world.

It is up to all of us to empower change and end the heinous crime of human trafficking.

This administration’s refusal to secure our border has not only sacrificed the sovereignty of our great nation but has put all American citizens in danger.

The House Homeland Security Committee will examine Secretary Mayorkas’ dereliction of duty and deliver accountability for the American people.

The humanitarian crisis at our southern border has put millions of lives in danger.

House Republicans remain committed to securing our border, restoring law and order, and paving the way for the U.S. immigration system to work as intended.

Border and law enforcement personnel are overwhelmed with high rates of human trafficking, fentanyl smuggling, and illegal activity.

In Eagle Pass, TX, Terrell County Sheriff's Office Sheriff Cleveland shared the catastrophic impact this administration’s open border has had on his community.

To the brave men and women throughout FL-15 who put their lives on the line day in and day out to protect our community and families—thank you. I will always stand with you.

01/09/2024

This administration’s reckless policies have allowed all of our communities to become border communities, putting all Americans at risk.

This week, House Homeland Security Committee begins the long-awaited process of restoring accountability and transparency for the American people.

‼️ When a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is issued, take action! Straight-line winds from severe thunderstorms can sometimes cause just as much damage as a tornado.

➡️ Make sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts & heed all warnings from local officials.

01/09/2024

🚨FL-15: Our area is expected to receive severe weather with strong winds & the possibility of tornadoes throughout the day.

Stay indoors, and seek shelter away from windows immediately if a tornado warning is issued. Be sure to stay up to date with weather alerts in your area.

This week, I experienced firsthand the absolute chaos happening at our Southern border. Illegal migrant crossings are at a record high, and drug smuggling and human trafficking are rampant.

My House Republicans colleagues and I remain steadfast in ending this lawlessness and securing our border.

In December, our Southern border saw over 300,000 migrant encounters—the most ever recorded. It has become clear that this administration’s refusal to enforce our laws is the cause of this border crisis.

The American people deserve answers, transparency, & accountability.

Illegal migrant encounters broke all previous records in December 2023, with Customs and Border Patrol authorities reporting over 302,000 incidents in the last month of the year.

Our Border Patrol agents should be working to safeguard our border and protect the American people, not acting as travel agents for migrants.

This administration has failed the brave men and women working on the front lines of this crisis. More:

The American people are feeling the negative effects of rising inflation and weak economic policies—especially in their pocketbooks.

It’s time to rein in Washington’s irresponsible spending and advance fiscal responsibility.

Despite what the experts say, most Americans across incomes and generations believe the U.S. economy is in a recession, according to a recent Bankrate survey.

Border Patrol agents are completely overwhelmed by the record-high numbers of migrants entering our country through the southern border.

We must equip our Border Patrol agents with the resources they need to secure our border and put an end to this crisis.

People are crossing into sparsely populated parts of Arizona and California, forcing officials to take them to makeshift holding areas and processing centers.

As threats from our foreign adversaries grow stronger, we must bolster our cybersecurity infrastructure.

The House Homeland Security Committee and I are working to counter threats to our national security, protect our nation’s critical infrastructure, and secure America’s cyber border.

The hackers are reportedly targeting critical U.S. infrastructure.
