Joe Biden’s southern border crisis just keeps getting worse.

It's past time we secure our southern border.

In the face of the terrible Amtrak accident this weekend in Joplin, I’m glad to see Montanans come together to support the passengers and offer help when needed. As the investigation continues, I’ll continue to monitor the situation and keep those impacted in my thoughts.

If you have questions about friends or family who were aboard the train that derailed in Joplin, call Amtrak’s hotline: 800-523-9101

I’m disgusted, but sadly not surprised, to see House Dems’ complete disregard for human life today.

Their bill isn’t about protecting women’s health—it’s about making abortion on demand the law of the land.

We must stand up for all life, no matter how small.

Our border patrol agents work day in and day out to protect our country, families and communities from illegal drugs and illegal immigrants.

God bless them for their service.🇺🇸

Small businesses make up 99% of Montana businesses & they make our hometowns feel like home.

I'm thankful for the hard work of Montana small business owners and workers and will always support our mom & pop shops.

Glad to see the U.S. Senate pass my bipartisan resolution to recognize September 13 - September 17th as National Small Business Week.

MHP dealing with increased drug trafficking

Montana is a northern border state with a southern border crisis.

We MUST secure our southern border and fix the disaster caused by Joe Biden

The Montana Highway Patrol is experiencing an increase in drug trafficking that they say is coming from Mexico. The number of arrests for possession of fentanyl has quadrupled from last year, from one arrest in 2020 to nine arrests in 2021 from only the first two quarters of this year, according to....

In yet another pursuit of their radical agenda, House Dems voted to cut critical funding for Israel's Iron Dome—a defense system that protects innocent lives from terrorist attacks.

This is morally indefensible.

Hindering Israel's ability to defend itself and protect innocent lives emboldens Iran—the world's leading sponsor of terrorism.

We must stand with Israel, not against them. 🇺🇸🇮🇱

Joe Biden promised "relentless diplomacy" but what the American people are really getting is relentless weakness from their Commander in Chief.

Happy 100th, Betty! Hope you've had the chance to visit some of Montana's national parks. If not, let's make it happen!

Officials: Many migrants from border camp staying in US

Under Joe Biden, we have an open southern border and it’s overflowing with illegal drugs and illegal immigrants, many unvaccinated and COVID+. This is not acceptable. We need to secure our southern border and protect our communities.

DEL RIO, Texas (AP) — Many Haitian migrants camped in a small Texas border town are being released in the United States, two U.S.

Thank you Governor Greg Gianforte, and thank you to the
Montana National Guard for helping support Montana hospitals, healthcare heroes and communities.

Domestic critical mineral production is vital to Montana. It supports good-paying jobs, generates tax revenue and boosts local economies.

Hear from leaders in Sweet Grass County, Montana on the benefits critical mineral mining has on their community.

09/21/2021

Critical minerals are used in everything from defense to technology & when domestic production is shut down, it threatens our security, kills jobs & makes us dependent on China.

Today in Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, I questioned a Joe Biden nominee about her plans to support critical minerals.

DHS asks Pentagon to help move migrants from Del Rio, Texas

Joe Biden's border crisis is out of control. Department of Homeland Security is completely overwhelmed because of the lack of leadership & action by the President.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has asked the Pentagon to help move migrants awaiting asylum processing in Del Rio, Texas, to other facilities, the Department of Defense's (DOD) top spokesman said Monday.

Daines demands answers over reports child traffickers among Afghan evacuees

While I support welcoming Afghan evacuees who helped U.S. troops in Afghanistan for the past 20 years, there absolutely must be a robust vetting process. We need answers from
Joe Biden on this process, including who's coming into our country and why.

Sen. Steve Daines is demanding answers about the Biden administration’s Afghan evacuation program over concerns it has been subverted by child traffickers.

09/20/2021

It’s inexplicable that Joe Biden once again extended the northern border closure for MT families, businesses & our economy while the southern border is wide open to illegal drugs & illegal immigrants, many of whom are unvaccinated & maybe COVID+.

The hypocrisy is unbelievable.

Since Joe Biden continues to put illegal immigrants above Montanans and our northern border communities, Congress needs to pass my bill with Rep. Elise Stefanik to reopen the northern border NOW.

09/19/2021

Joe Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan has weakened America and emboldened our enemies.

The situation at our southern border is beyond terrible. Our communities are flooded with illegal drugs & illegal immigrants and our U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents are overwhelmed.

Something must be done to fix Joe Biden’s border crisis.

Being briefed by CBP on the escalating #BidenBorderCrisis while yards away from over 10,000 illegal aliens.

This is a manmade disaster. And it is a direct result of Joe Biden’s political decisions.

Montana is open for business! Thank you, Governor Greg Gianforte for leading the Montana comeback.

The United States Constitution was signed on this day in 1787. Our framers designed it to guide generations to come toward a more perfect union. Today it’s a symbol of liberty & democracy around the world. 234 years later the United States remains the greatest nation in the world. #ConstitutionDay

Sens. Daines, Warren introduce bill to award 13 slain service members with Congressional Gold Medals

13 brave men & women made the ultimate sacrifice to protect Americans & our allies at a critical moment in our nation’s history—they are heroes.

It's fitting for Congress to express its gratitude in this moment with the Congressional Gold Medal.

On Wednesday, Senators Steve Daines, R-Mont., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., introduced the bipartisan bill to give the 13 fallen service members killed during the deadly troop withdrawal from Afghanistan the Congressional Gold Medal.

#Bidenflation has led to record high price increases for American families on everything from gas to groceries.

Joe Biden and the Democrats’ reckless tax & spending spree is a tax on all families and it's drastically shrinking your paycheck.
