Joe Biden recently presided over a historic achievement, but unfortunately not an achievement worth celebrating. According to the Washington Post, more illegal immigrants were arrested along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2021 than ever before recorded. More than 1.7 million migrants were encountered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The numbers are astounding but not surprising. When ...

Some things have to be seen to be believed. I found that to be the case during my recent visit to the southern border with other Members of Congress to investigate the disastrous results of President Biden’s policies. On his first day in office, President Biden ordered an immediate pause to construction of the border wall. As I saw on the border, this order has led to some absurd outcomes. Constru...

Abraham Lincoln was fond of a question that asked: if you call a sheep’s tail a leg, how many legs does it have? If someone answered five, Lincoln said, he would be wrong; calling a tail a leg does not make it so. President Biden has chosen not to heed this lesson. The situation on America’s southern border is a crisis, even when his Administration has refused to acknowledge it. Border security wa...

The writer G.K. Chesterton once offered a famous parable to illustrate the difference between sensible reform and thoughtless action.

Rural areas like ours face unique challenges in health care. Providers struggle to stay open and to attract new doctors, nurses, and other personnel. I am looking forward to being in Lee County on October 8 for the ribbon-cutting of an urgent care center. This facility is the first step toward opening a new Lee County hospital next year. This is an important step forward since Lee County’s old hos...

The Wrong Approach to Immigration Reform One of America’s defining virtues is that its promise is open to people of all races and creeds. Our foundational principles apply to men and women no matter their land of origin. Yet this openness to all also places obligations on those who want to become Americans. Because we aspire to treat everyone equally according to the law, we expect newcomers to re...
