Creating a Nation that is Safe and Secure: The crisis at our southern border is one of the most serious challenges our nation has ever faced, and the Biden Administration’s response has been catastrophic. It is ludicrous for the Biden Administration to argue that illegal aliens will show up to the court dates a decade from now.
This is not a reasonable solution to the growing threat at our border. We need to provide the resources needed to secure the border and process these migrants seeking asylum, which is exactly what HR 2 does. HR 2 passed the House earlier this month. I urge my Senate colleagues to expedite its passage. Additionally, the border crisis continues to cost American taxpayers. Please be assured that we will continue to investigate lawlessness, corruption and mismanagement that has worsened the problem.
Another important priority as we work to create a nation that is safe is combatting the liberal policies that have caused crime rates to soar throughout the nation. According to the Major Chief’s Association’s 2022 crime report, homicides were UP 13%, rape was up 23.56%, and Aggravated Assaults were up 33.89% since 2020. We can’t continue allowing soft on crime policies – Americans deserve a nation that is secure!
Addressing Security Issues Impacting Food and Pharmaceutical Supply Chains: Drug shortages were up 30% from 2021 to 2022, posing risks to both our public health and national security. My colleagues and I are working to tackle this growing problem and make our supply chain less dependent on China and other foreign adversaries. Our Manufacturing API, Drugs, and Excipients (MADE) in America Act will work to mitigate drug shortages and medical supply chain crunches while incentivizing the domestic manufacturing of drugs, API, PPE, and diagnostics. Additionally, recently discovered emails prove that the Biden Administration is allowing foreign-funded political groups to have direct input into the policies that govern our nation’s food supply. Our nation’s food supply must be secure and not subject to outside influence.
Feeling the Impact of Inflation and Liberal Policies: Bidenflation continues to take a significant toll on all Americans. However, Floridians have been hit particularly hard. As a result of failed economic policies and record inflation, Floridians now spend almost $1,000 more per month.
