State of the Union


On Tuesday night, President Biden delivered the State of the Union address. However, instead of giving us an accurate description of the state of our union, he used the speech to gaslight the American people, slander Republicans and propose new programs that would further insert the government into Americans’ everyday lives. More importantly, President Biden made one thing very clear, he is out of touch with the American people. Things are not better than they were two years ago. Just go to the grocery store or the gas pump and you’ll see the truth.

I was disappointed to see that instead of solutions, the President continued to tout his terrible policies, but I remain hopeful because House Republicans will continue our work to stop his out of touch agenda.

Oversight Hearings


This week, the GOP-led House Oversight Committee held two hearings that upheld our Commitment to America by holding the government and Big Tech accountable.

On Tuesday, I had the opportunity to ask U.S. Customs and Border Patrol about the crisis at our southern border. During my questioning, I learned that Border Patrol agents apprehended 98 suspected terrorists in the last year alone. This is a substantial increase from previous years. The world knows President Biden has left our southern border wide open, and bad actors are trying to exploit it. Also, to no surprise, the Border Patrol officials confirmed my suspicion that Biden’s catch-and-release policies are directly incentivizing people to cross our southern border unlawfully. It is clear that this Administration’s policies have opened the door for dangerous individuals and substances like fentanyl to cross into our nation undetected. Every day that goes by, our national security is more and more at risk.

On Wednesday, we held a hearing with ex-Twitter officials on their censorship policies that have banned many conservatives’ Twitter accounts. Big tech must be held accountable for censoring free speech in order to promote their own liberal agenda. I questioned them on their policies for flagging content as misinformation and disinformation and learned that the policy was not applied equally. It is past time that Big Tech is held accountable. Rest assured, House Republicans will continue asking the questions you all deserve answers to.

Photos of the Week


Yesterday, I met with Colombia's new Ambassador, Luis Gilberto Murillo. We had a productive discussion about the current state of affairs in Colombia and the bilateral relations between our two countries. 


This week, Enes Freedom, Majority Leader Scalise, and I sat down to discuss the NBA's silencing of opposition to the Chinese Communist Party and their human rights violations. 


On Tuesday, I met with Major General Rogers of the Michigan National Guard. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I know how vital it is to sit down with our National Guard to talk about their priorities for the upcoming year. 

Thank you all for your participation in the democratic process, enjoy your Superbowl weekend. I know I will be enjoying the commercials!
