Heidi and I are lifting up in prayer the entire Uvalde community during this devastating time and we mourn the lives that were taken by this act of evil. None of us can imagine the anguish the parents in Uvalde are going through. Our hearts go out to them. 3/x

Today is a dark day. We’re all completely sickened and heartbroken. As of now, 15 innocent people are dead. 14 were children. Others are still in critical condition or otherwise injured, and we are all praying for each of them. 1/x

I’m grateful for the heroes in law enforcement and first responders who responded to the scene and stopped the killer. 2/x

We have seen the face of evil. The Senate needs to act by passing legislation to harden schools so this doesn’t happen again.

We need to target criminals, not law abiding citizens.

Uvalde is strong. Texas is strong. Our country stands alongside the men and women who are grieving. We will get through this. And we will come through this, together.

All of us in Texas need to come together to comfort the grieving mothers and fathers. We need to love, embrace, and take care of them.

The elites in society have the loudest megaphone when it comes to gun control. They live in gated neighborhoods and have private security.

Those furthest from the halls of power rely on the Second Amendment.


RELEASE: My statement in advance of the Electoral College certification process on January 6, 2021.

Today my colleagues and I reintroduced a constitutional amendment to impose #TermLimits  on Members of Congress. The amendment would limit U.S. senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to three two-year terms.

TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: This is the beginning of the end of the abuse of the Constitution. The Senate will provide a fair trial for @realDonaldTrump . #impeachment  #ArticlesOfImpeachment  #ImpeachmentTrial  #senate  #SenateImpeachmentTrial 

The accelerating breakdown of Mexican institutions and the rule of law under López Obrador is a threat to US national security. Today, I pressed the Administration on the need to do more to stop and reverse this deadly trend.

It’s long past time for congressional #TermLimits .    RT if you agree!
