Today is #WorldTeenMentalWellnessDay  and with everything our students have gone through the last year, Congress needs to do its part to get them back in the classroom.

Children should never be separated from their families b/c they are being used as pawns to break our laws. This reunification policy doesn't address the problem of children being trafficked, but it encourages it to keep happening.

Fact - illegal border crossings are up over 40k compared to this time last year. We need to be encouraging immigrants to follow our laws not providing them ways to break them.

Physician-owned hospitals play a key role in providing quality, efficient, & cost-effective health care. @RepGonzalez  & I intro'ed the Patient Access to Higher Quality Health Care Act of 2021 to restore doctors’ freedom to innovate & serve their patients.

#Tune in tomorrow morning at 5:15am ET to @FoxFriendsFirst  ... I will be joining the show to discuss the immigration crisis we are facing.

Last week, I offered two amendments to @housebudgetGOP  that would ensure EVERYONE crossing our borders was tested for #COVID19  ... the reports that over 100 migrants have been released with the virus is upsetting and shouldn't have happened.

For lasting police reform we MUST permanently remove bad actors from serving on any force, provide the resources law enforcement needs to be adequately prepared to serve our communities, & attract & retain the highest caliber recruits. #JusticeInPolicingAct  doesn't do that.

Instead of putting forward lasting reform that would strengthen our election system and renew Americans' faith in their vote, Dems just passed a bill that will do more to secure their jobs than to secure the vote. My full statement here:

America stands for freedom. America must #StandWith HongKong The Chinese Communist Party is showing that it will stop at nothing to back out of its 1997 commitment to honor Hong Kong's laws and freedoms.

I asked for a public hearing on #COVID19  in February. The same Democrats who now want to blame @realDonaldTrump  for this crisis dismissed my request.

Insulin and epipens are not new. They have been saving lives for decades. Disappointed in the Biden Administration for delaying savings for the families and patients dependent on these drugs.

One way or another Canada will still be shipping oil to the US, but coming via the Keystone XL Pipeline would result in at least 28% lower CO2 emissions.

RT if you are thankful for doctors, nurses, and all public health workers who have tirelessly cared for the sick through times of uncertainty.

Roughly 4 million American jobs can be attributed to the oil industry. Transitioning that industry out is not just bad policy but bad for the economy.

Speaker Pelosi simply can't accept the results of the 2016 election. Instead of providing relief for Americans suffering from this pandemic, she is now focused on putting together a commission to invoke the 25th Amendment. RT if you agree that her priorities are misplaced.
