Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, House Democrats voted to pass legislation to make D.C. a state. There is just one problem - it is unconstitutional.
Democrats Latest Power Grab
For the last 60 years, every Justice Department has said a constitutional amendment would be needed in order to make D.C. state. H.R. 51 does not include a constitutional amendment for the 23rd Amendment - making this piece of legislation nothing more than a power grab by far-left Democrats to enact socialist policies.
Here's a good breakdown from my colleague, Rep. James Comer, Ranking Member of the House Oversight & Reform Committee: Democrats' Two Reasons for D.C. Statehood: Power & Money
The Biden Border Crisis
The Biden Border Crisis has moved beyond our borders. I was very troubled when I heard of reports of a migrant facility being closed in the Houston area because of unbearable conditions.
Stories of overcrowded facilities are a direct result of the Biden Admin's decision to rescind Trump policies.
The White House must to address the root causes of illegal immigration – a good place to start would be reimplementing the Remain in Mexico policy and the asylum agreements.
Last month, I sat down with ABC's Martha Raddatz and predicted that this crisis would get much worse. Since that time, we have seen a drastic increase in border encounters. In fact, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported over 100,000 apprehensions during the month of February.
CBP has not seen numbers like that for that month in15 years.
