  • Migrant Surge Shows Border Patrol Is 'Critically Understaffed,' Top Republican Says
    Posted in Columns on April 27, 2021 | Preview rr

    The Border Patrol is “critically understaffed” amid the border surge, sapping agents’ morale and punching gaps in the nation’s security, the top Republican on a subcommittee that oversees government operations said Monday. Rep. Jody Hice, the ranking member on the House Oversight subcommittee on government operations, said part of the blame for poor morale lies at the feet of the Biden administration itself, which has spent months disputing labels such as “crisis” at the border. In a letter to t... Read more

  • ICYMI: DC statehood vote – here's what Democrats' power play is really about
    Posted in Columns on April 22, 2021 | Preview rr

    We are witnessing a radical transformational push by the Left to bend and warp America’s institutions and government to their will. This week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., plans to ram the next phase of Democrats’ strategy through the House: granting statehood to the District of Columbia. This is a political power play, plain and simple. H.R. 51, the Washington, D.C., Admission Act, would admit the District of Columbia to the United States as the 51st state, to be called "Washington, Douglass... Read more

  • Congressman Jody Hice Remarks on H.R. 51
    Posted in Columns on April 22, 2021 | Preview rr

    “I thank the ranking member. I don’t even know where to begin to respond to what we just heard. To imply that Washington, D.C., has no representation is absolutely false. It does have local representation. Also has a delegate right here in the House of Representatives. And has electoral votes for the Presidential election. It seems like – something no other city in this country has. H.R. 51 flies in the face of what our founders intended. They never wanted the seat of our government to be a sta... Read more

  • Reps. Hice, Budd, and Roy: H.R. 1 is Pelosi, Schumer's Dangerous Ploy to Cancel Republicans at the Ballot Box

    Tags: Oversight & Government Reform

    We all know that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer want to cancel your voice in public debate, but now they also want to cancel your choice at the ballot box. Sitting atop Pelosi and Schumer’s "to-do" list for the 117th Congress is not getting your children back to school, helping the small business you’ve spent decades building reopen its doors, or getting vaccines in the arms of your grandparents. Rather, their top priority is HR1, the so-called "For the Peopl... Read more

  • ICYMI: The Federal Bureau of Inaction
    Posted in Columns on November 2, 2020 | Preview rr

    In the closing days of the most consequential presidential election of our lifetimes, the New York Post has dropped a bombshell into this race. Whether Democrats or the mainstream media want to admit it, serious concerns have been raised about Joe Biden and his family – and the evidence is now pouring out to the public. The question Americans should be asking is, “Why are we only now hearing about this?” Let’s take a step back first. We’ve all known for some time that Joe Biden’s troubled son, ... Read more

  • Be Counted So Our Community Counts
    Posted in Columns on September 18, 2020 | Preview rr

    Your community needs your help! We promise it won’t take long. The 2020 Census is ongoing right now. Unfortunately, the response rate in Georgia is among the lowest in the country due to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year has thrown a major curveball for all of us – but an undercount of our population in the Census could hurt our state for the next decade. Our communities need a complete and accurate count of how many people reside in our great state. The Census count determines ... Read more

  • Say 'No' to Statehood for Washington, D.C.

    Say 'No' to Statehood for Washington, D.C. June 6, 2020 The headlines have been filled with toppled, vandalized, and targeted statues over the past few weeks, including those of founding presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. But these aren’t the only efforts to tear down physical representations of our history. This week, the Party of Jefferson — or rather what it has turned into — is targeting another tangible legacy of the Founders’ vision: the federal district of Washington, D.C... Read more

  • REP. JODY HICE: End Racism – Not The Police
    Posted in Columns on June 14, 2020 | Preview rr

    In the days since George Floyd’s tragic and horrifying death, America has been rocked by an unprecedented rush of anger, frustration, anxiety and fear. Even in the midst of this turmoil, we can look in the mirror and confidently remind ourselves that the United States of America remains the greatest nation in the world. But, like all great societies, we have dark sins swept under the rug. The ultimate evil of those sins is racism and, even as past generations made painfully slow but nonetheless... Read more

  • Rep. Jody Hice: Confront old sins, return to God, and reject racism
    Posted in Columns on June 4, 2020 | Preview rr

    Frederick Douglass in 1847 defined a true patriot as a “lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins.” To love America genuinely, we cannot sweep our problems under the rug. We must acknowledge our national sins and actively work to right these wrongs. Nearly 200 years later, Douglass’s wisdom rings true. The tragic death of George Floyd has brought our nation’s sins to the forefront. My heart broke watching the appalling video of Floyd’s slow and agonizing last moments as he st... Read more

  • Someone Must Be Held Accountable

    Someone Must Be Held Accountable Every crisis has a self-reflection point. Six weeks into the coronavirus pandemic, we now have data and information available. We have seen the face of the enemy. Tragically, lives have been lost to the virus, but many victims have survived, and even more Americans have remained healthy through it all. It is time to begin examining what we have done and whether, with the benefit of hindsight, we were right to do it. As I reflect, I come to an inescapable conclus... Read more

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
