Democrats want to grow the scope and size of government, taking control of your healthcare, your firearms, and even your pocketbook. The unyielding dedication to the protection and advancement of the liberties… Read more

    Engaging with everyday Americans both in my congressional district in Georgia and across the Nation – from law enforcement to grieving “Angel Parents” of those murdered by illegal immigrants – has shown me beyond a shadow of a doubt that we must act now to address the crisis at the southern border.

    Washington, D.C. – Every day, I hear from veterans throughout the 10th District.

    WASHINGTON — America’s southern border is at a breaking point. I recently joined my colleagues, Congressmen Michael Cloud of Texas and Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin, in traveling to the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo sectors of the Lone Star State in order to get an up-close and personal view of this crisis.

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.
