A Win for the American People
Dear Friends,

Last week was truly a triumphant week for our country, and it began on Tuesday evening with an optimistic vision laid out by President Donald Trump at the State of the Union. Without a doubt, America is experiencing a revitalized economy and a renewed sense of patriotism as the President continues to deliver on his promises by putting America first.

Simply put, the results of the Trump Administration’s policies speak for themselves: the lowest unemployment in 50 years, the highest middle-class income in our Nation’s history, seven million jobs created, and an astounding 10 million people lifted off of welfare. Additionally, the President has successfully negotiated historic trade deals with South Korea, Japan, Mexico, Canada, and China.

Unfortunately, as you may have seen, Speaker Nancy Pelosi had the audacity to tear up the President’s speech – and with it, his accomplishments for the American people, as well as the incredible personal stories of his guests – on live television. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was downright disrespectful and petty. That’s why I am supporting both a resolution by Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX) to condemn Speaker Pelosi’s disgraceful conduct and a resolution by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) to censure Speaker Pelosi.

For more than 134 days, Democrats threw every allegation imagined at the President. At the end of this sham, the Senate voted to acquit President Trump of both Articles of Impeachment. While I believe it’s long past time to get back to doing the work of the American people, now the question remains: Will Democrats continue to pursue their senseless political vendetta against President Trump, or will they finally turn their attention to governing?

National Prayer Breakfast

On Thursday evening, my wife, Dee Dee, and I were humbled to attend the 68th Annual National Prayer Breakfast with our friends and colleagues. It is a fantastic tradition that brings together thousands of political and religious leaders alike to celebrate faith and its formative role in our country. The breakfast serves as an opportunity to discuss God’s gifts and grace with people of faith from around the world. As John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  It is important that we bring back faith to Washington especially at such a divisive time in our country’s history.

Telephone Townhall

Thursday evening, I hosted another Telephone Townhall. It is always a pleasure to hear from folks back home in the district. We discussed important topics like, Medicare, the Israel Peace Deal, and of course the President’s State of the Union and acquittal.

During the forum, I asked two poll questions, and I encourage you to check out the results below. Again, thank you for taking an interest in what our government is doing, and thank you for participating in these important discussions. If you’d like to sign up to participate in future town hall meetings, please let us know by completing the form here.


Folks in the Office 

One of my favorite things about working on Capitol Hill is the opportunity to meet with incredible individuals and hear their stories. This week, I met two members of the Merrill Marauders. During World War II, three thousand volunteered for classified assignment, not knowing any details. It was their heroism and sacrifice in South Asia that resulted in the United States seizing control of the Burmese capital of Myitkyina.

As we look back seventy-six years later, I want to thank these men for their service and valor to protect America and its freedom.

Mobile Office Hours

Team Hice is coming your way! If you’re experiencing difficulties dealing with a federal agency and need help, I encourage you to stop by one of my Mobile Office Hours this month. During these events, you have the opportunity to talk directly with a member of my staff about issues related to Social Security, the Veterans Administration, passport issues, or any other federal matter. Again, while we can’t guarantee the outcome of your case, we will do our utmost on your behalf.


The Week Ahead

This week, the House will consider the following pieces of legislation:

H.R. 1494- Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Homeland Security Partnerships Act, as amended

S. 2107- Protecting America’s Food and Agriculture Act of 2019

H.R. 5273- Securing America’s Ports Act

H.R. 3413- DHS Acquisition Reform Act of 2019

H.R. 504- DHS Field Engagement Accountability Act, as amended

H.R. 2932- Homeland Security for Children Act, as amended

H.R. 4737- Department of Homeland Security Climate Change Research Act, as amended

H.R. 4432- Protecting Critical Infrastructure Against Drones and Emerging Threats Act

H.R. 4753- Drone Origin Security Enhancement Act
