In short speech today Rep. Jim Bridenstine called President Barack Obama to account saying “the President wants taxpayers to shell out $3.7 billion to deal with a problem he created. His proposal does not solve the problem.
“Without a secure border, this is just the beginning. Members of both parties must demand that the President finally secure the border and faithfully execute the law. This is a matter of national security and national sovereignty,” Bridenstine added.

Rockets were fired at the Jerusalem area on Thursday evening with two of the projectiles being shot down by the Iron Dome. Two other rockets fell in open areas.
No injuries or damage were initially reported in the attacks.

Sen. Tom Coburn told an Obama administration official Wednesday that it was illegal to bar U.S. Rep. James Bridenstine from the Fort Sill facility housing some of the unaccompanied minors who recently crossed the southern border into the United States.
“I will just tell you I think you made a grievous error in denying Congressman Bridenstine access to that facility,” Coburn, R-Muskogee, told Mark Greenberg, an acting assistant secretary with the Department of Health and Human Services, at a Senate hearing.
America has provided foreign aid, comfort, safe harbor and a promising future to millions of Mexican citizens over generations. Today on the border American Citizens are funding efforts to care for children, stop drug cartels based in Mexico and generally provide for those that wish to leave Mexico and other countries in South America. In return, the Mexican Government apparently feels free to evilly abuse American Citizens.
It may be time to stop doing any business with Mexico – no foreign aid – no tourism – end it all. If they do not respect our citizens then they are not worthy to receive our business or our tax money. This change in attitude is suggested if not demanded by the treatment of Andrew Tahmooressi, an active duty decorated veteran who continues to be held on unjust fabricated charges by the Mexican judicial system.
