Judiciary

It's an honor to serve on the House Judiciary Committee in Congress, where we draft and debate legislation related to the administration of justice in federal courts, administrative bodies, and law enforcement agencies. Through this position, I am able to take an active role in reforming our immigration system, protecting our Second Amendment, holding Big Tech accountable, and promoting integrity within the federal government.

Last week, two Republican congressmen from the Sunshine State–U.S. Reps. Bill Posey and Greg Steube–threw their support behind a proposal which “protects qualified immunity for police officers serving at the state and local levels across the country.”

The two Florida Republicans backed U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney’s, R-NY, “Local Law Enforcement Protection Act.” Tenney’s office stressed why the bill was needed when she brought it out last week.

“Political motivations should not be taken into consideration when determining conditions of custody, especially for non-violent individuals who have not been convicted of a crime. Yet reports have surfaced that many of the suspects arrested in connection with the January 6 protests are being held in solitary confinement or in other extreme conditions without a satisfactory explanation.”
June 23, 2021 Press Release
“President Biden’s plan completely misses the mark. The only reason why we see violent crime spikes is because the Democrats spent the last year defunding and demonizing the police. This emboldens criminals and allows liberal prosecutors and activist judges to selectively enforce the rule of law. Instead of blaming law-abiding gun owners for the rise in violence, Democrats need to look in the mirror and take responsibility for the crime crisis threatening our citizens.”

“This crisis has gone unchecked and completely ignored by this Administration. On the front lines, CBP is overwhelmed, illegal migrant apprehensions are up over 900% from last year, and cartel trafficking of humans and drugs are surging across our border. With the Biden Administration frozen into silence and inactivity by left-leaning radicals in their own party, states like Texas and Arizona are now even being forced to rely on Florida to send local law enforcement to help them protect our country’s borders.”
June 8, 2021 Press Release
“While the Biden Administration recklessly opens up our southern border and overwhelms CBP, Congress must work towards common sense immigration reforms that will end irresponsible policies, like chain migration. Not only will this legislation create a level playing field for legal immigrants applying for citizenship, but it will also help the federal government control the number of people we have entering our country each year.”

"Despite the horrific nature of these crimes, we continue to hear calls to not fully prosecute the criminals that are responsible for these crimes."
April 21, 2021 Press Release
“The Biden Administration has driven illegal crossings up to historic highs by encouraging more illegal immigration and loosening restrictions to give criminals a free pass. These policy reversals – and now this legislation – will be directly responsible for what will go down in history as our biggest failure of border security in our lifetime."
March 18, 2021 Press Release
“There is a crisis at our border and this dangerous legislation only serves to incentivize more illegal crossings by granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. With Border Patrol encountering an average of 565 unaccompanied children a day, and some migrant facilities operating at over 729% capacity, we cannot afford misguided policies that fan the flames of the blazing disaster at the southern border.”
March 11, 2021 Press Release
“Cities across the country have seen historic crime spikes, and Democrats have spent the last two weeks attacking law enforcement, giving stimulus checks to felons, and now taking away Second Amendment rights from law-abiding gun owners. These proposals would not have prevented a single mass shooting we have seen – they are simply unconstitutional power grabs that only serve to infringe on our rights and make our communities less safe.”
