“When it comes to protecting children, we must ensure our laws are airtight to prevent predators from facing no consequences for their cruel abuse and exploitation of kids.

“The Constitution is clear: it is the role of Congress to make all laws, the Judiciary to interpret the laws, and the President to enforce the laws. This system was wisely set in place by our country’s framers over 200 years ago because they knew first hand that the concentration of power in the same hands was a threat to individual liberty and the rule of law.”
At a time when our nation faces numerous security threats from the likes of ISIS, Iran, and North Korea, it is critical that the Department of Defense has the authority to carry out vital programs. Ironically, the President has vetoed this legislation even though just days ago he announced he would extend our military presence in Afghanistan. Our own Commander-in-Chief blocking the authorization for military funding is not the message we should be sending to those across the globe who wish to do our nation harm.
Chairman Goodlatte: “Every human life is sacred and should be protected from the atrocities allegedly undertaken by Planned Parenthood. The House Judiciary Committee is investigating these horrific acts including ascertaining how Congress might act. The prospects of altering an abortion procedure in order to preserve intact the organs of aborted children, including their brains, reminds us yet again of the horrors of late-term abortions, and the need for the Senate to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
The Mexican had been deported five times and was staying in San Francisco because its liberal leaders have made it a “sanctuary” city and won’t report illegals to the Immigration service for deportation. In addition, under Obama, illegals are unlikely to be deported even if they are caught.
“Today’s decision from the federal appeals court is another victory for the Constitution and the American people. President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration poses a clear and present danger to our Constitution and I am pleased that the President’s actions continue to be halted so that the states’ lawsuit can continue to move forward.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) on December 1st, sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Winkowski regarding the shocking allegations made in a lawsuit filed by Patricia Vroom, an attorney at ICE with an exemplary 26-year career, in the U.S. District Court of Arizona.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) sent a letter today to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on the issue of net neutrality. In the letter, Chairman Goodlatte challenges the notion that regulating the Internet is the most effective way to achieve net neutrality and protect consumers from discriminatory conduct.
Protecting the American people from threats against the nation is the highest priority of the federal government. However, in direct contrast to this goal, the Obama Administration recently approved a final regulation to lift a 30-year prohibition on Libyans coming to the U.S. to attend flight school, to work in aviation maintenance or flight operations, or to study or seek training in nuclear science. Once Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson signs this regulation, it will go into effect unless further action is taken.
“… there is clearly a conflict of interest between Justice Department investigators and this Administration. The Administration’s statements and actions have repeatedly served to undermine the Department’s investigation. The fact that President Obama pre-judged the investigation by saying there was ‘not a smidgen of corruption,’ and the fact that unnamed Department officials leaked information to the media designed to undermine the investigation, has made it impossible for the Department to conduct a fair, unbiased investigation. Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that there is no conflict, there clearly exist ‘other extraordinary circumstances’ called for in the regulations.”
