The House of Representatives is back in session this week following a two-week recess. Infrastructure is the big issue in Washington this week, and it's one that every American can relate to. Infrastructure is a crucial component of a healthy economy and should be something we can all rally behind. President Biden has repeatedly said that he wants infrastructure to pass with broad support.

Congress is preparing to reconvene for legislative activity after a two-week recess, and likely to begin work on yet another massive spending proposal that is being framed as an “infrastructure package” as early as next week. There’s just one catch: The plan has very little to do with roads or bridges. It would, however, plow $3.5 trillion in new spending into a host of Big Government giveaways: Everything from “free” college and earmarks for “racial justice” programs to a “100% carbon-free electricity standard” that’s bound to raise utility bills. It even includes a sweeping amnesty for 10 million illegal aliens.

The House of Representatives is not in session this week and most Members are back in their home states for the Independence Day district work period. Speaking of which, we hope that you had a festive and patriotic 4th of July and got together with friends and family to enjoy the fireworks. Independence Day is a time for all of us to reflect on the visionary contributions of our Founding Fathers and the many generations of Americans from different backgrounds who have made our great Nation what it is today.

The American people notched a major victory this week when a partisan election bill that would have poured public money into the campaign accounts of well-heeled politicians and effectively invalidated state voter ID laws was blocked in the U.S. Senate – at least for now. Had this bill passed, it may also have resulted in illegal aliens being automatically registered to vote.

We shared some troubling data with you recently about the sheer size and scope of fraud in government pandemic spending. Readers may recall some of the most ridiculous examples – con-artists buying Bentleys, Lamborghinis, Maseratis and swimming pools with your money, prison inmates cashing in from behind bars and even one brazen scammer who was so proud of defrauding American taxpayers that he made a rap video about it.

President Biden’s border crisis is getting worse with each passing day. More than 180,000 illegal aliens flooded into our country in May alone – the highest level we’ve seen in more than two decades. To put that number in perspective, it is more than twice the capacity of a sold-out Lambeau Field.

This week I returned from a trip to the Darien Gap in Panama, a lawless frontier area where South America and Central America meet – and where thousands of migrants from across the globe begin their treacherous journey to the United States in earnest. What I encountered during my visit confirmed what most Americans have known for a very long time: President Biden’s repeated and reckless promises of amnesty, refusal to enforce immigration laws and rollback of common-sense Trump-era border controls are fueling a tidal wave of illegal immigration from places as far away as Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

This week the House of Representatives reconvened for legislative activity. But before we get to that, we wanted to talk again about the worsening crisis on our southern border. With inflationary price increases and the return of 1970s-style lines at gas stations grabbing headlines, the situation on our border with Mexico may have been bumped off the front page, but it isn’t getting any better. We continue to see record crossing numbers and disturbing reports of serious criminals attempting to slip in amid the surge.

In just over 100 days, we have seen the results of one-party rule with no meaningful checks or balances. But those consequences really came into sharper focus this week.
