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.

We wanted to start off this week by reminding everyone that Mother’s Day is right around the corner. So if you haven’t already – make sure you get out there and pick up something nice for Mom.

This week lawmakers did not convene for legislative activity, but President Biden addressed a sparsely attended joint session of Congress to report on the first 100 days of his administration, and his plans for the future.

Last week we told you about the House majority’s effort to pack the Supreme Court. This week, they are looking to “pack” the U.S. Senate – by unconstitutionally adding the District of Columbia as the nation’s 51st State. Like the “court packing” proposal we told you about last week, Speaker Pelosi’s “Senate packing” scheme is another partisan power play – this one driven by a desire to add two new U.S. Senators. Not only is this a bad idea, it runs afoul of the Constitution, which would have to be amended to allow D.C.’s admission as a state. I strongly opposed this unconstitutional power grab in the last Congress and voted against it this week, too.

I wanted to start off this week by letting those of you who haven’t heard that the IRS has pushed back the deadline for individuals to file their taxes. You can read about the change to see how it might affect you, and remember, you can always contact my district office if you have questions. This week the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives reconvened for legislative activity, and as they have in recent months, they picked up right where they left off before the Easter Holiday, promoting more bad ideas. As Telegram readers know, I am a member of the House Judiciary Committee. And two of the most extreme ideas – packing the U.S. Supreme Court and promoting “reparations” for slavery – fall directly under the panel’s jurisdiction.
