Google, Facebook, and other Silicone Valley tech companies have been under fire lately for paying employees differently based on their value to the company, and for not hiring sub-standard persons to work for them.
The House Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to the Financial Services spending bill that would allow DACA recipients to compete with American workers for Federal jobs. So much for Congress putting American workers first!
I urge you to support the recently-passed House bill H.R. 3003 (which would end sanctuary cities) if it reaches the Senate floor for a vote.
I urge you to not sign any relevant spending legislation that does not fund the border requests listed in the White House’s FY2018 proposed budget. For too long, the federal government has ignored border security, and I’m confident that the President’s request for funding would reduce illegal immigration at the border and strengthen national security.
I, along with the vast majority of your constituents, oppose the DREAM Act amnesty. Please oppose this legislation offered by Senators Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin.
I am strongly in favor of protecting the human, economic and environmental values of our desert communities. Therefore I support a Renewable Energy and Conservation Element of the General Plan that restricts utility-scale renewable energy projects to the five severely degraded areas identified by the Board of Supervisors in its February 2016 Resolution to the BLM: Amboy, El Mirage, Hinkley, Kramer Junction, and Trona.
I am disappointed that some of your Senate colleagues are pushing for an increase in H-2B numbers. As H-2B visas typically cover seasonal, entry-level, or unskilled jobs, these visas disproportionately harm young Americans. Increasing H-2B visa numbers would prevent thousands of more young Americans from entering the workplace.
I urge you to support the recently passed House bill, H.R. 3003 that would end sanctuary cities, if it reaches the Senate floor for a vote.
It is not fair for the children of illegal aliens to receive U.S. citizenship at birth. The rest of the industrialized world has moved past this archaic system and I hope you will work to end it by supporting legislation that ends Birthright Citizenship, so that America is able to move past it as well.
Thank you for cosponsoring H.R. 38, The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. Please talk with your fellow Members and encourage them to cosponsor it as well. Remind them that this is one of the most popular bills in the Congress.
