Speaking on the recent report that President Biden's administration is considering actions that would undermine the #RFS, Sen. @ChuckGrassley asks, "Does President Biden want to be known as 'Big Oil Biden?' I don't think he does." @GrassleyPress
With my friend Michelle Root by my side, I’m going to keep fighting to get my commonsense bill Sarah’s Law — in honor of Michelle’s daughter Sarah — across the finish line to ensure violent illegal immigrants are held accountable & justice is served.
DON’T MISS these staggering statistics on the surge of undocumented border crossings:
Last month, total encounters at the southern border were up 675% from May 2020.
Unaccompanied children encounters were up 1,305% from last May.
For family units, it was 4,143% from last May.
The Biden administration doesn’t seem to be doing much about the border crisis.
@POTUS and @VP still have not even been to the border.
When the Vice President was asked about it last week, her response was “and I haven’t been to Europe.”
.@ChuckGrassley: “Whether it be terminating physical barrier construction at the border, severely limiting the ability of ICE to enforce our immigration laws, or supporting sanctuary cities, the Biden administration has actively sought to undermine border security.”
The Biden administration’s new policies, promises and rhetoric have created this border crisis.
New legalization measures with no discussion of border security or interior enforcement is a recipe for an even longer crisis.
If Biden admin decides 2go down this road of reverting to the Obama-era WOTUS they will b seriously misguided /4 an admin that talks about investments in infrastructure why does it make sense to propose a rule that only adds costs & delays construction w no identifiable benefit??
Biden admin diminishes VOICE office that supports American families harmed or killed by illegal immigration. This office at DHS gave families chance to seek justice Now they compete w ppl in country illegally. Americans deserve a voice & to hv info on criminals who do harm
If the Biden administration decides to go down the road of reverting to the Obama-era #WOTUS, they will be seriously misguided.
@ChuckGrassley urges @POTUS and @EPAMichaelRegan to listen to the farmers and landowners across the country.
Last week, it was reported that the Biden Administration is moving forward to add red tape to their operations by rewriting the Trump Navigable Waters Protection Rule.
Adding more federal red tape to farmers' day to day decisions is government overreach, plain and simple.
1st responders risk everything for us This wk the Senate passed my Protecting America’s 1st Responders Act 2make sure these heroes & their families are taken care of should they die or become permanently disabled Now the House must act
Today I officiated the wedding of my press staffer George Hartmann & his bride Annie Chiang on Natl Mall. It was an honor to be a part of their big day. Congrats! @ District of Columbia War Memorial instagram.com/p/CP_b41qjn_r/…
The bipartisan, bicameral First Step Implementation Act would advance the goals of the landmark First Step Act (FSA), by, among other provisions, making eligible for retroactive review of some of the FSA’s sentencing reforms.
The bipartisan, bicameral Prohibiting Punishment of Acquitted Conduct Act of 2021 would end the unjust practice of judges increasing sentences based on conduct for which a defendant has been acquitted by a jury.
May b a new admin but its the same problems w EPA kowtowing to big oil/ Big oil + labor unions are a BIG problem for biofuels/ Pres Biden don't cave to special interests U need to stand up for the farmers bc u said ur admin wld promote biofuels 2help rural America & honor the RFS
I’ve partnered w Sen Durbin from Illinois for yrs on criminal justice. Today we successfully moved 2 more measures thru the judic cmte that will ensure fairness in our courts. @ United States Capitol instagram.com/p/CP9KeUujckm/…
If Dr. Fauci and his team knew that taxpayer money was going to the Chinese government, what steps did he and they take to oversee how that money was used?
They’ve failed to answer what, if any, oversight was done.
We need to get to the bottom of this.
NEW → “The Judiciary Committee today took an important step to build upon our criminal justice reform progress from 2018 and to ensure that the law is fully and safely implemented,” @ChuckGrassley.
READ more about these bipartisan criminal justice bills:
The people have a right to know if Dr. Fauci and other government officials were derelict in their duty to conduct oversight of the money that they knew would end up with the communist Chinese government.
Sent bipart letter w Sen Klobuchar 2 CMS asking 2 prioritize my new & voluntary Rural Emergency Hospital program Must b implemented in timely manner w rural stakeholders at the table Will help keep essential health care service close 2 home
illegal border crossings continue 2break records According to Customs& Border Patrol May 2021 had a 674% INCREASE over May 2020 The #1 responsibility of the fed govt is natl security& Biden admin can't secure our southern border Biden/Harris' failed policies hv caused this crisis
Higher taxes, excessive spending and escalating debt are not a recipe for our economy to “Build Back Better.”
They’re just a recipe for the government to “Build Bureaucracy Bigger” at the expense of hard working Americans.
.@ChuckGrassley: “Job killing tax hikes will slow economic growth, reduce business investment and result in lower wages and fewer jobs over the long-run.
“As a result, the middle-class is likely to suffer the most.”
If Dr. Fauci and his team know that taxpayer $$$ is going to the Chinese government, what steps did he and they take to oversee how that money was used? Well, that’s exactly what I asked in my March 8, 2021, letter to HHS. They failed to answer what, if any, oversight was done
What a complete mess.
Well, Dr. Fauci, why can’t you know what’s going on inside the “Wuhan lab” if you’re sending taxpayer money to it? For crying out loud, be aggressive and be accountable.
We know the Chinese government can’t be trusted.
the focus has rightly shifted to understanding how the virus started We’ve lost over 500k of our fellow Americans &congress spent trillions 2support our economy during the virus We the ppl hv an absolute right 2kno everything our Govt knows abt its origins
Dr Fauci said Chinese scientists r trustworthy, that “we generally always trust the grantee to do what they say” & “I can’t guarantee that a grantee hasn’t lied to us bc u never know.” He also said “I can’t guarantee everything that’s going on in the Wuhan lab, we can’t do that.”
Vice President Harris said today in Guatemala, “do not come.”
BUT the Biden Administration’s policies incentivize people to come.
There have been 749,613 crossings at our southern border just THIS YEAR.
Actions speak louder than words.
Incl in bill to combat China that passed Senate last nite is Grassley-Klobuchar bill to modernize merger fees & boost antitrust resources This will help antitrust regulators go after anticompetitive activity as well as reduce burdens on small/medium biz
US marketplace is flooded w counterfeit merchandise & a lot of it is from China I got measures to crack down on counterfeit goods entering the US by allowing Trade Enforcement & Trade Facilitation Act + Customs and Border Protections authority to share info on counterfeit merch
China has been lending money outside its borders to extend its influence while taking in U.S. taxpayer dollars via World Bank loans. @ChuckGrassley’s bill would make it official policy to work with our allies to end further World Bank lending to China.
China has used its access to U.S. research and academic institutions to spread propaganda and abscond with U.S. intellectual property. @ChuckGrassley’s provision will shine a light on any financial ties between China & U.S. research/academic institutions.
