Our law enforcement professionals on the border are doing an amazing job, but are under tremendous stress due to the number of migrants presenting themselves at the border and being interdicted at non-border crossing areas. These law enforcement members need our help, both in terms of funding and also in terms of fixing the loopholes in our immigration laws. We need to accomplish this both for our law enforcement and for the sake of the migrants they are attending to.
As a former FBI Special Agent in New York City, it was humbling to be invited by the President to attend the signing of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund renewal. I am grateful to have been included in this event with President Trump and Vice President Pence, and to see the hard work of all our 9/11 First Responser advocates come to fruition. I would like to thank @reppeteking @repmaloney
and Jon Stewart for their tireless advocacy on behalf of our nation’s heroes.

Today I joined League of Women Voters of the U.S. and Common Cause on the steps of the Supreme Court to call on the Supreme Court to end partisan gerrymandering, which takes away the power of people to decide their representatives. Today the court heard arguments on two cases that I filed an amicus brief on.
Family Promise of Lower Bucks provides support, housing, meals, and employment assistance to homeless families in our community. I stopped by their open house to learn more about their work and thank them for selflessly giving to others.

One of the greatest honors in serving our community in Congress is spending Christmas Day with our U.S. Troops deployed to war zones oversees, so that I can personally express the love and gratitude that our community has for their brave service and sacrifice. Today, on behalf of our community, I served Christmas dinner to our courageous heroes who’s missions include operations in Iraq and Syria. And I ran into Bucks County’s own Andrew Alexander of Doylestown and Mike Mignogna of Warrington, two courageous hometown heroes and public servants! To each and every one of you and your families, Merry Christmas! Please take a moment today to appreciate and love one another, and please take a brief moment to say a prayer for the courageous women and men who are away from their homes and families today out of sacrifice to each and every one of us, in order to protect us and keep us safe. Merry Christmas everyone!!

Today, on the anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, we remember the brave American servicemembers who lost their lives 77 years ago. We reflect on the service and sacrifice of every veteran who served in World War II. Their courage serves as a guide of American resiliency and patriotism. May we continue to honor all those who have bravely served our great nation.
America mourns as we lose a true American hero and true statesman, George Herbert Walker Bush.
As one of the youngest Navy pilots during WWII, George H.W. Bush demonstrated remarkable patriotism and selfless humility. Through his steadfast leadership, President Bush guided our nation to the peaceful end of the Cold War, underscored with the demise of the Berlin Wall. May his profound legacy of public service serve as a reminder to all Americans, “We as a people have such a purpose today. It is to make kinder the face of the nation and gentler the face of the world.” Now he is reunited with Barbara, his beloved wife. I send my sincerest condolences to the Bush Family, who selflessly shared President Bush’s life with our nation for over seven decades. Rest in peace, Mr. President.
