There have now been over 6.8 million encounters at the southern border since Joe Biden became President. This does not include the 1.8 million “gotaways” who were detected but ...
December 29, 2023 Government should be open, effective, and responsive. It should serve taxpayers well. In our system, the best way to ensure a high level of customer service is for Americans to have meaningful, transparent communication with those who represent them. Since entering the Senate, I’ve made it a pri...
