Every American watching the partial government shutdown understands that we have the makings of a long-term situation.

As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I was among those who interviewed fired FBI Director James Comey on Friday about Hillary’s Clinton’s email scandal and about the initial stages of the FBI investigation of allegations that the Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
James Comey is the heart of the anti-Trump, Mueller investigation.
I urge House leaders and the United States Congress to immediately pass a bill that would supply funds for a border wall—this week.

We are putting our grandchildren in an awful bind. If we cannot pass a budget and reduce the size of government now, we must wonder what kind of America they will see when they grow up.
Before Congress passes any legislation on DACA or a broader amnesty bill for those who are in the United States illegally, we must fund, start, and complete building of the border wall.
