It’s also important that we resist ill-considered proposals which Democrats call “election reform” but have little to do with actual security. Remember, their top priority for this Congress is a big effort to change election rules, largely to benefit their side.

I am proud of the work our government has done to shore up our defenses of American democracy and deter foreign interference. I'm glad the administration is laser-focused on continuing the progress. Our adversaries aren’t letting up and our preparations are not letting up either.

Increased agency coordination. Millions of dollars in direct aid to state election officials. Updating election systems. These are just a few of the parts of the ongoing, coordinated federal, state, and local campaign to shore up America’s election security.

It’s a fact: The Trump administration, hand-in-hand with the Senate has punched back hard at Russian election interference that happened on the Obama administration’s watch.

Vladimir Putin’s efforts to interfere in our 2016 elections were completely unacceptable. And they did not come out of nowhere. They were preceded by eight years of growing Russian assertiveness in foreign meddling while the Obama administration failed to confront it.

The good news continues under Republicans’ pro-growth, pro-opportunity policy agenda. More than 200,000 new jobs were created in June. American workers are in high demand. The economy is overflowing with opportunities. Now we are seeing a real all-American recovery.

On our Independence Day, I am also thinking of the people of Hong Kong, Burma, Venezuela, and so many other places where the struggle for freedom, democracy, and human rights continues to this day.

This amendment would be a radical departure from constitutional traditions and norms. It would weaken American deterrence and diplomacy at a time of heightened tensions caused by Iran’s aggression in the Middle East. The Senate must defeat it.

In modern warfare, time is of the essence. Senate Democrats are proposing a dangerous amendment that would hamstring the executive branch from reacting quickly in a crisis and prevent the U.S. from taking decisive action.

I’m glad our House colleagues passed the Senate’s bipartisan funding bill for the humanitarian crisis on our southern border. I just signed off on this badly-needed legislation and now it’s finally on its way to the President’s desk.

The need for humanitarian funding is drastic. The House should pass the overwhelmingly bipartisan Senate Bill as quickly as possible and finally provide this badly overdue emergency border funding.

House Democrats have had eight weeks to pass emergency border funding. All they could pass was a partisan bill that failed in the Senate. The Senate’s bill is overwhelmingly bipartisan and what can be signed into law.

The Senate will not pass a border supplemental bill that cuts funding for ICE and the Department of Defense. We already have our compromise. The Shelby-Leahy bill is the only game in town. It’s time to quit playing games and make a law.

The Senate has just passed a bipartisan emergency appropriations bill for the crisis at the border by an overwhelming 84-8 vote. The House should pass this funding bill right away.

I’m grateful the Committee passed my bipartisan bill to help curb the spike of youth tobacco use. I look forward to continuing to work with Senator Kaine & our colleagues on this vital legislation to help protect kids from tobacco’s addiction:
