Commentary: When America Needs More Border Patrol, the Swamp Hires More IRS Agents
To know what our elected officials truly prioritize, it is important to ignore their teleprompter-fed rhetoric and focus on their actions. As Deep Throat once told Bob Woodward in a dark, underground parking garage, “Follow the money.”
At this point, it would take a certain kind of partisan dead-ender to deny our nation faces an immigration crisis.

Axios reports that thus far, 11 House incumbents – seven Republicans and four Democrats – have lost their primaries.
