Weekly Wrap-Up with Congressman Byron Donalds

Weekly Wrap-Up with

Congressman Byron Donalds

October 25, 2021


This past week in Congress, instead of working to find solutions for the national labor shortage, supply chain crisis, rising inflation, or the worsening border crisis – Speaker Pelosi instead called members back to Washington, D.C. to unsuccessfully rally support for her radical agenda. 


Abiding by his constitutional requirement to testify in front of Congress, Attorney General Merrick Garland appeared in front of the House Judiciary Committee this past week to discuss a wide range of issues. Most notably his weaponizing of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to target concerned parents who oppose the implementation of Critical Race Theory in their child’s curriculum. Attorney General Garland weaponizing the DOJ, an agency intended to serve as a non-partisan agency to seek equality and justice under the law, being used to intimidate law-abiding parents without legal basis will not stand. Parents belong in education, not the FBI. 


The Hyde Amendment, an amendment that has had bipartisan support since its inception in 1976, has been cut from Biden’s budget. The Hyde Amendment prohibits federal taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. This legislation has saved over 2.5 million lives from abortion, and today’s progressive Democrat Party wants to end this lifesaving amendment. It’s time to tell the radical Democrats in DC that taxpayer dollars should never fund abortions.


Lastly, the crisis occurring at our southern border continues to reach new heights. During the 2021 Fiscal Year, Border Patrol agents have now apprehended 1.7 illegal immigrants. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now warning Americans that they expect roughly 400,000 illegal border crossings during the month of October. As the severity of this crisis rapidly worsens, our President continues to take another vacation to his Delaware home. Along with his absent leadership on the border crisis, Joe Biden is also attempting to sneak in mass amnesty for up to 10 million illegal immigrants, leaving the American taxpayers with the $100 billion burden. 


Every day that the border remains open and vulnerable, our national security is at risk. President Biden, it’s time to Build The Wall!

Legislative Updates
This past week, I spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives of the radical reconciliation package that includes a $100 billion provision that provides a pathway to amnesty for 10 million illegal immigrants.


This provision endangers our country, further escalates the border crisis, and fails to protect our national security. Watch my full speech below:

This past week, the House Committee on Small Business held a hearing on global supply chains amidst the national worker shortage that our economy is currently facing. In this committee hearing, I discussed the economic consequences that stem from extended federal unemployment benefits and the supply chain crisis that we are currently facing. Watch my remarks below:

Last week, I had the opportunity join NBC’s Meet the Press Reports with Chuck Todd to discuss the ongoing textbook wars and the dangers of implementing Critical Race Theory in our schools.

Serving the hardworking men and women of Florida’s 19th Congressional District is my distinct honor and privilege. It’s time Washington works for our community’s values, and every day I will always strive to ensure your government is working for you.
