Weekly Wrap-Up with Congressman Byron Donalds

Weekly Wrap-Up with

Congressman Byron Donalds 

November 15, 2021


As our nation continues to live in a post-COVID-19 world that includes access to three vaccines, therapeutics like monoclonal antibodies, and natural immunity from prior infection, we see the growth of another ongoing pandemic: government overreach. This disastrous politized pandemic shuttered businesses, kept our children out of the classroom, and devastated middle America. These same politicians are drunk with power and upping the ante on their reckless and constitutional totalitarianism. Look no further than the lawless actions by President Biden’s egregious and illegal vaccine mandate. My office has heard from countless constituents who fear for their livelihoods and careers as their employer embraces Biden’s mandate and forces employees to take the jab or lose their jobs.  


Despite a higher court ruling delaying the administration’s order, Biden and his cohorts in Washington proceed with their lawlessness. This administration’s blatant willingness to ignore the courts is another unconstitutional act by this President and one that shows his careless disregard for our Constitutional Republic. I will continue to do everything in my power to oppose these orders that are forcing people out of a job and on the unemployment line under the government’s control. My stance on the vaccine has never wavered, get vaccinated if you so choose, and if not, you should have the right to choose. I applaud Governor DeSantis and Attorney General Moody for taking charge and challenging this administration’s continued attempt to force the heavy hand of government into the American population’s medical decisions.                   


Lastly, the crisis at our southern border continues to unravel, and to date, U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended nearly two million illegal immigrants. Another alarming fact on the border is the apprehensions of deadly fentanyl. In 2021, agents have seized more than 11,200 pounds of fentanyl, a 53% increase from last year. Keep in mind; these are apprehensions; while the men and women of the Border Patrol try their best to stop this crisis, the reality is drugs and people are following through the border in areas where the personnel and border wall are not present. Furthermore, Biden and ‘Border Czar’ Harris are spreading the border crisis throughout the country with late-night charter flights inundating American communities with thousands of illegal immigrant minors, including Jacksonville and Tallahassee. Since these revelations, I have led my colleagues to expose this reckless action and demand answers from those perpetuating these radical policies.

Legislative Updates

Socialism is knocking at our door, & Biden’s ‘lack of’ infrastructure bill & tax and spending BBB proposal will unilaterally dismantle the American economy. Low-income families, blue-collar workers, & seniors on fixed incomes are feeling the brunt of Bidenomics.


While Americans suffer under the weight of Biden’s policies, and now a 30-year high CPI, this administration continues to act in denial. My full statement is below:


President Biden’s federal vaccine mandate is an egregious misuse of power & violates the U.S. Constitution.


I’m proud to Co-Sponsor The Freedom From Mandates Act, introduced by my colleague Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) which prohibits the federal govt from coercing Americans into a medical decision against their will. Click the link below for more information on this critical legislation:

Community Engagement
Last week, I was proud to join VFW Post 10127 in North Fort Myers to personally celebrate & thank a few of our nation’s heroes. The selfless service & sacrifice of our veterans must never be forgotten.


To all of those who have served past & present – thank you!




In October, our office opened 157 cases and solved 82 of them. I couldn’t be prouder of the great work of my district staff and all they do to help the people of Southwest Florida.

In The Media






Last week on ‘Mornings with Maria’ on Fox Business, I joined the program to discuss President Biden’s socialist spending packages, breaking his promises not to raise taxes on the middle class, and how these bills cater to the wealthy elite. Click the link below to watch my interview:

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.
