Democrats in Congress, feeling the heat, passed on the President’s first request to get $50 million to house the detainees in the U.S. But, they said the just wanted more details. So now is the time to ratchet up the pressure even more. Now is the time to push for the bill that keeps these killers out. That is why I cam calling on Speaker Pelosi to give the House the opportunity to vote on this bill so that we can know exactly where all members stand on this issue. It is a matter of national security.

Our brave soldiers have risked and given everything to keep terrorists away from our families and loved ones – and yet we may bring them here ourselves?

Not on our watch. Not in our backyard.
