Congressman McHenry Weekly Update
 
Standing Up For Life
 
I am proud to stand up to protect and defend the sanctity of human life. I am encouraged by you and your fellow pro-life Americans as you keep this solemn tradition. It is your commitment to the pro-life movement that proves you are the true leaders of this important cause.

For over 40 years, Congress has upheld the Hyde Amendment, prohibiting taxpayer-funded abortions. This is estimated to have saved the lives of 2.4 million babies. This week, I was proud to join with 199 of my colleagues in pledging to ensure the Hyde Amendment and other pro-life appropriations provisions remain in place. Click here to read the letter.



The Biden Administration's Immigration Policies
 
Last week, I sent a letter to David Pekoske the Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), on the Biden Administration's recent interim immigration enforcement and removal policies. One of these policies is a 100-day pause on deportations of any noncitizens, which violates the Sanctuary for American First Enactment (SAFE) Agreement. It is unacceptable that DHS’s new policy went into place within forty-eight hours, without gathering any feedback from local agencies and communities that signed the SAFE Agreement. One of the signers of this agreement is our own Sheriff Sam Page of the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office in the Tenth District.  The SAFE Agreement not only helps to ensure immigration laws are being properly enforced, but it also ensures the safety of local law enforcement and the communities they serve and protect.

Giving People A Better Chance Of Achieving the American Dream
 
Earlier this week, I spoke about the importance of finding solutions for the millions of Americans who lack access to traditional credit. I believe there are a number of changes that should be implemented in the credit industry, such as increasing competition among companies and adding new ways to calculate credit scores. By doing these things, we can give people a better chance of achieving the American dream. Click here to learn more.



President Biden's Coronavirus Relief Plan
 
I also joined Spectrum News to discuss President Biden's coronavirus relief plan. Additional, targeted relief is something that all of Congress could get behind. Unfortunately President Biden’s plan—which is universally supported by Congressional Democrats—is a partisan bill full of wasteful provisions having nothing to do with COVID-19.
