Press Release |

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D., a House Freedom Caucus member, rejected the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019, voting against the bill in the House of Representatives.

Press Release | Veterans, Border & Immigration Enforcement, The Constitution & Federal Oversight, National Security

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democrat infighting nearly prevented passage of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in the House of Representatives today. The annual defense policy bill, which for 58 years has passed with bipartisan support, instead passed on a party-line vote, surviving only because of concessions to far-left socialists, insisting on the elimination of programs critical to defending the United States from Russia, China, Iran and other adversaries, said Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D.

Press Release | The Economy, Border & Immigration Enforcement, The Constitution & Federal Oversight, National Security

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Legislation granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens passed the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives today. Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D., voted against the bill, the American Dream and Promise Act, releasing the following the statement: “Already this week, the House passed a disaster aid bill without a single dime to alleviate the disaster at the border. Today, Nancy Pelosi and her caucus passed a bill providing amnesty and a path to citizenship, as well as Medicaid, food stamps, and other welfare benefits, to millions of illegal aliens, but no resources to prevent more than a hundred thousand from crossing the southern border every month. It would encourage legal aliens to break the law, to receive the same preferential treatment, and reward repeat criminals, including gang members..."
