This month’s installment will be about a Congressman and a House Resolution.
Representative Andrew Steven Biggs is a Congressman from Arizona. He represents Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District. This district is to the east of Phoenix. It encompasses towns such as Mesa, Chandler, and San Tan Valley. When he was running for office, Biggs made six campaign promises:
The first one was no pay for all members of Congress until a balanced budget amendment was passed. The second was to rein in the bureaucratic rule-making process from the executive branch and to restore it to the legislative branch. The third was to end Obamacare.
The fourth was to pass Grant’s Law. In 2015, ICE ( Immigration and Customs Enforcement ) released 20,000 criminal illegal immigrants. They had been convicted of things like murder, sex crimes, and drunk driving. Grant Ronnebeck, a store clerk in the East Valley of Phoenix, was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant. Grant’s Law will prevent criminal illegals from being released and put back on the streets.
The fifth was to repeal Common Core. The sixth was to remove Arizona from the Ninth Federal Circuit Court and put it in the newly-created Twelfth Federal Circuit Court. The Ninth Federal Circuit Court is too big, too overworked, and too slow. Seventy-seven percent of its rulings are overturned.

On August 7, 2018 Congressman Biggs introduced a bill known as H.R. 6657. This bill is divided into eight sections, as follows:
SECTION ONE of this bill is “Short Title.” The short title of this bill is the “Fund and Complete the Border Wall Act.”
SECTION TWO of this bill is “Border Wall Trust Fund.” No later than sixty days after the enactment of this bill, the Secretary of the Treasury shall establish an account in the Treasury of the United States. The account will be known as the “Secure the Southern Border Fund.” The money deposited here is to be appropriated by the Secretary of Homeland Security.
The Secretary of Homeland Security can appropriate this money for two purposes. The first purpose is to plan, design, construct, or maintain a barrier along the international border between the United States and Mexico. The second purpose is to purchase and maintain necessary vehicles and equipment for U.S. Border Patrol agents.
There is one limitation placed on this. Not more than five percent of the funds deposited may be used for the second purpose.
SECTION THREE of the bill is “Border Crossing Accountability and Security.” At the end of each fiscal year, the Secretary of Homeland Security will prepare a report. In this report will be the number of apprehensions of aliens who illegally crossed the border between the United States and Mexico during that fiscal year. Also in the report will be the nationality of the aliens that were apprehended.
For each alien that is apprehended from a certain nation, the United States will decrease the foreign aid to that nation by two thousand dollars.
