Rep. Lesko introduces immigration bills
Late last month, Rep. Debbie Lesko introduced six bills targeted to address the root causes of the border crisis. According to KTAR, three bills would focus on “cutting down asylum applications”, two bills allocate funds for more detention beds and more immigration judges, and the final bill would “allow authorities to detain a ‘small segment’ of criminal immigrants for extended periods”.

Sen. McSally tours border with DHS Sec. McAleenan
Senator Martha McSally spent her first part of August recess at the border touring a U.S. Border Patrol processing center and speaking with Arizona National Guard members working at the border. She also spoke with Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan on the state of the border. She even had the opportunity to exercise her fighter pilot skills and flew herself to Yuma.

Meghan McCain announces new audio-book
Last week, conservative commentator Meghan McCain announced her newest project: an audiobook! Scheduled to be released next year, her audiobook will offer a “blueprint” for conservative politics while discussing lessons learned from her father, the late Senator John McCain. The View cohost will dive into what it means to be an American and a conservative. She talks in her announcement video about wanting to keep the McCain legacy of bold conservatism alive. I personally can not wait for this to drop!
