President Trump’s Immigration Executive Order

“Earlier this week, President Trump issued a new executive order to protect Americans from potential terrorists and criminals with stricter vetting of refugees and immigrants,” Smith said. “I appreciate President Trump’s continued commitment to protect innocent Americans from those who enter the United States to do us harm.”

“I support this order that places short-term limits on the admission of new refugees and temporary immigrants from six nations deemed a security threat. This policy ensures that the government has the procedures and information in place to properly vet the backgrounds of certain foreign nationals who seek to come to our country.”

The American Health Care Act

“Since Obamacare was enacted, Americans across the country are experiencing the harmful effects of this failed law,” Smith observed. “Without action to fix the mess Obamacare created, premiums and deductibles would continue to go up while the quality of patient care declines. As a result, the House of Representatives has introduced the American Health Care Act to repeal and replace Obamacare.”

“This plan eliminates Obamacare’s unpopular taxes and mandates. It also expands choice, improves access and lowers the cost of health care for Americans. I support providing affordable and accessible coverage for those with preexisting conditions and allowing young Americans to stay on their parents’ plan until they are 26. My goal continues to be affordable care for all Americans.”

Fighting Against Frivolous Lawsuits

“The House has passed legislation I authored aimed at reducing frivolous lawsuits across the country. The Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act (LARA) passed by a vote of 230-188 and restores accountability to our legal system by reinstating mandatory sanctions for attorneys who file baseless lawsuits. LARA protects innocent Americans from being targeted by junk lawsuits.”
