    What a difference a presidency makes. Under the Obama administration, it was common practice to not only ignore immigration law but to endanger American citizens by releasing criminal illegal aliens back onto the street instead of deporting them. Taking a look at the available data, it is clear President Trump is keeping his promise to keep our country safe by deporting criminal illegal aliens. There is compelling evidence the Obama administration was more interested in politics than public safe... Read more

    It is very simple, at the end of the day this is a question about the constitution and who is the boss? I will not stand for unelected bureaucrats sidestepping their duties to the American people. Rosenstein was given plenty of time. Now he must go. I will fight with the last full measure of my efforts to make sure that the people’s representatives prevail. Read more

  • Rep. Paul Gosar: ICE is the price we pay
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on July 10, 2018 | Preview rr

    Recently, severely misguided people, including members of Congress, have called to “abolish” ICE. To say this is short-sighted and ridiculous is being polite. Open border advocates favor criminals over taxpaying citizens. Open borders activists put our lives at risk due to terrorism, drug trafficking, sex trafficking, and gun running. Their zeal to “transform” America into another third world S-hole knows few boundaries. Read more

  • Pushing drugs, flouting borders

    Congress has declared an opioid crisis in the United States. We have voted on a slew of bills recently, but notably absent is any legislation that addresses the source of the problem. So while we spent billions for addiction treatment, and we granted the Food and Drug Administration more authority to regulate expired or unused drugs and impose packaging restrictions, we did nothing that will have a meaningful impact. Why? Because the problem is the opioid crisis is being brought to us in signifi... Read more

  • Why I opposed the American Health Care Act
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on March 29, 2017 | Preview rr

    Click HERE to read the op-ed originally published by the Prescott Daily Courier. Last week, the debate over the American Health Care Act dominated the news cycle. There was and remains a lot of misinformation surrounding this legislation, the worst being its claim to “repeal and replace Obamacare,” and I want to take a moment to cut through the noise and give you this doctor’s perspective. Before getting to the substance of this bill, it’s important to mention the flawed process used to try and... Read more

  • Donald Trump’s EPA pick will help make the West great again
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on January 25, 2017 | Preview rr

    Click HERE to read the orginal. It should come as no surprise that President Trump won a majority of Western states not only in the primary election but also in the general election. These victories were because he recognized that an overreaching federal government had abandoned Western communities during the Obama Administration. Too often, the most important issues to the West such as water rights, land management and wildfire prevention are mishandled or ignored by unelected Washington burea... Read more

  • Arizonans Agree...No New National Monument
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on November 18, 2016 | Preview rr

    Arizonans Agree: No New National Monument The Hill By: Congressman Paul Gosar November 18, 2016 During President Obama’s two terms in office, we have undoubtedly witnessed the rise of the greatest threat to our Republic: the unprecedented abuse of Executive overreach. The president has openly bragged about using his “phone and pen” as a loophole to avoid the Constitution, the legislative process and accountability to the American people. It is a dangerous precedent that is nearly impossible to ... Read more

  • Doing more with less at the nation's refuges
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on September 29, 2016 | Preview rr

    Most Arizonan’s would likely agree that our national wildlife refuges are important and necessary. Preserving native wildlife is a tradition older than the state of Arizona itself. However, most Arizonans would also agree that the Department of Veterans Affairs is important too. Same thing for Border Patrol, Medicare and our military. All of these government services require tax dollars to maintain. And your tax money is limited, as should be your federal government. The reality is that out-of-... Read more

  • Why Is A Six-Year-Old Boy Influencing Obama’s Refugee Policy?
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on September 27, 2016 | Preview rr

    Millions of people have watched the Facebook video posted by the White House of a six-year-old boy, named Alex, from Scarsdale, New York, requesting to help give a home to a Syrian refugee. “Alex told me that he wanted Omran to come live with him and his family. He wanted to share his bike, and teach him how to ride. He said his little sister would collect butterflies for him. “We can all play together,” he wrote. “We will give him a family and he will be our brother.” Let me first say that Alex... Read more

  • Don’t Allow Bad Policy in Lame Duck
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on June 17, 2016 | Preview rr

    Don't allow bad policy in lame duck By: Congressman Paul Gosar June 17, 2016 Published in the Washington Examiner Back in 1932, Will Rogers famously described the lame duck period in Congress to the New York Times: “It’s like where some fellows worked for you and their work wasn’t satisfactory and you let ’em out, but after you fired ’em, you let 'em stay long enough so they could burn your house down.” Nothing has changed and the American public should be extremely leery of a lame duck followi...
