Weekly Update - 2.18.24

Good afternoon, and welcome to our Weekend Update.

The Biden Administration has created a disaster at our southern border by failing to enforce immigration laws, crushed the natural gas industry through its continued assault on American energy, and stifled the U.S. economy through excessive spending. I joined "Mornings with Maria" on Fox Business to dive into all of these pressing topics. Click here or below to watch.


It seems every decision coming from this White House from a national security standpoint and an economic standpoint makes the United States weaker and more vulnerable, both at home and abroad. I addressed Biden's failures on the floor of the United States House. Click here or below to watch.

Under President Trump, the border was secure. During his tenure, he implemented policies that fortified the border, disincentivized illegal immigration, and kept America safe. And while these same laws existed when Joe Biden took office, the current Administration swiftly dismantled the Trump White House’s successful policies.  Most notably, Biden quickly eliminated the successful Remain in Mexico program, creating an absolute disaster at the border. At the direction of President Biden, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been derelict in his duty, and his reckless failure to execute the immigration laws on the books is an impeachable offense. His actions have jeopardized the national security of the United States, and he deserves to be removed from office. I joined the "American Agenda" on Newsmax to discuss Biden's failure at the border.

IN NEWS YOU WON’T HEAR IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA: Biden border crisis passes 9 million illegal crossings.

Biden and his administration have all the authority he needs to reverse the executive actions he implemented to allow our border to be flooded with illegal immigrants. He has the ability to enforce existing laws. He has all the power to end the border crisis right now, but BIDEN REFUSES!



  • Illicit drugs are flowing into the country at an alarming rate, with only 5 to 10 percent being intercepted as border officials struggle to contain the smuggling.
  • Fentanyl is now the leading cause of death for Americans age 18 to 45, with the number killed by the drug up 94 percent since 2019.

Securing our southern border is not difficult. We have done it before, and we will do it again. Unfortunately, it is clear that the Biden administration has no interest or desire to do so. The only way to secure our border, stop the invasion of illegal immigrants who we know nothing about, and the flood of deadly drugs like fentanyl is to re-elect President Donald Trump. President Trump secured the border once, and he will do it again!

This week, I attended an event for the Trump campaign event and a roundtable with supporters. I was joined by several of my House colleagues, John James, Burgess Owens, Kevin Hearn, and Elise Stefanik. 

It was a pleasure to welcome and meet with Miloslav Stasek, the Czech Ambassador to the United States. During our meeting, we discussed various topics concerning economic development for both the United States and the Czech Republic.

Unsurprisingly, the Biden Administration continues to use the heavy hand of government and pays no attention to small businesses. Watch below as I question the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network about their poorly implemented rule that will only burden America’s businesses while failing to identify the shell companies it was designed to catch.

The Biden Administration is responsible for over $450 billion in new regulations, hindering the success of Main Street America.

The EPA’s Clean Power Rule 2.0 and PM 2.5 Rule will only further burden our nation’s job creators. The Biden Administration’s own Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy said the EPA “has significantly underestimated the cost that its proposed rules would impose on small entities.” This week, in the House Committee on Small Business, we heard from small businesses and those who support them about how detrimental these EPA regulations will be.

Earlier this week, I was happy to meet with leaders from several YMCA branches across Pennsylvania. The YMCA plays an important role in communities throughout the country, including in Pennsylvania’s Ninth District. We discussed how Congress can support the organization’s mission to empower youth to become engaged citizens, critical thinkers, and ethical leaders.

This past week, we filed our campaign petitions with the Pennsylvania Department of State to get my name officially on the ballot as I seek re-election for the great people of the 9th Congressional District. We filed nearly 2.5 times the required number of petition signatures and have strong support throughout the 9th District. I am humbled and thankful for the outpouring of support. I want to again thank the many great volunteers across the district who helped circulate my petitions.

Now it is time to ensure we get out the vote to ensure Republican victories in November. You can make your voice HEARD in the Primary and General Elections by clicking here. Be sure to Bank Your Vote today!

We look forward to catching up with you next week. God Bless, and see you soon,

Dan Meuser
