DACA Status Update
Many of the children impacted by the DACA program were brought to the United States and have known no other country. Their status deserves a thorough and thoughtful review. While the program may be ending, it should still receive attention by Congress. I encourage my colleagues to take the opportunity to now review this policy closely to see the impact this decision will have on the affected children.

FBI Building Tour
Great news! For the first time since 2001, the FBI headquarters is opening their doors to the public. These tours are a great educational experience, especially for young people who may be interested in a career in law enforcement. If you or someone you know is planning to visit Washington, DC, make sure you request this tour along with many others from my website at Please note: due to the security process, please submit all FBI requests at least 6 weeks in advance of your visit. Additionally, because of limited availability, we cannot guarantee all requests will be fulfilled.
