Earlier this week, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan issued a subpoena to FBI Director Christopher Wray regarding allegations that the Bureau "sought to use local religious organizations as 'new avenues for tripwire and source development.'"

Democrats Go AWOL on Field Hearing at the Southern Border
House Democrats failed to show up to a field hearing held Wednesday morning in McAllen, Texas to discuss the dire situation at the southern border. As Congressman Mark Green put it, the Democrats have gone "AWOL" on their duties as Members of Congress.
.@RepMarkGreen: “The Democrats…decided to bail [on the border hearing]. Not even show up for work. This is where the duty is today and tomorrow. They’re absent from duty. In the Army, we called that AWOL. The Democrats will be AWOL.” pic.twitter.com/BtublYTvZ6— GOP (@GOP) March 15, 2023
Judge: Border is "Meaningless Line in the Sand" Under Biden
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell gave the Biden Administration seven days to comply with federal immigration laws after siding with Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody in a lawsuit that has been ongoing since 2021:
A federal judge sided with Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody today, ruling that President Joe Biden is responsible for the border crisis and claiming the president effectively turned the U.S. Southwest Border into “little more than a speedbump.” In a scathing 100-plus-page opinion, U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell ruled that Biden’s catch-and-release policy is unlawful and gave the administration seven days to comply with federal immigration law.Read more

Dems in Disarray: Biden Sides with Republicans on D.C. Crime Bill
In a rare move, President Joe Biden has indicated that he will sign into law a Republican effort to block a radical D.C. law that would have dramatically weakened penalties for serious crimes in the nation's capital.
🚨 BREAKING: Even Biden admits crime is out of control in Democrat-run cities thanks to the Left's soft-on-crime agenda.— Steve Scalise (@SteveScalise) March 2, 2023
House Republicans are forcing a bill to his desk to overturn DC's weak new criminal code eliminating mandatory minimums on violent crime—and he won't veto it. https://t.co/sd6b7sh7H5
But Biden shouldn't be given any credit for ultimately stopping the radical legislation. This was clearly a move to save face for Democrats who have largely been responsible for a crime crisis sweeping the country:Read more
Garland Faces New Congress for First Time
On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the first time this Congress. Like in past hearings, Attorney General Garland failed to own up to the obvious problems with the Department of Justice (DOJ) under his leadership. However, a major admission he made alluded to an undeniable failure of the Biden Administration as a whole—Biden's Border Crisis:
Attorney General Merrick Garland says Mexican drug cartels unleashed the fentanyl crisis on the U.S. "on purpose," and urged the Mexican government to "do more" to combat drug trafficking.Read more
Democrats Admit "Real Problems" with Biden First Circuit Nominee
On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a confirmation hearing for Michael Delaney, who the Biden Administration has nominated to fill a vacancy on the First Circuit Court of Appeals. Very quickly, it became apparent that Delaney's nomination would be controversial, as he appeared by himself rather than on a panel with other nominees as is the usual practice for non-Supreme Court nominees. As Carrie Severino explained for National Review, Delaney's role in the public naming of an underage sexual assault victim while representing her school in a civil suit is embarrassing for Democrats:Read more
The Senate Should Join the House in Blocking D.C.'s Noncitizen Voting Law
Last week, the U.S. House voted to block a measure passed by the D.C. Council last fall that would allow noncitizens to vote:
The first resolution took aim at D.C.’s Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act, which allows noncitizen residents to vote in local elections. The D.C. Council approved the measure in October.Read more

House Republicans Issue Subpoenas on Unlawful Targeting of Parents
On behalf of House Republicans, Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan has issued a batch of subpoenas to Biden Administration officials regarding their role in the Department of Justice's (DOJ) alleged targeting of parents who stood up to local school boards for implementing woke policies.

The subpoena comes as Jordan sent four letters to various officials Friday, calling for information and interviews the committee has been requesting, in a final warning shot before he sent the subpoena their way.Read more
