Per Facebook, Rep. Clay Higgins had the following to say during a recent committee meeting on the drug crisis:

Law enforcement professionals tasked with securing our borders don't need DC bureaucrats or politicians, who've never worn a badge, to tell them what their mission is. All they need is for Congress to provide the resources that they have clearly and properly requested.

 “President Trump is right. There is a crisis on our southern border. Tonight, President Trump outlined the facts on our current border situation. Democrats may not accept them, but this is the harsh reality that our border patrol agents and law enforcement officers face daily. If Democrats continue to refuse negotiations, then President Trump should do what is necessary to protect our national security and enforce America’s sovereign borders.”

HIGGINS: 100% Pro-Life

In a recent email to supporters and constituents, Congressman Clay Higgins highlights the 100% voting record he has in Congress concerning the Right to Life:

As children of God, we are called to protect the most innocent, the unborn. Over the last 22 months, my office has supported and fought for pro-life legislation that includes:

  • H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

  • H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

  • H.R. 490, the Heartbeat Protection Act

  • H.R. 4712, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

     No American should ever worry that their tax dollars are being used to fund organizations that perform abortions, which is why I have also supported every effort to defund Planned Parenthood and advance pro-life protections. I will continue to support legislative efforts like this in the U.S. House of Representatives.

HIGGINS: Making Tax Cuts Permanent

The following was provided by Congressmen Clay Higgins’ office concerning tax cuts. 

Friends -

I want to give you a quick update on Tax Reform 2.0, which passed through the U.S. House of Representatives last week. This includes three bills that make President Trump's tax cuts permanent, expands savings options for American families, and encourages small business innovation. This is a big win for all Americans.

Since passing historic tax cuts last year, we have seen a reignited American economy, millions of new jobs created, record low unemployment, bonuses, pay increases, and new investments across the country. American workers now keep more of their money, and Tax Reform 2.0 makes those tax cuts permanent.

According to the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, locking in tax cuts for individuals and small businesses will create 1.5 million new jobs, boost wages by 0.9%, and increase long-run GDP growth by 2.2%. We're going to keep growing our economy and producing wins for American workers.

Here are some of the specific changes included in Tax Reform 2.0 that will benefit your family:

Protecting Middle-Class Tax Cuts

  • Makes lower tax rates permanent for individual filers
  • Locks in the enhanced Child Tax Credit
  • Creates a Paid Family Leave Tax Credit

Promoting Family Savings

  • Allows small businesses to join together to create 401(k) plans to their workers
  • Eliminates the age limit on IRA contributions
  • Expands 529 Education savings accounts, allowing them to be used for apprenticeship fees, homeschooling costs, and paying off student debt
  • Allows families to access retirement accounts without penalty when welcoming a new child by birth or adoption
  • Creates a new Universal Savings Account (USA) to offer a flexible savings tool for families to use at any time

Encouraging Small Business Innovation

  • Allows new small businesses to write off more of their initial start-up costs
  • Expands access to research & development credits for start-up businesses

These reforms build on the successes of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act and major regulatory reform that has reignited our economy. We continue to push for conservative, pro-growth policies that create jobs and grow the economy. As Tax Reform 2.0 heads to the Senate, I am hopeful that it will be considered and passed quickly.

Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) introduced a resolution last week requiring senators and representatives to undergo random drug tests once every term.

“Elected officials in Washington, D.C. should be subject to the same kind of random drug screenings that blue-collar, working-class Americans have to endure,” Higgins said in a statement.

“Congress shouldn’t get to live by a different set of rules,” he said. “This effort is about maintaining accountability and ensuring sober service to We, the People.”

LAFAYETTE, LA - Today, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is officially endorsing Congressman Clay Higgins for re-election to the United States House of Representatives.

“Congressman Higgins has used his time in office to lower our taxes, protect our nation, and put America first,” said Jeff Landry. “He has worked together with President Trump to achieve positive results for Acadiana families, and I am confident he will continue to fight tirelessly for us.”

“From Abbeville to Crowley and Lake Charles to Morgan City - the people of Southwest Louisiana are hard-working, God-fearing, patriotic Americans just like Clay,” explained Landry. “We are fortunate to have Clay's experience, leadership, and passion as he represents us in Washington.”

“I join President Trump in support of Congressman Higgins” added the Attorney General. “I look forward to casting my ballot to keep Clay in Congress, and I encourage all my neighbors in the Third District to do the same.”

The LAGOP Endorses Clay Higgins for Congress

The LAGOP Endorses Clay Higgins for CongressThe Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana, Friday, announced its official endorsement of Clay Higgins for Louisiana's third congressional district.

“No one is more conservative and more reflective of the citizens that live in the third congressional district than Congressman Clay Higgins,” Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Louis Gurvich said. “President Donald Trump, the Executive Committee of the LAGOP, and I encourage all conservatives in the third congressional district to vote for Clay Higgins in the upcoming midterm election.”

Clay Higgins is a true 'Cajun conservative,' he believes in a strong national defense, and he's working around the clock to make sure that our borders are impenetrable. He also has a no-nonsense attitude towards government waste and unconstitutional federal overreach.

Rep. Higgins is still just as much of the Acadian he was back when he started his first term. Rep. Higgins makes it very clear to anyone he speaks with that he does not take part in the toxic D.C. culture. "I don't live in D.C.," he often proclaims, "I may from time to time sleep in D.C., but I live in Acadiana."

One of Rep. Higgins core beliefs is that he was sent to D.C. to represent his constituents and not special interest lobbyists. Constituents of the third congressional district should feel confident that Rep. Higgins will be one of the few in Congress who are fighting to drain the swamp in D.C. once and for all.

In 1979 Clay Higgins enlisted into the Louisiana National Guard where he reached the rank of Staff Sergeant. Later in life, he became an officer of the law in St. Landry Parish, which is where he became known as 'America's toughest cop, Captain Clay Higgins.' He is a man of service, no doubt about it.

Rep. Higgins' voting record is one of a reliable conservative, he voted to repeal Obamacare, voted for president Trump's tax cuts, and has been a faithful defender of our constitution. So we are encouraging you to join us this midterm election and re-elect Clay Higgins to represent Louisiana's third congressional district.
