Matt Salmon (R-AZ)introducedKate's Law to punish criminals who have been deported numerous times.The legislation didn't get far beforeDemocrats stopped the effort on the Senate floor.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters favor a five-year mandatory prison sentence for illegal immigrants convicted of major felonies who return to America after being deported. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% oppose such legislation, while...

    The DHS has been releasing illegal immigrants with violent criminal records back into local U.S. communities, where they have often gone on to commit violent crimes against American citizens, according to new disclosures by a leading lawmaker and local law enforcement agencies. Rep. Matt Salmon (R., Ariz.) and law enforcement officials petitioned the Obama administration to end a policy that enables illegal immigrants with criminal records to be released back into the US. Arizona law enforcement officials announced on Tuesday that three illegal aliens with violent criminal records had been released by DHS and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) back...

    The conservative Club For Growth released its annual scorecard for 2013 on Monday, bestowing two Republican U.S. senators — Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah — and four GOP congressmen with 100 percent ratings for their voting records “based on issues relating to limited government and economic growth.”The four congressmen with perfect ratings for 2013 are Republican Reps. Matt Salmon, Trent Franks and David Schweikert of Arizona and Tom McClintock of California. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan got a 99 percent rating in 2013 “but because of rounding has a 100 percent LifeScore,” the group said.“2013 saw...
  • Reindeer farmer saves 'cromnibus' with yes vote (Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.)

    The cromnibus had an unlikely savior Thursday afternoon in the form of a lame-duck lawmaker who used to raise reindeer. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), who lost his primary earlier this year, was originally among the conservative Republicans who voted against the rule. Without the help of Democrats, Republicans could only lose 17 of their own to pass the rule, which sets up floor debate for the underlying "cromnibus" spending bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) intervened once there were 18 Republican defectors and not a single Democrat voting "yes." Many Democrats will vote against the government spending measure because they...

    GOP members have released their draft amendment to defund President Barack Obamas national amnesty. None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available, including any funds or fees collected or otherwise made available for expenditure, by this division or any other Act, or otherwise available to the Secretary of Homeland Security, for any fiscal year may be used to implement, administer, carry out, or enforce the [amnesty] policies, says the short amendment. The new anti-amnesty language is being pushed by Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon, South Carolinas Rep. Mick Mulvaney and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat, who unseated the GOPs pro-amnesty majority...

    Dozens of House Republicans have signed onto a new letter that insists the GOP include language in the upcoming spending bill to prevent President Obama from taking unilateral action on immigration, escalating a simmering fight between Congress and the White House. Rep. Matt Salmon, an Arizona Republican who organized the letter, said Congress needs to use its power of the purse to defend its own powers to write immigration policy and he said he believes there could be enough support even in the Democratic-controlled Senate to win. Im not going down without a fight, he said in an interview...
  • Did Andrea Mitchell Just Laugh at Obama's Credibility?

    Not saying President Obama should be jittery about Andrea Mitchell jumping the White House fence anytime soon. Even so, the prez would have reason to be concerned if such a generally staunch ally as Andrea openly laughed at his lack of credibility. View the video and judge for yourself. On today's Morning Joe, Republican Rep. Matt Salmon predicted that President Obama would send ground troops into Syria sometime after the November elections. Andrea asked "despite the president's promises?" To which Salmon replied "he also promised if you like your insurance you can keep it. Come on." Much mirth and hilarity...

    Lets face it: Ive been a thorn in leaderships side, says Arizona Republican Rep. Matt Salmon, sitting at his desk in the Rayburn House Office Building. Earlier that day, Salmon had just been named by Speaker John Boehner to a special working group on the crisis at the southern U.S. border, where tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are streaming into the country with hopes that President Obama will grant them amnesty. Salmon is the most conservative member of the new group, and his selection by Boehner is surprising, to say the least, given that the Arizonan has been a...

    The gay son of Rep. Matt Salmon, Arizona Republican, told KPNX-TV in Phoenix on Sunday that both MSNBCs The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell and CNNs Piers Morgan Live canceled interviews with him because he refused to attack his father on the air. Matt R. Salmon, the son, said MSNBC canceled his appearance because they had intended to be critical of him and I was unwilling to do so. He also said CNN seemed very gung ho about an interview at first, but when he said he was supportive of his father, they seemed to lose interest.

    Closing but still trailing in recent polls, Republican Matt Salmon got aggressive with Democrat Attorney General Janet Napolitano from the opening bell of the final gubernatorial debate Wednesday night. Salmon spent his introductory comments, where other candidates talked about their qualifications, criticizing Napolitano on taxes, abortion and gay issues. "My opponent wants to raise taxes. I oppose that," Salmon said. "My opponent, Janet Napolitano, supports gay adoption. I don't. She supports Vermont-style same-sex marriages. I think that's extreme." Napolitano said later that Salmon was, again, distorting her positions. Napolitano said she opposes gay marriage, wants to close tax loopholes to...

    Now trailing in public opinion polls, Republican Matt Salmon on Monday launched one of his strongest attacks yet against front-runner Janet Napolitano during a live debate by suggesting she cares more about endangered species than national security. Salmon confronted Napolitano, a Democrat and the state's attorney general, about her refusal to back federal legislation that would exempt military bases from certain environmental laws. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had asked all state attorneys general for their backing this summer. But Salmon said Napolitano was one of only seven attorneys general who said the laws are needed to force the...
