The security of our nation is under constant threat. America's enemies are still at large and plotting to attack our citizens and intimidate us into abandoning the course of freedom. I believe protecting our homeland is the most important function of our federal government. We must be vigilant in our defense and never waver in our commitment to the security of this country. As a mother of two children, I understand that every parent wants their children to grow-up in a safe environment. As a Member of Congress, it is my #1 priority to work towards a secure America for my children as well as every generation of this country's citizens.
