Rep. Gosar Spearheads Bipartisan Effort to Protect Sacred Hopi Artifacts from Auction

2015/05/22

For Immediate Release

Date: May 21, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) penned a letter, supported by the entire Arizona delegation, addressed to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) asking them to intervene and prevent the auctioning of sacred Hopi artifacts by the Auction House EVE, located in Paris, France, before the next auction scheduled for June 1, 2015.

Late last year, Hopi Chairman Herman Honanie sought out Congressman Gosar, and other members of the Arizona delegation, for assistance in intervening to try to stop the auctioning of culturally significant artifacts.

The joint letter goes on to say, “The auction house located in Paris, Estimations Ventes aux Encheres (EVE), has engaged in the sale of sacred artifacts, despite objections from the Hopi Tribe, the Navajo Nation, and the State Department, among others…We understand from the Tribe that the auction would include the sale of sacred Hopi objects known as ‘katsina friends’. According to tribal tradition, displaying and selling these items is sacrilegious and offensive.”

Congressman Gosar stated, “It is shameful that a French auction house thinks it’s ok to profit off the sale of sacred Hopi artifacts. It is my sincere hope that such items will not be sold at the upcoming June 1st auction and that the relevant government agencies will intervene to prevent this occurrence.”

Congressman Gosar's letter was signed by Arizona's entire delegation, including Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, as well as Reps. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), David Schweikert (R-Ariz.), Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.). 

On December 12, 2014, Congressman Gosar  and several members of the Arizona delegation sent  a letter to the U.S. State Department attempting to prevent a similar December auction of Hopi artifacts. That letter can be found HERE.

Rep. Gosar & House Colleagues Demand Obama Administration Resume Operation Streamline

2015/05/21

For Immediate Release

Date: May 21, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after introducing a bill, H.RES.281, supported by seventeen of his colleagues which demands the Obama Administration resume Operation Streamline and the prosecution of first time illegal immigrant border crossers:

“The Obama Administration continues to defy logic, commonsense and the law when it comes to immigration policy. Terminating Operation Streamline as well as other worthwhile border enforcement programs has unilaterally crippled local law enforcement and hindered border enforcement. Rather than securing our border and enforcing the rule of law, this administration has actually encouraged illegal border crossings and recently started a program that will send planes to Central America to pick up illegal immigrants so they don’t have to make the 'dangerous journey'.

“This dereliction of duty completely undermines our legal process and further weakens the trust of the American people. I will not stand for it and will continue to fight until the president reverses these changes and adheres to the rule of law. Once again, I call on President Obama to resume Operation Streamline and end his amnesty ways.”

Following the introduction of today’s House Resolution Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot commented, “I am pleased to see Congressman Gosar and so many other members of the House demand the Obama Administration follow the rule of law and restart this proven and effective program and resume prosecuting criminal illegal aliens who unlawfully cross the border. At one time, Yuma had the worst record in the United States for illegal entries and the associated criminal activity that so often follows. This program has demonstrated itself to be a strong deterrent and I have seen the benefits firsthand. The arbitrary decision by the Department of Justice to terminate this worthwhile program is misguided and negatively impacts Arizonans.”

Background

The full text of H.RES.281 can be found HERE.

Operation Streamline was implemented in 2005 and established zero-tolerance immigration enforcement zones. This pro-enforcement program requires criminal charges and allows for prison sentences as well as formal deportation for first time illegal immigrant border crossers. The program has proven to be quite effective in detouring illegal immigration and is strongly supported by law enforcement along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot initially contacted Congressman Gosar informing him that the U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona would be diluting the parameters set forth by Operation Streamline (8 U.S.C. §1325) and urged him to question federal authorities about this decision. On August 28, 2014, Congressman Gosar wrote a letter addressed to Attorney General Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Johnson and U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo raising serious concerns about potential changes to prosecutorial guidelines and Operation Streamline. Congressman Gosar’s letter and the original letter from Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot, can be found in its entirety HERE.

The Department of Justice responded with a weak letter that failed to address the questions raised by Congressman Gosar stating, “It is the Department’s longstanding practice not to provide specific information regarding criminal law enforcement policies of United States Attorney’s offices…” Click HERE to read that response.  

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake has introduced a Senate Companion. The text of that bill can be found HERE.

The seventeen original cosponsors that joined Congressman Gosar in introducing this bill include: Trent Franks, David Schweikert, Lamar Smith, Mo Brooks, John Duncan, Scott DesJarlais, Pete Olson, Tom Rice, Tom McClintock, Mike Kelly, Mick Mulvaney, Richard Nugent, Randy Weber, Jeff Duncan, Pete Sessions, Jody Hice and Lou Barletta.

The Gosar bill is endorsed by Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and NumbersUSA.

In April, the Congressman and 37 of his colleagues called on the president to immediately terminate his Central American amnesty flight program. Click HERE to read more.

In Case You Missed It: Rep. Gosar Exposes T.O. Dishonesty, Submits Litigation Discovery into Congressional Record

2015/05/15

For Immediate Release

Date: May 14, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) submitted a statement for the Congressional Record regarding the court case, State of Ariz. et al. v. Tohono O’odham Nation (T.O.). Court litigation was filed against T.O. after it announced its intention to acquire lands in trust for an off-reservation casino on a parcel of land in Glendale, Arizona.

“I submitted a statement for the official Congressional Record on the House floor in order to supplement the record on H.R. 308, the Keep the Promise Act. My statement explains the details of evidence that documents how T.O. acted immorally and covertly against its fellow tribes, the State of Arizona and the general public.

“The court case against T.O. and their dishonest actions to secretly build a casino in Phoenix was dismissed on the doctrine of sovereign immunity. In other words, the court ruled that the tribe cannot be sued in court because ... It can't be sued in court. The merits of the case were never addressed, and that is why Congress’ oversight in these matters is so important. 

“In order to remedy this situation I cosponsored H.R. 308, The Keep the Promise Act, which is narrowly crafted to address those claims that are shielded by T.O.’s assertion of sovereign immunity. Previous Court rulings demonstrate that Congress is the only institution that can hold T.O. accountable for its fraud, misrepresentation and broken promises.

“I believe it is important for the truth to be known. This incident and breach of trust has proven that T.O. can’t be trusted in the future relative to business dealings, tribal matters and commercial relations. I urge Congress to resolve this issue in a timely manner and for the House to once again pass the Keep the Promise Act.”

 

 

Video of Congressman Gosar’s speech on the House floor today in support of the Keep the Promise Act can be found HERE.

The full text of Congressman Gosar’s statement submitted to the Congressional Record can be found HERE.

Background:

In return for exclusivity in Arizona, the state tribes agreed to a cap on the number of casinos in the state and in the Phoenix metro area, to restrict the number of machines in the state and to share machine revenue with rural non-gaming tribes so all could benefit.

Every urban tribe, except for T.O., agreed to this limitation. T.O. refused, citing the need for a new casino in Tucson or on the rural part of the tribe’s reservation. The state and other tribes finally agreed to the restrictions on gaming being pushed by Arizona’s Governor and others, but also yielded to T.O. stated need.

After the agreement was reached, the tribes and state promoted their model compact by saturating the airwaves with press releases, voter handouts, billboards, and in television and radio interviews. T.O. alone spent $1.8 million dollars urging Arizona voters to rely on the limitation which included no additional casinos in the Phoenix area.

However, in 2001, while negotiations were ongoing and unbeknownst to everyone, T.O. had begun efforts to find land in the Phoenix area to open their fourth casino in violation of the 17-tribe coalition compact.

Congressman Gosar is a member of the House Gaming Caucus, a group of Congressional leaders focused on educating Members on gaming-related issues and working to identify key policy areas that can be advanced to enhance the economic impact of gaming around the country.

An identical bill, H.R. 1410, passed the House last Congress by voice vote on September 17, 2013. This legislation has already passed the full Natural Resources Committee by unanimous consent in the 114th Congress.

Daniel Bergin, Head of the Arizona Department of Gaming recently denied a permit for gaming at the T.O.’s fraudulent casino stating, “The record clearly demonstrates fraud perpetrated by the Tohono O’odham Nation upon the state, the Arizona gaming tribes and the state’s voters.”

Rep. Gosar Introduces Bipartisan Legislation, “No Welfare for Weed Act”

2015/05/14

For Immediate Release

Date: May 14, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after introducing the No Welfare for Weed Act, with the support of 24 bipartisan cosponsors, which closes a loophole that prevents the federal government from preventing welfare recipients from purchasing marijuana with welfare benefits:

“It should go without saying that hard-earned taxpayer money should not be used for people to get high. However, there will always be some people who try to game the system and that is why this revision to federal law is necessary. This bipartisan bill is so commonsense that it has earned the support of the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce.

“Let me be blunt: Regardless of any opinions on medical or recreational marijuana use, federal welfare dollars should not be spent to purchase weed. The sole purpose of this bill is to prohibit marijuana from being purchased with SNAP and TANF welfare benefits. These programs provide food and other basic living essentials for the neediest families. My legislation prohibits beneficiaries from purchasing pot with federal tax dollars that should be used by recipients to feed and care for their families.”

Background

The full text of the No Welfare for Weed Act can be found HERE.

A Fox31 Denver investigation from February of this year revealed tens of thousands of dollars have been pulled out of ATM’s using welfare EBT cards and been used to purchase marijuana. That investigation can be found HERE.

Current federal law prohibits TANF benefits from being used for purchases or withdrawals at ATMs in strip clubs, liquor stores and casinos.  The No Welfare for Weed Act will add all marijuana dispensaries to this list of prohibited locations. Additionally, SNAP benefits are not eligible to purchase alcohol, tobacco and lottery tickets. This legislation will add marijuana products—including edible marijuana products—to this list of prohibited items that can be purchased with SNAP benefits.

Congressman Gosar’s legislation currently has 24 original cosponsors including: Representatives Brian Babin, Dan Benishek, Kevin BradyJim Bridenstine, Ken Buck, Paul Cook, John Duncan, John Fleming, Trent Franks, Andy Harris, Tim Huelskamp, Walter Jones, Steve King, Ann Kirkpatrick, Doug LaMalfa, Doug Lamborn, Mark Meadows, Dan Newhouse, Robert Pittenger, Joseph Pitts, Bruce Poliquin, Matt Salmon, Pete Sessions and Ted Yoho.

This legislation is endorsed by the Family Research Council, the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce, Concerned Women for America and Americans for Prosperity.

Rep. Gosar Votes to Defend Life, Ban Horrific Post-20 Week Abortion Procedures

2015/05/13

For Immediate Release

Date: May 13, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the House successfully passed H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, by a vote of 242-184-1 which prohibits late term abortions for unborn babies after 20 weeks post-fertilization:

“In the wake of the horrifying discoveries of the Philadelphia abortion “House of Horrors” operated by Dr. Kermit Gosnell, it is more important than ever to defend innocent babies who aren’t capable of defending themselves. The cornerstone of the Declaration of Independence is the protection of life and today we reaffirm that gruesome abortion procedures have no place in our society.

“Scientific evidence overwhelmingly proves babies are capable of feeling the pain from horrific abortion procedures after 5 months and the vast majority of Americans agree that abortions should be prohibited after 20 weeks. As a father and a health care provider, I am pleased to see the House act today to protect life and the unborn.”

Background

Congressman Gosar is an original cosponsor of H.R. 36 which was introduced by his Arizona colleague, Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-08) as well as Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN-07). The full text of the bill can be found HERE.

Congressman Gosar previously spoke on the House floor expressing his disgust and dismay at the horrifying murders by Dr. Gosnell. The Philadelphia abortion doctor was charged with killing a woman along with four babies born alive at his clinic. Click HERE to watch the Congressman’s floor speech.

From NBC 10 News Philadelphia: In addition to the murder charges, Dr. Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of former patient Karnamaya Mongar. Gosnell was also found guilty of several other crimes including one count of infanticide, two counts of conspiracy, 21 of 24 counts of abortion of an unborn child of 24 weeks or more and 208 of 227 counts of violation of informed consent of an abortion.

Shuster-Gosar Bill Rejecting EPA Water Grab Passes the House

2015/05/12

For Immediate Release

Date: May 12, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 1732, the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act, by a vote of 261-155:

“Today the House passed critical legislation and pushed back against the continued regulatory overreach of this administration by rejecting the WOTUS proposed rule.

“This terrible agency proposal would have disastrous effects and economic consequences for agriculture, small business and municipalities throughout the country. Trying to extort precious water resources and seize control over more of Arizona’s water is an infringement on state water rights and also undermines the federal-state partnership that has been incredibly successful to date. The EPA wanted this fight and today, the House hit back with bipartisan support.”

Background:

This critical legislation requires the EPA and Corps of Engineers to formally withdraw the agencies’ proposed rule that would redefine “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) and dramatically expand agency jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act. Click HERE to read more about this legislation.

This blatant attempt by the Obama Administration to unilaterally expand their jurisdiction over more water through the WOTUS proposed rule violates previous Supreme Court rulings.

WOTUS is so vague and poorly drafted that it encompasses nearly all water sources with any connection to downstream navigable waters, including ditches, pipes, farmland ponds, groundwater as well as other waters traditionally regulated by the state. 

On March 25, 2014, the EPA and the Corps released a proposed rule that would assert Clean Water Act jurisdiction over nearly all areas with even the slightest of connections to water resources, including man-made conveyances.

On May 1, 2014, Congressman Gosar and 230 of his colleagues sent a letter to Gina McCarthy, Administrator of the EPA, and John M. McHugh, Secretary of the Army, urging them to withdraw the proposed rule. The full text of that letter can be found HERE.

On June 2, 2014, Congressman Gosar hosted a joint field hearing on EPA’s proposed rule in Phoenix, Arizona that was attended by four of his Congressional colleagues and 9 Arizona witnesses. Stefanie Smallhouse, testifying on behalf of the of the Arizona Farm Bureau said, “The newly proposed EPA rule for the Waters of the U.S. would be devastating to my family’s farming operation, as well as hundreds of others in agriculture in Arizona…This proposed rule is an economic disaster, and a dream killer for my kids. There is no way a family farm such as ours would be able to withstand the hefty fines which would be enforced as a result of this rule.” More information about that joint field hearing can be found HERE.

Rep. Gosar Acts to Block Amnesty Attempts Included in the NDAA

2015/05/07

For Immediate Release

Date: May 7, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after taking several actions to prevent controversial amnesty language from being included in the fiscal year 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that aims to allow illegal immigrants to serve in the United States Armed Forces:

“I am outraged that our military is being used as a pawn by certain members of Congress in attempts to advance President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty. The House has voted multiple times against this lawlessness and illegal amnesty controversies should not jeopardize funding for our brave men and women in uniform. If implemented, such actions would further reduce opportunities for lawful American citizens who wish to serve at a time when the Pentagon is dramatically downsizing our total number of troops. 

“Members of the Armed Services proudly join the military to defend our liberties, to protect the American people and to enforce the rule of law. Upon entering the United States, illegal immigrants have already broken the rule of law and many only wish to serve to obtain permanent resident status. If this language is left in the NDAA, it potentially jeopardizes passage of this critical legislation. The last place an immigration debate should occur is in the Defense Authorization Act that authorizes funding for our troops.”

Background

Congressman Gosar introduced an amendment on May 7, 2015 to block language introduced by Congressman Marc Veasey (TX-33) that was included in the fiscal year 2016 NDAA committee report which aims to allow illegal immigrants to serve in the U.S. military. Committee report language has the force of law. Specifically, the Gosar amendment prohibits funds for Department of Defense (DOD) evaluations to study if illegal aliens covered by DACA could expand the pool of recruits in our Armed Services or benefit military readiness. The full text of Congressman Gosar's amendment can be found HERE

Congressman Gosar’s amendment is endorsed by Heritage Action, the Federation for American Immigration Reform and NumbersUSA.

Congressman Gosar cosponsored an amendment introduced by Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) on May 6, 2015 which aims to strip amendment language introduced by Congressman Ruben Gallego (AZ-7) that was adopted in the NDAA bill text.  The Gallego language encourages the Secretary of Defense to make illegal immigrants eligible to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces even though we are in the process of downsizing troop levels. The full text of that amendment can be found HERE.

Finally, Rep. Gosar signed onto a letter with 24 of his House colleagues that was sent May 5th to the Chairman of the House Committee on Rules, Congressman Pete Sessions (AL-05) requesting the controversial Gallego be stripped from the NDAA bill text due to the fact that the House already voted to defund DACA three different times. That letter can be found HERE.

Reps. Gosar, Pearce Call on Kornze NOT to Combine New Mexico, Arizona BLM Offices

2015/05/06

For Immediate Release

Date: May 6, 2015

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after spearheading a letter with bipartisan support from his House colleagues to Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Director Neil Kornze asking him to suspend any consideration of merging the Arizona and New Mexico state offices:

“Relocating Arizona’s BLM office to Santa Fe defies commonsense and will lead to permitting delays, job losses, increased wildfires and less efficient land management. Furthermore, forcing 120 Arizona employees to uproot their lives and move to Santa Fe or lose their jobs is not normal workforce attrition.  

“Currently, BLM spends almost $100 million each year on new land acquisition when the agency already can’t manage their existing land portfolio. Instead it should prioritize spending and find the necessary funding for this field office that is critical to Arizona’s economy.

“The millions of acres of BLM land in our state require a local office with local employees that are familiar with the unique topography and multiple land-use planning process utilized in Arizona. This relocation idea hasn’t been thoroughly examined and no economic impact statement has been completed. BLM should immediately put the brakes on this misguided proposal.”

Yesterday the Western Energy Alliance penned a letter to U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Sally Jewell raising similar concerns about this proposal stating, “The addition of Arizona and its large federal acreage to the New Mexico office would only serve to further divide resources in the state office in a manner that is not compatible with BLM’s mission, and it would limit the time and attention the State Director and associated staff may reasonably be expected to devote to each state. Combining the New Mexico and Arizona State Offices into one entity would assuredly lead to gaps in the knowledge necessary to effectively manage the diverse lands and resources that would fall under the purview of the new position.”

Additional

The full text of the letter to BLM Director Kornze can be found HERE.

The letter from the Western Energy Alliance sent to Secretary Jewell can be found HERE.

Western Energy Alliance represents over 450 companies engaged in all aspects of environmentally responsible exploration and production of oil and natural gas in the West. The Alliance represents independents, the majority of which are small businesses with an average of fifteen employees.

The other cosigners of the Gosar-Pearce letter include Representatives: Cynthia Lummis, Trent Franks, Doug Lamborn, Ryan Zinke, Mark Amodei, Martha McSally, Cresent Hardy, Chris Stewart, Scott Tipton and Ann Kirkpatrick.

BLM Deputy Director Steve Ellis held an invite-only briefing for Congressional staff on April 24, 2015 discussing BLM’s consideration of a merger of the Arizona and New Mexico BLM offices into one office in Santa Fe.

The BLM claims the driving force behind this consolidation of these two offices is a potential savings of $1.2 million each year. However, this figure does not include accounting for any expansion of the consolidated office, relocation costs, etc. Furthermore, President Obama requested $1.2 billion for the BLM is fiscal year 2016, a $100 million increase above the fiscal year 2015 level. This is in addition to the $14 million increase the BLM received in fiscal year 2015. The BLM is proposing to spend $93.4 million on new land acquisition in fiscal year 2016.

Between Arizona and New Mexico, BLM administers a total of 25.7 million surface acres of public lands and another 43.5 million subsurface acres. It is the responsibility of the Bureau to effectively and efficiently manage these lands insuring that it maintains healthy relationships between state and local stakeholders.

The BLM in Arizona administers mining claim records and mineral leases on millions of acres of land. In addition, more than 12 million acres of BLM land is suitable for solar and wind projects. Development of these sources is critical to Arizona’s economy and implementing a true all-of-the-above energy strategy.

The Arizona BLM manages permits for active forest management on 11 million plus acres and grazing permits for another 11.5 million acres.  

The Bureau of Land Management's also manages lands within national monuments, in conservation areas and on historic trails. Finally, the BLM manages important outdoor recreation activities on their lands that include fishing, hunting and Off-Highway Vehicle opportunities.

Reps. Cárdenas, Gosar Team Up to Honor Entrepreneurs During National Small Business Week

2015/05/05

For Immediate Release

Date: May 5, 2015

Rep. Gosar contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, U.S. Reps. Tony Cárdenas (D-San Fernando Valley, Calif.) and Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (R-Ariz.) introduced H.RES.246 with 39 bipartisan cosponsors, honoring the vital role of small business and the passion of entrepreneurs in the United States during “National Small Business Week”, beginning on May 4, through May 8, 2015:

“As a former small business owner, I understand how hard it is to create, operate and succeed,” said Cárdenas. “More Americans work in small businesses than anywhere else, and it is those Americans that we recognize today. Small businesses power nearly half of our economy and create more than a third of the goods and services our nation sends overseas. They create, innovate and expand our economy in ways that many Americans will never even see. These small businesses deserve our commendation for their work ethic and commitment to excellence in furthering the economic vitality of the United States.”

Congressman Gosar added, “Since the economic recession that began in December of 2007, American entrepreneurs have boldly navigated extraordinarily difficult times pursuing not only their own dreams but also serving as the economic engine that continues to power our country. I am proud to once again join Congressman Cárdenas in commemorating the courageous efforts of the 28,000,000 small businesses across the nation. By empowering small business and reducing regulatory hurdles that are shackling growth, we can once again unleash the promise of the American dream and usher in a new era of economic prosperity.”

Additional

The full text of H.RES.246 can be found HERE.

This is the second year that Congressmen Cárdenas and Gosar have teamed up to sponsor this House Resolution commemorating the importance of National Small Business Week.
