Trump Orders Targeted Military Strike on Syria After Its Use of Chemical Weapons on Innocent Children
Despite the Obama Administration, including then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice, claiming to have successfully removed all chemical weapons from Syria in 2013, we learned this week that another chemical weapons attack was carried out by the Syrian regime on its citizens. In response, President Trump ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the deadly chemical attack was launched on innocent civilians, including women and children.

The tyrants and dictators around the world better take notice that for the first time in eight years we have a strong and decisive commander-in-chief in the White House. Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad’s barbaric use of chemical weapons on innocent men, women, and children must be met with consequences. As a father and grandfather, it is heart wrenching to see the use of chemical weapons on young children. I commend the President for his firm leadership and making clear to Assad and the entire world that such evil will not be tolerated. American leadership is back and it is high time.
Babin Praises Confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court
Congratulations to Judge Gorsuch on being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Throughout his extensive confirmation process, Judge Gorsuch has shown himself to be uniquely qualified and experienced to serve on our nation’s highest court. I commend Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for standing strong and confirming Judge Gorsuch in the face of unprecedented and hypocritical obstruction by Senate Democrats. Judge Gorsuch’s commitment to our Constitutional principles and judicial restraint is a huge win for the American people, the rule of law and the future of our Democratic Republic.
Babin Op-Ed in The Daily Caller: 
"Failed Immigration Enforcement Leads To Tragedy"
President Donald Trump declared this past week to be National Crime Victims’ Rights Week in an effort to bring awareness to the negative – sometimes fatal – impact crime has in our communities. I am pleased that this Administration is bringing attention to the victims of crime, along with taking proactive steps to prevent such crimes.

The government’s failure to secure our border and deport criminal aliens has a direct impact on the safety of Americans. National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is an opportunity to highlight what happens when our immigration laws are not enforced. For the sake of these victims and their family members, it is crucial that we secure our border, deport criminal aliens and assist the victims of crimes.

I support President Trump in his efforts to achieve these goals, and specifically applaud him for establishing a special office to assist victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) will help those harmed by criminal aliens and demonstrates that failed immigration enforcement is not a victimless crime.

True to the office’s name, these individuals will finally have a “voice” with which to tell their stories. There are many who, in the name of political correctness, seek to silence these victims. But there is too much at stake in our great nation for that to let them succeed.

It is my hope that more legislators, from both sides of the aisle, will also support victims of crimes committed by criminal aliens and accurately diagnose the root of the problem, which is failed immigration enforcement. We should all be thankful that we have a President willing to stand up for all Americans.
