He circumvented Congress after a midterm election that sent a clear message that the American people want the president and Congress to work together to solve problems. I believe the right approach is to secure the border, enforce existing immigration laws and work with Congress on immigration reform. Also this month, the Keystone XL Pipeline - which, as we highlighted in our September newsletter, has waited more than six years for approval - was again in the national spotlight as the Senate voted on the project. Though the legislation did not pass, I believe we will have enough votes to pass it and send it to the President's desk after the new Congress is seated in January.

Greetings:

Our military men and women make tremendous sacrifices to protect our freedoms. We recognize and honor their commitment every day and especially on Veterans Day which we celebrated earlier this month. Earlier this month we also celebrated 125 years of North Dakota statehood. We would not be where we are without the determination and moral fortitude of the pioneers who settled North Dakota. God has abundantly blessed us, and like the Pilgrims and Native Americans at the first Thanksgiving, it is to Him we turn to give thanks. Mikey and I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.

The headlines mid-month were dominated in part by President Obama’s executive order on immigration. I do not support his decision to act alone. He circumvented Congress after a midterm election that sent a clear message that the American people want the president and Congress to work together to solve problems. I believe the right approach is to secure the border, enforce existing immigration laws and work with Congress on immigration reform.

Also this month, the Keystone XL Pipeline — which, as we highlighted in our September newsletter, has waited more than six years for approval — was again in the national spotlight as the Senate voted on the project. Though the legislation did not pass, I believe we will have enough votes to pass it and send it to the President’s desk after the new Congress is seated in January. 

Below we talk about these and other happenings important for North Dakota.

Sincerely,

 

John Hoeven
U.S. Senator
