Roby votes against compromise


U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) voted against the debt ceiling compromise bill Monday night. The measure passed the House 269-161 in a roll call vote. “I was unable to support this legislation because, after a careful reading of the bill, I fear it could ultimately result in devastating and unjustified cuts to our national security,” Roby said in a prepared statement released by her office. “This bill, unlike previous proposals I supported, has a weak firewall against potentially destructive defense cuts. To be sure, there are savings to be found in the ...


Roby announces support for Speaker Boehner's debt plan


All eyes in Washington have been on the renegade Republican freshmen and whether they would back or buck their leader in the crisis negotiations to raise the debt ceiling. On Thursday morning, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby firmly placed herself in the category of backing House Speaker John Boehner's proposal to cut spending in exchange for raising the nation's debt limit, and avoiding a financial calamity. Roby, R-Montgomery, led a gang of more than 25 freshmen in a crowded press conference outside the U.S. Capitol to say that Boehner's plan, while not perfect, is better than nothing. "Some people ...


GOP's Martha Roby wants more domestic energy


Weekly remarks by President Obama, as provided by the White House Recently, there have been signs that the economy is picking up steam. Last month, we saw the strongest job growth in five years, and have added more than three-quarters of a million private sector jobs in just three months. But there are still too many Americans who are either looking for work, or struggling to pay the bills and make the mortgage. Paychecks aren’t getting any bigger, but the cost of everything from groceries to college tuition keeps on rising. Without a doubt, one of the biggest burdens over the last few ...

Sanctuary Cities Put on Notice
When Jeff Sessions was selected to lead as Attorney General, I was hopeful that he would make defunding sanctuary cities a priority. I’m pleased to report that some of last week’s policy discussion in Washington focused on this issue.   Sanctuary cities are municipalities that have implemented policies designed to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation. For instance, the city of San Francisco prohibits its police force from complying with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents by denying them access to interview incarcerated immigrants to determine legal status. ICE depends on cooperation from state and local authorities, and sanctuary city policies greatly hinder their ability to enforce our immigration laws.   Sanctuary cities are magnets for illegal immigrants, including some dangerous people with criminal records. There are more than 140 jurisdictions and six states actively obstructing enforcement of federal immigration laws with sanctuary policies. Thi
Roby Honors Wounded Warriors at White House
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today attended a special White House event honoring wounded service members and veterans as the Wounded Warrior Project’s Solider Ride made its way through Washington, D.C. The Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride is a four-day cycling opportunity meant to help those who have suffered war injuries overcome the physical and psychological burdens resulting from their service. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump hosted a special ceremony for the Soldier Ride at the White House Thursday. Roby was proud to attend the event and show support for those participating. “For so many wounded warriors, the road to recovery can be long and difficult. Soldier Ride offers wounded service members and veterans a unique opportunity to help each other build confidence by participating in a challenging physical activity,” Roby said. "I appreciate the President and First Lady hosting this special event and f
Roby Statement on Confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today celebrated the confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States.   “I applaud the Senate for wasting no time in confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. I believe our country will benefit from the new energy and experience that Justice Gorsuch will bring to the bench,” Roby said. “Throughout the confirmation process, Justice Gorsuch proved himself to be a highly capable individual who is supremely qualified for this great responsibility. I believe his stated commitment to interpreting the Constitution as it was written will hasten a long overdue return to the separation of powers and rule of law in this country."   ###
Roby’s Global Child Protection Act Passes Committee
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A bill by U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) to combat the sexual exploitation of children in the United States and around the world passed the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.   H.R. 1862, the Global Child Protection Act, closes loopholes in current law that allow child predators to evade prosecution for certain abuses committed overseas. Roby said advancing measures like this to protect children was a primary reason she joined the House Judiciary Committee.   “Crimes against children are shocking and ugly, which is what makes this subject so hard to talk about sometimes,” Roby said. “There are loopholes in current law allowing child predators to evade punishment for their abuse of children overseas. The Global Child Protection Act aims to close these loopholes and better equip law enforcement to protect children and punish abusers.”   Under current law, certain types of sexual contact are not explicitly covered under the criminal def
