Fischer Statement on President Biden’s Amnesty

“Policies like President Biden’s amnesty give illegal immigrants yet another reason to ignore our nation’s laws and flood the border. They tell them: if you enter our country illegally, but stay here long enough, we’ll let you get away with it. Rewarding illegal behavior begets only more of it—expect illegal border crossings to rise,” said Senator Fischer.

Fischer Supports IVF, Not Democrat Scare Tactics

“Raising a family in this country is a beautiful part of the American dream. Like my Republican colleagues, I strongly support IVF, which has made that dream a reality for millions of Americans, including my extended family.

It’s a transparently political attempt to smear Republicans and attack religious organizations,” said Senator Fischer.

It also includes a number of my bills that make precision ag technology more affordable and increase connectivity in the field, tools producers use to conserve resources and cut costs. My Democratic colleagues should recognize the value of this modernization effort and work with Republicans to create a farm bill that puts producers first,” said Senator Fischer.
