  1. In a public statement issued to the press, Representative David Bautista (D-FL-23) strongly condemned President Macmillan's executive order to deploy the military to the border, citing it as a violation of federal law and a moral failing of the Administration. His full statement is as follows: President Macmillan's recent use of executive action to activate three regiments from the Texas and Arizona National Guard is not only a direct violation of our national values, it is an unlawful order. Under the Posse Comitatus Act, the President of the United States has no legal right to use the military to enforce domestic policy. That is to be left to law enforcement officials, and this jurisdiction belongs to the United States Border Patrol. In our day and age, it has been far too common to forget these laws in the name of 'national security' and defense from terrorists and criminals. But it is not going to be MS-13 or ISIS on the other end of that M4. It will be sons and daughters, moms and dads--people like you and me. People who are fleeing tyranny and terror. People whose only crime is that they wanted a better life for themselves and their children. I do not believe the President is a bad man, but his misguided views threaten the welfare of millions of innocent people. That is why I call on President Macmillan to do the right thing and to desist with this illegal action and gross overreach. I call on the President to instead work with the Congress in creating bipartisan legislation that will help secure our border from drug cartels and terrorist organizations without infringing on the human rights of migrant families.

    The latest news and updates from Congressman David Bautista of Florida's 23rd
  4. Sovereign

    David Bautista

    David Antonio Bautista (born April 21, 1974) is a Dominican-American politician currently representing Florida's 23rd congressional district. Previously a businessman, he challenged incumbent Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and defeated her and fellow primary contender Tim Canova for the Democratic nomination. He went on to defeat the Republican nominee Joe Kaufman in the general election by a ten point margin. Prior to becoming politically active, Bautista served as a member of the United States Air Forces and Air Force Reserve from 1992 to 2004. During this period, he saw action during the Iraq War, particularly during the initial 2003 incursion, and began his law education at Florida International University. After his discharge at the rank of Staff Sergeant, Bautista completed his law education, graduating with a Bachelor of Economics degree and a JD. He served with several legal defense firms for two years following his graduating and clerked with Judge Maria Cooke of the Eleventh Circuit for one year. He was appointed by President Barack Obama to replace Alexander Acosta as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. In 2016, he stepped down from his position to run for Congress. Since his election, Congressman Bautista has been a primary sponsor of numerous legislation, none more ambitious than the Douglass–Puerto Rico Admissions Act. His name has been listed among many by political pundits as a possible Democratic candidate to challenge Republican frontrunner Rick Scott in replacing outgoing U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, though Bautista has declined to comment on future political ambitions.

    Arthur Callahan (Democrat)

    Character Name: Arthur Callahan Home State: Washington Previous Job: Education (University President, Professor, etc) Date of Birth: 11/02/1963 Race / Ethnicity: White Religion: Catholic Wealth: Upper Middle Class Gender: Male Sexuality: Heterosexual Are you married?: No How many children do you have?: 1 Arthur James "Big Jay" Callahan (born November 2nd, 1963) is an American politician currently serving as the representative for Washington's 6th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. A former educator, Callahan was previously a high school instructor and as well as a vice principal. He later served a two-year stint on the county board of education, and four years as the Superintendent of Schools. Though Callahan initially had no immediate national ambitions, local Democratic operatives urged Callahan to make a run for Congress following the retirement of Norm Dicks. Callahan seized this opportunity and won with a comfortable margin of victory, in part thanks due to the momentum of President Obama's reelection victory and the rise of libertarianism which had split the conservative vote. He went on to win reelection in both 2014 and 2016. Though Callahan's national rise to prominence has been slow, he has been recently named by pundits as a possible choice to replace Maria Cantwell in the Senate, though has since declared his intent to support her candidacy should she run for reelection. Still, in a post-2016 world, there is a unmistakable void in leadership without President Obama, and a unifying voice will be needed to bring both the progressive and moderate wings of the Democratic Party back together to face a fully-Republican America in the coming months.
