Legislation & Advocacy

U.S. Capitol, Washington, D.C.

 

From Grassroots to Government

Republican women are concerned, educated citizens. A proud army of women in red, we are involved in our communities and states and want to preserve our nation’s principles of freedom and prosperity grounded in the U.S. Constitution. It endures because we care enough to advocate for laws and public policy at all levels of government -- from state legislatures to Capitol Hill -- that strengthen and protect our democratic Republic.

Securing the Border

America’s border and immigration policy must serve the national interests of the United States. Not surprisingly, it is polling as the number one issue across our nation and affects us in all walks of life. 

A comprehensive robust border security package must: 

  • End Asylum Fraud. 
  • End “Catch and Release.” 
  • Finish the Border Wall. 
  • Increase Border Patrol resources in conjunction with closing loopholes in the immigration system. 
  • Mandate E-Verify to ensure legal employment. 
  • Oppose amnesty in any form.

Rebuilding the Economy 

A strong America needs a strong economy. Private Sector Job Creation, Fair and Free Trade, Energy Independence, and Tax Relief for working Americans are all necessary to keep America great and growing. 

NFRW supports legislation that puts Americans to work, provides for affordable and reliable energy and lets our citizens keep more of what they earn. We will look at American and foreign policy that is detrimental to our American way of life.

Radar Initiatives - 2024


Keep Nine 

The NFRW Legislation & Research Committee has adopted the Keep Nine Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as one of our radar initiatives for 2024-2025. 

The two pieces of legislation we are supporting are House Joint Resolution 8 and Senate Joint Resolution 21. The legislation has been endorsed and supported by the NFRW for several years and simply states that, “The Supreme Court shall be composed of nine justices.” 

The purpose of the amendment is to stop “court packing” and finalize a set number of justices on the Supreme Court.
