Press Release

Washington, DC – On Saturday, April 29th, President Trump will serve his 100th day in office. Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21) gave the following statement on President Trump’s accomplishments since inauguration.

Rep. Smith: “President Trump has had a very successful first 100 days in office. He has appointed a highly qualified cabinet, added a new Justice to the Supreme Court and rolled back more regulations than any president in history. His pro-growth policies account for consumer confidence reaching a 16-year high.

“President Trump has also made dramatic steps to secure the border. He has prioritized the deportation of criminal immigrants, allocated resources to construct physical barriers along our southern border, increased the number of immigration and border personnel and cracked down on cities that provide sanctuary to illegal immigrants from federal law. As a result, illegal immigration is decreasing and our communities are safer.

“We in Congress have kept up with President Trump’s rigorous pace. So far, Congress has sent 29 bills to the president’s desk that have been signed into law. Four of those 29 new laws are bills from the Science, Space and Technology Committee of which I am chairman. These include: H.R. 255, the Promoting Women in Entrepreneurship Act; H.R. 321, the Inspiring the Next Space Pioneers, Innovators, Researchers, and Explorers (INSPIRE) Women Act; S. 442, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017; and H.R. 353, the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act. These crucial bills will greatly help the American people and bolster our scientific and educational endeavors.”
