Congressman Ralph Abraham says the 9th Circuit Court  is overreaching. 

He says he stands with Donald Trump on the second try at an travel ban.

Abraham said, “I certainly think the judge is overreaching.”  

“Since 2014 there have been almost 600 cases of terrorism prosecuted in this country.”

President Trump’s second order would not be the first time a group of immigrants was singled out.

The Ouachita River may be in trouble due to lack of commercial use.  The ”Low Use” designation  means funds could be scarce for dredging and locks and dams.  The funding relies on a formula  of lock usage and tonnage.

Congressman Ralph Abraham thinks the formula for funding should be based on other factors.

Abraham thinks more commercial river traffic is a great thing.  He thinks the Ouachita River has a bigger impact than commercial traffic alone.

On Monday General Michael Flynn resigned from his post as National Security Advisor after questions about his involvement with Russia.

Congressman Ralph Abraham thinks there are forces within the government leaking classified information to the media.  

"The leakers are the problem not General Flynn," said Abraham. 

He said over 60,000 people have access to our national secrets but less than a dozen are revealing our secrets.

"Finding these people will be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but we have to look."
