“The new law signed by President Trump today will help states and local communities prepare students for good-paying jobs that are available right now, especially in the skilled trades. With the strong national economy, there are more job openings than people looking to fill them. I have met with students at community colleges and career centers in mid and northern Michigan and I know they are working hard to fill those jobs and earn higher wages. Their teachers are also doing tremendous work and this legislation will give them more flexibility to use the funding they receive to meet the needs of our communities.”

“ICE has done important work on the opioid crisis, seizing thousands of pounds of fentanyl and heroin. It has arrested nearly 2,000 human traffickers, stopping those who victimize women and children in modern-day slavery.
