American foreign policy must focus on promoting freedom throughout the world, and building dependable alliances around the world. While foreign aid is a strong tool to incentivize adherence to these values, our nation should never fund countries or organizations that act against our interests.
Our nation has built the largest economy and the strongest military ever known. We must always leverage that strength to accomplish our nation’s goal of fostering peace and free trade around the globe.

Washington, DC – Rep. LaMalfa today supported a measure that extends a wide array of tax credits for American families, students, farms and employers, creating more certainty and decreasing costs for taxpayers. The bill ends a cycle of last minute, retroactive extensions that have inhibited investment and prevented economic growth. Passed on a 318-109 vote, the proposal will now be considered by the Senate.
Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted in favor of H.R. 4038, a bill he cosponsored to halt the resettlement of Iraqis and Syrians in the United States until the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Director of National Intelligence can certify that every refugee has been thoroughly vetted and is not a security threat. The House acted rapidly to pass the bill after one of the perpetrators of the Paris terror attacks was found to have infiltrated Europe with refugees fleeing strife in Syria and Iraq.
