The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed the "Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act" on Thursday along party lines. Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-N.D., and Rep. Michelle Fischbach, R-Minn., voted against the bill, which faces a much harder path in the gridlocked Senate.
Shaw writes, "Some recent votes in Congress remind us that democracy is very much under siege. Those votes dealt with voting rights and the alarming Jan. 6 attack."
Charles P. Nord, James A. Rogers Jr. and Kort M. Plantenberg were killed on Dec. 5, 2019, after the Blackhawk helicopter they were riding in experienced engine failure. The legislation aims to rename the post offices in Perham, Winstad and Avon, respectively, where the guardsmen were from.
Fischbach, a first-term Republican who represents northwestern Minnesota, last month proposed two bills, seeking to rename the post offices in Vergas and Oklee. In Oklee, Fischbach suggests, the facility should be named for Coya Knutson, the first woman elected to Congress from Minnesota; in Vergas, Fischbach hopes to see the post office named for Jon Glawe, a veteran and mail carrier.

Officials were unified in their criticism of the Biden administration’s continued border restrictions which also include the U.S./Mexico border. The southern border, some legislators say, is porous, and illegal immigration continues on a daily basis, while vaccinated travelers are unable to enter the country, and impact the economic well-being of border regions. The widespread availability of vaccines and rising vaccination rates in Canada, are other reasons they say the border should be reopened, particularly after Canada began allowing vaccinated travelers to visit the country on Aug. 9, provided they follow entry protocols.
Democrats and Republicans split on the Biden Administration's response and called for help to safely evacuate U.S. citizens and allies.
