Demanding Answers on Sanctuary Airports


I joined with Republican colleagues on the Senate Commerce Committee in pushing for more answers about the housing of illegal immigrants at major airports nationwide. We sent letters to the executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and the interim chief executive officer of the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates the Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). On February 10, an illegal immigrant from Ecuador being housed at JFK broke into a secure area of the airport while possessing two weapons. Given the protections self-declared “sanctuary cities” provide, we are questioning the vetting process for illegal immigrants being housed at these airports.

In January, we first opened a probe of sanctuary airports when we sent a letter to Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson demanding answers regarding O’Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport’s housing of illegal immigrants. One week later, reports showed that O’Hare International Airport was no longer housing illegal immigrants.

Earlier this week at a Senate Finance Committee hearing, I discussed how the CHIPS and Science Act has increased U.S. global competitiveness and benefited the U.S. economy. Since the bill became law in 2022, the semiconductor industry has announced more than $240 billion in private sector investment in the production of both foundational and leading-edge microchips.

Effort to Establish the U.S. AI Safety Institute

The rapid advancement of AI innovation has brought forth immense possibilities and opportunities. With these advancements comes potential challenges and risks that must be addressed in a safe manner.

I spearheaded an effort to secure initial funding to establish the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) U.S. Artificial Intelligence Safety Institute (USAISI). Earlier this year, I led Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), and Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) in sending a letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee in support of initial funding for the USAISI. Click here to read the letter.

The USAISI will provide a dedicated platform for research, collaboration, and implementation of safety measures in AI development. USAISI’s work will be critical to ensuring AI technologies are developed in a manner that reflects our shared democratic values and supports American industry and jobs.
