Last week I went to a hearing on the increased violence along the US-Mexican border. It was very interesting to hear about how law enforcement agents were working on the border. The main goal of the hearing was to make it so law enforcement officers between the federal level, local level, and Indian affairs could work jointly to stem the rise of the drug cartels. Next, as the Cherry Blossom festival is occurring, the capitol was crowded with tourists who wanted to go on tours. The office itself was fairly routine with nothing out of the ordinary happening. Lastly, Congress is going into its' two week April recess so the office will be running at an out of session pace for the next two weeks.
