Today, I held a roundtable at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami to discuss the opioid crisis plaguing Florida. Participants included members of the Miami-Dade Police Department, Florida Department of Children and Families, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and others.

I’m grateful for the work these community leaders are doing in the struggle against this epidemic plaguing Florida, and it...

We know lethal synthetic drugs such as fentanyl and carfentanil are being shipped in from outside the United States, and they are increasingly contributing to the devastating opioid abuse epidemic we are facing in Florida. From Palm Beach to Sarasota to Orlando to Pensacola, fatal overdoses attributable to heroin, fentanyl, and carfentanil are destroying families and communities. I’m joining...

As good as Tim Tebow is on the football field, he is even more extraordinary off the field. We saw this once again recently when his foundation held its #NightToShine initiative, an annual prom for special needs students from all over the world.

All told, 375 churches participated as Night To Shine hosts in all 50 states, 11 countries, and on 6 continents. There were 150,000 volunteers, and...

I have a message for Vladimir Kara-Murza, a Russian dissident leader and friend, who's been mysteriously poisoned again.
I want people to think about our politics here today in America. Because I don’t know of a single nation in the history of the world that has been able to solve its problems when half the people in a country absolutely hate the other half of people in that country.

Turn on the news and watch these parliaments around the world where people throw chairs at each other, and punches, and ask...

Our offices in D.C. and Florida are receiving many calls from outside our state. Unfortunately, this can make it harder for Floridians to get through or leave a voicemail. We have many staff members dedicated to answering phone calls, email and voicemail messages, and we are committed to listening to concerns and comments from all Floridians, and providing assistance with federal agencies and...

#Iran’s continued development of its ballistic missile program illustrates why tough words from the Obama administration were not enough—and why Congress and the White House should adopt the Iran Non-Nuclear Sanctions Act without delay.

Florida’s citrus growers contribute so much to our state’s economy. I had a great discussion with members of Florida Citrus Mutual this morning about how we can support our producers, especially as they deal with the citrus greening crisis plaguing our groves. We need to make sure funds are available for research so that we can mitigate and hopefully one day cure this pestilence, and I’m also...

This week I spoke to members of China Aid, an international non-profit Christian #humanrights organization that promotes freedom of religion in #China. I met the wives of two Chinese rights advocates who both asked that America champion their husbands' cases in the hopes that they can see them again. Both men, Jiang Tianyong and Tang Jingling, are human rights lawyers disbarred for their...

One of the gross injustices that occurred in the Holocaust’s aftermath was insurance companies systematically failing to honor the claims of survivors and their families – an offense that continues to this day. It’s been more than seven decades since the concentration camps were liberated, and it’s shameful that Holocaust survivors still have not been compensated. Insurance companies should...

Judge Gorsuch is a highly qualified, mainstream jurist, which is why he was unanimously confirmed to the circuit court by the Senate in 2006. By all accounts he has the right temperament and experience for the job, and I’m pleased to see him nominated to serve on the U.S. #SupremeCourt. Most importantly, he is committed to the principles of original intent and judicial restraint. This is...

Yesterday, I visited Immokalee, Florida, where I met with students and faculty from the Redlands Christian Migrant Association's (RCMA) Immokalee Community School. RCMA is an organization that provides educational and child care opportunities for rural, low-income farmworker families.It was a true pleasure learning more about the group’s mission and work they do in rural communities, and just...

The more the science of embryology and neurological developments is researched and better understood, the more clear it has become that every unborn child is a person. This scientific fact is why abortion advocates resort to justifying millions of abortions by pointing to the most infrequently reported reasons. In the last two years in Florida, less than one-third of one percent of all...

Marco Rubio on the March for Life: “I Will Never Apologize for Standing”Against Abortion

I believe there is no human right more fundamental and more sacred than the #RightToLife, and that every single human being is entitled to the protection of our laws. Every year scores of men and women visit our National Mall to peacefully march for the rights of people who cannot yet march or speak for themselves, countless babies who have yet to be born. Sadly, since the Supreme Court’s...

I am proud to welcome Coastal Florida Police & Fire Pipes & Drums to Washington for the inauguration. It was an honor to meet with the band ahead of their performance in the Inauguration Day Parade, and I know they will make our entire state proud.
Today we honor a man who dedicated his life to the advancement of civil rights in our nation. Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy has inspired generations of Americans, and I’m proud the American people come together today in his honor.

As we reflect upon the positive change Dr. King’s work brought to bear in our society, we also remember a shameful era of widespread, systemic discrimination and...

Just as he has done throughout his decorated 44-year military career, General James Mattis will serve our nation honorably and effectively as our next secretary of defense.

Dr. Ben Carson is an extraordinary person. He's a man of limitless compassion and concern for others. A man who has never forgotten where he started out in life and all the obstacles he had to overcome to achieve the American Dream.

I've seen with my own eyes the major challenges facing the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). I’ve seen how lapses, incompetence and a lack of...

Serving with Jeff Sessions over the past six years, I've seen him work relentlessly to uphold the rule of law against the abuses of the Obama Administration, particularly at the Department of Justice. Jeff is a formidable lawyer with an intense passion for defending the #Constitution – two of the many qualities that will serve him well as attorney general of the United States.
