Michael Thomas “Mike” McCaul, Sr. (born January 14, 1962) is a member of the United States House of Representatives from Texas. He has served since 2005, and he sits as the Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee.

U.S. House of Representatives

Despite being a Republican, McCaul has taken RINO and globalist positions on border security and immigration, opposing a border wall along the border with Mexico and supporting cheap foreign labor.[2][3] Conservative supporters of increased border security have called him "No-wall McCaul" due to his weak and globalist border security stances.[4] These weak border security positions effectively blocked McCaul from being asked to join the Trump Administration as the Secretary of Homeland Security.[5]

In late July 2020, McCaul voted to remove Civil War-era statues.[6] He also later voted in favor of a bill sponsored by a far-left Democrat to condemn the use of the term "Chinese virus" as being "racist".[7]

2020 elections

The CCP has targeted McCaul with a disinformation attempt to influence the 2020 U.S. House elections.[8] While the election was rated as a tossup by the Cook Political Report,[9] he managed to win re-election.[10]

117th Congress

Despite the 2020 election fraud, McCaul opposed Ken Paxton's lawsuit in Texas v. Pennsylvania,[11] refusing to join many conservative Republicans who opposed the damaging of election integrity in several swing states run by Democrat governors. McCaul later blamed the 2021 Capitol riot on Donald Trump[12] and voted against the objections to the congressional certifications for the Biden electors in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona. However, he later voted against the second Democrat impeachment attempt against Trump.[13]
