Army veteran Sean Parnell announced Tuesday that he will run for Sen. Pat Toomey’s (R-PA) senate seat in Pennsylvania’s 2022 election. Toomey will not be seeking reelection.

“Protecting and preserving the American way of life has always been a mission of mine,” Parnell told Brian Kilmeade on Fox and Friends.

In his announcement, he pointed out the 50/50 Senate. “I’m running for Senate here in Pennsylvania to take back the majority and stand up for America,” he tweeted.

Parnell is a retired infantry captain. “I’ve led some of America’s finest warriors in battle, and I’m ready to bring that leadership to Washington,” he said in his announcement video.

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
