South Florida Deserves New Solutions
Our nation has long been the land of opportunity where those who work hard and play by the rules are able to find success. Generation after generation has been better off than the last.
Families across South Florida are seeing fewer opportunities to do better for themselves. Many young people graduate from college and struggle to find good jobs. Many are getting by but not getting ahead. Washington politicians have failed at proposing and implementing polices that would lead to an economy that gives everyone a fair shot.
Now, more than ever, South Florida needs new and effective leadership – a new generation of leadership that will work to pass the government reforms needed to build a healthy economy and result in greater freedom and opportunity.
That is why I am honored to represent the people of South Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida’s 26th District. Thank you for your support and trust.

Carlos Curbelo, who has emailed other members of Congress asking them to sign on to a letter opposing the new policy, which the Miami Republican called “misguided.” ….
Miami Rep. Carlos Curbelo appointed to defense bill conference committee

Carlos Curbelo, who is pro-immigration reform, was one of only 20 Republicans (including fellow Miami Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen) to vote against an amendment that stripped the National Defense Authorization Act from a provision that would have pushed the Pentagon to allow young people brought into the country illegally as children to serve in the military …
