Washington, D.C. – Today, Speaker Kevin McCarthy (CA-20) announced that Congressman Juan Ciscomani (AZ-06) will deliver the Republican Address to the Nation in Spanish following the State of the Union, next Tuesday, February 7th.

Speaker McCarthy released the following statement:

“Congressman Juan Ciscomani’s story is nothing short of inspirational: as a young boy, he and his family immigrated to the United States with the profound intuition that in America, anything is possible. 

“While Democrats’ woke politics would have you believe the worst in our nation, Juan and his family are a shining reminder of what we look like at our best. They are the American Dream, and Congress is all the better because of the unique perspectives and lived experiences that Juan brings to this institution. I look forward to hearing his response where I know he will share with viewers Republicans’ Commitment to America to empower the American people and hold the Biden administration accountable.”

Congressman Ciscomani shared the following statement:

“I’m humbled and honored by the opportunity to deliver the Spanish response to the State of the Union address. My message will be simple and straightforward: the American Dream is a dream worth fighting for. The people of my district in Arizona and Americans across our country want accountability, responsibility and sensibility restored in our nation’s capital. As part of the new House majority, I look forward to working with my colleagues to secure our Southern Border, strengthen the economy, and do the work the American people expect of us.”



Congressman Juan Ciscomani represents Arizona’s 6th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. Juan and his family immigrated to the United States and established roots in Tucson, Arizona, where his father worked as a bus driver to give his children a shot at the American Dream.

After college, Juan worked for the University of Arizona and the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce before joining Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s administration as Senior Advisor and Vice-Chair of the Arizona-Mexico Commission. Juan focused on the issues of international trade and diplomacy, border security, and economic development.

Elected in November 2022, Juan became the first naturalized American citizen from Mexico to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives in Arizona history. As a proud beneficiary of the American Dream, Juan is determined to fight to keep that dream alive for others.

Juan resides in Tucson with his wife, Laura, and their 6 kids.
