an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States whose residence is in the United States; or
an alien performing active service in the armed forces.

Rep. Phil Gingrey has been in Congress since 2003, earning a recent grade of an A from NumbersUSA. Rep. Kevin Brady was elected to the House in 1997 and has earned a career grade of an B+.
