Texas continues to face one challenge after another. The biggest challenge, it seems, is the Biden Administration and the continued attempts to weaken Border Security. Thankfully, I have joined with Gov. Greg Abbott in supporting AND funding the largest border security effort in state history.
This session, as a member of the House budget-writing committee I fought for and delivered more than $5.1 billion in continued funding for Operation Lone Star. After securing this historic funding, Gov. Abbott announced a new plan to deter the dangerous crossings that have led to so many immigrants drowning.
With the continued attacks by the Biden Administration, I wanted to set the record straight and provide an update with the latest dispatches from the Texas-Mexico border. Click here to read the latest from Operation Lone Star and why this buoy system is the right choice to strengthen border security.
The work continues and I know lawmakers will keep the discussion going during the forthcoming special session. Texas will continue to secure the border, build barriers, and put boots on the ground.
