I have a special religious liberty message for the Easter Weekend. I am proud of all my 19 Republican Collegues that voted to provide Texas license holders some protection for deeply help religious beliefs.

We were joined by Senator Lucio (D-Brownsville) as well because this common sense law is supported by the vast majority of Texans. Discrimination should not apply to any person in Texas in the 21st Century!

Speaking in favor, elegantly, is Senate Bill 17 author, Senator Perry (R-Lubbock) as well as Senators Paxton (R-McKinney) and Hancock (R-North Richland Hills). Listen to them now and read more about the bill here: capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/86R/billtext/html/SB00017E.htm

Good idea. Wish you folks felt as strongly about the 2nd Amendment. But the caucus is clueless and stupid when it comes to representing those that elected you. Caring only about business special interests.

The Texas Senate Republican Caucus held a joint press conference with U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick on Caucus Chair, Paul Bettencourt’s, Senate Resolution 535 that declared the Crisis at the Texas-Mexico International Border an Emergency.

Senator Bettencourt (R-Houston) remarked, “The Texas Senate recognizes the obvious, the obvious is that there is a crisis on the border.” Senator Cornyn (R-TX), commented on the rising interdictions, “When it hits 200,000 will that be enough to acknowledge the obvious?” Senator Cruz (R-TX) pointed out that, “In six months we have seen nearly as many people apprehended in all of the preceding year.” Lieutenant Governor Patrick (R-TX) stated, “Since 2011 we have documentation of 1,761 dead migrants that we have recovered in Texas, many in Brooks County.”

State Senator Joan Huffman (R-Houston), stated, “35,000 unaccompanied children, vulnerable to the sex trade, arrived in the last year.” State Senator Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels), commented, “Over 100,000 migrants crossed our border illegally just last month, that is a crisis.” State Senator Pete Flores (R-Pleasanton) added, “We and our constituents are at our wits end. The border today is not the border of my youth.”

When asked what the difference was between Democrats and Republicans on this issue, Chairman Bettencourt responded, "That we voted for the Resolution and we took a stand on the crisis at the border."

Save lives on both sides of the border. Build the wall protect us all.

Call out the NATIONAL GUARD. Or let the MILITA tack charge

Good grief. Use a brain cell or two. Stopping immigration is not the purpose of a wall. It is to make people use the gate so the immigration can be controlled and LEGAL


Cornyn is a rino. Vote him out.

Love to see Made in America again!!!

Get with plan John Cornyn

Oh please !! A wall will do nothing to stop migration!!

Let’s face it !! No body is listening to the people who pay taxes and vote,! Politicians are out for themselves to be millionaires!!😡😡(Ronnie )

I remember years ago calling John Cornyn’s office to let him know he would never get my vote again and guess what it was over? The border wall and he would not vote for it. These jokers think the American public forgets over the years so they keep on getting elected.

Didn’t see anything in the Houston Chronicle about this. The media is pathetic, a million people could come across in a day and they would not report.

John Cornyn voted no on the wall! 😡 Wake Up Texas!!! Vote smart.

Closed the border and build the wall now

Then do something . MASS DEPORTATION

Question: if the Empress and her cohorts don't care whether a pre-born or surviving aborted child lives or dies, why would they care about illegal border crossers?

Well no kidding! Now do something about protecting our borders!!

Check these Walls out. They work just fine. www.facebook.com/1447666389/posts/10214467582070491?sfns=mo

The Empress and Chuckie see Texas as fly-over country. California and New York are the primary sanctuary coasts, and Texas can just go jump in the gulf, as far as they're concerned...so what if there's dung in the streets.

Raise the minimum wage in Mexico to more than the current $7.00 a DAY!

About dam time !!!

having their little convention to figure how they are going to screw the people more

You can't fix STUPIDITY!!

Cornyn, you haven’t done jack about this problem except stand behind individual Mitch McConald in congress at photo ops.

Ted Cruz... water is not wet! But other than that... I agree with everything else! 😁
