Our schools should be places to equip the next generation of leaders. As a father with two children in public school, I'm committed to making sure our public schools are strong and well-equipped to tackle the tough job of teaching our kids. The Texas Legislature recently passed an expansion of rural broadband to help combat the new challenges to our schools brought up by COVID-19. I was grateful for the opportunity to co-author that legislation, and I look forward to bringing that mentality to Congress.
In Texas, we have some of the best teachers in the world. I want to see them supported and given the resources they need to help our kids succeed. We must stop forcing teachers to comply with radical indoctrination and get the focus back on education. We must invest in our children. They are the future of this nation. Some of my efforts include:
- Cosponsoring HR 4828, The Border Security for America Act of 2021, which will resume the construction of a border barrier system along the US Mexico border, authorize DHS to deploy tactical infrastructure and technology, and increase staffing levels at CBP.
- traveling to the US Mexico Border along with my Republican colleagues to see the devastation that is occurring in Texas.
- Cosponsoring B-Verify Act of 2022, which will collect biometric information from every illegal alien in order to protect children from human trafficking and deter asylum fraud.
