Lt. Governor Dan Patrick is a principled conservative who is fighting to keep the border secure and Texas families safe.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, In the past 6 years, criminal aliens have been charged with more than 600,000 criminal offenses in Texas. These crimes include kidnapping, homicide, burglary, and much more. There is no excuse for endangering our communities by allowing criminal aliens who have committed a crime to go free.
Expanded Border Security
Lieutenant Governor Patrick fought to add $1.6 billion for increased enforcement on the border.
Ended the practice of sanctuary cities in Texas once and for all.
To make our border truly secure, we must end the idea that anyone can come to America illegally and live in a safe haven where they will never be required to reveal their immigration status. No city in Texas will be allowed to ignore the law. We ended this practice once and for all in session.
Expanded rights for Law Enforcement
Local law enforcement have the right to ask about citizenship status during traffic stops.
