Texas-Mexico Border is Longer than People Think

Texas-Mexico Border Longer than Distance from Boston to Jacksonville, Florida

Texas shares 1,254 miles of border with Mexico – that’s a longer distance than Boston to Jacksonville, Florida…and that’s how much ground we have to cover when the federal government isn’t doing its job. It’s impossible.

That’s exactly why for each illegal immigrant we apprehend, at least one more gets in that we do not see. Many in law enforcement believe we only catch 1 out of every 2 or 3 who illegally cross the border. That’s in addition to the got-aways that you have been hearing about. Got-aways are illegal immigrants law enforcement sees crossing our border through surveillance and are unable to catch because they cannot get there quick enough due to our extremely long border. I was on Varney & Co this morning weighing in on the consequences of the border crisis and the data behind it all. Click here to watch.

Biden’s Border Crisis: The Saga Continues

Under the first full four years of the Biden administration, it’s possible he will allow more people in the country than live in Texas today. That’s right. One out of five could be here illegally by 2024.

Texas will stand tall and do everything it can to mitigate the border crisis. I was on America Reports to talk about it. Click here to watch the interview.

An Unprecedented Number of Illegal Immigrants

I also joined Doug McKelway on the Trinity Broadcasting Network last week to talk more about the situation at the border. You can watch the clip here.

Those Who Believe in God vs. Those Who Believe They ARE God

On AIr

I joined Tony Perkins on the air to discuss Biden’s plan to revoke the Title 42 border policy, and how the battle over abortion and the sexualization of children is really a battle between those who believe in God, and those who believe they are God. Click here to listen.

Nap Time for Otis and Raegan Faith


People love Otis, our family’s 125 lb Bernedoodle. He was pictured on our Christmas card last year. Today he joined our newest and 7th grandchild, Raegan Faith, for an afternoon nap. He’s her biggest protector!

He is Risen, Indeed!

He Is Risen

I hope you and your loved ones had a blessed Easter weekend. Praise God! He is risen, indeed!

May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.

188 years ago, Texan forces, led by General Sam Houston, achieved a decisive victory over Mexican troops in the Battle of San Jacinto. This battle marked a pivotal moment in Texas history, securing our independence from Mexico. Join me this San Jacinto Day in remembering the bravery and sacrifices of those who fought for freedom. God bless Texas!
