Mayorkas is LYING
Wednesday evening, I was on the Ingraham Angle with Laura. Her new showtime on FOX is 6 p.m. CT. We discussed the disaster at the border and lying Mayorkas and the Biden Administration. The White House is not doing its job, and Texas must step up to keep people safe and secure our border. Click here to watch the clip.
President Trump Knows the “Truth!”
President Trump gave a great shout-out to Texas’ historic property tax deal, the biggest property tax cut in Texas history. I agree…this is a BIG win for 5.7 million Texas homeowners! I greatly appreciate President Trump’s important support for helping get this bill passed.
Backing the Blue
I was honored to speak at an event with the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas earlier this week, where they presented me with their Leadership Award.
As I traveled through rural Texas last year during my bus tour, I was shocked to learn how little some of our elected sheriffs and their deputies were earning. There are elected sheriffs in Texas earning just over $30,000 per year, and their deputies earn less than that. It is difficult to find men and women to take these dangerous jobs at these pay levels. I knew something needed to change.
During the 88th Legislative Session, we passed an unprecedented bill to fund our sheriffs in our 236 rural counties, something that has never happened before. Senator Drew Springer, R-Muenster, carried Senate Bill 22, raising the minimum salary sheriffs can make to $75,000 and deputies to $45,000. This bill also provides funding for jailers, assistant district and county attorneys, and equipment. This is a huge accomplishment and the first time the state has funded our rural county sheriffs.
As Lt. Governor, I have consistently pledged my unwavering support to the brave Texans in law enforcement who put their lives on the line to protect our great state.
The Sheriffs’ Association of Texas plays a pivotal role in maintaining the safety and security of our communities, and I am proud to stand with them in their commitment to upholding the law and safeguarding the rights of every Texan.
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all the sheriffs, deputies, and ALL law enforcement personnel from big cities to the smallest towns for their dedicated service. I will always back the blue.
Thank you all for your support and everything you do to keep Texas red. May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
Lieutenant Governor of Texas
