We Must Back the Blue

We Must Back the Blue

Last year, I wrote an editorial “Too Many Funerals” as a response to the many law enforcement funerals I’ve attended as Lt. Governor. On Tuesday, I attended the funeral service for Constable Deputy Corporal Charles Galloway who was killed in an execution-style slaying by an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record.

Constable Ted Heap spoke on the heartbreaking loss of one of his men. He then delivered one of the most powerful speeches I have ever heard about criminals and those in office who support them. Watch it here.

The Harris County Commissioners Court has been steadily cutting the Constable’s budget and manpower. Last year, the Texas Senate passed SB 23 to put a halt to their cuts, but they are still trying to interfere with the Constables. His speech was clearly pointed at them. They were in attendance.

Texas MUST Secure the Border

Public safety is the government’s first responsibility and there is no greater threat to public safety in Texas right now than the failed, open-border policies of the Biden Administration. Texans have had enough of the border crisis and now, we’re taking matters into our own hands. Last week, I announced the creation of the Senate Committee on Border Security. The committee will oversee the funding and policies of Texas’ effort to secure our border and ensure we are maximizing that effort. I was on Fox & Friends with Lawrence Jones Monday morning to talk about it, which you can watch here.

Texas is Trump Country!

I had the exciting opportunity to speak at President Trump’s rally in Conroe over the weekend. This event was extra special to me because it took place in Montgomery County — the county I call home. If you weren’t able to tune in, you can watch my speech here.

The energy of the crowd was contagious, and we were quickly reminded of the stark contrast between Trump’s America and Biden’s America. President Trump expends more energy in one day than Joe Biden will spend in his 4-year term. I also got a small shout-out from the President himself…here’s the clip!

After my speech, I spoke with Newsmax about Texas being Trump Country, and the importance of fighting to take America back. Click here to watch my interview.
