Happy Easter

As Americans continue to battle through the COVID-19 pandemic and bear witness to the growing crisis on our southern border, the significance and great victory that Easter symbolizes remains clear. Years ago, after laying down his life for all of our sins, Jesus rose on the third day – conquering death and guaranteeing everlasting life to all who believe in him.

On this Easter Sunday, may we never forget God’s eternal love and the undeserved sacrifice He bestowed upon us. Today, let us also remember the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who are serving in faraway lands to keep us free and safe.

May the grace of the Lord forever surround you and your family. I pray you have a safe and blessed Easter.
Witnessing Biden's Border Crisis from Ground Zero
This week, I witnessed Biden's Border Crisis from ground zero.

This specific facility’s capacity is 250 people... it’s currently holding 5,700 unaccompanied minors!

This humanitarian disaster is 100% Biden’s fault.
This Border Crisis Is Like No Other
This border crisis is like no other.

The Left continues to lie to the American people, but we’re here to tell the TRUTH!

Don’t allow them to keep you in the dark.

Thanks to Fox & Friends for having me on this week!

Touring CBP's Laredo Field Office
With Randy Howe, Director of Field Operations for CBP’s Laredo Field Office – he and his team process more commercial trucks than anyone else in the U.S.

Hidden inside many of these trucks and trailers are thousands of pounds of deadly drugs from the cartels – look at the stacks of marijuana behind us!
We should ALL be grateful for their life-saving work.
There Is Nothing Humane About Open Border Policies
There's NOTHING humane about open border policies.

In fact, they’re vile and inhumane.

If Democrats truly cared about the well-being of migrants, they’d be 100% against Biden’s reckless agenda.

Drug Cartels Are Having a Field Day
Cartels are having a field day because of Biden’s failure on the southern border.

Agents on the ground recently seized 8 million doses of fentanyl – FYI, consuming as little as .25mg can kill you.

A big thanks to the DEA for the update and for all of the work they do to protect us.

 Joining Mornings with Maria on Fox Business
Having strong and reliable infrastructure is vital to our economic success.

However, after reading more about Biden's $2 trillion American Jobs Plan, an old proverb comes to mind: "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.” I joined Mornings with Maria to discuss this, the border crisis, and more!

Democrats Disregard One of Congress' Most Sacred Duties
 One of Congress’ most sacred duties is safeguarding the treasury.

Sadly, the Democrats don’t care. They spend YOUR tax dollars like it grows on trees!

They have no problem bankrupting our country if it helps them push their Green New Deal, socialistic agenda.

The Biden Administration Continues to Lie to the American People
The Biden Administration is LYING when they say that our borders are closed and that they’ve got this crisis under control.

President Biden and his Democrats have created an absolute catastrophe and refuse to own up to it.

Thanks to One America News (OAN) for having me on to discuss – watch below.

Touring the Rio Grande with the Texas Department of Public Safety 
I joined the Texas Department of Public Safety on a night tour of the McAllen section of the Rio Grande separating the U.S. and Mexico. These brave officers stay alert around-the-clock protecting Americans from the many deadly activities that happen on the river.
I’m grateful for their service!
Visiting the Migrant Holding Facilities in Donna, Texas
I filmed the following video in Donna, TX, on Monday after touring the migrant holding facilities. Watch the video below to hear my thoughts!

Babin and Arrington Update America from the Southern Border
Congressman Jodey Arrington (TX-19) and I talked to Rob Schmitt with Newsmax TV from the southern border on Tuesday to discuss what we were seeing on the ground. Take a moment to watch!

Texas National Guard Troops Work to Fill the Gaps
 Our Texas National Guard troops are working hard to fill the gaps and aid CBP in maintaining our nation’s security and sovereignty.

We appreciate their relentless efforts to keep us safe!
The Consequences of Defunding the Police
You didn’t need to be a genius to predict that defunding the police would lead to a major rise in violence and crimes.

Instead of bending to the “woke” radical Left, Democratic leaders should find real solutions for protecting their citizens!

Taking an Aerial Tour of the Border with the U.S. Coast Guard
The U.S. Coast Guard plays a vital role in intercepting deadly drugs coming from the cartels before they make it across our shores.

My Texas colleagues and I took an aerial tour of the border line between McAllen, a hotspot for drug smuggling, and Mexico.
Let That Sink In
 "Biden’s tax hike to 28%, in addition to state taxes, would drag the U.S. back to having the highest combined corporate tax rate in the developed world, 9 percentage points higher than the average of developed nations."

Let that sink in.

Addressing the Release of Untested/Unvetted Illegal Aliens into the U.S.
Democrats fight tooth and nail to keep us locked down yet have no problem releasing COVID-19 positive illegal aliens all over the U.S.

In fact, unless they're symptomatic, the majority of the migrants apprehended go untested.

Do you see the hypocrisy?

To watch interview, please click here.
CBP Deserves Our Support
Grateful to have had National Border Patrol Council President, Brandon Judd, with us on the border this week. He is a truth teller and fights every single day for border security.

Our courageous border patrol agents deserve every ounce of support that we can give them.
Illegal Alien Entries Could Reach More Than 1 Million 
At this rate, CBP's expecting more than 1 million migrants to enter the country illegally by year's end.

If the White House worked as hard to solve this border crisis as they do to hide it we wouldn't be wondering if this catastrophe has an end or not.

To watch my interview, please click here.
Checking Out Illicit Entry Points Along the Border 
I joined the DEA by helicopter to check out illicit entry points and the vulnerable areas where Biden stopped border wall construction.

Thank God we had a president who took the southern border seriously. Now, we have the Biden Border Crisis. 
 Communist China and Iran Are No Friends of Ours
  As if we needed another reason to keep an eye on these two volatile and untrustworthy nations.

Communist China and Iran are no friends of ours. Biden would do well to remember that.
