ON THE ISSUES
Standing with President Trump
President Trump has delivered on his promises like no president in history. He promised conservative justices and we now have Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. He promised to secure the border and thousands of new miles of border wall are under construction. He promised a record economy and we're experiencing records in unemployment for every demographic. He promised to drain the swamp and the deep state has launched witch hunts to stop him. The President needs allies in Congress with experience putting government officials in their place and standing up to special interests. That's what I've done for eight years as Sheriff and what I'll continue to do in the swamp. I'll stand with President Trump to build the wall, deliver his America First agenda, drain the swamp, and Keep America Great!
The federal government has failed its constitutional obligation to secure our borders. As Sheriff of Fort Bend County, I've dealt firsthand with the problems caused by our open southern border, locking up over 2,500 criminal aliens and working with ICE to process them for deportation, but criminal illegals who have been deported time and time again keep making it back into our country and committing crime. We spend billions every year subsidizing the cost of illegal alien's healthcare and education. It's time the federal government puts the American people first, builds the wall, ends sanctuary cities, and deports criminal aliens. As your next Congressman, I'll use my over 25 years law enforcement experience, eight years as Sheriff of Ft. Bend County, and 21 years of service in the US Army reserve to lead on this issue. I'll fight to secure the border, finish President Trump's wall, deport criminal aliens, and end sanctuary cities.
PROTECT 2ND AMENDMENT
Our constitutional right to keep and bear arms is one of our most foundational freedoms. Not only does it give Americans the right to protect their family and loved ones from harm but it's also a deterrent to tyrannical government. I'm 100% pro-2A, endorsed by NRA board members, and as Sheriff famously told looters to stay out of Ft. Bend County because we believe in the 2nd Amendment and many of us are well armed, and they may leave in a body bag. In Congress, I will fight the gun grabbing socialists and always defend our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
The federal government continues to kick the can down the road on our national debt. We're now over $23 trillion in debt and growing everyday. Foreign governments own trillions of dollars of our debt. This is not only a fiscal crisis but a national security one as well. We're selling out our children's future. As the father of three daughters and your next Congressman, I will not tolerate the irresponsible and downright criminal negligence of Congress when it comes to spending. Enough with politics as usual. Enough with career politicians and the swamp putting special interests before the American people. We need to get our fiscal house in order by cutting spending and sticking to a zero based budget. I made aggressive cuts to the budget and streamlined processes as Sheriff. I'll do the same in Congress. Our kid's futures depend on it.
Psalm 139, verse 13-14: "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." All life is precious and a gift from our all mighty creator. It must be protected from conception to natural death. It is abhorrent that our country allows the murder of hundreds of thousands of babies each year. A life is a life regardless of its stage. In Congress, I will fight to defund Planned Parenthood, support conservative pro-life Justices to the Supreme Court, participate each year in the March for Life, and protect all life giving a voice for the voiceless.
