Congressman Williams invites President Obama to meet with Texas delegation to find a solution to the border crisis.Mr. President, you refuse to use your power to send these children back to reunite with their own families and use every available resource to fully seal our border. That is the end goal for the Texas delegation, and that is why I will not support your weak and irresponsible supplemental bill. On behalf of my Texas colleagues, I plead for your time. I would like to invite you to sit down with the Texas delegation so we can find a solution together. You carved out an entire afternoon to raise money in the Lone Star State while stubbornly refusing to visit the border, but I hope that the two miles between our House and the White House will not be a deterrent.
