More on Immigration
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin) took to the House floor Wednesday to deliver a speech on the importance of securing our nation’s southern border.
Williams’ remarks are below:
“Madam Speaker, I rise today to call attention to the crisis on our southern border. I stand with the President and my colleagues in the House and Senate in their calls for securing our southern border.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin) joined Fox Business’ Mornings with Maria to discuss the government shutdown, the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, and changes to the House Financial Services Committee, that he serves on, in the 116th Congress.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin) joined Fox Business’ Trish Regan Primetime to discuss the government shutdown, the President's trip to McAllen, Texas, and the humanitarian crisis at the southern border.
I hope all of you in Texas' 25th District had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and loved ones. For those of you with family members in the Armed Forces who were unable to be together this year, please know that we are all grateful for their service, and will continue to pray for their safety.
Crisis at the Border
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin) joined Fox Business' Mornings with Maria to discuss border security, the economy, and what to expect from Congress during the remainder of the 115th Congress.
Border security must be the top priority during the final months of the 115th Congress. The pervasiveness of illegal border crossings is one of the greatest threats to the safety and security of Texans. For that reason, I will continue to work with President Trump and my House colleagues to secure the border and enforce the rule of law.
Williams said that while he’s proud to serve all of Congressional District 25 he’s most proud of serving Fort Hood, or as he calls it, 342 square miles of “Bring It On.”
Military cuts under former President Obama’s administration left the military largely gutted, Williams said, resulting in drastic reductions in troop numbers as well as available tanks and planes.
“At the current rate we’re going, by Christmas, we’re going to have a fleet of Naval vessels the same size as we had in 1917,” Williams said.
