We can't keep waiting on Washington, D.C. to do something about the issues along our Border. Texas must take a stand and protect itself against the influx of illegal immigrants who cross the Rio Grande and become burdens to our State. We must provide the resources to secure our border and stop incentivizing those who come to our country illegally. This can be accomplished by giving more control to local law enforcement officers along the border who know the situation on the ground and how to best secure Texas' border. We must also continue the fight to ensure that only Texans vote in our elections, and that all voters show photo IDs that validate their Texas residency. To me, this just makes common sense.
