The federal government has shamefully failed to uphold its responsibility to secure the border and stop the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants into Texas. As the next U.S. Senator from Texas, David Dewhurst will work with law enforcement to secure our border and triple the size of the Border Patrol in order to keep Americans safe.
David passed legislation increasing funding for border security by $400 million
David committed funds to strategic regions, resulting in a drastic reduction of all crime in our border communities
David passed legislation creating tougher criminal penalties for human traffickers
David passed legislation cracking down on businesses fronts for human trafficking that victimize children and those seeking a better life in America
