Ahora que el presidente Trump ha dejado la suerte de los ‘dreamers’ en manos del Congreso, representantes federales texanos afirman estar dispuestos a apoyar la legalización de estos jóvenes indocumentados.

Ya en el 2010, con un Congreso de mayoría demócrata, un proyecto de ley conocido como Dream Act, que ofrecía la legalización de indocumentados traídos al país antes de los 16 años, fracasó en el Senado.

More than 150 people chanted in protest outside the John H. Wood Federal Courthouse Tuesday afternoon following the Trump administration’s formal announcement to end DACA, a program that granted two-year, renewable work permits to more than 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children and protected them from deportation.

Mayor Dee Margo:
As I’ve said from day one, immigration is something that needs to be dealt with and it needs to be dealt with in Washington. Those kids who came here as children, they shouldn’t be penalized. We educated them, it’s part of the process. But we are dealing with the wrong end of the toothpaste tube. Where the pressure should be applied to Washington D.C. to get their act together and to do something about immigration all across the board.

When Congress returns this week from summer recess, legislative measures on cybersecurity have a chance to move. Yet, responding to Hurricane Harvey will be job one for lawmakers, along with several pressing budget matters.

September 5, 2017 In The News

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump turned over the fate of nearly 800,000 so-called Dreamers to a Congress plagued by dysfunction and a staggering must-do list complicated by the sudden need to craft a Texas relief package in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Trump admonished Congress via Twitter to “do your job,” even though the GOP-run body largely has failed since he took office, even when tackling matters on which most conservatives agree — such as replacing the Affordable Care Act.

If Congressman Will Hurd isn’t in Washington, D.C., he’s likely on the road. The San Antonio native who was elected in a tight race in 2014 serves a district that includes 29 counties, two time zones and over 800 miles of borderland. While that means the issues his constituents most care about can vary from cybersecurity to telemedicine to cattle health, he says everyone is concerned about core problems like national security and trade between Mexico and the U.S.

August 28, 2017 Hurd on the Hill

This month, my staff and I did our annual DC2DQ road-trip, hosting twenty public town hall meetings in seven days across Texas – mostly at local Dairy Queens.  When I first ran for Congress, folks told me that they never saw their Representative. I promised them that they would never be able to say that about me. Regardless of if you agree with me or not, I will continue to show up in your community, tell you what I have done and why I did it.
