Each year, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 through October 15 in order to reflect on the tremendous historical and cultural contributions that Hispanics have made in our communities. There is no place that this rich history is more evident than right here in the 23rd Congressional District of Texas.

Hurricane Harvey left many fellow Texans with their lives in danger and homes destroyed. Two weeks after the unprecedented flooding, folks in many areas of the state still have multiple feet of water inside their living rooms. Schools are closed. Families are displaced. Businesses are only beginning to reopen their doors.

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.

My title is Representative, and I have the honor of representing the 23rd Congressional District of Texas. During my first term in office in 2015 and 2016, I hosted over 400 public meetings, called over 630,000 households for live telephone town hall meetings, responded to over 50,000 constituent letters, and put over 75,000 miles on my car crisscrossing the district.

Celebrating the Fourth of July often means good food, outdoor fun and eye-catching fireworks with friends and family. The anniversary of our nation’s founding should also cause reflection on the sacrifices made by so many patriots who have ensured the prosperity of our country and protected the values, ideals and people on which our Republic has been built.

When I was an undercover CIA officer, I served alongside real patriots. I got out of bed each day knowing that my colleagues and I were standing tall against those trying to harm America. For almost a decade, I was the guy in the back alleys at four o’clock in the morning chasing terrorists in groups like al-Qaeda, and collecting intelligence on threats to our homeland.

With Fort Bliss to the West, Joint Base San Antonio to the East and Laughlin Air Force Base in between, the 23rd Congressional District of Texas has a very special relationship with our nation’s military.

As a conservative, I am always looking for ways to reform government spending and use tax dollars more efficiently. With a background in computer science and through my time as Chair of the House IT Subcommittee, I’ve been able to identify federal information technology (IT) as an area in desperate need of reform.

The privilege of representing the 23rd Congressional District of Texas is something I do not take lightly, and I work hard each day to ensure that my votes in Washington reflect the views and best interests of my constituents. I represent more than 800 miles of U.S.-Mexico border, more than any other Member of Congress.
