From kindergarten through college at Texas A&M, I’m a proud product of the Texas public education system. I was fortunate to attend schools with dedicated teachers and my parents took my education very seriously. But not every child is as lucky as I was.
Washington, D.C. - Congresman Will Hurd, the U.S. Representative for the 23rd District of Texas, released the following statement following his vote for the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act, encouraging President Barack Obama to sign the legislation into law:
A little more than six years ago an application for the project known as the Keystone XL Pipeline was filed with the U.S. government. A lot can happen in six years. We’ve seen amazing and useful inventions like the iPad hit the shelves. Google introduced the driverless car and a San Diego company invented what is essentially a 3-D printer for human organs.

Washington, D.C. - The U.S. House of Representatives today passed several strongly bipartisan bills focused on ending human trafficking. A roughly $10 billion industry in the United States, Texas trails only behind California with the highest number of reported human trafficking cases.
I firmly believe that if people in Washington are going to write the laws about securing our border, they should spend some time down here and talk to the men and women who risk their lives every day to protect our nation. That’s why I joined my fellow Texas Congressman Mike McCaul this weekend as he led a delegation of members of Congress on tours of our southwest border.

In The News
U.S. Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, offered some of the strongest criticism yet from a Republican to President Donald J. Trump’s executive order that would limit immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.
“A one-size-fits-all solution is not the way to solve one of the most complex national security challenges we face – Islamic terrorism,” Hurd said in a statement.

Constructing a giant, multi-billion-dollar wall across the U.S-Mexico border and ordering Mexico to pay for it was one of Donald Trump’s major campaign platforms. Earlier this week, the president formally ordered the wall’s construction.
Its proposed funding? A 20 percent tax on goods imported from Mexico.
A growing contingent of Republicans is openly questioning President Donald Trump's ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries, as key allies and powerful political players broke their silence Sunday to criticize Trump's executive order.
At the beginning of the week, before President Trump announced his border wall executive order and before his staff floated the idea of a 20 percent import tax on goods from Mexico, the Congressional Border Caucus held a bipartisan hearing titled “Border Business is America’s Business.”
President Donald Trump might not have triggered a trade war with Mexico yet, but the blame game is on in full force.
Business leaders, economists, and Republican officials agree that President Trump's proposal for a 20% tax on imports from Mexico to pay for that proposed border wall would lead to massive economic dislocation in Texas and potentially a 'Texas depression,' News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
President Trump’s claims that torture works and his suggestion that the United States might return to brutal interrogation techniques banned by law are generating criticism from Congress and intelligence experts.
President Donald Trump’s proposal Thursday to impose a 20 percent tax on goods imported from Mexico cast a chill over Texas and worried leaders from Monterrey to Calgary that the administration was starting a North American trade war that would increase the price of consumer goods.
Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) is criticizing President Trump's push to build a wall on the border with Mexico.
“Building a wall is the most expensive and least effective way to secure the border,” Hurd said in a statement late Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.
On the campaign trail, President Donald Trump talked often of his plans for a “big, beautiful wall” along the southern border. Trump supporter U.S. Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, went so far as to build a desktop model of an "impenetrable" concrete wall topped with concertina wire.
