While Texas works to Secure our Border, Sanctuary Cities like New York City makE the crisis worse by actively encouraging illegal immigration.
from Congressman Michael McCaul
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – It's no secret the Biden White House's failed, open-border policies have resulted in an unmitigated disaster at our southwest border – and our state continues facing the brunt of the crisis. While Texas is working overtime to secure our border, sanctuary cities like New York City are making the crisis worse by actively encouraging illegal immigration.
Texans shouldn’t have to shoulder the burden of costs incurred by cities that refuse to enforce our nation’s laws. Hardworking Americans deserve better than what this administration has allowed.

I am also proud that the provision I fought to include – which cuts the Secretary of State’s budget by 15% until he secures an agreement with Mexico that will reimplement the Remain in Mexico policy – passed this week in the State & Foreign Operations Appropriations bill.
Remain in Mexico was a proven, effective tool in deterring immigrants from illegally crossing our southern border and preventing their release into the interior of the United States, many times without the necessary tracking components, while their asylum claims were adjudicated.

One of the things that makes America a leader throughout the world is American culture. American movies and American music are celebrated in almost every country in the world, spreading American ideals and the English language.
This week I was proud to celebrate the implementation of my PEACE Through Music Diplomacy Act. This bill leverages the power of American musicians and American music — the universal language — to advance American foreign policy goals like democracy and freedom.
This was a wonderful week for the United States-Israel relationship, as Israel was accepted into the United States Visa Waiver Program.
Designating Israel into the Visa Waiver Program will make it much easier for Israelis to visit the United States and further strengthen the people-to-people ties between our countries. I look forward to welcoming many Israelis to the United States. Texas is ready to greet you!
