Webelos Citizen Badge

On Wednesday afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting with young Cub and Boy Scouts from the 32nd Congressional District to discuss the importance of being active citizens and young leaders in the community. These young scouts met with me to earn their Citizens Badge in order to complete the requirements for their Webelos Badge. As a proud Eagle Scout, I always enjoy meeting with scouts, serving as a mentor throughout their scouting journey, and discussing the importance of service, character, and courage.   Read more »

Congress must stand against a deal with Iran

All eyes have been on the terrorist army Islamic State (IS) as it slaughters its way through the Middle East. IS is the most infamous villain on the world stage today, leaving Americans more fearful than ever about an attack on the homeland. With shocking headlines of beheadings and mass graves, it seems IS has stolen the spotlight from another world villain, the largest state sponsor of terrorism: Iran.   Read more »

Ebola Crisis At Home

I want to update you on what I have been doing regarding Ebola in America. I am grateful our prayers have been answered and the two brave nurses who treated the first Ebola patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital have been found to be Ebola free. Unfortunately, we have not solved the Ebola crisis yet.   Read more »

Senator Cornyn Invites VA Secretary to South Texas to Meet with Valley Veterans

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) today wrote to Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) Robert McDonald to invite him to visit the Rio Grande Valley to hear firsthand from South Texas veterans about the need for a full-service inpatient health care facility in the region:

I have introduced legislation to direct the VA Secretary to put a full-service inpatient health care facility in the South Texas VA Health Care Center in Harlingen, Texas. This bill would require the VA Secretary to include in the VA’s annual Strategic Capital Investment Planning process the resources necessary to expand the existing facility to provide

We Stand in Solidarity with Israel and Canada

The attacks in Ottawa and Jerusalem yesterday are stark reminders that while radical Islamic terrorism may have originated in the Middle East, it is not confined to that region. Our great and good friends in Canada and Israel were targeted because both countries share the same core principles of tolerance and freedom that we in America hold so dear—and which are hated by the vicious terrorists whose ultimate goal is to destroy us all.   Read more »

How poaching fuels terrorism funding

Half a million dollars. That's how much it cost Osama bin Laden and his band of extremists to carry out the most deadly attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor.

Fast forward 13 years, and bin Laden may be dead, but the threat from Islamic extremists has never been greater. But weapons, surveillance equipment, training, food, lodging and travel all cost money. That suggests that if we want to fight terrorism, then there's one important thing we need to do: Follow the money trail.   Read more »

Breitbart Exclusive Interview: Sen. Cruz Talks Assault on Religious Liberty and Ebola Travel Ban

Senator Ted Cruz said the City of Houston and Mayor Annise Parker have “no legal authority, no constitutional authority and no moral authority” to issue subpoenas to pastors for their sermons and personal communications. The exclusive interview below came shortly after the Senator gathered with some of the top religious leaders in Houston to speak out against this unprecedented attack on religious liberty. During the interview, Cruz also reinforced his “common sense” call for a travel ban on people traveling from countries with an active outbreak of the Ebola virus.   Read more »

Support for Travel Ban to Protect American Lives

This recent outbreak of Ebola has been heartbreaking. There’s no question about that. It’s infected more than 8,800 patients, and taken more than 4,400 lives in West Africa. Here in Texas, we’ve seen firsthand how quickly the virus spreads and how devastating it can be.

The Obama Administration has been frustratingly slow to respond. What we need is immediate action and real leadership, to stop Ebola’s global impact, and to eliminate the threat here in America.   Read more »
