A Failed State of the Union Address

The number one issue for my constituents — and millions of other Texans — is the southern border. President Biden's State of the Union address last night would have been a great opportunity for him to announce he'll start taking the crisis seriously by enforcing our nation's laws and returning to the policies that worked under the Trump administration.

Unsurprisingly, he did none of that, instead painting a falsely rosy picture — not only of our southern border, but also of the economy and his foreign policy accomplishments.

He also didn't mention Afghanistan — his biggest foreign policy blunder — even once. But I refuse to let his deadly and chaotic withdrawal be swept under the rug.

I was honored to bring Christy Shamblin as my guest to the State of the Union last night. Christy is the mother-in-law of Marine Sergeant Nicole Gee, one of the 13 servicemembers who was killed during the failed withdrawal. Her presence was a sobering reminder this administration must be held accountable.

I joined Harris Faulkner on Fox News this week to discuss Christy and her daughter-in-law's story.
