Of those, some 177,000 were classified as illegal aliens by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security....Texas is the only state that publishes convictions of illegal aliens for specific crimes.

    Ted Cruz is struggling to win over black voters according to a new poll, that despite that weakness shows the Republican senator with a healthy nine-point lead over Democrat Beto O'Rourke. Cruz is getting support from just three percent of likely black voters, but is winning 45 percent of likely Hispanic voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

    I watched the first scheduled debate between Senator Ted Cruz and his challenger, Rep. Beto O’Rourke Friday night. Held on the SMU campus in Dallas, the two moderators were Julie Fine of NBC-5 and Gromer Jeffers of the Dallas Morning News. Both NBC-5 and the Dallas Morning News were sponsors.I’ll get right to the most interesting point I heard. When Beto O’Rourke was asked if he did, in fact, flee the scene of the accident that occurred during his drunk driving accident, he said, no, he did not try to leave the scene of the accident. That answer, though,...

    The United States was to begin construction in Texas on Saturday of part of President Donald Trump's border wall designed to curb illegal immigration, which he calls a security threat. Running along four miles (six kilometers) of the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, the new section will replace existing fencing along the boundary between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. "This new wall will be far more durable and far more effective in deterring would-be illegal entrants," Aaron Hull, Chief Patrol Agent in the El Paso sector, said in the statement....

  • After Watching Debate New Nickname for "Beto" Sham O'Rourke

    After watching Ted Cruz wipe the floor with "Beto" O'Rouke during the debate, it was striking to me about how huge a fraud this guy "Beto" really is. First, he has the fake nickname to make him sound Latino. After watching him last night it was apparent that he has studied Barack Obama's speech patterns and was doing an imitation of him. He tried to say that he wanted to work with Republicans and the President after all of his extreme left votes in the house are right there for us all to see. He is a sham all the...

    Not sure if I'm posting this correctly, but we just got home from a Ted Cruz campaign townhall in Webster, Texas. Out daughter is an intern on the campaign and she is the one that suggested the location and organized it. I'm pretty proud of her. The event was organized on very short notice. The turnout was standing room only, with people parking blocks away. Senator Cruz had a strong message, and his stance is pretty common sense. O'Rourke is an open borders, sanctuary city, socialist, gun grabbing leftist that is as far left as you can get. His message...

    Donald Trump questioned his Christianity, insulted his wife's appearance, suggested his father was involved with President John F. Kennedy's assassination and nicknamed him Lyin' Ted. Ted Cruz called Trump a "sniveling coward," a "pathological liar" and "utterly amoral." It's all water under the bridge now, as Cruz fights to hold his Senate seat in deep-red Texas and the President struggles to keep a Republican majority in the Senate. Trump has volunteered himself, as well as two of his most high-profile surrogates -- his children, Don Jr. and Ivanka -- to appear alongside the Texas senator as his re-election race tightens....

    Two politicians not known for brevity will face off at 6 p.m on statewide television. When Republican incumbent U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and his Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke, face off in their first debate Friday, watch as two long-winded politicians struggle for brevity. This past weekend, a reporter asked Cruz a simple question about Hurricane Harvey. His answer lasted 3 minutes, 57 seconds—which is forever on television. O’Rourke recently used 3 minutes, 38 seconds to give his defense of National Football League players taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against blacks. The abridged version of...

Yes, he said this– in public– on video. During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) — running against Sen.

During a forensic interview with the Center with Child Protection on Aug. 27, the victim told counselors she met Wilson through the website, SugarDaddyMeet.com.

Police said the two exchanged cell phone numbers and continued their conversations using the Apple iMessage service on her...

    A Republican candidate won an upset victory Tuesday night in the runoff for a Texas state Senate seat that had been held by Democrats for more than a decade. Pete Flores (R), a conservative former leader of the state Parks and Wildlife Department’s law enforcement division, won a surprise victory over Democrat Pete Gallego. The runoff election was held following the resignation of the seat's previous holder, state Sen. Carlos Uresti (D), after Uresti was found guilty of charges related to defrauding investors in an oil services company and sentenced to prison. Uresti previously defeated Flores in 2016 by double...

    Voters elected political newcomer Pete Flores to the Texas Senate on Tuesday, flipping a Democratic district red for the first time in 139 years and further bolstering Republicans’ supermajority in the chamber ahead of the November elections.

Dan Patrick, and U.S. Sens John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. “We conservatives are conservative in the way we make approaches. The gun fight’s not over until the...

    Plans for Interstate 14 have been expanded, and the Texas Department of Transportation will have a say in how a portion of the project is executed. Rep. Brian Babin of Beaumont, who sits on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, recently submitted a bill that would extend I-14 to Mississippi and effectively would bring two brand new interstates to West Texas. Under the already-approved plan known as Ports to Forts, I-14’s western terminus would be at I-10 and U.S. Route 190, near Iraan. US 190 would be converted to I-14 to Brady, and the project would continue eastward. The Midland-Odessa...

    The Texas State Board of Education is planning to remove a curriculum requirement to teach high school students about Hillary Clinton’s role as the first woman nominated for president by a major political party, the Austin American-Statesman reported. Under other preliminary approvals, the social studies curriculum would no also longer require students to learn about 1964 Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater and Hellen Keller, a disability rights advocate who became the first deaf and blind person to graduate from college. The proposed removal of Clinton, Goldwater, and Keller sparked little discussion among board members on Friday. Several dozen people who...
