Every single border member of congress — myself included — opposes the wall. Every. Single. One.

Addressing wage theft is a critical public policy problem that disproportionately affects Texas’ low wage & high risk workforce - it is most common in sectors like agriculture, construction & child care services

Federal appeals court ruled against Planned Parenthood last night in challenge over Texas trying to kick the provider out of Medicaid. Sends case back to district court that had blocked the move, to apply a new legal standard.

"'They’ll actually walk up to the border wall, where there are gates,' said Jodi Goodwin, an immigration attorney in Harlingen, Tex. 'They know those gates have cameras. So they’ll just wave at the cameras to notify the Border Patrol.'"

"A federal attorney in South Texas said in court this week that during the ongoing partial government shutdown, he only has been allowed to work on cases related to President Donald Trump's proposed border wall."

NEW: GAO report finds a stark difference in how the State Dept, DOD and USAID are factoring the impact of climate change on migration patterns. TLDR, Trump admin rolled back guidance to incorporate climate change into the agencies' operations.

Yesterday's forum brought the voices of the border directly to Congress, and we were privileged to hear how Trump's vanity wall will negatively impact their communities, the environments, and their local economies. Thank you for sharing your stories.

this whole "on background" thing from government agents is out of control. why does a Customs and Border Protection official, who called a press briefing, need anonymity in order to express that the wall is good? makes no sense.

It's probably wishful thinking to believe the government shutdown will significantly delay construction of the wall in South Texas. The Army Corps can handle contracting and oversight of design development and stuff. In fact, that's their job to begin with.
