The new Congress hit the ground running to show support for Israel in the wake of the United Nations anti-Israel resolution passed last December. We also passed legislation designed to roll back excessive government regulation- the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act.Read more

High noon for Sanctuary Cities
Early this year, U.S. Representative John Culberson, R-Texas, an Appropriations Committee subcommittee chairman responsible for funding the Department of Justice, got Lynch to officially designate the top 10 sanctuaries, including Chicago, New York and, the entire state of California, as noncompliant with federal law.
Culberson’s quiet, unpublicized victory makes sanctuaries immediately vulnerable to the loss of congressional money.
…Culberson said that if President Trump wants to, he could cut off funding to those cities and California the instant he’s sworn in at noon, Jan. 20, 2017.
A November Rasmussen poll found that 81 percent of probable voters favor mandatory deportation for aliens convicted of felonies.Read more

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- On Tuesday Donald Trump visited Texas to raise money in both Dallas and San Antonio. Eyewitness News decided to check with GOP leaders in the nation's largest Republican county and look at what impact, if any, the embattled nominee is having on the races that hit most closely to home.
"All of us are working arm in arm to elect Republicans to every office in Harris County," said west Houston Republican congressman, John Culberson."
TexasInsider.org, September 12, 2016 - Representative John Culberson led a Texas delegation letter to Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Whip Steve Scalise requesting disaster funding for Texas in any supplemental appropriations bill that is considered in the coming months.
“Many Texans have suffered after major flooding events have destroyed homes, businesses and lives. This letter requests funding so that Texans can rebuild and improve infrastructure to limit damage in future flooding events,” Rep. Culberson said. “After these major floods, I toured the hardest hit communities in District 7 and saw firsthand the destruction Houstonians have suffered. I’ve heard their heartbreaking stories and I want them, and all Texans, to know that their representatives are listening and we are working hard to help them rebuild their homes and businesses. I’m also working with state and local officials and the Army Corps to improve flood mitigation projects. Congress may consider an emergency supplemental appropriations bill this fall and the delegation wants to make sure that Texans aren’t forgotten when that time comes.”
“Justice sent Culberson a letter detailing the new rules that cut off several Justice grants, many to law enforcement, if cities like San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and over 300 others block access to criminal illegals sought by federal authorities.
It is a huge victory for Culberson, chairman of the Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee on Appropriations...”
Washington Examiner, 7/7/16
I am back in Washington this week with several key votes ahead on the National Defense Authorization Act. Over the past several weeks, I have spent much of my time on-the-ground with flood experts, survivors and first responders.
Armed with details about the flood control issues we face, I am working to secure targeted appropriations and key policy changes to help Harris County improve its drainage, retention and water infrastructure.
I recently visited with Houston Public Radio’s Houston Matters about how the private sector and public sector can each do more to prevent future flooding and improve drainage. As I told HPR:
The government has a responsibility to ensure that there are retention requirements in place, drainage requirements in place and that the dredging and improvement work are done downstream to ensure that water has a place to go.Read more
