Culberson’s Statement on Department of Justice Requiring Jurisdictions to Prove Compliance with U.S.C. § 1373
“I applaud Attorney General Sessions for moving rapidly and decisively to cut off federal law enforcement funding to sanctuary cities. Sanctuary cities have known since last summer that this day of reckoning was coming. One of my proudest accomplishments in Congress was using the power of the purse to quietly persuade the Obama Administration last July to notify every jurisdiction in America that sanctuary cities would no longer be eligible for federal law enforcement funding."
Supporting Our Greatest Ally
You will often see me wearing a very special lapel pin. It is a pin with the flag of Texas beside the flag of our nation’s greatest ally, Israel - or as I like to call them, the two Lone Star States. Both states have shown strength in adversity, and an overwhelming connection to their heritage and history. I am proud that Texas is a fierce friend of Israel, and I will always stand with Israel in solidarity.
Culberson's Statement on Missle Strikes in Syria
“The Assad regime used chemical weapons in a barbaric attack on innocent men, women and children and this cruel act cannot go unpunished. Swift decisive action like this missile strike will have a salutary effect on tyrants worldwide. As the leader of the free world, the United States cannot stand by and allow chemical weapons to be used against the Syrian people. I look forward to the Administration engaging with Congress on any ongoing efforts to combat atrocities in Syria.”
