As a mother of four, I want to raise my child in a community safe from crimes and natural disasters. Texas needs to step in where the federal government has failed to secure our borders from the entry of violent criminals. We need to support our first-responders who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. And we need to make sure we have the infrastructure we need to prevent—and recover from—flooding and hurricanes. One of our hardest-hit areas in this district is one of the largest Jewish communities in the United States, and we’ve been too slow to revitalize flooded synagogues and get people back into their homes.
