Texas has added a boat blockade to secure the border from cartels who try to smuggle drugs & illegal immigrants across the Rio Grande River. This adds to Texas building a border wall & deploying 10,000 National Guard & Dept. of Public Safety officers.

80 years ago, America was attacked. Without hesitation, we responded and went on to win World War II. Today we remember those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor. And honor those who continue to defend our great nation.

Just this year, over 70 businesses & corporations have relocated their headquarters to Texas. That's a new HQ in Texas every five days. The Lone Star State is thriving because we are the land of economic opportunity & innovation.

The federal court in charge of Biden's vaccine mandate lawsuit DENIED Biden's request to reinstate the mandate while the lawsuit is pending. The vaccine mandate remains BANNED for now. The Biden Administration cannot compel you to get a vaccine.

Tonight, I joined members of Texas' Jewish community for the annual menorah lighting ceremony at the State Capitol. Hanukkah teaches us the power of hope, faith, & perseverance & serves as a testament to the strength & resilience of the Jewish people. #HappyHanukkah

Cecilia & I are saddened to hear of the passing of Bob Dole. Senator Dole was a WWII hero, a stalwart of the Republican Party, & above all a great man. We send our prayers to the Dole family at this time. Flags will be flown at half-staff in his honor. May he rest in peace.

Our hearts are with the loved ones of the @MesquitePD_TX officer who passed away this evening after being shot in the line of duty. This tragedy is a solemn reminder of the risks our officers take every day by putting their lives on the line to serve & protect our communities.

Today, student bands from around West Texas will come together to play in the Andrews Christmas Parade. They will honor the lives lost & the students involved in the horrible bus accident in Big Spring. This show of community is what Texas is all about.

Great to be in San Antonio for the roll-off of the new @Toyota Tundra—the latest in a long line of Toyota trucks built exclusively in Texas. Toyota's innovation & manufacturing mastery is testament to what businesses can achieve in the Lone Star State.

10,000 Texas National Guard & Texas Dept. of Public Safety personnel are deployed at the border to prevent a repeat of what happened in Del Rio. We will continue protecting our communities from the surge of illegal drugs & people crossing into Texas due to Biden's border crisis.

With the Remain in Mexico policy back in place, asylum-seekers will be sent from Texas border crossings to wait in Mexico. DHS will begin by sending back migrants from El Paso, Eagle Pass, Laredo & Brownsville. This results from legal action by Texas.
