Today is the the third anniversary of the Trump insurrection. Republicans have been trying to whitewash and sanitize the horrific events of that day ever since.

We can’t let them get away with normalizing what happened. The then-president organized an assault on our democracy, and we can’t allow him to ever return to the White House.

Shame on Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, Ken Paxton and all other Republican “leaders” who continue to support Trump.

"I watched it on TV that day, and I said this is a complete joke."

Deeply saddened by the passing of Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. She was a steadfast advocate for north Texas and a trailblazer in Texas politics and the US House of Representatives. May she rest in peace.

Born in Waco in the segregated South, Johnson shattered barriers at nearly every stage of her political and professional career, paving the way for more women...

As the year comes to an end, I want to thank my two Capitol office interns who worked in our Austin office this Fall.

Andrew Paumen and Ben Lai are both current UT students ( ) who joined us this semester to assist in our Capitol office. Throughout two special sessions, one historic impeachment trial, and the fight against vouchers, they were essential in keeping our office running smoothly.

Thank you for all of your hard work & best wishes on your future endeavors!

As we celebrate the holiday season, hundreds of thousands of Texans continue to face long delays for the food & health care assistance they qualify for due to backlogs of Medicaid and SNAP paperwork. This backlog will result in families going hungry this holiday season & is putting the lives of Texans in harm’s way.

Earlier this month, I joined fellow members of Texas House Women's Health Caucus & Texas House Early Childhood Caucus urging the HHSC to take urgent and meaningful action to immediately address backlogs in SNAP and Medicaid. It is unconscionable that eligible Texans are being forced to wait months for assistance they quality for--and action must be taken now.

Huh?

When asked what Texas would do if Mexico does not accept migrants deported by the state, Abbott said…“We’re going to send them right back to Mexico.”

This the question I repeatedly asked the bill author. I got similar non-sensical responses.

This is a hateful and unconstitutional law.

Signing it Christmas week is especially repugnant.

The federal courts should strike it down swiftly.

The new law would authorize police to arrest people they suspect crossed the Rio Grande between ports of entry. Abbott also signed a bill earmarking more than $1 billion for more border barriers.

What a great day for Grand Prairie! This morning was the ribbon cutting for the Phase 1 of Tyre Park renovations/improvements. During the 87th Legislative Session I was able to secure $2 million for park improvements: dredging and revitalizing the pond, repairs and upgrades to the basketball court, pavilion, waking trial, restrooms and Tyre Pool. This funding from the Texas Parks & Wildlife helped jumpstart funding from our County and other partners who quickly saw the historical significance Tyre Park plays for the Dalworth community and the need for its revitalization.

Our public parks play a vital role in the very fabric of our communities. Tyre Park is home to Grand Prairie's annual Juneteenth Celebration, countless birthday parties, family reunions and play dates on a Sunday afternoon. Thank you to the Mayor, City Council and community members for their kind words this morning. I'm sorry I could not celebrate with you!

A special thanks to my friend and colleague, State Representative Armando Walle, for the crucial role he played in helping me secure this funding!

I was honored to welcome Vice President Kamala Harris & Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff to Texas for a community discussion moderated by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

It was great to hear about the work Vice President Harris & the Biden Administration have done to fight for Latino communities in Texas and across the country.

A highlight of my time in Austin this week was getting to see the ornament on the House Christmas tree!

This year's ornament was designed by Arlington ISD student Jenifer Muniz, who attends Lamar High School. Thank you for creating a beautiful ornament to represent District 101!
