Henry Cuellar respects Perry, but won’t endorse him


Rep. Henry Cuellar, who crossed party lines in 2000 to endorse Republican George W. Bush, stopped just short of calling that endorsement a mistake. In an interview, he also made clear he would notendorse his friend Rick Perry in this year’s presidential race. Cuellar remains loyal to the Texas governor, who appointed the Laredo Democrat to serve as Texas secretary of state before he won his seat in Congress. But the past experience of crossing party lines and the resulting political fallout would prevent him from doing it again. “I’m just a big believer in ...

Rep. Cuellar Sends Letter to ICE Demanding Notification Be Given to Local Communities on the Release of Immigrants in South Texas
Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) today sent a letter to the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Sarah R. Saldaña, seeking answers about the release of hundreds of asylum-seeking immigrants from family detention centers in South Texas, without notifying local communities. “Hundreds of asylum-seeking immigrants, mostly women and children from Central America, are being released from family detention centers in South Texas, where they are free to go with relatives or sponsors while they await their asylum hearing before an immigration judge. “In many instances, local governments and non-governmental organizations are left with the burden of having to provide shelter and resources to those who are released in the United States. “In my letter, I have asked Director Saldaña what policy ICE has to provide advance notice and coordination between ICE and local governments when releasing immigrants from detention. I have also asked what steps ICE takes to en

Rep. Cuellar Issues Statement Regarding Release of Undocumented Central American Immigrants in Laredo
Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) has issued the following statement regarding the release of Central American immigrants in Laredo by the Department of Homeland Security with a Notice to Appear before an immigration judge. Central American immigrants are released at a bus station in downtown Laredo Thursday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).   “The Department of Homeland Security is releasing immigrants, mostly from Central America, in the Laredo area where they are free to go with relatives or sponsor organizations while they are given a Notice to Appear for an asylum hearing before an immigration judge on a certain date.
