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.

Rep. Cuellar Helps Small Businesses Find Temporary Workers
Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar announced the passage of bipartisan measures to help American employers hire enough temporary guest workers to keep their businesses going. The measures were part of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, a bill to fund the federal government for the remainder of the 2017 fiscal year, which passed earlier this month. In his role on the Homeland Security subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee, he co-sponsored a bipartisan amendment with Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) to allow the Secretary of Homeland Security to create exemptions to the 66,000 cap on H-2B visas for foreign people temporarily entering the United States to work. “I co-sponsored this legislation because I listened to the needs of American small businesses,” explained Congressman Cuellar. “The cap of 66,000 H-2B visas is arbitrary; it does not always reflect our labor needs. Workers who use this program are not trying to immigrate, but simply to work hard. They pay into our tax system and
