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 to Host Lytle Student in Washington for Pres. Trump’s First Address to Congress
Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) will host eighth-grade student Rylan Wagner, 13, from Lytle Junior High School in Lytle, Texas, to see President Donald J. Trump’s first State of the Union Address during a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, February 28 at 8 p.m. CST at the House Chamber at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Rylan competed in a school-wide essay contest at Lytle Junior High School and was selected from his peers to attend President Trump’s address next week at our nation’s capital. “I believe that education is the great equalizer, which is why I work with schools in my district to provide our students with the resources and experiences needed to take them further in life,” said Congressman Cuellar. “On Tuesday, Rylan will be my guest during President Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress. He’ll be there with all our country’s leaders. The next day, my staff will guide him and his father on a tour of our nation’s capital to se
Rep Cuellar (D-TX) on Trump's immigration comments
In response to President Trump’s remarks at the joint session of Congress, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) said, “We do need to enforce our laws, and criminals should be deported. However, undocumented immigrants are not a major threat to our nation. The number of undocumented people in the U.S. has fallen in the last decade, and they are no more likely to commit crimes here than people with legal status. We should not waste law enforcement time and tear apart peaceful communities, deporting military families or DACA recipients. We need to practice common sense and common decency.”
Rep Cuellar (D-TX) on Trump's health care comments
In response to President Trump’s remarks at the joint session of Congress, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) said, “Health care must be affordable and accessible to all Americans. The Affordable Care Act has gotten us a long way toward that goal, and the disasters predicted by its opponents never materialized. My colleagues and I need to focus on fixing its problems, not stripping health care from millions of families.”
Rep Cuellar (D-TX) on Trump's border security comments
In response to President Trump’s remarks at the joint session of Congress, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) said, “I live on the border. I'm raising my family there. The President’s statements show he does not understand it. Despite rumors and exaggerations, our border communities are safe and thriving. Just ask business leaders. Merchants drive more than two million commercial trucks through Laredo’s ports each year, part of the billions of dollars in U.S.-Mexico trade that drive our economy. Or ask the FBI. Their crime statistics show border Texas cities are safer than the average American metropolitan area. A border fence is a 14th century solution to a 21st century challenge. Fulfilling the requests of border patrol commanders on the ground for technology and personnel would be far more effective. President Trump’s insistence on building a wall is more about looking tough than actually securing our homeland or supporting our law enforcement. Most of our southern b
