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 Supports Hyperloop for Texas
Congressman Henry Cuellar welcomed the news that a Texas route including Laredo and San Antonio is under consideration for an ultra-high-speed transportation project called a Hyperloop. The route would connect Laredo to San Antonio, Houston, Austin, and Dallas. Hyperloop One, a company founded by Tesla visionary Elon Musk, is preparing to build a system for moving passengers and freight across long distances at hundreds of miles per hour, in above-ground tubes. Eleven groups from around the country submitted competing proposals for where the first route should go when the technology is available. Hyperloop One selected the Texas proposal, developed by a Dallas-based team from the company AECOM, for the top five. "I am encouraged by the selection of the Texas proposal as a finalist in the Hyperloop contest," said Congressman Cuellar. "Being an early adopter of this new technology would show the world that we are a growing, innovative state with a 21st-century economy. It would attra
Rep. Cuellar Meets with MX Legislators Rep. Guerra and Rep. Oropeza
Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) hosted Congressman Braulio Guerra and Congresswoman Nora Liliana Oropeza of Mexico for a meeting to discuss U.S.-Mexico relations and border issues. Congressman Guerra is well-known for climbing over the fence dividing the Tijuana, Mexico from San Diego, California in March 2017, to call attention to the limitations of that type of border security measure. Congressman Cuellar has been a vocal critic of President Trump’s proposal to build a wall or fence along the border. As a member of the Homeland Security subcommittee of Appropriations, he has fought for more efficient and effective methods of border security, including surveillance technology and ground personnel.      Congressman Cuellar frequently meets with Mexican officials to discuss matters of mutual interest, including security, international trade, and shared environmenta

Rep Cuellar Statement on Airstrikes in Syria
Following the U.S. airstrikes in Syria in response to Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons attack on his own people, Defense Appropriations member Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) wrote: “Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians is an absolute atrocity. Like all Americans, I was horrified by the images of innocent children among the victims. The United States has a responsibility to condemn these actions in the strongest terms, and to hold the perpetrators responsible within the scope of international law. President Trump's decision to attack an airfield held by Assad's forces, in a major reversal from his previous positions, appears to be a proportional response within that framework. If he plans to escalate our military involvement, however, he must come to Congress for a specific Authorization for Use of Military Force. Our troops and their families deserve an open debate and clear objectives before we put them in harm's way. Unfortunately, this chemical
