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. Henry Cuellar Announces House Passage of Resolution to Name Zapata Post Office
Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) today announced the successful passage of H.R. 5591, a bill he authored to name the post office located at 810 North U.S. Highway 83 in Zapata, Texas, as the “Zapata Veterans Post Office.” Speaking today on the House Floor, Congressman Cuellar stressed the importance of naming this post office in honor of all veterans. Zapata is home to 503 veterans, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. “Across my district, there are many examples of fine men and women who have honorably served our country,” Congressman Cuellar said. “An example would be the six Treviño brothers of Zapata; World War II veterans who served their country bravely and honorably. The Treviño brothers, just like veterans all across our nation, share a wonderful love for country. We owe our freedoms to them, which is why I am recognizing them with the dedication of this post office.”  Teodoro, Leopoldo, Antonio, Anselmo, Filberto Jr., and Jose Manuel Treviño performed
Rep. Cuéllar: Es Más Segura la Frontera Que Washington Según Tasa de Crímenes del FBI
El día de hoy el congresista demócrata por el distrito 28 de Texas, Henry Cuéllar, publicó las nuevas tasas de criminalidad del Buró Federal de Investigación (FBI por sus siglas en ingles), las cuales demuestran una menor tasa de crimen violento como homicidio, violación, asalto agravado y robo, en ciudades estadounidenses en la frontera de Texas y México. Las nuevas tasas son de estadísticas del FBI de 2015. "Muchas veces la gente habla mal de la frontera de Texas", dijo el congresista Henry Cuéllar. "La gente que caracterizan a la frontera como un lugar violento con altas tasas de criminalidad nunca han visitado y nunca han vivido aquí. Las estadísticas oficiales de criminalidad del FBI, por otro año, demuestran que la frontera es un lugar más seguro que muchas ciudades de los Estados Unidos. Los crímenes violentos como asesinato y asalto con agravantes son mucho más altos en ciudades lejos de la frontera, incluso en la capital de nuestro país, que en la frontera d
Rep. Cuellar: Border is Safer than U.S. Capital According to FBI Crime Stats
Today Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) released the latest statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which show lower violent crime rates, including homicide, rape, aggravated assault and robbery, in cities along the Texas-Mexico border than in other major metropolitan areas across Texas and the United States. The data released by the FBI shows information gathered for 2015. “The border is often painted in an unfair light,” said Congressman Henry Cuellar. “The people who characterize the border as a violent and crime-ridden place often have never visited or lived here. The FBI’s official crime statistics, for yet another year, demonstrate that the border is home to some of the safest cities in the United States. Violent crimes like murder and aggravated assault are much higher even in our nation’s capital than on the Texas border. These unfounded stereotypes about the border have the potential to hurt business and we need to stop this misinformation about

Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) congratulated Andrew Trautmann Elementary School on being a recipient of the 2016 National Blue Ribbon School Award, as announced this week by U.S. Secretary of Education John B.
