Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: Response to President Trump's Address to the Nation
News Release
Wednesday, January 09, 2019

AUSTIN - Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued the following statement following President Donald J. Trump's prime time address to the nation this evening:

“President Trump is absolutely right that Congress must pass his common sense border security bill and end this very real crisis at our southern border. In Texas, illegal immigration costs state taxpayers billions of dollars every year in healthcare, education and law enforcement costs. In 2018 alone, over 500,000 illegal aliens were apprehended crossing the border illegally — 300,000 of those were in Texas.  

"Texans see first-hand the tragedies that take place at our border every day. No one should have to die trying to come to America. I was in Washington today working with the president’s team on his historic first address to the nation from the Oval Office and I am committed to doing everything I can to help the president end this crisis. I will be joining him in McAllen on Thursday for a briefing from those working directly on this problem."
