GET THE FACTS ON DAVID COVEY’S LIES

BORDER SECURITY

FACT:

Dade Phelan has done more on border security than any other Speaker in  history:  

• Since he was first elected, Dade has voted for approximately $12 billion in border security funding.  

• Last year, he led the House in passing $6.5 billion for border security and building the wall—more money than ever appropriated in a single Legislature.

• Dade stood up to the Biden Administration by passing a bill to criminalize the  unlawful entry of migrants into the State and send them back to the port of entry  they came from, legislation that is currently being fought in the court system by the Biden Administration.

HB 20 was a priority of the Speaker’s, as evidenced by the low bill number that was assigned. Its chief objective was to repel and arrest migrants from illegally crossing into the state. This objective is now the law in the State of Texas, largely due to the leadership of Dade Phelan.

It is misleading at best to suggest Dade Phelan is anything other than the strongest Speaker in Texas history when it comes to Border Security and protecting our citizens.
