Randy Weber will not take a stand on anything of substance. Ask him how he comes down regarding illegal immigration. He's a political coward who goes with the flow to get re elected.

Mr Nanos, I agree with you on several things you post about various subjects, but you obviously, since you resort to childish name-calling you don't know how to google.

Weber Statement on Immigration Bills -
Washington, DC, June 29, 2017 | 0 comments
WASHINGTON D.C. – H.R. 3003, No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, and H.R. 3004, Kate’s Law, passed the House by votes of 228 to 195 and 257 to 167, respectively. This legislation mandates enforcement of laws already on the books, enhances penalties for deported felons who return, and reiterates the importance of public safety. Representative Randy Weber (R – Friendswood) released the following statement after the passage of these bills:
“Our citizens are dying, because we are not enforcing our laws. Today, the House of Representatives acted to change this. These two bills are rooted in common sense, and focus on criminal actions. The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act clarifies and upholds Immigration and Customs Enforcement authority, withholds certain federal grants if federal law is violated within a jurisdiction, and ensures repeat offenders are detained during their removal proceedings. Kate’s Law establishes that deported felons who return to the U.S. see enhanced penalties upon returning illegally.

Convicted illegal aliens have no business being on our streets. I am happy to support these bills, and encourage my colleagues in the Senate to quickly take these bipartisan measures under consideration.

That's nice. What about the rest of the illegals in the country? Where does he stand on the wall and expanded federal authority? He stood in a meeting and did the tango when confronted with these issues. He never would commit, but thanks for the lesson in "googling".

Pete, Pete, Pete. It appears you simply don't like Weber just like liberal Dumbacrats don't like President Trump. I get that. Apparently, you would not be satisfied even if Weber went to the border and stood guard himself. What I don't get is why you are so closed minded you don't dare use the www to get answers.
From google - U.S. Rep. Randy Weber has introduced legislation that would require the government to hire more border patrol agents and build "fencing" along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Weber, a Republican who's running for re-election, said Monday in a prepared statement that his bill would "effectively halt the flow of illegal aliens and combat the domestic criminality associated with our current lack of border security."

The Protect our Southwestern States Enforcement Act, or "POSSE Act," would direct the chief of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to hire more border patrol agents and officers and order construction of double-layer fencing along all 700 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border.

I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe some competition was enough to get him off his cushy seat.
