Urging Congress to reimburse the State of Texas for bearing the financial burden of the federal government's responsibility to secure the Texas-Mexico international border.
No fiscal note.
This Concurrent Resolution conveys the 84th Texas State Legislature’s dissatisfaction with the federal government's insufficient efforts to secure the border between Texas and Mexico.
Clearly the federal government is not fulfilling its Constitutional responsibility to secure the border, causing the state of Texas to step up to fill the void that the federal level has caused. The state of Texas should be reimbursed for the expenses that have accrued due to the federal government's dereliction of its Constitutional duties.
We support HCR 61 because it affirms our limited government principle and personal responsibility principle.
