CONGRESSMAN TED POE HOSTS TOWN HALL MEETINGS

Atascocita and Crosby Residents Concerned about Border Security

HUMBLE, TX Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) hosted two informational town hall meetings this weekend for residents from the Atascocita and Crosby-Huffman areas.

Before a packed house, Congressman Poe addressed various issues and legislative items before the United States Congress, such as the War on Terror, economy/taxes, and victims rights. However, the most asked questions pertained to illegal immigration and border security. Congressman Poe highlighted legislation that he has sponsored and cosponsored to address border security and pledged not to support any bill that offered amnesty to people living in our country illegally. Additional concerns centered on the cases of former Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean and Edwards County Deputy Sheriff Gilmer Hernandez. Congressman Poe has been an outspoken advocate on behalf of Gilmer Hernandez and Border Agents Ramos and Compean and has requested a presidential pardon for all three law enforcement officers.

Congressman Poe will be holding additional Town Hall meetings in the 2nd Congressional District throughout the year.
