RPNC Chair Eric R. Meyers Responds to State of the Union

Corsicana Daily Sun February 8, 2019 I remain hopeful that the State of the Union Address will have a positive impact on both sides of the isle to secure a deal on border security.  The President’s address talked about the need to stop looking at issues as a Republican or a Democrat, but rather as a united front for the best interest of the United States of America.  Regardless, I strongly feel that we must strengthen our Southern Border for many reasons including curtailing the drug, money, and weapons flow from Cartels in Mexico, stopping the influx of “asylum” seeking […]
