Little Elm Journal: Congressman talks immigration, drilling at meetingMay 5th
By Emily Hill
U.S. Congressman Michael C. Burgess (R-26) hosted a town hall meeting April 28 at Lonestar High School in Frisco. Burgess answered questions put forth by area residents.
A Little Elm woman spoke to Burgess about illegal immigration issues facing America, noting the "birthing hotels," the amount of crime in "our backyards," and spending "millions of dollars" in keeping non-citizens healthy. She expressed disgust at officials "turning a blind eye to the crimes and illegal activities," along the border.
"What's your perspective on all that you see that happens in Washington when it gets away [from Texas]? Texas and the border states are ridiculed [...] taken advantage of. Enough is enough," she said.
Burgess replied that he agreed. He said that credibility in the White House is low.
"No one believes we can do what we need to do," Burgess said.
