Rep. Pete Sessions, a Texas Republican, served in the House for 22 years before being defeated for reelection by Rep. Colin Allred (D) in the 2018 midterm election that shifted the House blue.
At the end of last year, Sessions announced that he would be running again for Texas’ 17th congressional district, looking to make it red again as President Trump also looks to become reelected in a contentious election season.
Seeing that President Trump has doubled down on continue to enforce strict immigration laws to ensure the country’s safety, President Trump recently announced that he would be putting tactical law-enforcement teams in Texas to enforce immigration laws in the highly controversial Sanctuary Cities.
In response to the President’s intention to do this, Rep. Sessions voiced his support for the measure, arguing that President Trump has worked tirelessly in making sure that illegal immigration is curbed and that criminals are not allowed to come into the country.
In a statement, Sessions argued that “for America to gain an upper hand on Drug Cartels in America, our government must have a will to win on our own soil today!”
“Thank you, President Trump,” Sessions added, “for your strong resolve to save our children.”
