"Obviously we all watched Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer and they were petty, and political and partisan."

"They're just so dysfunctional about this President - no matter what he does, they're against it." 

"Democrats just can't say no, and walk away, and expect this problem to be solved."

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX-08) joined three Texas talk shows this week to discuss the crisis at the southern border:

On Wednesday evening, Brady joined Joe Pagliarulo on The Joe Pags Show, live on WOAI in San Antonio (segment starts at 20:56):
"Obviously we all watched Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer and they were petty, and political and partisan. I think the only thing that Senator Schumer got right is there is no excuse to keep the government shut down. He needs to sit down with this President, find common ground, secure the border, and reopen the government."

"They're just so dysfunctional about this President - no matter what he does, they're against it." 


Thursday morning, Brady spoke with Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer on KRTH in Houston:
"We are a welcoming country. We welcome legal immigration. We accept those who are truly fleeing persecution. We do that as a country. But this is about stopping the bad actors who also use that same border. They can argue about the numbers all they want, but we know in Texas how damaging this can be and that the border isn't secure."

"The President not only made a compelling case for this, but he's repeatedly said look, 'I am flexible in how we do this. If we want to allocate funding over several years, if you have a different approach - Democrats - to solving this problem, I'm open to that as well.' But they just seem dug in on zero money, not a dollar for the wall, period. Democrats just can't say no, and walk away, and expect this problem to be solved."

"We're right on this issue. The border is not secure. Everyone knows it and in the past Democrats knew it too and voted for funding, including fencing and barriers, more agents, in bigger numbers than what President Trump is requesting right now."


Brady also went on the Mark Davis Show on AM 660 The Answer in Dallas on Thursday morning
"[houston] is the number one hub for human sex trafficking in the U.S. 80,000 underage kids, boys and girls, are forced into prostitution. The meth, the heroin, the MS-13 gangs, which continue to murder with impunity - we see all that in real life in our communities. The national media can try to fact check all they want, but the facts on the ground are real people, innocent people, pay the price when that southern border isn't adequately patrolled."
