This terrorist attack is further proof of the inability of the federal government to properly screen refugees from terrorist-based nations. That's why I took action and Texas has officially withdrawn from refugee resettlement program. Texas will not be an accomplice to such dereliction of duty to the American people.
Texas ranks No. 1 for small business friendliness, and to help them even more, I will be asking the legislature to end runaway regulations – a hidden tax that disproportionately hurts small business job creation.
