Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) released the following statement following President Trump’s State of the Union Address to Congress:

“Tonight, in his State of the Union speech, President Trump addressed the nation and laid out an agenda for the American people,” said Congressman Cuellar. “I am hopeful that the framework presented by the President will guide the country towards economic growth and prosperity.

Over the past year, I have worked with the Administration on a number of emerging issues that directly affect the people and families in my district. And although there have been times where I have adamantly disagreed with the President’s policies regarding immigration, border security, transportation and trade, I am confident that both sides of the aisle will proactively work together in a bipartisan way towards solutions that are good for Texas and the country.”

Congressman Cuellar continued, “I look forward to creating more opportunities for all Americans, and will work with the President, Democrats and Republicans in ensuring that we fight for the middle class and do what’s ultimately best for the citizens of this country.”
