Thanking Rep. Will Hurd

Will Hurd (R-Tex.) represents the 23rd District in Texas, which includes 820 miles of the Mexican border. And he is unequivocal that the real opportunity to enhance border security is by addressing the root causes of migration patterns: violence and lack of economic opportunity. As for a wall, Hurd says a barrier only makes sense where there is “urban-to-urban contact” (think El Paso-Ciudad Juarez). Otherwise, security would be better served by a fiber-optic cables that would support a sensor network but more importantly bring connectivity and economic opportunity to rural communities. Today, I wrote a letter thanking Rep. Hurd for his thoughtful approach to policy.
