Often a voice of reason among members of his own party, Cisner isTexas No. 28 The statement from Ocasio Cortez, who supported her major challenge to Jessica Cisneros to represent the Parliamentary District, said it was "laughable" and pointed out the definition of a progressive textbook.
"Who sets the standard for becoming a true Democrat," he said. "Looking at what we are doing as a member of the House, we represent the district. She represents her district and I represent my district. It should be. "
" Ask her to look up the definition of progressive in the dictionary, "he continued. "Progressive means accepting new ideas. The only problem with some of these new progressives is that they shouldn't accept new ideas, they just accept their own ideas. The only criterion came up with the criterion "You have to agree with me, and if you don't agree with me you are a close enemy", which makes it very difficult to work. Increasingly Congress has set these artificial standards when we should see how we work together.

His own metrics and another used by some members of the Biden administration. Explaining the metrics, Querrer said many government officials said the United States was illegal.
"The metrics I use look at what the law is and enforce it," he said. "Under that, some people will stay in the current asylum law, because that's what the law says. If you have 100 people in front of an immigrant judge, that judge is probably only 10 to 12 percent. I wouldn't forgive. So my question, according to the immigration inspector, is why you allow 100% of people when you only allow 10-12%. That's the question. Some people believe in borders, others borders. Some people don't believe it. Some people believe it will abolish border security and ICE. I don't believe it. "

"Looking at what's happening at the borders, Laredo, and even the valley right now, 60% of border guards in my sector are doing or caring for immigrants.

Does not have the right skills at the checkpoint because some people do not have the right skills. " I want to put that type of technology or resource at the checkpoint.

"If they had the right skills, they would soon find people ... those border guards are trying to do their job, but it's very hard for them to do their job. It's difficult. "
