At the request of U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, officials from Montgomery County, the city of Conroe and state legislators were given a tour of the Southwest Key facility in Conroe to get a firsthand look at how the local shelter is handling unaccompanied minors who have illegally crossed the border.
They toured the facility and participated in a question and answer session with Southwest Key’s Regional Director and Program manager and field specialists from the U.S. Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Congressman Brady said, “Texas can’t secure the border alone. If the President and the Democratic Senate won’t act, Republicans in the House will.” He said, “We will fund the National Guard to help the border patrol secure the U.S. border and give border officials full access to federal lands along the border to address this unprecedented crisis.”
Brady also said, “This week we intend to pass legislation that secures the border, deters future dangerous journeys for children from Central America and reunites children with their families back home.”
