While President Joe Biden was exiting the stage from delivering his first address to Congress on Wednesday night, a Houston-area congressman stopped him for a quick exchange.
Newly-elected congressman Sheriff Troy Nehls, the former sheriff of Fort Bend County, offered to help the president with criminal justice reform during a short exchange.
Congressman Nehls touted that he led the sheriff’s office in one of the most diverse counties in the United States.
“I’m a sheriff from Texas, the most diverse county in the entire country, Fort Bend County, and I want to help with the criminal justice reform. I want to be a part of it. It’s needed,” Nehls could be heard saying to the president.
Biden responded by saying he would “reach out” to the sheriff.
