Congressman Randy Weber (R) 14th, did not vote to establish a commission to look into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. He is a guest on this week’s Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall and says the commission set up will not favor fairness.
“We know it’s going to be very very partisan. Let the law enforcement do their job,” he said.
Don’t throw a couple of hundred million dollars at this. Let’s not let it be partisan and not about bashing President Trump. Weber talks about his vote against the Covid Hate Crimes Bill, the unity of the GOP and much more on Houston Newsmakers Sunday Morning and in the Houston Newsmakers EXTRA here.
Transgender Advocates fight against proposed Texas Legislation
Eighteen Transgender related bills have been signed into law in the United States so far this year with more being proposed in state legislatures across the country. Cathryn Oakley is Senior Counsel and State Legislative Director for Human Rights Campaign. She is a guest on this week’s Houston Newsmakers and says it is a familiar pattern.
“This is a part of a coordinated effort by opponents of LGBTQ equality to spread misinformation and to try to stoke fear, particularly in this case around Trans-Youth,” Oakley said.
She says those opposing transgender people now are the same ones who years ago opposed Gay Marriage.
“They just evolved over time as the arguments that they have made have continued to be disproven,” Oakley said.
Commemorating 200 years of the Texas Rangers
In 2023, the Texas Rangers will look back on 200 years as the top law enforcement agency in Texas. Russell Molina is the Chairman of the Texas Rangers 2023 which will be a year-long commemoration of the impact of the agency.
“They’re the longest-serving law enforcement group in the country, Molina said.
“And really when you think of Texas a lot of who we are and what we are is because of what they did back in the 1800′s,” he said
Get an early look at what will be a state-wide celebration.
