Allred Lanza Anuncio Centrado en Soluciones Fronterizas, y en los Fracasos de Cruz en Abordar la Crisis en la Frontera

“Cuando había un buen plan respaldado por sheriffs y agentes fronterizos, Republicanos y Demócratas, Ted Cruz dijo que no necesitábamos un proyecto de ley fronterizo.”

DALLAS – El Congresista Colin Allred hoy lanzó un nuevo anuncio para la elección general, titulado “All Hat, No Cattle,” que se centra en el historial de Allred de impulsar soluciones bipartidistas en la frontera, y en la negativa de Ted Cruz a resolver la crisis y asegurar la frontera. El anuncio se transmitirá en los mercados de televisión de Houston, San Antonio, Harlingen-Brownsville-McAllen y Laredo a partir del martes 9 de julio. Una versión del anuncio llamado “Cuenta Con Colin” también se emitirá en los mercados de televisión de Harlingen-Brownsville-McAllen y Laredo y las dos versiones se transmitirán a nivel estatal en plataformas digitales.  

En el anuncio, Allred está acompañado por agentes de seguridad fronteriza que apoyan el enfoque orientado a soluciones de Allred. 

Ted Cruz votó en contra del paquete bipartidista para la frontera en febrero y declaró que se oponía debido a la política. Además, Cruz votó en contra de un paquete separado de financiamiento gubernamental que fue promulgado y que incluía millones en fondos para contratar un récord de 22,000 agentes de la Patrulla Fronteriza. Después de abogar en contra de estas soluciones, dijo: “no necesitamos un proyecto de ley fronterizo.”

Antecedentes adicionales:

La familia de Allred es de Brownsville, donde su abuelo trabajaba como oficial de aduanas. En el Congreso, Allred ha impulsado el reciente proyecto de ley bipartidista de seguridad fronteriza y se unió a un grupo de trabajo para impulsar su aprobación y otras reformas sensatas para arreglar el sistema de inmigratorio roto, incluyendo la Dignity Act que es bipartidista. Recientemente presentó un proyecto de ley que llama a evaluar las necesidades de personal para la Patrulla Fronteriza. También ha enfrentado a Biden por su manejo de la situación en la frontera.

Declaración del congresista Allred sobre la Orden Ejecutiva del presidente Biden que amplía los permisos de trabajo

Dallas – El congresista Colin Allred emitió hoy la declaración que se encuentra a continuación, luego de que el presidente Biden anunciara una Orden Ejecutiva que amplía los permisos de trabajo para algunas personas indocumentadas que son Dreamers o que han estado casadas con ciudadanos estadounidenses y han vivido dentro de los Estados Unidos durante un número específico de años. Más de 3 millones de personas en Texas viven en hogares con alguien que está indocumentado, ya sean cónyuges o padres.

Allred y el empresario de El Paso, Woody Hunt, fueron coautores de un artículo de opinión en mayo en el periódico Dallas Morning News en el cual pidieron acciones para expandir el acceso a permisos de trabajo para ayudar a la economía de Texas y mantener unidas a las familias de estatus migratorio mixto. 

“Nuestro sistema de inmigración está roto, y es urgente que se tomen acciones en Texas para asegurar que se pueda satisfacer las necesidades de nuestra economía”, dijo Allred. “No hay sustituto para la acción del Congreso en forma de una reforma migratoria integral, sin embargo este es un paso de sentido común que hará crecer nuestra economía y ayudará a las personas que desean trabajar para que puedan ‘salir de las sombras’. Esto es solo una parte de la solución, y seguiré trabajando para asegurar nuestra frontera y arreglar nuestro sistema de inmigración, a diferencia de Ted Cruz, que prefiere jugar a la política en lugar de hacer algo para resolver el problema”.

En el Congreso, Allred ha defendido el reciente proyecto de ley bipartidista de seguridad fronteriza y se unió a un grupo de trabajo del Congreso para impulsar su aprobación y otras reformas de sentido común para arreglar el quebrantado sistema de inmigración, incluyendo el Dignity Act que es bipartidista.

Ted Cruz votó en contra de este paquete en febrero, declarando que se oponía a ello por razones políticas. El proyecto de ley bipartidista del Senado cuenta con el respaldo de un diverso grupo de interesados, incluyendo el National Border Patrol Council, la U.S. Chamber of Commerce, la National Association of Manufacturers y la U.S. Conference of Mayors.

Además, Cruz votó en contra de un paquete separado de financiamiento gubernamental que se convirtió en ley, el cual incluía millones de dólares en fondos para contratar un récord de 22,000 agentes de la Patrulla Fronteriza.

Allred Lanza su Segundo Anuncio Televisivo de la Elección General, Centrado en la Reducción de Costos para Texanos.

“Recuerdo que mamá siempre recortaba cupones. En la tienda, pasábamos la tarjeta de débito y hacíamos una pequeña oración.”

El Congresista Colin Allred hoy lanzó su segundo anuncio televisivo de la elección general, enfocado en reducir los costos para las familias de Texas. El anuncio se transmitirá en los mercados de televisión en Houston, San Antonio, Harlingen-Brownsville-McAllen y Laredo a partir del martes 11 de junio.

Como tejano de cuarta generación, criado por una madre soltera que era maestra en Dallas y quien tenía dos trabajos para hacer alcanzar el dinero, Allred está profundamente comprometido a reducir  los costos de atención médica y vivienda para las familias trabajadoras.

Durante su tiempo en el Congreso, ha trabajado para limitar el costo de la insulina a $35, reducir los costos de medicamentos para personas con Medicare y ha sido reconocido por su liderazgo en la protección y expansión de la atención médica a buen precio, la Seguridad Social y los beneficios de Medicare. En cambio, Ted Cruz ha votado repetidamente por recortar estos programas. También se ha mantenido firme contra las corporaciones cuando han querido aumentar los costos y ha votado para proporcionar viviendas económicas para veteranos.

Recuerdo que mamá siempre recortaba cupones. En la tienda, pasábamos la tarjeta de débito y hacíamos una pequeña oración.

Por eso he trabajado en el Congreso para reducir los precios para las familias de Texas.

Reduciendo los costos de los medicamentos para los ancianos y limitando el costo de la insulina a $35 al mes.

Como su Senador, yo responsabilizará a las corporaciones por grandes aumentos en los precios.

Y trabajaré para reducir el costo de servicios médicos y de la vivienda.

Soy Colin Allred y apruebo este mensaje, porque nunca olvidaré lo que significan los precios más altos para su familia.

Declaración del Congresista Allred sobre la Orden Ejecutiva del Presidente Biden sobre la Frontera

DALLAS – El congresista Colin Allred hoy emitió la siguiente declaración luego de la orden ejecutiva del presidente Biden que cerrará la frontera debido a que el ingreso de migrantes ha excedido un límite especificado.

“Nuestras comunidades fronterizas necesitan más que discursos y oportunidades fotográficas, necesitan acción,” dijo Allred. “Y aunque he sido crítico del enfoque de esta Administración hacia la frontera, si se implementa correctamente esta orden ejecutiva podría traer un alivio muy necesario a nuestras comunidades fronterizas. Esta acción no resolverá completamente la crisis, pero hemos llegado a este punto debido a los esfuerzos de Ted Cruz para bloquear cualquier solución a nuestro sistema de inmigración roto. No hay sustituto para una acción legislativa de nuestro Congreso para asegurar nuestra frontera y obtener los recursos que necesitan las comunidades fronterizas de Texas. Ted Cruz nunca será parte de una solución, pero en el Senado, lo seré yo.”

Allred on Cruz Opposing Ukraine and Israel Aid: “Texans deserve a Senator who will put our national security over partisan politics”

DALLAS – After House passage on Saturday, the U.S. Senate today voted to move forward on a bipartisan national security package that included support for Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and humanitarian aid for innocent Palestinian civilians in Gaza. The vote was 80-19 with Ted Cruz voting to block passage. Allred, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, supported the House version of the legislation. 

“Over the past few days a bipartisan coalition stood up against Putin and in support of Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and delivering much needed humanitarian aid to innocent Palestinian civilians – but Ted Cruz said no,” said Allred. “Every single time Cruz has the opportunity to work across the aisle and get big things done, he instead stands in the way. Texans deserve a Senator who will put our national security over partisan politics.”

Previously, Cruz joined Senate Republicans in a successful effort to block another version of the bill which included the most substantial bipartisan border security package in years, because it would have, in his words, given “political cover” to Democrats.

Allred has long been supportive of humanitarian and foreign aid that will strengthen our national security. He additionally called for comprehensive immigration reform that would secure our border, meet the needs of our economy, and reflect our values as Texans and Americans. He is proud to be a cosponsor of the Dignity Act, a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform package led by El Paso Congresswoman Veronica Escobar.

ICYMI: AP Investigation Shows Harrowing Reality of Texas Women as a Result of Abortion Ban Ted Cruz Supports

DALLAS – Last week the Associated Press published an investigation detailing the lack of emergency abortion care in Texas and across the country, detailing several stories including a woman who was forced to miscarry in a hospital lobby restroom in Houston.

“This harrowing reality is a direct result of the cruel abortion ban that extreme politicians like Ted Cruz support,” said Allred. “This campaign is about protecting Texans’ freedoms including the freedom to access an abortion. In the U.S. Senate, I will restore Roe v. Wade and ensure that women can get the health care they need.”

From the AP story:

  • ​​Complaints that pregnant women were turned away from U.S. emergency rooms spiked in 2022 after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, federal documents obtained by The Associated Press reveal.
  • The cases raise alarms about the state of emergency pregnancy care in the U.S., especially in states that enacted strict abortion laws and sparked confusion around the treatment doctors can provide.
  • Consider what happened to a woman who was nine months pregnant and having contractions when she arrived at the Falls Community Hospital in Marlin, Texas, in July 2022, a week after the Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion. The doctor on duty refused to see her.
  • “The physician came to the triage desk and told the patient that we did not have obstetric services or capabilities,” hospital staff told federal investigators during interviews, according to documents. “The nursing staff informed the physician that we could test her for the presence of amniotic fluid. However, the physician adamantly recommended the patient drive to a Waco hospital.”
  • At Sacred Heart Emergency Center in Houston, front desk staff refused to check in one woman after her husband asked for help delivering her baby that September. She miscarried in a restroom toilet in the emergency room lobby while her husband called 911 for help.
  • “She is bleeding a lot and had a miscarriage,” the husband told first responders in his call, which was transcribed from Spanish in federal documents. “I’m here at the hospital but they told us they can’t help us because we are not their client.”

Allred Earns Endorsement of Texas State Teachers Association and the National Education Association

DALLAS – Congressman Colin Allred announced he earned the support of the Texas State Teachers Association (TSTA) and its national affiliate, the National Education Association. TSTA, the oldest education organization in Texas, is a statewide organization with over 68,000 members, including public school educators.

“As the son of a public school teacher, I’ve seen firsthand the obstacles and challenges educators face across Texas,” said Allred. “I’m honored to receive the endorsements of the Texas State Teachers Association and the National Education Association. In the U.S. Senate, I will always support our teachers and our public schools. ”

“Public education is in Colin Allred’s DNA. His mother was a public school teacher who instilled in her son the importance of public schools and taught him to respect the hard work and dedication of the people who work in them. Education has been one of Allred’s top priorities during his time in Congress, and we are confident it will remain so as a senator,” said TSTA President Ovidia Molina. “The main interest Cruz has shown in public education during almost two terms in the Senate has been how to privatize it with a national program of school vouchers.”

“Allred knows how critical it is to ensure that every student – no matter their race, place or background – has access to quality public schools,” said NEA President Becky Pringle. “In a time when some extreme politicians are focused on banning books and taking away learning opportunities for students, Colin Allred has partnered with parents and educators to ensure students can get the one-on-one support they need, keep students and educators safe from gun violence, expand school-based mental health programs and address educator shortages. In the Senate, Colin Allred will continue helping level the playing field for working families.”

The Texas State Teachers Association and the National Education Association join the American Federation of Teachers, Texas AFL-CIO, Reproductive Freedom for All, the Human Rights Campaign, the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the College Democrats of America, the League of Conservation Voters, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, Jewish Democratic Council of America, End Citizens United // Let America Vote and other organizations in supporting Allred’s candidacy.

He has also earned the backing of a broad coalition of leaders from across Texas including Congress members Veronica Escobar, Joaquin Castro, Lizzie Fletcher and Marc Veasey, State Senators César Blanco, José Menéndez, Carol Alvarado and Royce West, as well as local leaders including El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, and Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis.

With Expected Samsung Announcement of a Huge Expansion in Taylor, Remember Cruz Opposed the CHIPS Act

DALLAS – This week, the U.S. Department of Commerce is expected to announce that Samsung will receive a substantial federal investment to help expand operations in the Taylor-based manufacturing facility, creating jobs and strengthening Texas’ position as a leader in semiconductor manufacturing. These funds were made possible by the CHIPS and Science Act, which Congressman Colin Allred voted for and proudly championed in the House.

The effort to pass the CHIPS Act was bipartisan and was supported by Texas Republicans like Senator John Cornyn, Congresswoman Kay Granger and Congressman Michael McCaul. Ted Cruz voted no on the CHIPS Act.

Cruz’s record:

  • Not only did Cruz vote no, but he said in a statement after voting no that the bill took the “wrong approach.”
  • He doubled down on opposing the specific provisions that Samsung is taking advantage of by telling NBC DFW, “I think bad things happen when the Federal government is giving billions of dollars to private companies.”
  • This is not new for Cruz. He has voted against or opposed nearly every single major bipartisan bill over the last few years including:
    • The CHIPS and Science Act,
    • The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,
    • The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act,
    • The Senate Bipartisan Border Agreement,
    • And recent bipartisan government funding legislation that will help hire a record 22,000 border agents.

When news of Samsung’s increased investment as a result of the CHIPS Act broke last week Allred released the following statement:

“Once again the CHIPS Act is delivering for our state. I look forward to hearing more details as they become available but we all know that big things happen in Texas when we work together.

“It’s a shame that Ted Cruz time and time again chooses politics over job creation, over leading the world in high-tech manufacturing and over what is best for Texas. I will always work to put Texas first, and I welcome Samsung’s proposed investment.

“Texans deserve a Senator who will put our state first and work to build on this progress for Texas.”

Allred has also championed bipartisan permitting reform that would streamline semiconductor manufacturing projects that receive CHIPS Act funds.

Allred Earns Endorsement of American Federation of Teachers and the United Food and Commercial Workers

DALLAS – Congressman Colin Allred today announced he has earned the support of the Texas American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). Texas AFT is a statewide union with 66,000 members, including K-12 and community college educators, support staff, and retirees. UFCW represents grocery store, retail and food processing workers across Texas.

“As a former union member and the son of a public school teacher, I understand the challenges facing our educators and working families across Texas,” said Allred. “I’m honored to receive the endorsements of the Texas American Federation of Teachers and the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, and I am ready to work alongside them to beat Ted Cruz and give hard working Texans the leadership they deserve in the Senate.”

“Colin Allred has been a relentless champion for public education, understanding that our educators are the cornerstone of our future,” said Zeph Capo, President of Texas AFT. “Ted Cruz has neglected the needs of Texas schools and students, while Colin has shown an unwavering commitment to our public schools and ensuring that every Texan can get the education they need. Ted Cruz demonizes our school employees and politicizes our schools to further his school voucher agenda.  He needs to go.”

“Colin Allred is someone who understands the importance of the workers who put food on our tables. Ted Cruz has consistently sided with corporations and special interests, overlooking the struggles of the very workers who sustain our state. It’s time we retire him to Cancun,” said Ricky Burris, President of UFCW Local 1000. 

The American Federation of Teachers and the United Food and Commercial Workers  joins the Texas AFL-CIO, American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and the Texas State Legislative Board for Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen in supporting Allred’s candidacy.

He has also earned the backing of a broad coalition of leaders from across Texas including Congress members Veronica Escobar, Joaquin Castro, Lizzie Fletcher and Marc Veasey, State Senators César Blanco, José Menéndez, Carol Alvarado and Royce West, as well as local leaders including El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, and Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis.

Allred Continues Fundraising Momentum, Raising $9.5 Million in First Quarter of 2024

DALLAS — Congressman Colin Allred announced his campaign brought in over $9.5 million over the first three months of 2024. Allred has raised nearly $28 million total since the launch of his campaign.

“Texans from every corner of the state are joining Congressman Allred’s campaign to say it is time for new leadership in the Senate,” said Colin Allred for Senate Campaign Manager Paige Hutchinson. “We are so grateful for the continued outpouring of support from Texans of all stripes. This campaign is about rejecting the divisiveness of Ted Cruz and fighting for Texans’ freedoms. This continues our momentum to build a strong campaign to win in November and send Ted Cruz packing for good.”

These numbers reflect the amount brought into Allred’s campaign committee.

Quick stats:

  • Over $27.9 million in total receipts since launch

  • Contributions from 247 of Texas’ 254 counties since launch

  • Over 285,000 individual contributors

  • Average donation $34.75

This total reflects the campaign’s fundraising in the entire first quarter of 2024 – combining the campaign’s pre-Primary report, which covered January 1 through February 14th, with the total of the upcoming report, which covers the post-Primary period of February 15th through March 31.

Allred on Cruz’s Bipartisan Charade: “I Don’t Think Ted Cruz Is Fooling Anybody”

DALLAS – Since his first day in the House, Congressman Colin Allred has worked to bridge the partisan divide in Congress to deliver real results for Texans, winning awards from organizations like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for his bipartisanship.

report in the Texas Tribune dives deep into that record of bipartisanship – including how Allred is “ranked the most bipartisan member of the Texas congressional delegation.” The story draws a sharp contrast with Ted Cruz’s career of partisanship and division.

“I don’t think Ted Cruz is fooling anybody,” Allred said in the story. “He spent 12 years being the most divisive — and proudly so — partisan warrior in the United States. And I think it’s kind of laughable actually that at this point, when he’s in a close race, that he wants to now stress, ‘Oh, actually I have been working in a bipartisan way.’”

When Allred played in the NFL as a linebacker, they had a saying: check the tape – because the tape doesn’t lie.

Here’s what the Texas Tribune is reporting about Ted Cruz’s real record:

  • “His critics say he’s trying to rewrite history, noting that Cruz has built a persona that demonizes Democrats. In his podcast, countless radio and television appearances, and his books, Cruz routinely blasts the other party as actively working to destroy the country.”

  • “Cruz consistently votes against some of the biggest bipartisan bills in Congress and is routinely ranked as one of the most conservative members in the Senate.”

  • “He was ranked 91 out of 98 senators in 2021 in the Lugar Center’s bipartisan index by Georgetown University… Texas’ senior Sen. John Cornyn was ranked 8th.”

  • “[Javier] Palomarez, a lifelong Democrat who is part of Cruz’ coalition, formerly led the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce until 2018, when he stepped down over allegations of financial misconduct and sexual harassment.” 

  • “Cruz has also voted against nearly every major bill pushed by Biden, including bipartisan bills that garnered the support of other Texas Republicans. He opposed the CHIPS and Science Act and the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act — both major bills that Cornyn worked on. The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which he voted against, ended up investing billions into Texas roads and bridges.”

  • “When bipartisan Senate negotiators unveiled a border plan that would put harder caps on the number of migrants admitted into the country, Cruz was one of the most vocal to declare the bill dead after Trump urged Republicans not to support the bill.”
