Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX-27) joined The Texan’s senior reporter Hayden Sparks to discuss the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, the growing federal database of federal firearm sales records, and what Cloud would like to see happen in Congress if Republicans win a majority of seats in the House of Representatives this November.

“I can speak for myself in what we’ll be pushing, and I know a number of other Republicans who agree on the issues will be — whether we can get the whole conference to support it, and whether we can get it through the Senate and then on to the White House desk is a different issue,” said Cloud.

“First of all, we’ve got to impeach [Department of Homeland Security Secretary] Mayorkas. This guy is not acting in good faith. He lies to the American people. He lies about what’s going on at the border.”
