Justin will partner with local, statewide, and federal law enforcement in order to aggressively investigate, apprehend, and prosecute dangerous criminals who would pass through our border. Serious threats of terrorism, gang violence, and human trafficking passing into our state cannot be taken lightly.

As Attorney General, Justin would use the full power of his office to end the crisis. The Texas government must ensure that children are treated humanely and reunited with their families to the greatest extent possible. As a candidate, Justin helped to organize lawyers to represent children affected by the separations.
