  • 36 members from Texas 13 Democrats and 23 Republicans
  • All 13 Democrats are a NO.
  • 5 Republicans are a NO
  • 2 Republicans are wishy washy and will not commit




1 Louie Gohmert R Yes “We’ve got to stand firm on getting money for the wall. We have got to stand firm on that.”
2 Dan Crenshaw R Yes We should not only build the wall but also ramp up tech-savvy ways to secure our border, like drones and sensors
3 John Taylor R Yes
4 John Ratcliffe R Yes “I was proud to vote for the passage of $5.7 billion to fund the wall along our Southern Border,”
5 Lance Gooden R Yes. “On today’s agenda: 1) drain the swamp and 2) FUND THE WALL!”
6 Ron Wright R YesI applaud President Trump’s decision to send the National Guard to protect our border. Congress should support the president on this including fully funding the wall”
7 Lizzie Fletcher D No
8 Kevin Brady R Yes I voted to stand with President Trump in his call to fully fund the border wall
9 Al Green D No ““=Building what President Trump calls ‘a big, beautiful border wall’ is a ‘clear, simple, and wrong’ answer to a complex immigration problem. To be clear, every sovereign country has the right and duty to control its border. However, we should not create a false sense of security with a pseudo-panacean wall when the problem is much more complex.”
10 Michael McCaul R Wishy Washy “You have to understand, too, that a 30-foot concrete wall is a very expensive proposition. And there are a lot of other things we can be doing technologywise to make it a smart border that’s more effective and more cost efficient.”
11 Mike Conaway R No. Voted NO on building a fence along the Mexican border.
12 Kay Granger R No She said Trump’s call for a wall between the United States and Mexico would hurt our relationship with the country.  
13 Mac Thornberry R No A prominent Republican said Tuesday he does not want money allocated for the military to be used for a border wall between the United States and Mexico.
14 Randy Weber R Wishy Washy Supports fences.
15 Vicente Gonzalez D No“I want to see a wire transfer from the federal government of Mexico to the United States Treasury for that wall,”
16 Veronica Escobar D No “We know walls don’t work, that they don’t stop drugs. That they don’t stop migration,”
17 Bill Flores R NoNo. We need border integrity. Border integrity is a physical barrier where a physical barrier makes sense, where it’s feasible to have one. The bulk of the Texas border doesn’t represent an area where a wall is feasible.”
18 Sheila Jackson Lee D No
19 Jodey Arrington R Yes Whether it’s a loser or not politically, this is the right thing to do.
20 Joaquin Castro D No
21 Chip Roy R YesFully fund and build the border wall immediately.
22 Pete Olson R Yes. In a competitive district.
23 Will Hurd R No. Barely won in 2018, “Building a wall from sea to shining sea is the most expensive and least effective way to do border security. We need to allow the men and women in Border Patrol to adjust their tactics, techniques and procedures as they see fit. You can’t have a one-size-fits-all solution,” he said in a statement to the Tribune. “What works in San Diego doesn’t necessarily work in Tucson, and you need something different in El Paso. In heavily populated places a wall can be a useful tool. It’s just one more tool in your toolkit used to solve this problem.”
24 Kenny Marchant R YesWe need to fulfill the will of the people and most of the feedback I’ve received from my district is to vote to fund the wall.”
25 Roger Williams R Yes U.S. Representative Roger Williams, District 25 (R-Austin), discusses why he believes increased funding for a wall on the U.S. southern border is necessary.
26 Michael Burgess R Yes “Trump’s support for a border wall is refreshing.”
27 Michael Cloud R YesCongress must fully fund the border wall”
28 Henry Cuellar D No “If you want to secure the border from letting drugs come in, a wall is not going to help because if you look at the latest DEA report, most of the drugs that come into the United States come through ports,” 
29 Sylvia Garcia D No
30 Eddie Bernice Johnson D No “A border wall will not achieve the goal that President Trump seeks to accomplish and I disagree with its premise to keep all immigrants out of our country. Furthermore, building a 2,000 mile long wall along our southern border is not only a knee jerk reaction to our issues with immigration, it is fiscally irresponsible. 
31 John Carter R Yes“It’s time to build that wall,” Carter said. “If you don’t want people from Austin, liberals like the folks who most of us moved up here to get away from, if you don’t want them running … you gotta wake up with this election.”
32 Colin Alred D No He says he supports border security, but characterizes the $5.7 billion Trump wants for the border wall as a waste of money.
33 Marc Veasey D No
34 Filemon Vela Jr. D No. Told Trump to stick his wall up his ass.
35 Lloyd Doggett D No “For our Nation of immigrants, a wall rejects our very history. A wall is not about America leading the world, a wall is about trying to shut off the rest of the world.
36 Brian Babin R Yes. “I am proud of President Trump for drawing a line and insisting that we fulfill the promise we made to the American people in 2016 to build the wall” Won his re-election 73-27
