This afternoon at HPOU headquarters, I had the honor of showing my support of the fight to prevent human smuggling with Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson and our next governor, General Greg Abbott.
It is important to note that human smuggling and human trafficking are two distinct crimes. For example, the definition of human smuggling is the importation and/or harboring of people into the United States involving deliberate evasion of immigration laws. Human trafficking however, is defined as the exploitation of persons for labor or services for the purpose of involuntary servitude, slavery, or forced commercial sex acts.
In Houston, we've witnessed first-hand on numerous occasions the deplorable conditions many of those smuggled into the country are forced to live in as a result of the law evading tactics utilized by smugglers to prevent detection.

I'm excited to announce some key appointments before this Saturday's biennial Organizational Meeting of the Harris County Republican Party. Please join me in welcoming Susanna Dokupil as proposed County Party Vice-Chair, Joe Slovacek as Finance Chair, and former Bellaire Mayor Cindy Siegel as Treasurer.
I'm honored these strong conservatives have agreed to serve our party in these critical positions. With their help, we can build a professional party operation that focuses on the grassroots to ensure Texas remains a conservative Republican State.
Susanna, Joe, and Cindy have given countless hours to help grow our party and build effective grassroots organizations. Susanna played an important role in electing Senator Ted Cruz, Joe just recently helped Dan Patrick raise funds for his primary election runoff, and Cindy, a CPA, is in her second term as President of the Magic Circle Republican Women's Club while also serving as Treasurer for the Greater Houston Council of Federated Republican Women's Club.
Please help me in welcoming these great conservatives to the Harris County Republican Party.
