As President Joe Biden’s open border crisis continues with rising numbers of illegal border crossers and enough fentanyl to kill every Texan roughly 150 times over, an event called Uncensored: The Border Education Summit will take place at the Texas Capitol in Austin this Wednesday.

Speakers include Senior Fellow at the Center for Renewing America Ken Cuccinelli, who has promoted the plan for states to declare an invasion and defend their sovereign borders—which 18 Texas counties have done so far—as well as U.S. Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Jodey Arrington (R-TX).

Roy has been particularly focused on the issue of drug trafficking, with his office working to have criminal cartels declared Foreign Terrorist Organizations and easing law enforcement’s ability to work against the transnational criminal organizations.

Two former U.S. officials, former Border Patrol Chief and current Texas Public Policy Foundation fellow Rodney Scott, as well as former U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan, will also be speaking at the summit.

Additionally, Texas border county officials such as Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe, Kinney County Attorney Brent Smith, and Goliad County Sheriff Roy Boyd will share their experiences from the crisis on the frontline.

Former law enforcement officials, as well as activists, are also slated to speak on Wednesday. Additional topics to be discussed include unaccompanied minors, the food supply chain, and government subsidies for illegal aliens.

Notably, few state officials have committed to attending, with Brent Smith saying “their absence will speak volumes,” especially as “the safety and security of its citizens is the paramount goal for any government.”

“The vast majority of Texans place a very high importance on border security issues, and the lackluster response from the Legislature should raise red flags to voters who have put them into office. They have a constitutional duty to protect Texans.”

The summit will be held at the Texas Capitol Auditorium on Wednesday, September 7.
