Today, I authorized the deployment of all of the Texas National Guard to address the challenges that Texans are facing all the way from Corpus Christi to Houston, Texas. We want to ensure that we're doing all we can to maintain safety and security of everybody in the entire state of Texas.
There is a reality that we have to come to grips with, and that is we are just beginning the process of responding to this storm. Importantly, this is a place that Texas and FEMA will be involved in for a long, long time. We will be here until we can restore this region as back to normal as possible.
