My call to Ted Poe's office

On February 9 I went to Ted Poe's website and signed up for his "Telephone Townhall" and had not heard anything so today I called and was told he had one last week. I asked why I was not contacted and told they didn't know. I asked if it had anything to do with the fact that I voted in the Democratic Primary. She said know and she wasn't sure how it was decided who got notified. I told her that it seemed like he is trying to avoid his constituents when he has these Telephone Town Hall because he can only have so many on a phone call and with an in person town hall people can come even if it has to be moved outside or there had to be overflow. It seems like our Texas Republican Congressmen are avoiding in person meetings by not having town halls in their districts.


Am I right to feel like congressmen having "Telephone Town Halls" are a way for them to weasel out of facing their constituents?

Now I am starting to worry about mi esposo

My husband is from Honduras. He has Temporary Protected Status (TPS - has a Texas State ID , a SS card and a work permit) - for the last 20 years. Because he was deported a few years before he applied for and got TPS (caught in Harlingen, Texas and voluntarily agreed to be returned, no criminal record, except a Public Intoxication about 10 years ago), he is not eligible to have his status adjusted to permanent resident. Additionally, he works on a crew with 2 undocumented aliens from Mexico doing construction. Feeling very worried about how long before I might get a call from him saying that he's either in detention or that he is stuck somewhere because Juan and Roberto were picked up and the truck was impounded and I need to come pick him up.
