Speeches

Yesterday, Congressman Poe joined CNN's Lou Dobbs to discuss theimportant legal victory in the State of Texas v. Jose Medellin case. The United States Supreme Court ruled that President Bush exceeded his authority when he tried to intervene on behalf of an illegal alien convicted of raping and killing Texas teens, Elizabeth Pena and Jennifer Ertman. The case focused on the fight over states' rights, the jurisdiction of international courts and the sovereignty of the United States.
