Join the Galveston Pachyderms for our August 17th Meeting:
Chris Russo is the founder and President of Texans for Strong Borders. Chris founded Strong Borders in 2022 after observing that while many special interest policy organizations exist across the conservative spectrum, no group was organized and actively pushing for Texas First immigration policies at the state level.
Chris worked for six years as a flight controller for the International Space Station at NASA Johnson Space Center before leaving in November 2022 to focus full-time on fighting to secure the Texas border and put Texans first. He is also an avid grassroots activist, has participated in several campaigns around the state, and served as the SD-11 GOP Resolutions Committee chair in 2020. He attended Texas A&M, where he received both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering. Chris is a native Houstonian who currently lives in El Lago and attends St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church.
Chris also serves as an advisory board member for the National Immigration Center for Enforcement.
