About Us

Texans for Strong Borders exists to advance sane immigration policies in the best interest of citizens. Our organization provides policymakers with resources to make informed decisions and as a conduit for the grassroots to engage with elected officials. We believe in stopping illegal immigration and legal immigration policies that serve the interests of Americans.

Chris Russo – President

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 border security and 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 October 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.
