Whether you were born here, moved here, married in … or just came here for the barbecue, there is no such thing as a stranger in anyone we meet,” he said.
Jamie Foxx added, “I know people’s will has been tested, I know our humanity has been tested,” he added. “But there’s nothing like Texas people, and we will do whatever we can to protect our Texas spirit, our Texas roots, because nobody – absolutely nobody – messes with Texas.”
