State and Federal Representation

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) operates the Laredo Parole Office in Laredo.

There is an office too on Arkansas Avenue of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. At the previous location of the commission on Casa Blanca Road, a tragedy occurred on December 5, 2011, when a 38-year-old woman, Rachelle Grimmer, mortally wounded her two children and then committed suicide after she was initially denied food stamp, now Lone Star Card, benefits. Grimmer took two social workers hostage before a supervisor, Robert Reyes, offered himself in place of the employees. The Grimmer tragedy was voted the No. 1 news story in Laredo for 2011 by the Laredo Morning Times.

The U.S. District Court is based downtown in a relatively new building next to the Webb County Courthouse. The United States Postal Service operates its main Post Office at 2700 East Saunders Street south of Laredo International Airport.

Famous quotes containing the words state and/or federal:

    Wags try to invent new stories to tell about the legislature, and end by telling the old one about the senator who explained his unaccustomed possession of a large roll of bills by saying that someone pushed it over the transom while he slept. The expression “It came over the transom,” to explain any unusual good fortune, is part of local folklore.
    —For the State of Montana, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    If the federal government had been around when the Creator was putting His hand to this state, Indiana wouldn’t be here. It’d still be waiting for an environmental impact statement.
