Texas Lt. Governor candidate State Sen. Dan Patrick, a Republican, engaged in a highly-publicized debate on immigration and border security with San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, a Democrat widely believed to have national political aspirations, in a less-than-civil exhibition match of polarized views.

What is Senatorial District Seven going to do with all those Illegal aliens? What path will Republicans choose today, for the future of Texas tomorrow?

I have often spoken on this subject, and have discussed this issue with friend and foe alike, in both English as well as Spanish, and see this question as pivotal to the future of the Republican Party in Texas.

What motivates me to address this topic today is something that occurred at our recent Harris County SD convention.   Read more »

Trowbridge: Undocumented immigrants deserve in-state tuition

In the most recent Republican Primary, it was pitiful to watch the candidates try to avoid the question of in-state tuition for undocumented resident students. I wish they had all read the article below by Ronald L. Trowbridge, which was originally published in the Houston Chronicle:

Raging now is the heated issue of whether undocumented workers should be permitted in-state tuition. I boldly say, yes - for two reasons: One, educated immigrants pay back more to society than they take. Two, it is ethically right to grant such tuition.   Read more »
