Once again, Texas Republicans show leadership on the issue of immigration reform. Friday night, in Fort Worth, Texas, the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) took a historic step toward finding solutions for our nation’s broken immigration policies.

South Texas Politics - Interview with Texas Rep JM Lozano - Energy and Agriculture

"The Texas Democratic Party is no longer the party of Texas," according to Texas State Rep. J.M. Lozano. "They are the party of San Francisco." These are comments from Texas' newest Republican state legislator during an interview with TexasGOPVote about the changing politics of South Texas.

Why Democrats Fear Republican Latinos: And Those Switching to the Right Side

Democrats could anticipate the Latino vote without much effort or campaigning in past political races. In fact, it used to be the norm that if Latinos voted, no one asked their political affiliation because it was presumed that they were Democrat, especially in Texas. Studies have shown us that Latinos will come out and vote at certain times and for certain candidates.

Women on the Wall and IRCOT Founder Rebecca Forest Says There are Too Many Hispanics in Texas Legislature

Racism raises its ugly head at the most interesting times. Saturday, June 11 in Austin, the founder of the Immigration Reform Coalition of Texas (IRCOT) and Women on the Wall, Rebecca Forest told a sparsely attended group of protesters that there are just too many Hispanics in the Texas Legislature. Is this the voice of those who support legislation like State Senator Tommy Williams' so-called "Sanctuary Cities" bill (SB 9), a bill which has somehow become a "catch-all" for all the anti-immigration bills that didn't make it during regular session?  Are they really anti-illegal immigration or are they just anti-immigration, or worse yet, anti-Hispanic?

UPDATE: I will be on Dallas' KRLD Radio with Scott Braddock Wednesday morning at 10:50 to discuss this story.  Tune in and listen please!    Read more »

Stop the Corporate Welfare

Call members of the House Economic and Small Business Development committee and let them know we’re serious about eliminating corporate welfare and unnecessary spending in Texas – let’s get HB 465 a hearing and let’s get HB 466 passed (of course if HB 465 passed, HB 466 would be unnecessary).

HB304 Targets Vote Harvesting in Texas

On Tuesday, March 1, the House Select Committee on Voter Identification and Voter Fraud began hearing testimony on the Voter ID bill that passed the Senate two weeks ago. While this is definitely a good start at combating those who wish to skew the will of voters, I believe there is more that could be done during this legislative session. During this session, as in previous sessions, Voter ID has been the main focus for combating fraud, but there is another problem plaguing Texas – vote harvesting.
