PROTECT OUR IMMIGRANTS
All families must be treated equally, regardless of their origin
Immigration is an integral part of Texas history. Currently immigrants make up 17% of our population. These Texas families are a vibrant and vital part of communities across our state. Yet our attorney general has decided to sue the federal government to end the DACA program along with 6 other states.
This is a threat to their well-being and will tear apart these families. This is cruel and a danger to our economy. In addition, the SB4 bill was passed and upheld by challenges in our appeals court. This bill allows law enforcement officers to detain and question the immigration status of our citizens, and punish local governments for not cooperating with these officers in their attempt to safeguard families.
These Texas families need to be protected while comprehensive immigration reform is addressed.
