We warned you about what was coming our way—a record number of anti-immigrant bills have been pre-filed for Texas’s 102nd Congress. As you read this, leaders from across Texas are walking the halls of the Texas Capitol educating legislators on how these bad bills will hurt our families, our businesses, our cities, and our security. The Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance, of which LUPE is a member, kicked off our state-wide campaign to fight these bad bills this morning with a press conference on the steps of the Capitol.
You have a powerful voice to demand no anti-immigrant laws be passed in Texas. Take a simple action now to join your voice with those walking the halls of the Capitol by sending a free postcard to Lt. Governor David Dewhurst.
Lt. Governor Dewhurst is the most powerful legislator and has a huge influence over whether a bill will be passed into law. Mr. Dewhurst needs to hear that the people of Texas won’t stand for anti-immigrant legislation that scapegoats the honest, hardworking immigrants in our community and does nothing to address the real problems Texans face. RITA members of the RGV want him to hear from 20,000 members of the RGV community.
