Ted Poe Makes Me Proud!

Republican Congressman Ted Poe has stepped into the gauntlet! I have known Ted Poe since his days as a criminal court judge in Harris County. I love to call him “Judge.” Please read Ted Poe's article in Politco "To start immigration reform, study Texas solution". Then forward it to other members of the Texas Delegation and ask them to get on the train and support Ted Poe! Texas Republicans have a sensible solution, it is appropriately named the Texas Solution!

With Ted Poe, Republicans can be the leaders on sensible immigration reform! The time is now!

Texas Republicans Have the Answer!

In June 2012, the largest state Republican convention in the country overwhelmingly approved a sensible immigration plank. It is known as the Texas Solution. Texas Republicans are no longer willing to kick the can down the road. They want Congress to adopt a solution, and they have offered an outline. Now Congress needs to act!

The Texas Solution - A Video Recap

Over the last two weeks, we've watched the RNC and the DNC and seen how intense it can be on the floor at a convention.  While we didn't have Fox News or CNN recording everything in Fort Worth, we did put together this recap of how the Texas Solution on immigration was made part of the platform.

IMMIGRATION 

THIS IS A PLEA TO THE GOP - TOGETHER WE CAN SAVE AMERICA IN 2012!

WHO AM I?

My name is Norman E. Adams. I have been a small business owner (an insurance agent) for 47 years. I have been active in the Republican Party for 47 years. In the last 30 years, due to the abortion issue, I have not missed a precinct caucus. I have been a delegate to every Republican Senatorial Convention and every State Republican Convention. I have been a delegate or an alternate to five National Conventions. I am proud to have served on the Texas Republican Party Platform Committee four times!

WHO ARE YOU?

A lot people are asking: What happened to the Sanctuary City bill?

On May 18 Tommy Williams' Senatorial Committee held a hearing to discuss Sanctuary Cities. The hearing room overflowed with police chiefs, sheriffs, pastors, priests, and business owners. The most compelling testimony came from law enforcement. Although the bill had been drafted to avoid unfunded mandates and enhance law enforcement, the testimony proved both claims to be false. The testimony proved beyond a doubt that a sanctuary city bill would damage law enforcement's ability to protect the public, especially in Hispanic neighborhoods.

Sanctuary City bill opposed by Republicans Adams and Hotze

This is an open response to Governor Perry's Chief of Staff, Ray Sullivan. This email is from Norman E. Adams and is supported by Doctor Steve Hotze.

Dear Ray Sullivan;

Good News regarding SB 9!

Senator Tommy Williams' SB 9 has been amended for the better!

A "revised" SB 9 passed the Senate, without two provisions that pushed mandates on our local law enforcement and authorized “roadblocks” throughout the State of Texas.

It seems clear to me. You spoke, and the Senators listened!

Texans for Sensible Immigration Policy salutes our Texas Senators, and commends them for their tireless efforts!

God bless Texas!
