Carolyn Hodges, Texas Federation of Republican Women, Supports The Texas Solution

The following is a letter Texas Federation of Republican Women's former President, Carolyn Hodges:

Dear RPT Delegates to 2014 Convention,

In a couple of weeks, we will all gather in Fort Worth for our convention and take care of crafting and approving the 2014 Republican Party of Texas Platform. Each Senatorial District has appointed a temporary member to the Platform Committee. Please be sure you attend your SD caucus meeting at 5:00 PM, Thursday, June 5. That is when the permanent committee members will be elected. I am urging you to elect a person to this committee that will ensure that “The Texas Solution” will remain a part of our platform. A copy of “The Texas Solution” is included.

Letter to Texas Republican Delegates from Brad Bailey

Dear Republican Party of Texas Delegate,

Thank you for agreeing to serve as a delegate to the 2014 RPT Convention.

During the convention delegates will be asked to ratify our Republican Party of Texas Platform. The Platform is serious business because it is an outline for how we expect our leaders to govern.

Our nation’s immigration policy is broken. Being a border state, Texans see this failure everyday.

Dr. Hotze, President of Conservative Republicans of Texas, Supports the Texas Solution!

The following is a press release from the Texas Farm Bureau:

Spies in the Camp - Part V – Show Me the Money!

“Heiress and bird-lover Cordelia Scaife May believed nature and the U.S. were under siege from runaway population growth. Eight years after her death, she continues to influence the immigration debate.” Joseph Tanfini, L.A. Times

What do FAIR, NumbersUSA, and CIS all have in common (besides John Tanton, and Board Members made up of population-control environmentalists, of course)? The answer is: MONEY! IRS records show that in 2010, one charitable foundation with roots in extreme environmentalism and population control, the Colcom Foundation, contributed over $7.1 million to these organizations.

Spies in the Camp - Part IV - Center for Immigration Studies

“For credibility, [CIS] will need to be independent of FAIR, though the Center for Immigration Studies, as we’re calling it, is starting off as a project of FAIR.”
-John Tanton, letter to Cordelia Scaife

Below are the backgrounds of CIS’s Principals and Directors. These are some of CIS’s most strident environmentalists, liberal Democrats, and abortion advocates.

Spies in the Camp - Part III - NumbersUSA

FAIR has been successful in manipulating the masses by creating spin-off groups such as NumbersUSA and The Center for Immigration Studies (“CIS”). Most people are unaware of the ties between John Tanton and NumbersUSA’s leader, Roy Beck. However, it was John Tanton’s non-profit organization, US Inc. that spawned NumbersUSA.

Spies in the Camp - Part II - FAIR

FAIR was founded in 1979 by Dr. John Tanton. John Tanton is an admitted environmentalist. In the 1960’s and 70’s Tanton served in high ranking positions in Environmentalist organizations such as The Sierra Club and the Michigan Natural Areas Council. Tanton’s concern for the environment led him to advocate “Family Planning” (a.k.a., ABORTION) as means of population control. From 1965 to 1971 Tanton served as organizer and President of Northern Michigan PLANNED PARENTHOOD. John Tanton’s concern for the environment has also fueled his desire to curb immigration.

Below are the backgrounds of FAIR’s Board of Directors and National Board of Advisors.

Spies in the Camp Part I - An Intro

When you need advice, you talk someone you trust because you know that person's view of the world is one you share. You know that person does not have a hidden agenda that may be contrary to your own. If that person stands in opposition to you in those respects, would it change your mind about following their advice? It probably should. The GOP is in the same position on immigration. We are a party split between a majority that wants to resolve a broken immigration system and establish a sensible approach and a vocal minority

The Legislature Shouldn’t Hit-And-Run on Immigration

The following article was writteb by Scott Braddock:

You might think a proposal to force undocumented immigrants to be background checked, fingerprinted, photographed and entered into a database would be an easy sell with Republican lawmakers. But, you’d be wrong.

With time quickly running out in the legislative session, a plan to make it possible for undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver permit has stalled in legislature. The idea’s Republican champion in the House, Rep. Byron Cook of Corsicana, said the process has slowed way down but he’s still hopeful the proposal can become law. “Right now, we are pushing a big rock uphill,” he told me.
