Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Texas is a vibrant state of immigrants. We value those who come from different countries and cultures. Texans deserve real solutions to the immigration debate, not fear-mongering and divisive politics that tear families apart.
“Texans won’t sit idly by as Trump continues to try to steal our land and tears our families apart. We need a just and fair comprehensive immigration reform solution that includes an earned path to citizenship for law-abiding immigrants and their children, keeps families together, protects DREAMers, and provides workforce solutions for businesses.
“The Trump-Cornyn immigration plan offers none of these solutions.”
