In Austin and Washington, the Republicans efforts to pander to the radical and bigoted anti-Latino Tea party is costing them their reputation and could cost us all our very security. the Tea party's platform is fundamentally based upon an agenda set by the radical white supremacist Tanton Network. Thus, they will do anything they can to oppose all forms of immigration and force Latinos into leaving America. the Republican Party, ten years ago, chose to embrace the Tea parties at the expense of Latinos. Those people have long left and more are alienated every day. Today, however, there are still a few Republicans unwilling to pander to the radical minority Tea party types like The Bigot King, Louie Gohmert and Ted Cruz. In Austin, Joe Straus, Speaker of the House, says he will not support an effort to remove "In State Tuition" from undocumented students in opposition to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick who ran on that issue in his campaign. Straus also said that border security is a law enforcement measure and not the business of the National Guard. Contrastingly, John Boehner, Speaker of the House in Washington, continues to attempt to placate the Tea party radicals with his manufactured lie that Obama's executive action on immigration was, in his words, unconstitutional. It was not. It is a lie to say so. But they are sticking to that lie and playing a dangerous game of chicken with the Democrats in the Senate over it. In fact, the Republicans who are all about "law and order" are in a position to have the DHS run OUT of funding by the end of this month! But they are trying to bet their way out of the bluff with your money and safety. It is really very sad and I'm very sorry to see John Boehner, who knows better and favors immigration reform fail to stand up for what is right and good for America in a failing effort to placate the radical Tea party. So sorry to see that.
