Austin, TX -- Today, the Texas Senate State Affairs Committee voted to move Imperial Gov. Abbott’s Articles of Confederation to the Texas Senate Floor. [Statesman, February 2017]
Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Crystal K. Perkins issued the following statement:
“The Texas economy under Imperial Gov. Greg Abbott has plummeted from 3rd to 21st, the President of the United States could be compromised by Russia, and children are dying in Abbott’s state foster care system, but the Texas Republican Senate has the time to discuss ripping apart the United States Constitution.
“This is one of the most un-American, unpatriotic things I’ve ever seen. Trump Republicans are nothing but a bunch of crackpots and traitors.”

Governor Abbott, silence is complicit. You must tell Texas families right now that the State of Texas will not allow its National Guard Troops to be drafted into Trump’s Mass Deportation Force.
