Texas Republicans have legalized racial profiling in Texas:


America has always defined itself as a nation of immigrants, Texas is no different.

Yet in 2017, Republican Governor Greg Abbott has chosen to offend America’s defining principle, cultivate a culture of fear, and distort reality to fit into Trump’s right-wing political agenda.

The Republican’ Trump Deportation Force law, Senate Bill 4, is an unconstitutional, ‘show-me-your-papers’ law that has legalized racial profiling and discrimination against half of all Texans -- plain and simple.

This racist Republican law makes you a suspect in your own home, car, and neighborhood.

It will spend millions of your tax dollars on terrorizing the most vulnerable, targeting children, and tearing apart families.

It drives a wedge between communities and law enforcement, making our streets more dangerous and the jobs of our police officers more difficult. Don’t just take my word, ask any of the police chiefs from Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and all across the state.

As Texas Republicans tear at the moral fabric of our nation, a wound has been dealt on our communities that will not easily heal.

One thing is certain, our work is just beginning. Texas Democrats will always stand by our neighbors, take legal action when necessary, and fight back.

We can’t fight back alone. %%firstname(Friend)%%, will you continue to stand up for equality, freedom, and justice? Make a donation today to fight against Trump Republicans’ assault on our families:
