Texas immigration control citizen activists must lead!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2017

Just now I saw this headline story at The Hill:

Sure we all agree that it makes sense that a mixture of measures be included in the border security plan, but Cornyn is chairman now of the subcommittee in the Senate that was so ably run by then Senator Jeff Sessions.

Sen. John Cornyn has been in the Senate for nearly 15 years, and apparently has never done anything of significance on the issue (please correct me if I am wrong!).


Cornyn in the catbird seat! If you want to see the Refugee Admissions Program reined-in and reformed, Texans need to pound Senator Cornyn!

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is pushing back against the Trump administration’s call for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing in some areas it wouldn’t be the best option.

“There’s parts of our border which it makes absolutely no sense,” the Senate’s No. 2 Republican told a Texas ABC station on Wednesday. “But what is helpful [is] to have fencing, for example, is places like San Diego, it’s a large urban area.”

Cornyn added that he thought border security needed to include a mixture of personnel, technology and infrastructure.

There is more, but the border wall isn’t the point of this post.

The point is that if you want to reform the US Refugee Admissions Program (and control illegal immigration), Texas Washington Reps should be the focus.

We look to citizen activists in Texas to lead the charge.

Senator Cornyn as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee (now renamed Subcommittee on Border Security and Immigration) is the key Senator to focus on.  Senator Sessions had called this same subcommittee—Immigration and the National Interest—which spoke volumes about what Senator Sessions was trying to accomplish.

See the makeup of the critical subcommittee below (Texas Senator Cruz is on it too!):




Donald Trump will not be able to get immigration/the refugee program under control without Senator Cornyn’s active involvement in a supporting role.

Then over in the House, Texans have Rep. Brian Babin, the chief architect of refugee reform legislation, who needs support.

And, Texas citizens have Rep. Michael McCaul as Chairman of Homeland Security and see that the House Appropriations Committee  has several Texans in key positions. Cutting funding for the USRAP is one way to skin the cat!

So, again, if Texans could get organized to focus on a couple of key representatives in Washington, you could not only save Texas, but all of America!

By the way, Texas Governor Abbott withdrew the state from the USRAP but it is pretty much a useless move since the program there is now run by private contractors. He could sue the feds on State’s Rights grounds, but so far there doesn’t seem to be the will.  (Even as Texas continues to vie with California as the number one resettlement state in the nation!)

This post is tagged ‘Where is Congress,’ see all of my posts on the subject.  By the way, for the most part members of Congress and Senators are hiding while Donald Trump gets beat up on the subject!

  1. We as a Nation cannot have two sets of rules for the people of America.Rules and laws that make our Country awesome must be obeyed by everyone.These laws are not here just for American Citizens but it seems these laws and rules are only enforced on the American Citizens. A law that states all Americans must account for all their income and no laws for illegal immigrants because WE don’t know who these people are,where they are or where their going. If your going to come to this Country you cannot abuse the people or our laws. Illegal immigrants MUST respect our ways our laws and most of all our People.
    Stealing identities and social security numbers from innocent American Citizens must not be allowed anymore by anyone.
    I say this to ALL illegal immigrants You have worn your welcome completely out by disrespecting our Country and our People now you must leave!

    The refugee contractors have a lot to hide,if they are not getting a handout under the table there .then they are being Paid off Shore where you cannot check it out,Just like Lots of Politicians.


  3. We Texas Immigration fighters well know about RINO Cornyn. He needs to be replaced. We are focused on the TX lege right now but we can write letters and call his office. Any other ideas welcome. He is in that key position for a reason.


  4. As a Texan thankfully reader of ya’ll and a self describe counterinsurgency stop Muslim brotherhood Sharia this strengthened my resolve and reminds me the battlefield is anywhere no demilitarized zone rules of engagement notwithstanding our combatants are not wearing black pajamas uniforms rather jihads in suits one at least we have ya’ll and yes government problem grassroots solutions
