“I have a profound respect for our American legal system. Texas voters play a vital roll in preserving our way of life by insuring that only people who value the central role law plays in our society are elected at all levels of government. It is law, through our Constitution, that defines and protects our liberties, defines the relationships between the States and the Federal Government and protects our free enterprise system through respect for private property. Vigilance by our Texas voters is crucial.”

Speaker’s Debate

Hispanics Need to VOTE!

If you're a legal, Hispanic citizen and Registered to Vote, please do your duty and cast your vote for a Conservative candidate.

All across the state of Texas, Hispanics are growing tired of the empty promises offered by Democrats. Voters have seen with their own eyes how Democrats dangle the carrot, yet fail to deliver on their promises.

This website is designed to call Hispanics to action via the power of the Vote.

This November 4th, 2014, we need you to stand and deliver your vote. The country our patriotic parents and grandparents fought for, is being dismantled by the Liberal, Progressive Democrats determined to "rebuild America."

I can promise, their version of America is not the utopia they are selling. They want Socialism. They want to destroy our capitalist economic engine, sending us back 100 years, making us equal to other countries around the world.

I for one, will not stand idly, while they remake this country into something unrecognizable. I will do my part, and I hope you will too.

Immigration / Border PLan

Secure the Border

Using all resources at our disposal, Texas should, with or without help from the Federal Government, secure our southern border and reduce the flow of illegal immigration. (80% Secure)

For those already here Illegally

Create a Documentation plan in which we identify those living in America Illegally. We must separate the good from the bad.

Give 4 year period where all those here illegally, can become registered with: Biometrics Testing, Residence verification, employment info, background check, criminal history. All of which are paid for by the applicant.

Applicants to not gain citizenship at this time, rather, they gain legal status and can work, live and pay taxes like everyone else.

Applicants will go to the back of the line when trying to gain permanent status or citizenship. They will not jump ahead of those who followed the law.

Applicants will be assessed a fine of $2,500 per individual, or a Max of $7,500 per family.

After 4 year period of documentation, any person not registered, will be immediately deported if found or discovered.
