Greetings from Austin, TX

Texas is simultaneously one of the best examples of local governance and one of the worst examples of federal mismanagement. Texas boasts the leading economy among all states with unemployment rates around 5% and new job growth averaging 300,000 jobs per year. Yet Texas’ economic strength has been undercut by the executive branch’s complete unwillingness to enforce immigration regulations along the border. Texas’ impressive job growth still has to offset the 1.7 million illegal immigrants living in the state, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Texas’ situation is another example of Obama and the executive department burdening the economically vibrant states with a flood of illegal immigration that imposes serious costs to local law enforcement and community services. Breitbart News' recent report that US Border Patrol has documented a revolving door of illegal immigrant sex offenders entering the US through the Mexico-Texas border is particularly worrisome. Meanwhile, President Obama has just become a vocal advocate for a more ‘humane’ approach to immigration. ‘Humane’ for whom exactly, Mr. President? Certainly not for law-abiding Texans.
