Immigration to be key topic of Texas GOP Convention
Posted by Staff
Texas Tribune:

With the long and contentious 2014 primary season over in Texas, it's state party convention time. And as Texas Republicans meet this week in Fort Worth to work on their party platform, immigration is set to be a key point of discussion.

Two years after approving an unprecedented change to the official state party platform that called for a national guest-worker program, Republicans are split on keeping the language. An early draft of the new platform, which The Texas Tribune obtained Wednesday, did not include the same language for a guest-worker program, setting the stage for a spirited floor debate.
