The group tweeted, “No one is who they appear to be…”

They highlighted a tweet that Cotton posted on, where he expressed his happiness with meeting up with Immigration Voice, a legal immigration advocacy group.

Great to see friends from @immivoice. I’m proud to cosponsor the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. Skilled immigrants should be able to earn green cards in a timely manner, regardless of the country they came from—enabling them to further contribute to our communities.

 

The bill in question, H.R. 1044, would enable Indian nationals, among other groups, to displace American workers in the tech sector. The bill overwhelmingly passed the House. Although it has not made much progress in the Senate, H.R.1044 has a similar companion bill in S.386, which is currently facing roadblocks

That said, Cotton has reversed course —to some extent — since his 2019 legal migration boosting. A few months ago, he signed on to a letter calling for the Trump administration to suspend all new guest worker visas for sixty days and likewise suspend some types of guest worker visas for at least a year or until unemployment goes back to normal levels. Grassroots pressure is clearly making a difference, as politicians now recognize there is a strong demand for immigration patriotism.

This goes to show the importance of citizen pressure in changing elected officials’ behavior. The only way that patriotic immigration reform can be taken up by the GOP is through relentless grassroots activism. For an issue as high stakes as immigration, the grassroots must be ready to turn up the heat on politicians, no matter what they say on immigration. The failure to do so could see America radically transformed into an amorphous political blob, where traditional freedoms are no longer respected.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
