Why Trump’s Immigration Position Is Hurting Him

Issues: 

The issue of immigration handed Donald Trump the Republican nomination. His style of communication, emphasis on the issue, and seemingly simple solutions courted, converted, or imported a core group of GOP voters to support his candidacy. Many expected Trump to moderate his immigration stance after winning the nomination, but Trump doubled-downon his anti-legal immigration position at a recent speech in Phoenix.

Texas Federation of Republican Women backs disclosure of contributors to politically active nonprofits

TFRW supports robust disclosure: “Knowing who is giving money to try to influence elections is the only way to ensure transparency and allow voters to make fully informed choices.”

Issues: 
One of the largest conservative grassroots groups in the state, the Texas Federation of Republican Women, has now come out in favor of the disclosure of contributors to politically active nonprofits.
