Fewer guest workers mean more unauthorized immigrants. We just have to look back to the Bracero program to see this relationship.   Read more »

Don’t Settle For The Quick And Easy Answer on Immigration

Texas faces immigration problems that too many Republican voters view solely through the spectrum of catchy phrases and bumper sticker slogans when they think about solutions.
