Statement on HCR88

The Latino National Republican Coalition of Texas (LNRC) applauds the work of members from the Hispanic Republican Conference of the Texas House for filing House Concurrent Resolution 88 (HCR 88) relating to immigration. We look forward to the progress of this resolution calling for national action on an issue of great significance and broad implications for our national security and economy.

The LNRC of Texas has worked diligently in engaging Hispanics for the Republican Party of Texas and we understand the need to solve this issue. HCR 88 is a responsible and sensible approach to discussing immigration by taking a critical step forward in reminding the federal government of their responsibility to the states in addressing this issue. We believe this House Resolution exemplifies the attributes sorely needed for today’s discussion on immigration.

We are proud to have fellow Republicans leading on this issue and crafting this message that is vitally important to Texas and the nation. We have always been a model state and it will be Texas who will lead on providing leadership and solutions to a state and national issue, immigration.


At Somos Republicans, the largest organization of conservative Hispanics in America and the most successful promoter of the "Compact with America" upon which HCR 88 is based, we find it interesting that Mr. Temo Muniz and his LNRC, who are on the record as being fully in support of hard line enforcement only nativist agenda, such as that in Arizona, are now trying to take credit for our work. 

It was Somos Republicans Texas that first proposed and promoted the "Texas Compact" in the Texas legislature and know that it formed some of the founding principals of Texas Hispanic Republican Conference.  We were content to support this activity discreetly but now that Mr. Muniz, who has never differed with LNRC national for its support of Arizona's hard line nativist approach, would now try to steal our thunder. 

It comes as no surprise to us that Temo will attempt to take credit for our work as this is not the first time.  Even as I write this, Somos Republicans and Somos Republicans Texas (we have 20 state chapters already) is hard at work promoting HCR 88 across the nation as we have done so with the "Compact with America."  We have legislators in Texas and news media nationwide picking up our press release in support of the resolution. 

Pathetic, typical, but still pathetic Temo.
