“Right now in Texas and along the U.S./Mexico border, children are being intentionally separated from their families, incarcerated in detention centers, and subjected to harmful conditions through no fault of their own. There is no better evidence that our immigration system is broken and the values we share are being abandoned.”

“On Thursday, I joined with Congressman Joaquin Castro, the Texas House’s Mexican American Legislative Caucus, and a broad coalition of San Antonians to protest the forced separation of families. The next day, we rallied with candidates at the state and federal level, along with local Austin activists, to protest the lack of leadership that has allowed the President to pursue these policies unchecked.”

“I’m proud to join these other candidates, activists, elected officials, and community leaders to protest the Trump Administration’s inhumane policy of ripping families apart at the border.”
