Reminder: Dan Patrick authored the law that requires women in Texas to receive a sonogram and listen to a description of the fetus before having an abortion.
It should be hechos, not dichos. It’s not what you say, Senator Patrick. It’s what you do.
Standing for marriage between a man and a women doesn’t mean we’re denying rights.
That’s exactly what it means, sir.
Mr. Abbott wants to pay women in his office less than men, campaign with a sexual predator and deny choice to victims of brutal rapes and incest. If that’s your idea of protecting women… then on behalf of Texas women, I say no thank you.
That’s not liberal. That’s not conservative. It’s just dumb.
Friendly reminder: "How Texas Inflicts Bad Textbooks on Us"
Democratic congressmen from Texas have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate a raid by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office that targeted a nonprofit voter registration group.
The Dallas Morning News reported Aug. 31 on the attorney general’s criminal investigation of Houston Votes, which was accused of election fraud. The probe was closed one year later, with no charges filed.
Following the armed raid in 2010, the funding for Houston Votes dried up. Its efforts to register more low-income voters in the state’s most populous county, Harris, ended. The group’s records and office equipment were destroyed under a court order obtained by Abbott’s office last year.
The Mexican government reiterates its strongest repudiation and condemnation of the deployment of the first soldiers of the Texas National Guard, announced today by the Office of Governor Rick Perry.
Mexico asserts that it is irresponsible to manipulate the current state of border security for political purposes. It reiterates that immigration must be addressed from a comprehensive and regional perspective, with a mid-term vision and with shared responsibility, to ensure peace, inclusion and prosperity in the region.
The measure taken unilaterally by the Texas government is clearly erroneous and does not contribute to the efforts being made by our countries to create a secure border and a solution to the issue of immigration. It does not contribute to bringing our societies closer together and it opposes the principles and values by which Mexico and the United States govern their bilateral relationship.
