Alonzo, Roberto R.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 01/11/2017
Oppose Anti-Immigrant Legislation
State Representative Roberto R. Alonzo met with immigrant leaders, state senators, state representatives, and immigrant allies to announce their opposition to anti-immigrant legislation, including bills to end so-called "sanctuary cities" and repeal in-state tuition for undocumented students, and their detrimental impact on communities across the state. This press conference was part of the Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance's Texas Together Campaign to reject politics of racism, division and hatred in favor of policies rooted in human dignity and rights, opportunity for all, and government accountability. Key speakers included Senator Jose Rodriguez, Senator Sylvia Garcia, and Assistant Chief Deputy Lupe Garza of the Dallas Sherif's Office, among others.
