Paxton’s True Motives: Political Attacks and Crushed Futures, Despite Texans’ Desire to Protect Dreamers

Share This:

AUSTIN – The following is a statement from America’s Voice Texas Director Mario Carrillo regarding Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s latest attempt to kill the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

Ken Paxton is doing everything he can to keep Dreamers living in fear of deportation to countries that they barely remember. The vast majority of Americans, including most Texans, want young immigrants to stay and have demanded Congress pass a permanent solution. Paxton’s anti-immigrant political attacks aren’t about the rule of law but rather about crushing the futures of Texans whose only desire is to continue contributing to the state and the country they call home.
