Donald Trump’s Threat of Millions of Deportations Will Affect Texans

Will any Republican elected officials take a stand against a cruel strategy that will impact millions of Texas families?

Frank Sharry for USA Today: “Democrats can turn immigration into a total loser for Donald Trump in 2020 — if they dare”

“[Trump] lines the pockets of his super wealthy friends, picks the pockets of ordinary Americans, and points the finger at brown and black immigrants.
