RPT platform minority report filed on illegal immigration

[Ed. note ~ So these morons call themselves “conservative Republicans”? A better term might be “Official Ass Kissers In Search Of Employment”!!!]

Illegal immigration proved by far the most contentious subject of the Republican Party of Texas Platform Committee meeting on the evening of June 11 at the party’s state convention.

A minority report was filed by the adjournment of the meeting at about 11 p.m. It got 11 signatures from platform committee members, possibly setting the stage for a floor fight later today over the party‘s stance on illegal immigration.

The minority report essentially softens the Republican Party of Texas’ historically tough stance on illegal immigration. It amends the party platform’s existing language to say that the Republican Party of Texas has never supported and opposes “mass deportation.”

Under the “Illegal immigration” plank, found on page 23 of the party’s current platform, the amendment would strike: “We oppose illegal immigration, amnesty in any form, or legal status for illegal immigrants.”

The amendment would then add the following:

“We have never supported and oppose a policy of mass deportation. We support a realistic solution which secures our borders, and humanely resolves the legal status of illegal immigrants. We further recognize that any illegal immigrants were brought to this country as minors.”

The story continues …..
