(Austin) Grassroots/Tea Party Citizens Groups Join together to expose the Texas Leadership in both the House and Senate with regard to the deception and games during the 82nd Legislative session. They will urge Gov. Perry to “Stand With Us”. 

Jo Ann Fleming  TX Legislature’s TEA Party Caucus Advisory Committee, Executive Director (volunteer) Grassroots America – We the People and Alice Linahan Board Member of  and founder of Voices Empower have asked other Grassroots/Tea Party Leaders to join them and take a stand.

After vowing to remain actively engaged in the legislative process and to “keep a keen eye” on the workings of the 82nd Texas Legislature Tea Party Groups from across the state are well aware of what has been happening in the Texas Capital.

As Jo Ann Fleming stated, “We are alarmed and angry to hear about and witness the games being played in the People’s State House regarding the Sanctuary Cities Bill — legislation so important to Governor Rick Perry that he called it an emergency item for the regular session and subsequently placed it on the call for the special session when the legislature failed to act. We understand that the business lobby, including those supported by Mr. Bob Perry, are doing all they can to derail or gut the Sanctuary City bill.  Apparently, these special interests are eager to put their own interests above the safety, security, and financial well-being of Texas citizens and legal immigrants.”

A coalition of concerned grassroots and Tea Party groups will be voicing their opinion Monday at a Press Conference called for 10:00 am at the location of the original Speaker Showdown back in January. They will be making statements and exposing the failure of the 82nd legislative session. Key legislation must get passed in the last 3 days to rectify the situation in Texas or another Special Session must be called.

“Money talks and in Texas Republican Legislators are on the take, said Alice Linahan founder of Voices Empower.” Who will lose if the Sanctuary city bill is not passed, Texas taxpayers, Texans whose lives are lost or destroyed because we have allowed violent criminals to enter into our county illegally and Hispanics whose lives have been destroyed because we have joined them in not holding Mexico accountable for not providing a safe and secure homeland,” Linahan continues, whose hands are stained by the blood of those lives destroyed, Texas Democrats and Republicans.”

Bob Hall, Canton Tea Party leader states, “While Governor Perry should not be blamed for the House and Senate failures, he will be held accountable for stepping away from the conservative promises he made during the campaign. It seems that when the Governor turned his eye towards a run for the US Presidency his heart left Texas and the conservative values he had previously espoused. However, there is still time for Governor Perry and Speaker Straus to do the right thing for Texas.”
