Each time you hear anyone from the State of Texas talk about immigration, or issues with immigrants, you should realize that it is just said in an effort to distract you from another, very real, issue.

For example, right now everyone should be focused on ERCOT and how they are operating our power infrastructure. We do not even know if we can bring the AC down below 78 yet, and the Governor wants to allocated nearly $250 million to fix a problem that his state does not have authority to address.

His organization and other advocacy groups said legal challenges were likely, should Mr. Abbott push forward. And in Democratic circles, the plan was mocked and condemned. In a tweet, Sawyer Hackett, a party strategist, referenced the epic winter storm that left more than 150 Texans dead and collapsed the state’s power grid, plunging millions of Texans into brutally cold conditions inside their homes.
