President Donald Trump acted well within his authority in issuing his executive order on immigration, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told a federal appeals court on Wednesday.

The 9th will almost certainly rule against Trump, but the DOJ can analyze the ruling in order to craft the next EO.

Houston news tonight was lecturing us on all the positive things that illegals contribute to the city and economy. Also indicated that 41% of the population in Houston is now Hispanic. Sometimes it seems like it’s at least 91% and none of them speak English.

Haven’t seen anything that said Dumas for a long while. Used to travel with the grain industry years ago and know Dumas, Capps Switch, Etter, Gruver area well!

A guy walks into a Muslim book store.
Muslim book store manager: Can I help you, sir?
Customer: Can you show me that book that explains Trump’s policy on Muslim immigration?
Manager: KMA, GTFO, and stay out!
Customer: That’s the one, do you have it in paperback?

Paxton! Good man!

He used to attend our Allen Area Tea Party meetings years ago, before he was Texas AG.

Been a while since I pinged the list. Saw this news item and thought it would just be wrong to let it slip by.

Texas, dear Texas! from tyrant grip now free,
Shines forth in splendor, your star of destiny!
Mother of heroes, we come your children true,
Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you.
