Matt Beebe, is the true conservative running to represent District 121 in the Texas House of Representatives. Matt is running in the Republican Primary to defeat the incumbent, Joe Straus.
Matt has a passion for conservative values. He believes strongly in limited government, fiscal responsibility, the rule of law, and having a respect for life. For Matt these are more than just talking points they are a part of who he is in everyday life.
My statement on Illegal Immigration:
It has become crystal clear why attempts to battle illegal immigration have consistently failed during the Joe Straus era. In a San Antonio Express News candidate interview with Matt Beebe, he recently explained his perspective that State level attempts to address illegal immigration problems are not “serious and effective”. Yet he’s “positive and optimistic” and has “reason to hope that Speaker Boehner, and Paul Ryan, and their leadership team will make serious progress on immigration reform.” (This is the plan that we now understand to be essentially AMNESTY!!)
Talk about out of step with Texas Republicans! Texans – by a wide majority – want the State to step up and enact effective deterrent programs like eVerify, increase penalties for employers knowingly exploiting the problem, end sanctuary cities and the game of catch and release with violent criminals, and finally put a stop to magnets like in-state tuition discounts for illegal immigrants attending Texas colleges and universities.
The amnesty discussions taking place in Washington DC, are more likely to cause Texas Republicans to need a dose of Pepto Bismol, than they are to inspire us to be “positive and optimistic.” Joe Straus is out of step with District 121 Republicans who overwhelmingly stand against amnesty and pathways to citizenship as “solutions” to the illegal immigration problem.
