Texas Organizing Project Protests Gov. Greg Abbott at SA City Hall

Texas Organizing Project
The Texas Organizing Project, along with several local advocacy groups, rallied in front of San Antonio City Hall this afternoon, calling out Governor Greg Abbott for his immigration policies and lawsuit over President Barack Obama's immigration executive orders.

The march coincides the one-year anniversary of Obama's Deferred Action for Parents (DAPA) and his expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, both of which would have temporarily relieved deportation fears for approximately 5 million people.

According to the Texas Organizing Project, DAPA and DACA would have helped more than 700,000 Texans.

Right now, a temporary injunction stopping Obama's executive orders is heading to the Supreme Court.

The group has also called on Abbott to meet with immigrant families, but, Abbott is unlikely to do that as he is busy protecting Texas from scary terrorists by vowing to keep Syrian war refugees out of the Lone Star State.

But maybe if he did, Abbott would see that they, too, are people just like him. The only difference, is many of them are running from rampant violence and poverty.
