I'm Charles Foster, an immigration attorney who has worked as an advisor on U.S. immigration policy to President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. Now, I'm working on this issue with Senator Leticia Van de Putte.
Earlier today, I was proud to be with Leticia when she announced her immigration plan. Leticia's plan puts Texas first. It keeps our 1,241 miles of border secure, recognizes the unique challenges associated with the influx of unaccompanied children from Central America and maintains the strong economic relationship of over $530 million daily in trade between Texas and Mexico.
As Lieutenant Governor, Leticia will:
Secure our border by ensuring that troopers are able to focus on catching criminals, not kids.
Combat human smuggling and modern-day slavery of human trafficking.
Protect valuable economic initiatives that keep Texas globally competitive.
Texas needs a solution-oriented Lieutenant Governor who will press the federal government for reforms.

I hope you'll join me in support of Leticia's proposals that put the people and the economy of Texas first.
