Immigration is a federal function and therefore falls outside the scope of the Texas House of Representatives.

On the other hand, borders are specifically a function of the State of Texas.

I fully support open borders and believe Texas should welcome immigrants into our state. I voted in favor of, and fully support the 2014 Libertarian Party of Texas platform on the topic of borders.

The language of this platform change read as follows:

"The Libertarian Party believes in and encourages free and fair trade among nations which allows the easy exchange of currency, goods, labor, and services."
