AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation will host the panel “Immigration, the Texas Way” at its 11th Annual Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature on Thursday, January 10. The panel takes place at the Hilton Austin Hotel from 12:30 to 1:50 p.m., and will feature Congressman Joaquin Castro, The Honorable Brad Bailey, President and Co-founder of The Texas Immigration Solution, Brian Kennedy, President of the Claremont Institute, and Linda Vega of Latinos Ready to Vote. The event will be moderated by The Wall Street Journal’sStephen Moore. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples will deliver opening remarks.

 “As Texans look toward the big issues that will shape our state’s future, immigration is increasingly on the agenda,” said Foundation President and CEO Brooke Rollins. “We cannot leave this critical issue to Washington, D.C. Who, after all, knows better than Texas what sound immigration and border policies look like? It is in this spirit that we are proud to host this immigration panel, with such distinguished attendees from across the ideological spectrum, who have all come together to debate solutions for the Lone Star State – and America.”

The Foundation’s annual event, Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature, brings together lawmakers, policy experts, and citizens from across the political spectrum to discuss the most critical issues facing the state.
