Sen. Pete Flores (R-Pleasanton) and Reps. Mayes Middleton (R-Wallisville) and Tan Parker (R-Flower Mound) each released a statement rejecting the conservative LIBRE Initiative’s endorsement. All three cited the group’s support for amnesty for undocumented immigrants and emphasized they did not seek the group’s endorsement.

“I have a long track record of fighting against any effort to grant amnesty to those who entered America illegally,” Flores said in a statement. “I oppose any effort to establish programs that create shortcuts or allow certain people to jump the head of the line.”
