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.”

Parker said in a statement that voters “know my record and will not be deceived” about his stance on border issues. “Any attempt to grant amnesty is in direct violation of my core conservative values,” Parker said. “I am 100% against any effort to establish programs that create shortcuts or allow certain people to jump to the head of the line.”

According to its website, the LIBRE Initiative supports a “permanent solution for Dreamers,” increased access to legal immigration channels and “a system that recognizes contributing members among the undocumented population, affording individuals an opportunity to come out of the shadows and get right with the law.”
