Here's some background on Wesley Reed. Immigration certainly is a big issue in Texas and Reed is definitely vocal about it, being pro-comprehensive immigration reform:
"That said, our current system is broken and needs reform," he continued. "I sit on the House Judiciary Committee, where we’ve been actively working on concrete solutions to fix our nation’s immigration policy, piece-by-piece. Over the last several months, our committee has already made key advancements in reforming our immigration system by passing individual measures aimed at fixing specific problems with the current system."If you are looking to support Wesley Red for Congress and would like to get involved in his campaign, links are below:
The incumbent faces Democratic newcomer Wesley Reed, a 44-year-old FedEx pilot and Marine Corps Reserve member who has lived in the district for nearly six years. Reed has been seeking the support of immigration advocates, arguing that the congressman is wrong for joining his party in opposing broad reforms prior to the November general election.
"[Republicans] are more willing to adhere to tea party talking points to try to make sure they have their tea party base and support from them so they don't get any kind of primary so they can stay in office," Reed said. "But that's not what we need to do as a Congress. We need to make sure that we work together to find legitimate solutions to the problems for the people who are here undocumented."
