Texas Fights Outloud

Commitment to Texas

COMMITMENT TO TEXAS

This week’s call to action was spurred by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s recent visit to Houston to discuss the Communist Chinese Party with Texas House GOP members, and its incursions into every facet of America—supply chains and infrastructure, intellectual property rights, media and academic propagandists. This interference touches upon key areas of commerce and infrastructure in our state identified by Texas Fights Outloud as “existential” issues—the grid, the border, and food supply chains.

CCP infiltration is aided and abetted by the Biden Administration that has dismissed espionage charges against 130 Chinese Nationals and dismantled the DOJ investigative initiative into the activities of the CCP in the U.S.

For 50 years the Chinese Communist Party has launched an assault on the American way of life,” McCarthy said at his meeting in Houston, and reported that Republicans are crafting a legislative agenda to block CCP interference in our country called Commitment to America. Here’s a link to receive more information: https://www.republicanleader.gov/commitment/

But we cannot wait for action at the federal level. In 2021 Texas passed SB 2116, prohibiting businesses from hostile countries (China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia) from gaining access to critical infrastructure. That was a start, but we need to go further, much further. Texans recognize the threat on multiple fronts and are mobilizing to take action. We need to tell our elected officials in no uncertain terms, that CCP influence that impacts our border security, our grid security, and our agricultural and food security is unacceptable and should be made illegal.

 

Several states already have in place legislation to ban foreign land ownership. Our Agricultural Commissioner, Sid Miller, is in favor of following suit. He asserts that we do not need Federal action on this issue, that “we can stop it at the state level.” My point exactly, Commissioner.

 

Let’s write letters, emails, make calls and flood the following committee members with our support of restrictions on foreign land ownership to be taken up urgently in the upcoming legislative session.

 

And let the Commissioner know you are in his corner when he says, “There’s already six states that ban this, and Texas needs to be one.”

 

 Don’t forget to tell ‘em, Texas Fights Outloud sent you.
