Death at the Border

What to Know: Because of President Biden’s immigration policies, a record number of migrants are dying at the southern U.S. border.

The TPPF Take: The southern border is ruthlessly ruled by the Mexican criminal cartels, which exact a price from everyone who attempts to cross.

“Until we decide to truly secure the border, migrants themselves will continue to be just a commodity to the cartels, and inevitably, the collateral damage,” says TPPF’s Greg Sindelar. “They deserve better. They deserve real compassion — and that’s not open borders.”

The Warm California Sun

What to Know: California is struggling through a heat wave that has strained its power grid—which relies heavily on renewable sources of energy.

The TPPF Take: California has prioritized green energy at the expense of reliable energy, and this is how that ends.

“California is America’s largest importer of electricity,” notes TPPF’s Chuck DeVore. “The Golden State also mandates an increasingly large share of renewable energy on its electric grid with a goal of 60 percent by 2030 and 100 percent by 2045, while banning the renewal of coal-fired power contracts to provide electricity to California from out of state.”

TPPF’s Parent Empowerment Tour has made its way to 14 cities throughout Texas, and it’s back in Austin for a special event called Parent Empowerment Tour – Mother’s Day Out.  All moms and grandmothers are encouraged to attend.

The Gathering Storm

What to Know: A fight is brewing over parental empowerment in the upcoming legislative session. Will Texas fund existing systems, or will it fund students?

The TPPF Take: TPPF is ready for this fight, armed with data and plans for giving parents more say in their children’s educations.

“TPPF has an aggressive agenda to ensure parents are the primary decision makers in their kids’ education,” says TPPF’s Mandy Drogin. “It starts with knowing what’s going on in the classrooms, giving parents a real voice in evaluating the quality of the material, and granting them the right to choose which educational environment works best for their kids.”
