Lots to cover this week in Texas politics! The Legislature is in the middle of taking up redistricting. It's all about the distinction between partisan gerrymandering (which is allowed), and racial gerrymandering (which is not) and Republicans aren't typically good at drawing the distinction.
Also the pandemic, the grid? Nah, the next big issue for Republicans has been attacking transgender student athletes. A bill just passed the Senate and is on its way to the House - quite literally a solution in search of a problem, and a red-meat distraction from critical issues at the expense of some of our most vulnerable kids.
And a crisis on our border - but a crisis for whom? Haitian refugees are seeking asylum yet horrific images of border patrol show agents on horseback using reins as whips have shocked us all. Yet another wild week in Texas - join us to learn more about how to fight back.
