The founder of TFIRE is J.C. Hernandez. He is a Mexican national who stood in line, learned English, jumped through all of the hoops, and became a legal American citizen. After all of the hassle he endured to become a legal citizen, the 1986 Amnesty Act became law. With the wave of a magic wand, three million illegal aliens were rewarded with American citizenship. How unfair!!!
So Mr. Hernandez founded TFIRE in July of 1997. Today we have statewide members and associates who are dedicated to immigration (migration) reduction and the enforcement of our laws. We are a grassroots organization that is opposed to amnesty in any form.
TFIRE is a volunteer non-profit organization that believes in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Some of our members are legal immigrants. TFIRE is not anti-immigrant; we want our laws applied to those who are not legally present.
While the primary responsibility for combatting illegal immigration rests with the federal government, there are many measures that state and local governments can take to combat the problem. Texans should not be expected to assume this already large and growing burden from illegal immigration simply because businesses and other special interests benefit from being able to employ lower cost workers.
TFIRE is taking steps to help promote legislation in the State of Texas that will stop the flow of illegal immigration, systematically collect information on illegal alien use of taxpayer funded services, and help secure our Texas borders.
We encourage all to attend our monthly meetings and learn what you can do to stop the unnecessary flow of illegal aliens into the United States.
