For Immediate Release
Jerry was elected to this position as a result of the recall election of Russell Pearce, and has done an outstanding job as state senator! Some very positive qualities include fiscal conservatism, limited government, and sensible positions on immigration, supporting neither mass amnesty nor mass deportations.
Jerry’s four platform planks, education, economy, budget/taxes, and immigration show he knows how to address a range of problems and not focus on a single issue to the detriment of other issues. Also, Jerry has demonstrated that he can work across the aisle as needed to solve problems, a quality that sadly is disappearing in the current political arena.
About Us – Cafe Con Leche Republicans is a national organization of Republicans who welcome “New Americans”, defined as immigrants and family of recent immigrants. Our mission is to make America and the GOP, more welcoming to “New Immigrants” through political activism, “in-reach” and education within the Republican Party, and lobbying government to adopt more immigrant friendly policies. We also seek to bring more conservative and moderate “New Americans” to the Republican Party. These efforts will strengthen the GOP, and lead more Republicans to embrace welcoming policies for immigrants and their families. We have members nationwide, with chapters in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and California. Our members and leadership are predominantly Hispanic, though we define ourselves by mission and guiding principles, not ethnicity, and we welcome all who share our goals. Our leadership is 100% Republican.
