Democrats stand for
Democrats stand for hope, equal opportunity, and fair play. These are the values Texans share in our personal lives and the values we expect to define our economic and social policies. Texas Democrats are building a better state and a stronger nation where those who work hard and play by the rule can achieve their American dream.
- In equal opportunity for all citizens
- In rewarding honest, hard work with a living wage and in a tax system that is fair.
- In family values that are more than a political slogan.
- In quality education that gives all citizens the opportunity to reach their potential.
- In freedoom from government interference in our private lives and personal decisions.
- That individual strengths in our diverse population are a benefit.
- In security in our homes and safety on our stretts. Criminals should face swift and certain punishment.
- In separation of Church and State to preserve the freedom to pursue our beliefs.
- In a strong United States—morally, economically, and militarily.
- In common-sense reforms that give us cleaner and safer air and water

Community Fund for undocumented immigrants established by Carlos Espina and Laura Leon
Millions of tax-paying immigrants will not get stimulus checks Due to the coronavirus, thousands of workers in the Bryan/College Station area have lost their jobs. While this is hard on everyone, it is particularly tough on the undocumented workers, who are unable to claim unemployment benefits and who are not included in the stimulus bill passed by Congress.
Carlos Espina, founder of a local summer youth soccer league, and local immigration lawyer Laura Leon, along with other community members, are raising funds to help undocumented families who have lost their jobs and are struggling to meet their basic needs. Money raised has purchased and will continue to purchase $100 HEB gift cards for distribution to families in need. To kick things off, both Carlos and Laura pledge contributed $1000 to the cause. We hope you will join us. Any amount helps.
