About us

Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance
(RITA)

The Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance (RITA) is a multi-sector statewide network dedicated to building support for comprehensive immigration reform. RITA’s goal is to present a common, pro-reform Texas voice and educate Texas elected officials about the need to fix America’s broken immigration system with fair, humane and sensible policies that foster America’s strength, security and prosperity.

RITA members are proud Texans from Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Brownsville, El Paso, San Juan and Harlingen. They believe that Texas should be front and center in the debate over immigration reform.

RITA members are asking for immigration legislation that would: Provide a pathway to citizenship; keep families together; respect human and civil rights; foster community security; establish a responsible and accountable border policy; support immigrants’ integration; develop a practical system for future workers; and address the root causes of migration.

Immigrants in Texas represent 16 percent of the population, more than the national average of 12.5 percent. These men, women and children may not have been born in Texas, but they are proud Texans just the same. They are hard-working and law abiding families. Some of them are forced to live in the shadows by a broken immigration system that keeps them from contributing fully to their adopted country.

The United States and Texas need a comprehensive immigration reform in 2010. It’s good for the economy, good for security and good for families.
