'Sensible immigration policy' doesn't sit well with many in Texas GOP

Norm Adams wants Texas to find middle ground in the nationwide immigration debate. The 65-year-old Houston insurance agent caused a ruckus Tuesday by presenting his "sensible immigration policy" to Texas Republican Party faithful gathered in Dallas to prepare for their state convention. His proposal is designed to secure the borders, deport noncitizens with violent records and give visas to illegal immigrants, who would pay taxes at a higher rate than citizens. In the process, he said, Republicans might regain countless Hispanic voters who shifted to the Democratic Party.
