Just two years old, RITA members have already had a major impact on the Texas state legislature and the national immigration

debate. Photos: 1. The day after she voted to block “sanctuary citites” in the regular session, Sen. Wendy Davis is surrounded by grateful commuity members outside the Texas Senate Chamber. 2. Father Steven Jasso of All Saints Catholic Church at a press conference at the end of the special session. He led his congregation in fasts, vigils and prayer during the session. 3. Various faith groups are represented in RITA’s membership, seen here at a February 2011 march against anti-immigrant laws in Texas. Three thousand people attended the march. 4. A young boy displays his homemade sign at the June 15 rally on the Capitol steps. When it seemed that “sanctuary cities” was going to pass, more than 500 rallied and filled the Capitol Rotunda. Buses from El Paso, Laredo, Dallas, Fort Worth, the Rio Grande Valley and Houston joined activists in Austin for the event.
