On the Starr county investigation they said thousands and not the millions that we were expecting were found even though they only checked two court cases. That's only two, what about the rest of the land grants? Where there is smoke there’s fire and I believe all documents should be audited.

Texas law is all they recognize. Our lands were and are private property. Minerals come with it simple as that and this is not a false accusation. The proof is clear! Texas has an obligation to honor the 1846 treaty between the U.S. and Mexico.

As expected, they still refuse to believe the claims. The October 24, 2014 HB-724 Commission claim false accusations. The link below shows the first part of the 724 commission meeting held on 10/24/2014:
