Tejano Land Grant Movement

The Tejano Land Grant Movement seeks immediate justice for its heirs and descendants of Spanish Land Grants in Texas.

By signing this petition we assert our belief that the United States government violates the Civil Rights of heirs and descendants of Spanish Land Grants in Texas. Furthermore, the United States government allowed Texas lawmakers to impose laws which are unconstitutional under Federal and International law.

Moving back to San Antonio,can't take Mn. weather. My parents came here for work years ago. Will need help in locating my fathers title rights. Our land was told to be at the mouth of the three rivers.
I want more information.
Descendent great grand daughter of Luis Ramirez who fought in the Civil War...I looked up my ancestors in the courthouse in Laredo, Texas. It was a nightmare of how the Ramirez' land was taken by the state of Texas...all or majority of paperwork, deeds, etc. claimed that the Ramirez died of diseases or claimed to be "lunatics". How's that for stealing blindly? Not mention that my great grand father's pension record is invisible, his parents are not be found in any searches, and my great grandmother who "owned" Benavides, Texas was made to sell for .50 cents an acre...Great job Texas...our "The Alamo" heroes, and all kaka lackies who came to make our ancestors their slaves and steal our lands by forging legal documents and driving our ancestors out like cattle! Let's not give up the movement...we have been cheated and disgraced by our own government whom our forefathers, fathers, brothers have given their lives to protect.
