A son of Mexican immigrants, Domingo Garcia, is a self-made success earning his way to the Statehouse of Texas as an elected lawmaker, and subsequently becoming the youngest Mayor Pro-Tem of Dallas. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of North Texas and his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, he worked to protect young, undocumented immigrants known as “Dreamers” as an author of Texas’ laws, the first state in the nation to protect immigrant students.
Garcia went on to earn a scholarship to study at “El Colegio de México” or “The College of Mexico” in Mexico City, where he earned a Master’s degree in International Relations. He served as an editorial columnist and broadcast commentator, as well as a highly successful trial lawyer for thirty years. Garcia is the current National President of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) since 2018 and has been on the front lines of the civil rights battles for Latinx communities.
