    The Mississippi Federation of College Republicans (MFCR) chair announced he had resigned and “”will be changing my party affiliation to Democrat in the next few days.”

    Evan Alvarez made the announcement in a written statement, released Monday by the MFCR. In the statement, Alvarez stated that he stepped down and was switching parties because the Republican National Committee has given “too much of a voice” to “far right extremists” in Tea Party.

    “The Republican Party has allowed these groups of extremist[s] to have too much of a voice and because of that, the platform of the Republican Party has shifted too far to the right.”


    Alvarez cited concerns over the Tea Party’s position on infrastructure and immigration using harsh language:

    “”Their far right stance on immigration is not only ignorant, but it is cruel. After all our country is a nation of immigrants and should welcome immigrants from every country … The Republican Party consistently says they are trying to appeal to minorities, but this will never happen when we allow members of party to say cruel and ignorant things about Women, African Americans, Hispanics, and other minorities in our country.”


    The Clarion Ledger reports that

    “Alvarez’s resignation comes after the MFCR board decided not to remove Kolby Busby from the organization. Busby faced impeachment charges because he issues two robocalls on behalf of Chris McDaniel in the Republican Party primary and primary runoff for U.S. Senate. In the robocalls, Busby affiliated himself with MFCR, which violates the organization’s policy of remaining neutral in primaries.”


    You can read the entire statement, below, courtesy of The Clarion Ledger.

    Over the last 48 hours or so, I have been in deep thought about the future of MFCR and of the Republican Party.

    I have come to the conclusion that I no longer want to be the leader of the Mississippi Federation of College Republicans. I refuse to simply let people break the rules and think they don’t have to answer for their actions, admit they were wrong, or even apologize.

    When I ran for Chairman in the spring, I ran to be Chairman of the Mississippi Federation of College REPUBLICANS, not the Mississippi Federation of College “Tea Partiers”. Also, I believe that the Republican Party has allowed these groups of extremists to have too much of a voice and because of that, the platform of the Republican Party has shifted too far to the right in my opinion.

    For example, the drastic cuts on needed federal funding that these groups of Republican extremists support would leave society weak and crippled. Secondly, their far right stance on immigration is not only ignorant, but it is cruel. After all our country is a nation of immigrants and should welcome immigrants from every country. My father was an immigrant from Cuba and came to America in 1959 because of the freedom that this nation offers. This freedom should be available to each and every individual that wants to come work hard and pursue his or her goals in America.

    Finally, I believe the Republican Party has not done enough to put a stop to the hatred and cruel words and actions of the far right extremist in the party. The Republican Party consistently says they are trying to appeal to minorities, but this will never happen when we allow members of party to say cruel and ignorant things about Women, African Americans, Hispanics, and other minorities in our country. I simply cannot be apart of organization that have members who support these far right extremist views, much less be the Chairman of the organization.


    So in conclusion, I, Evan Alvarez, am hereby resigning my position as Chairman of the Mississippi Federation of College Republicans, as well as my membership at the Mississippi State Chapter of MFCR.

    This change is effective immediately!

    Perhaps you will be more honest in your next title.
