ARLINGTON, Texas -- Renewed calls for Texas to secede from the union has led to a petition on the White House website.
A man in Arlington, Texas created the petition and more than 27,000 people have signed it. In it, the man claims Texas should be allowed to withdraw from the U.S. because we maintain a balanced budget and have the 15th largest economy in the world.
Since the petition got the signatures needed, it will now be reviewed by White House staff and forward it on to the appropriate policy experts for an official response.
There are another 10 petitions from other people in other states seeking the same option.CLICK HERE
