sounds like a good idea.

Quote:
A measure filed by State Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) would allow any law enforcement agency that has custody of an illegal immigrant to take the illegal to 'the office of a U.S. Senator or Representative' and leave them there.


LOL

Quote:
1200 WOAI news reports the measure also allows county sheriff's deputies or city police officers to 'request an agent or employee of the United States Senator or United States Representative to sign a document acknowledging the release or discharge of the illegal immigrant at the senator's or representative's office.
Quote:
Kolkhorst concedes the measure is a 'cry for help' to convince federal officials to secure the border, but she says she is serious about getting the measure approved by the Legislature.
Quote:
The measure doesn't specify what the Senator or Congressman is supposed to do with the illegal immigrant, but calls on the law enforcement agency to 'maintain a record of each illegal immigrant released or discharged who is not transferred to the custody of the Untied States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.'
Quote:
Several thousand people are expected to descend on the state capitol today to denounce the measures, and to call on the federal government, not the states, to handle matters related to immigration.

Wouldn’t that be a hoot? Unfortunately, the pandering politicians would probably invite them to dinner, and let taxpayers pay the tab.

Now that is an idea. I say they should be delivered hog tied so that they don't get away from the congressmen/woman. Nothing else has worked, lets give this a try.

It makes a degree of sense. However, rather than dropping off the criminals at their offices, I'd have them dropped off at their homes, on the front porch.

The White House lawn would be even better.
