There sure were a lot less of them, when the few that were here, they were all in hiding.

You saw them on ranches and farms, that was about it, never coming into town alone.

You never ever got an illegal confused with an American, just because he was hispanic.

How I wish you were right but that hasn't been my experience. I know many Hispanics who don't have family here illegally but they feel a connection to the illegals because they are from the homeland of their ancestors and of the same ethnicity. Some still think that the southwest was stolen from them and because they have native indian blood that they have a right to go anywhere on this continent without papers even though their ancestors weren't indigenous to this country.

Here is a poll taken on this issue.

Most Texas govenmental agencies[cities/counties] have procedures already in place for detention officers to contact DHS officers when they suspect a person is an illegal alien.

Most counties in Texas, have a DHS/federal agent[s] presence in the courthouse/jail. Local law enforcement can ask arrested persons their legal status...till the cows come home, but it is the federal agents that check a person's legal status.

This proposal is like tying a ribbon on a old shoe box...and trying to sell it as something new.

“When you cast this vote, I hope you realize that 9 million Hispanics will take it personally,” said state Rep. José Menéndez, D-San Antonio, referring to the legal Hispanic population in Texas.
But why? I don't understand.
I thought illegals weren't only Hispanic? That's the bleat that continues to come out of the pro-illegal mouths. "It's not just Hispanics!"

Well okay then, tell that to Menendez.
