"The Texas House passed HB 12, the controversial "sanctuary cities" legislation, which would prohibit cities, counties and other governmental entities or special districts from adopting a policy that prevents law enforcement from asking persons lawfully detained or arrested if they are in the country legally. Entities not in compliance could risk losing state funds."


Texas House Passes Sanctuary Cities Legislation — 82nd Legislative Session | The Texas Tribune

Another small victory!

Ha, the pro-illegals can just keep putting States on their ignore list. Eventually all States will adopt this and the pro-illegals will hopefully do the right thing and exit the Country.

From the article you posted:

Quote:
“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.
They won't take it personally if they understand that Illegal means Illegal.

If they take it personally then they need to be re-educated.

Was glad to hear about this news. It's a decent first step. Would like to see more action of course. But I'll take what I can get.

Menendez is essentially admitting that his ethnic group puts their illegal brethren above our laws then. Nice!

Plus he is an idiot. The only Hispanics who support illegal immigration are those that have family members here. By and far the majority I talk with are not on the side of illegal immigrants/
