Wow. Talk about taking a pay cut.
This doesn't surprise me as I stated before that this exact thing would happen. All the states around it are passing these laws and texas is taking the hit.

I live in Alabama and I wrote an email to one of my state representatives and asked him if Alabama was going to come up with any legislation to deter illegals. He wrote me back and said they will be voting on some very tough legislation soon.

What I find very interesting after re-reading the original link is why the illegals from Arizona are heading over a 1,000 miles to Houston/Dallas yet few, if any are even bothering with Ye Olde Sanctuary State of California-------which is much closer to Phoenix.

Don't forget Illinois and Maine. they're both Sanctuary states too.

Sigh, I just knew they'd be heading here and our guv, Rick Perry, will do precious little about it. HOWEVER, TEXANS take care of their own and WILL do something about it -- just like the guy who shot the illegals who were robbing his next-door neighbors property did!

I know that when I've hired contractors in the past year to do some work at my house, one of the first things they told me is they do NOT hire illegals and they introduced me to their crews. People have been asking, they said. So, government be darned, we'll take care of things our own way. Illegals will move on if they aren't hired for jobs and fear they'll be shot when they engage in crime!

If you click the link at the bottom you'd find the same thing was said.

Hey AB

I wondered where they are were going? Buddy of mine in NC said to me they are leaving in droves.

Guess if they all head to Texas we can close down Texas, lock up the borders, surround them and DEPORT real quick !!

Run illegals run, pile up in Texas and destroy Texas so they will finally wake up.

This may work out better then one of their rallys!!!

Pile them up and arrest them ALL, have B52 ready to dump them over the hills.

Feed them, give them a backpack with some water and drop them from 10000.

AB, your were right, they are running like crazy.

Anyone hiring them should be locked up or send back with them.

MESSAGE IS CLEAR, you are not wanted here anymore. LEAVE !!
