The police have the time and man power to check ID ? I doubt it ESP in poor area's where some citizens may not have ID .

That is how they did in NOLA there are many more poor there than in Corpus. They were given bracelets for animals to make sure they got to the same place and did paperwork prior to getting on busses for benefits and to let family know where you had gone...Not only do they have the time they do it regardless.

No you have to provide proof. When you evacuate because of a hurricane you take all ID papers with you so they will not be destroyed. That is hurricane basics. Illegals without ID will not be using the buses they will cramming 15 peolpe in one car and heading inland...kinda like how they came across the border.

So if you don't have proof no ID no papers you took from home what than?

The police won't let you evacuate ?

Couldn't an illegal wait till last "call" for evacuation and say I have no proof left everything at the house and NOT going back to get it.

During Dolly they didn't need busses to evac people, but they did check ID along the route. The busses are used for the medical facilities and nursing homes and other elderly with no transport. Corpus is not New Orleans and therefore the majority of the residents have some form of transportation. During Dolly an entire van of illegal’s was caught and detained...
The main thing to remember is The Texas Coast is not NOLA...during Rita the busses were used for medical/elderly not for mass exodus of residents.
You can't compare apples to oranges
No papers means yes you can evac. to a detention center where you will be dealt with later.

So a citizen without ID will wind up in a detention center ?

A citizen would not be stupid enough to evac without ID nor would they need a bus...I feel like I am on a merry-go-round. Really is it that difficult for you to understand or are you just wanting to play out the victim story for all the poor illegals? Texas has no problem with them being shipped to detention centers. We can ship them to your state of Florida and let you pay for them.

so the people who were stranded on their roof tops had all their paperwork? imagine if they decided to ask them for proof of citizenship before airlifting them?

reality is that in the time of crisis, this stuff matters very little. once they are situated somewhere, that would be the best place to verify status.
