The debate over immigration is heating up in border states like Texas and Arizona, which are considering bills to ban cities from enacting "sanctuary policies" that discourage local police from enforcing federal immigration laws.

Witnesses testified Wednesday before a Texas Senate committee for a bill aimed at "sanctuary cities" like Austin and Houston that tell police officers to avoid determining the immigration status of those they deal with, the Houston Chronicle reported.

At least TX and AZ are being smarter than California about this. "Sanctuary cities" are tantamount to having places where misbehaving children can go and get handed a cookie.

Good. There should be no such thing as sanctuary cities in the first place. They're just as guilty of breaking the law of the land as the illegals are.
