I do think all border States are tiring of this continuous influx of aliens in our nation and the drain it imposes. How can any State balance out a budget with being overburdened? These laws will help to rid the State of those not entitled yet reaping the benefits from our country and eliminate their presence. Why would anyone not want this?

Note though that it isn't just border states that are considering implementing these laws. Last I heard Ohio, Utah and some others that are not border states are considering them. Hallelujiah!

I hope TX passes this. They should have done something LONG ago. I don't want to see a family of 7 illegal Mexican squatters anywhere on my property ever again.

Maryland! My home State! Woo Hoo!!

Quote:
State Delegate Pat McDonough, a Republican from Maryland, wants his state to pass a version of Arizona's law for the same reason, ABC2 News in Baltimore reports.
"When people come across that border, they're not going to go to Arizona anymore. They're coming here," McDonough said.

McDonough reportedly plans to send a survey to every candidate for the state's General Assembly, along with the candidates for governor, asking them whether they agree with Arizona's approach.

"We'll go on the record and this summer we're going to pretty much know who is in favor of the Arizona bill and who is not," he said.
Yes, we'll certainly know before November.

Change the thread title to "Debbie Riddle of Texas..."

The myriad of Texas Monthly issues call Debbie Riddle the donkey of the Texas Congress. She's a fool. Her Texas pledge amendment passed, but I can't think of anything else of hers that is significant that did.

And anyway the large representation of people sympathetic to illegals and the large pro business community (and the lack of problems caused by illegals in Texas, compared to Arizona - thank the Texas Rangers) means that this isn't likely to pass in Texas.

Texas is not solidly right wing - the cities are growing, and also the Rio Grande Valley and places along the US-Mexico border are also left wing.

It is my hope that all 50 states follow Arizona's example.
