Here's the next state in the queue considering a bill similar to the AZ bill.
This lawmaker plans to re-introduce a bill in Jan 2011 when the legislature meets. She did once before but it got no support.

Tomball representative to introduce anti-immigration bill in January legislative session - 4/28/10 - Houston News - abc13.com

snippet:
"Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle says her top priority as a legislator is to keep Texans safe.
To that end, she will reintroduce legislation aimed at identifying illegal immigrants through the help of local law enforcement. Riddle's bill will be similar to HB 49 that she introduced in the last legislative session. It did not gain any support."

How'd do you keep citizens safe by taking local police away from the job of policing?

They will still do their job. If you don't understand the AZ bill then you won't understand this.

Go read up on the AZ bill. The police are not becoming border patrol or ICE agents.

If you get stopped for a police reason and cannot produce ID then you are not just "let go" as you are today.

In fact to get a driver's license in Texas you need to show your birth certificate and SS card. Yeah..totally terrorist action in only wanting to serve legal citizens...but that's the law and they are trying to uphold it in spite of the lack of Federal Government action.

Good for Texas. It's about time states started taking matters into their own hands when they cannot get the action they want from the federal government.

Come on now. You're not helping promote the hysteria surrounding the AZ bill. We all know that concentration camps are being setup and ALL Latinos will be rounded up and shipped back to Mexico regardless if you're a citizen or not.

Blacks and Asians are next.

Rick Perry will never sign it. He panders to the illegals.

He has already stated that illegal aliens are a federal problem, not the State of Texas.

Well..his opponent, the Dem White..won't utter a word either way and will not take a stand on it.

Notice how this is a hot potato for either Dems or Repubs ???
And I wouldn't count out Perry just quite yet..the budgets are becoming quite strained and Texas is footing the bill for illegals and the Fed is not reimbursing us.
