    IRCOT Launches Radio Ads
    "QUIT STALLING" & "THEY'RE BACK"
    (Please go to source link to activate audios.)

    Dallas-area radio ad campaign urges lawmakers
    to get serious on sanctuary cities

    The Immigration Reform Coalition of Texas (IRCOT), representing a wide variety of groups and citizens calling for better protection of the U.S. border and control of illegal immigration in Texas, has launched a series of radio ads that will play in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to urge lawmakers there to get serious on eliminating "sanctuary city" policies. The IRCOT co-founding organizations are: Citizens for Immigration Reform (Dallas/Ft. Worth); Central Texans for Secure Borders (Austin/Central Texas); and Texans for Immigration Reform (Houston).

    "Gangs like MS-13 often work with Mexican cartels and are infiltrating our state and bringing the Mexican drug war to U.S. soil," said IRCOT director Rebecca Forest. "These gangs are predominately made up of illegal immigrants and sanctuary city policies are protecting their members, encouraging more drug violence and making matters worse -- not better -- for U.S. born minorities who are far and wide the biggest victims of that violence."

    Rep. Burt Solomons (R-Carrollton), House State Affairs Committee Chairman, has a number of important immigration and border security measures assigned to his committee as well as legislation to end sanctuary city policies.

    "The people of Texas have spoken clearly and this is an issue they want addressed," Forest said. "Last session, the legislature dragged its feet until it was too late. We can't afford to do that again which is why IRCOT decided it was important to let citizens know where the roadblocks are originating. Elected leaders in Texas need to remember their oaths of office and the duty they have to protect and provide for citizens, first and foremost."

    The ads began airing on Tuesday, 3/31/09 in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area on KSKY 660 AM.

    TO CONTACT CHAIRMAN SOLOMONS VISIT: www.savetexasnow.com

    Apparently, some committee Chairs have made it their mission to see that important immigration bills DIE again in committees by not giving them SPEEDY & FAIR hearings. They prefer instead to leave the gates wide open, robbing CITIZENS (residing in Texas) of not only much need jobs -- but also their safety and security.

    TELL CHAIRMAN SOLOMONS TO STOP PLAYING GAMES WITH OUR JOBS & OUR SAFETY!!!

    PLEASE ACT NOW CALL, FAX, EMAIL Chairman Solomons & forward this alert to all your Texas contacts asking them to do the same.

    Below is the email which I received from Rep. Solomons's Legislative Aide in reply to my email yesterday:

    Subject: Earlier Rescheduling of Legislation related to immigration law enforcement

    Dear xxx;

    Thank you for your email inquiry on the status of the illegal immigration legislation in the House Committee on State Affairs. The Committee is comprised of fifteen members and oversees a wide range of general public policy issues affecting the State of Texas including, but not limited to, electricity, telecommunications, state agencies, as well as the illegal immigration issue. Currently there are 300 bills that have been referred to the House Committee on State Affairs, and we anticipate that number to continue to grow daily.

    To answer your question, the Committee staff is reviewing all the filed bills this session that are related to illegal immigration in order to obtain a complete picture of what is being proposed by a number of legislators. We are also attending to all the other bills in the Committee. As Chairman Solomons stated before, we will have a public hearing in April on illegal immigration.

    Chairman Solomons supports the discussion and passage of properly drafted and constitutional legislation addressing the issue of illegal immigration. Last session, his “eligibility of work

    You should hear some of the crap that committee is handling.

    Teens using tanning beds and regulating home owner associations.

    That's what they are doing. The Texas State Affairs Committee is parenting and settling petty arguments, while avoiding an overwhelming state issue of illegal immigration.
