    Texas, Arizona Lawmakers Considering Ban on Sanctuary Cities

    Texas, Arizona Lawmakers Considering Ban on Sanctuary Cities

    Lawmakers in Texas and Arizona are weighing bills that would prevent cities and towns from having policies that hinder enforcement of federal immigration law.

    Wednesday, April 15, 2009

    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.

    One witness, Clay Laird, had to be ousted from the hearing after telling lawmakers they "would hear from him" if they didn't vote for the bill, adding that the comment was "promise written in blood," the Chronicle reported.

    Laird had testified earlier that his elderly mother was raped and killed more than 20 years ago by a former Texas inmate freed by court order because Texas prisons were overcrowded.

    The Texas hearing came a day after the Arizona House tentatively approved a similar measure to prevent cities and towns from having policies that hinder enforcement of federal immigration law, according to AZ Central.com.

    Lawmakers passed a House bill on a voice vote, and were due to give it final consideration as early as Wednesday before advancing it to the Senate, the Web site reported.

    Texas Senate Bill 358 from the Houston Chronicle.

    Arizona House Bill 2331 from AZCentral.com.

    I really wish Mexifornia would do the same. I would love to see the look on Tony's face the day they pass such a law. There are streets in LA that if you step across the street you are killed. I live close to San Bernardino, which in another sanctuary city. They seem to take over the downtowns of small cities. We had a beautiful downtown until they took over. Now, no one goes there except the Mexicans. I hate the graffiti they write all over the city. They are turing these towns into third world standards.

    The purpose of their graffiti is to tell everyone that it is their territory and no one else is welcome there.
