It’s about the rule of law, not immigration

leave a comment »



Our legislature in Texas took a big step forward in reminding everyone that it’s about the rule of law not immigration.   

It went down along party lines:  

After more than 16 hours of debate, the Texas House of Representatives early Thursday morning tentatively gave a nod to the latest version of a Senate bill that would ban “sanctuary” jurisdictions in Texas.

The 93-54 vote fell along party lines and came after one of the slowest moving but most emotional legislative days at the state Capitol.

The vote came at 3 a.m. after state Rep. Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton, successfully made what some Democratic members called an unprecedented motion to group all of the remaining amendments — more than 100 — and record them as failed. He said he made that suggestion so members wouldn’t be forced to pull their amendments. The motion passed 114 to 29, with about a third of Democrats approving the measure.


It’s a shame that an issue about enforcing the law should go down along partisan lines but that’s reality.

Nevertheless, the Democrats are completely tone deaf on this issue.    

They have invested themselves in “the sanctuary city” movement. It is a huge political mistake, as we saw recently in a Pew Poll:   

An overwhelming majority of Americans believe that cities that arrest illegal immigrants for crimes should be required to turn them over to federal authorities.

The poll shows that President Trump has broad public support in his effort to crack down on sanctuary cities.

A survey from Harvard–Harris Poll provided exclusively to The Hill found that 80 percent of voters say local authorities should have to comply with the law by reporting to federal agents the illegal immigrants they come into contact with.

That 80% means that there are a lot of Democrats joining in.

Since election night, the Democrat Party has gone mad.   

First, they spent all of their ammunition fighting Neil Gorsuch and lost the 60-vote option in the U.S. Senate.    

Second, they’ve now joined cities violating federal law.

Madness, madness, madness!

Did any Democrat hear the one about when to stop digging?

Crime is what happens when cities “choose” not to enforce immigration laws

leave a comment »


It is a tragic story.    A woman is killed by an illegal immigrant roaming the streets because San Francisco would rather be politically correct than protect its citizens.

This is from news reports:

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement had marked him as an ‘enforcement priority’ who should have been handed over immediately.

But San Francisco officials admitted that due to a soft policy on undocumented immigrants, they do not always comply with the requests – which in Sanchez’s case left him out on the streets on the night of the murder. “

What an outrage.   The entire San Francisco city government should be forced to explain how this criminal was walking around in the streets of San Francisco.
