Illegal immigrants on councilís agenda

LEAGUE CITY — The City Council is set to consider a resolution that would refuse any federal directives to process or house undocumented immigrants in League City. A recent influx of undocumented children arriving in the U.S. has reignited the immigration debate at a national and local level. The resolution, proposed by Councilwoman Heidi Thiess and Councilman Dan Becker, contends that an increasing population of undocumented minors poses a threat to students’ education and residents’ health. The “increasing volume of illegal aliens is already bankrupting some cities and counties” in Texas, according to the proposed resolution. The proposed resolution calls for city officials to deny any federal “requests or directives” to establish a facility to house, process or detain anyone in the country illegally, “designated as ‘refugee’ or otherwise.” Citing a “potential threat of communicable diseases reported to be prevalent,” among undocumented immigrants, the resolution would also authorize city agencies to use “police power in any manner necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of League City.” It also asks the state to take legislative and executive action to address the influx of undocumented immigrants, including additional resources for Border Patrol and enhanced human trafficking laws. More than 50,000 unaccompanied minors have entered the U.S. from the border with Mexico since October, according to estimates from government officials. Most of the children are from Central American countries such as Guatemala. Last week federal authorities relocated some detained undocumented immigrants to the Houston area. The Galveston-based Children’s Center appeared on a list of suggested locations where undocumented children could find assistance in the Houston area. No League City locations were on the list.

A judge is going to throw this out.

It’s racist to expect brown people to follow the law. :)

The City Council is set to consider a resolution...

If this weren't all so tragic, that would be laughable. The Federal Empire cares nothing about what an entire state might say. A city council resolution means so much less.

The council might as well pass a resolution requiring Obama to unseal his college records.
