Texas Senate passes bill on cities aiding illegal immigrants
Reuters ^ | June 15, 2011 | Corrie MacLaggan

Posted on 06/15/2011 12:56:20 PM PDT by TLI

(Reuters) - The Texas Senate early on Wednesday passed a measure pushed by Governor Rick Perry aimed at cracking down on cities that provide sanctuary to illegal immigrants.

"Drug traffickers and transnational gangs should think twice before they step foot in Texas," Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, who presides over the Senate, said in a statement. "Prohibiting sanctuary city policies will make the apprehension, detention and deportation of dangerous criminals more uniform -- keeping us all safer and Texas more secure."

The measure now heads to the House, which passed a similar bill during the regular legislative session that ended May 30. That measure died because Senate Democrats blocked it. But lawmakers are now in a special legislative session, and since different rules apply, Senate Democrats were unable to stop it this time. Both chambers have Republican majorities.

The measure would prohibit local governments from banning law enforcement officers from asking about the immigration status of people who are lawfully detained or arrested.

PERRY SHOULD PUT HIS MONEY WHERE HIS MOUTH IS AND GET THIS VOTER FRAUD INITIATIVE STARTED ASAP:

Perry needs to charge his Secy of State (or whomever handles voter irregularities in Texas) to send letters to every name on the voter rolls---requesting proof of citizenship, place of residence and name on SS# must match. Those who do not present proof will be stricken from the rolls.

Is this a trick to bolster his GOP nomination chances or is he serious about illegal problem?

If yes, I think I’m ready to join Perry bandwagon.

Illegals are well-briefed on US law WRT getting on the gravy train----most of the US tax dollars they score are sent back home to Third World hellholes where they intend to retire.......as the US govt checks keep rolling in. Illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents these "impoverished immigrants" buy from itinerant document brokers for several thousand dollars.

Illegals know their strength is is forming voting blocs to put pressure on lawmakers.They establish multiple identities that all vote. Jose Madrigal the Washington state rapist had 30 identities. Another illegal collected $3 million unemployment benefits using multiple identities.

RIDING THE US GRAVY TRAIN An illegal alien w/ wife and five children violates our borders. He gets a job mowing lawns for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that low wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, so each year, he files an Income Tax Return to get "EITC---earned income credit" of up to $3,200 scot-free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent. He qualifies for food stamps and no deductible, no co-pay free health care. His children get free school breakfasts and lunches. The kids qualify for monthly SSI checks, faking ADD; the illegal and his wife get SSI if they fake being aged, blind or disabled; SSI qualifies them for Medicare. Plus illegals don't worry about pricey car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance, and qualify for relief from high energy bills. All that is collected with one identity.

========================================

REFERENCE NOTE Earned Income Tax Credit is available only to immigrant workers who obtain legal work status. But the law allows immigrants to claim EITC for up to three years prior to obtaining that status. Workers simply file a tax return for the years in which they were not legally eligible to work in the US. The most widespread abuse stems from the requirement that children live with the worker for more than six months of the year. IRS does little to verify the claim. Many immigrants claim non-existent children, or claim children who they’ve left behind with relatives. Those with two or more children and income below $32,121 could get as much as $4,008. It is estimated that illegals received $22 billion EITC.

==================================================

NORTH BERGEN, NJ -- July 21, 2006 -- Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, L/E said. The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker.

The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the US, passports and resident alien cards, said state police. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. Authorities wouldn't identify the NJ hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution from savage drug cartels operating in the US.

The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. L/E approached the Texas brothers when they returned to the NJ hotel and questioned them separately. The Texas brothers consented to a search.

Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.

All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 fake Social Security cards. ####

WHEN WILL PERRY SPEAK OUT ABOUT THIS AFFRONT TO THE US?

FR POSTED June 10,2011---Mexico Files Brief in US Court: Utah Immigration Law Could ‘Strain Relations’

In a separate motion, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay asked to join Mexico's brief. Mexico says HB497 will have significant and long-lasting adverse impact on US-Mexico bilateral relations, and on Mexican citizens and other people of Latin American descent----including the impediment of diplomatic relations, hindering trade and tourism, and possible harassment of Mexican citizens.

Get rid of lots of illegals and the only downside would be that everyone will have to carry their US Passport at all times.

Oh, puleez. Perry was just out testing which way the wind is blowing. Yo, Ricky, you're about a couple decades late and a few billion dollars short. Remind me again who insisted on getting the DREAM ACT pushed down Texan's wallets allowing illegals to pay in-state college tuition? Who was it who pushed through the Trans Texas Corridor so illegals would have a straight shot from the border north? Oh, yeah, that was Liberal Perry. Liberal Perry is the real Governor, his alter ego RINO Perry only shows up at election time.

I have posted that the true test will be when the DOJ tries to bully itself into the business of Texas. Then we will see what Gov. Perry is really made of.

This special session has produced several items that are bound to give litttle Ø'Bammy and Holder a severe case of the "redazz."

Step down from the Perry bandwagon. This is nothing. He’s not in the least bit serious about illegals. It won’t be enforced. Walk a couple blocks from his office and you’ll find yourself in East Austin (Mexico del Norte).

The language of these headlines (both local and national) are a$$backwards. The legislation is against cities that support amnesty.

The Houston Comical had a headline a few weeks back indicating Democrat “opposition” to sanctuary city legislation. The policy is already in place in Houston and other Rat kingdoms. This would give the state power to go after such cities that encourage scofflaws and international crime.

Agreed that it's a step in the right direction, but I doubt that this measure will cause illegals to self-deport en masse.

We need a law like Alabama's to do that.

I’m still furious at him over the TTC and eminent domain. He didn’t stand with Arizona and I don’t know if he’ll even sign this bill if it passes.

The next Texas legislative session will be two months after the 2012 national election. With any luck the donks will loose any ability to block serious conservative legislation.

Also, there probably will no longer be a Holder DOJ making childish threats to our legislators.

Whoa! “Another World is possible”!?!?! The Third World?

Yes, we've seen it. That's why people escape from that other possible world and sneak over the border illegally into ours.

These dimwits need to study the 20th century. Find out about how their fond dreams of a Wanker's Paradise turning into the deaths of 100 million innocent people and the suffering of who knows how many hundreds of millions more.

They are correct, another world IS possible. It's best to avoid that world like the plague that it is!

“Moderate” is a stretch. “Politician” yes for sure. He will stay on the right now that election is over because it’s highly unlikely he will run for gov again where he needs to dance to the middle.

He’s loving the attention he’s getting from Rush and the press, but those of us that know him best aren’t super enthused with him. Re: Arizona support, Trans-Texas, vaccinations of young girls. But he sure talks a good game.

Dewhurst is trying to act like a right-winger now too. Too late! He’s a real jerk who’s trying to become our next US Senator. Hopefully, Poe, Smith, Williams, or Abbott can cut his @$$ off at the pass.

But, all in all ending the sanctuary cities bill is a good thing, even though enforcement may not be prevalent.

This is like whack-a-mole. Texas passes a tough immigration law, and all the illegals stampede to another state. Maybe the entire south can push all the illegals into New York and watch the state go bankrupt.

Not just Perry FYI. A new State Senator ( Brian Birdwell ?) tried to get it repealed this year and couldnt even get a VOTE on it in the Texas Senate. Other states have moved against it, I am not sure why Texas keeps it. Another case of our GOP leaders not wanting to tick off the Hispanic vote.

This is a good thing. I have a hard time understanding why legal citizens of the U.S. who are from Mexico would want illegals to be able to access the same benefits and privilege that they got legally.

I’m glad my city will not longer be a sanctuary city... it is already majority Mexican.

Of course, it will depend on what the local people actually do but it’s a good start.

Perhaps then they will at least TRY to run off the illegals.

There were at least five strong anti-illegal immigration bills hung up in the House during the regular session of the legislature this year. Perry could have demanded that they get any one of them to his desk for his signature at any time, but he never once asked for one.

In the end, he asked for (and got) the least politically unpalatable anti-illegal bill during the special session, which is the anti-sanctuary cities bill (which is sure to be hung up in the courts for a long time to come).

Perry has no political courage, and should not be at the top of any conservative American's list for president.

Two or three years ago, the local McDonald's they'd go PC or whatever and put their drive-thru menu in Spanish. Guess they got told what for because it was down within days. Of course, you can't go to the What-a-Burger at noon because the illegals congegate there and make it very plain gringos aren't welcome. It's amusing when the high school kids visit back at the middle school and make comments about how many hispanics there are there now. Considering they just left middle school 3-4 years before it shows how many have come over. When 6th graders can name gang leaders and tell of their activities proves the border is not safer than it ever has been and proves Perry et al are a bit late to the party.

Perry was one of those many Democrats which abandoned their sinking Democrat ship about a decade ago when a Democrat couldn't get elected dogcatcher of a tumbleweed town in far west Texas under any circumstances. And he is still a yellow bellied spinless Democrat at heart.

I hope Texans are smart enough to see through this ball-less soft around the middle RINO. We already have enough girly men RINO's in this race already without adding an even larger one.

Colorfully said, and your point is well made.

What's really sad about Perry, is that he became a Republican for all the wrong reasons. Unlike most people who switch, he didn't come to the right through personal enlightenment or realization.

He moved right because of political opportunism, and it still shows. I know little of his history, but I can see that in him from a mile away.
