That bill is going nowhere it is unconstitutional because of the violation of the “Sumpremacy Clause”. The only decent reason for supporting this Dead Letter is to whip up support among those who do not accept this. With perhaps millions of illegals on the loose resources should not be wasted bringing up charges against TSA personnel with virtually no chance of conviction.
Perry has lots of important and constitutional stuff to spend his time on including campaigning if he has any intention of running. I suspect he is going to run and would improve the field greatly should he do so.
The “Supremacy Clause” says:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.
TSA patdowns/nude scanners are not a law made pursuant to the Constitution, so the Supremacy Clause does not apply in this case. That doesn’t mean the Federal government with the aiding of the Federal judiciary won’t try to declare Texas’s proposed statute unconstitutional, but unless the Constitution was a willful surrender to the whim of Federal bureaucrats, that doesn’t even pass the laugh test.
So your saying the TSA is acting constitutionally when they put their hands inside the panties of a 6 year old girl that just wants to travel to Disney World?
Your view is its unconstitutional for the bill to state any person, regardless of govt employment status, who does so, without probable cause that the person being search has committed a crime, is guilty of sexual assault.
Where in the Constitution does it give authority for the Congress to establish the TSA to begin with? Congress created this monster, And the U.S. Congress can and should disband or bridle this monster.
