LAREDO - City leaders in Laredo say they will not use taxpayer money to help illegal immigrants released from Border Patrol custody.
Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas said the city has to look out for its own citizens.
Laredo's position runs counter to those of cities like McAllen, which has spent thousands in tax dollars helping Central Americans released from Border Patrol custody.

A border-town mayor looking out for his citizens. How refreshing.
What a racist! Why do you hate people who don't look like you, Raul?
well there are those stupid “ministries” and “churches” who are willing to bankrupt themselves over this self inflicted occurrence of the illegal aliens...
so let them...
That Salinas character, shown above, can't be trusted...he's a DemonRAT and they're known for lying. This one statement doesn't undo the fact that the Salinas RAT opposes a secure border and is against a wall to keep the enemy invaders out. He also went to a leftist yankee college further proving he's nothing but a RAT.
Just like other cities taking in illegals. They will promise it won’t be local funds but federal funds. Because they come from different sources, right??
You can not have a welfare state and open borders. Period.
What I don’t understand is when did immigrants become eligible for government aid in the first place, let alone ILLEGAL aliens?
When my grandfather immigrated from Poland, he needed an economic sponsor so as to not become a burden of society.
Laredo is a turd-world cesspool with a crime rate in the stratosphere. Yet the Salinas RAT is practicing the art of self-delusion by proclaiming his city as "safe". It would be funny if it weren't so tragic.
Is Laredo a sanctuary city?
If only they did that and no more. But they spend all the money fedzilla gives them (stolen from legal taxpaying American citizens), then they dump the illegals on the dole, to live on yet more earnings stolen from legal American taxpaying citizens.
Well, that sums it up then.
God bless Mayor Salinas!
I spoke to a Vietnamese lady who owns a nail salon in Southlake, TX not long ago. She was telling me her life story about how she came here from Vietnam.
She and her family came here legally. They each had only the clothes on their backs. The government got them an apartment in Houston for one year and then told them they were on their own. She and her family had to pay back every dime, which they were glad to do for being allowed the honor of living in the U.S.
She is so angry about illegal immigration and the handouts.
That is one of the few things I’d be happy to pay taxes for.
One of the few things that is a constitutional use of taxpayer money.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I misread it... I thought he wasn't going to raise taxes to DEFEND THE BORDER and enforce the laws.
Yes, it certainly is. That leftist mayor of Laredo, Raul Salinas , also pushes the sodomite agenda as well as siding with the criminal invaders.
The Obama administration and 60 mayors, including Houston Mayor Annise Parker and Lardeo Mayor Raul G. Salinas, have denounced the House version of the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization for failure to include provisions that would better protect and serve native Americans, LGBT couples and undocumented immigrants.
That Salinas character is also a member of the racist, socialist LULAC [League of United Latin American Citizens] outfit.
Mayor Rah-ooool Salinas is on the side of the enemy. The DemonRAT has steadfastly declared his opposition to a secure border. This Free Republic thread, [Texas Mayor] Salinas resists Laredo border fence plan, reveals the plain, unvarnished truth about him and his support of criminal invaders.
This guy is starting to make me feel ill. He sounded so ... fiscally conservative.
I guess he didn’t get the check from the C$rt$ls yet
A few meaningless platitudes about low taxes isn't sufficient to be on the Lord's side. For all we know the deviants of Sodom and Gomorrah may have had low taxes but that didn't stop the Righteous Wrath of God. I have some colleagues down in the vicinity of Laredo and they've given me the scoop about the real Rah-oool Salinas. Sure, he'll utter some soothing words every now and then much like mooselimbs do with their policy of taqiyya. In short, Salinas is entrenched in the enemy camp and is associated with LULAC and other subversive outfits:
Por La Raza todo, Fuera de La Raza nada: For the Race, everything, outside the Race, nothing!
a judge will force the city to spend the money and milking taxpayers is their only source of revenue
I know a woman who owns a shoe repair shop with her husband. They are both from Ukraine and came here legally. They both worked multiple jobs and are livid when they see people coming in illegally or going on welfare when they could be working.
What this guy seems to be saying is that he will take the invaders as long as the feds foot the bill.
The guy that owns the nail shop where I go is Vietnamese. One of the biggest conservatives you would ever meet. They know what communism looks like.
Sounds like he's holding out for Federal Funds...(which can be diverted, spent on favored contractors, etc.)
