League City's recent resolution rejecting refuge for Central American migrant children violates two landmark civil rights acts, a complaint to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development alleged this week.

Other Houston-area jurisdictions may face similar opposition as their elected officials fight potential federal efforts to house undocumented minors in their communities.

On Tuesday, Brazoria County commissioners unanimously passed a resolution urging the federal government to solve the Texas-Mexico border crisis and "cease relocation" of unaccompanied immigrant youngsters in the state.

Also on Tuesday, two different measures to prevent unaccompanied child migrants from being housed in Smith County - in East Texas, where Tyler is the seat of government - failed. But closer to Houston, Montgomery County's attorneys are reviewing a proposed resolution on the same topic.

League City attracted national attention after the city council passed its resolution on July 8.

That's why Texas Appleseed, a social justice organization, and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, a civil rights group known as MALDEF, on Monday asked HUD to investigate the city of roughly 90,000 residents, which receives federal housing money.

League City is more Anglo, more educated and more affluent than other areas in Houston and Texas.

how many Hispanic-related 'civil rights' and 'social justice' groups do we have in the USA - all collecting government grants to sue the American people?

Was it a month or three ago that the admin was lamenting publically that there wasn't enough diversity in the suburbs and they weren't sure how to deal with the problem?

As neighborhoods degrade from an influx of criminal Hispanics, blacks will move in as the whites move out trying to distance themselves from the crimewaves to ensue and voila, suburbs abandoned to ethnic groups - as planned.
