How to Say, “Don’t Mess With Texas!” in Spanish?
By John W. Lillpop
Arizona’s SB 1070 has fostered an unprecedented outbreak of common sense and patriotism all across our nation, with at least 17 states in the process of adopting similar measures to deal with the invasion of penniless, unskilled, non-English speaking aliens across our unprotected borders.
The latest conversion to sanity is taking place in the great state of Texas where Republicans are taking the issue head on, no holds barred.
As reported at foxnews.com, in part:
“Fired-up Republican activists in no mood for compromises threw out their party chairwoman Saturday, then bucked Texas Gov. Rick Perry by pushing for a crackdown on illegal immigration similar to Arizona's new law.
In a sometimes chaotic and raucous roll-call vote, delegates overwhelmingly decided to ditch their firebrand leader, conservative activist Cathie Adams, in favor of Houston businessman Steve Munisteri. Munisteri had focused his campaign on the party's $500,000 debt, saying Republicans should be in better financial shape since they control both houses of the Legislature and all statewide offices.
The immigration proposal, a hard-line approach that Perry has said isn't right for Texas, was one of several initiatives debated as delegates wrapped up the two-day convention. The Republican Party platform is a blueprint of the policies that GOP activists want elected officials to pursue.
Delegates voted to include a plank advocating for a state law that would bar illegal immigrants from "intentionally or knowingly" living in Texas. Similar to Arizona's strict law that has sparked nationwide debate, the proposal would require local police to verify U.S. residency when making arrests.”
