America is in the grip of a mindset that refuses to acknowledge the harsh realities of mass-illegal immigration. Whislt “experts” still quote decades old Census data on the amount of illegal immigrants in the US (11 million), economic institutions say that based on other data (more realistic data, as it does not rely on someone telling the truth about their immigration status o a government official) the figure is closer to 30 million and rising.
And yet the pervasive idea exists that Sanctuary Cities are not actually illegal. Failing to follow a Federal Law is a crime, not a “moral choice”, and when local law enforcement refuses to cooperate with the Federal Government on an issue that is dealt with 100% by the Federal government, they are not being heroic, they are undermining the fabric of society.
But not Texas. Not anymore. This Thursday, the Texas House of Representatives passed a new bill that will ensure that Sanctuary Cities can no longer endanger the population with irresponsible law enforcement. In a vote of 93 to 54, the House has now made it illegal for all Texas police officers to not enforce federal Law, and what’s more, police Chiefs and Sheriffs could face prison time for not complying with immigration laws.
The bill also gives a rather surprising power to policemen and women, it allows them to ask questions! Yes, it has taken a new law being put in place to allow police officers to ask someone a simple question. The question is, of course, about someone’s immigration status.
Somehow, in the mind of liberals, so-called “sanctuary cities” are not illegal. Fortunately, some sanity still exists in the United States, and the great state of Texas has decisively moved against sanctuary cities.

In one sweeping move, Texas has made it illegal for little San Franciscos or Chicagos to exist in the Lone Star State. The liberals must be panicking.
The bill, which passed by a vote of 93 to 54, gives local law enforcement a broad range of powers, including the ability to question individuals about their immigration status during traffic stops. We will finally push back against these illegal invaders.
While a full-scale attack on illegal immigration has yet to get fully started in Washington, D.C., Texas and other states are filling the gap by simply empowering local police officers and their senior officials. Finally! (via ABC 13)
For some reason, liberals and progressives often react negatively to the idea of local police officers enforcing immigration laws. The Left hates law and order.
Despite the fact that over ninety-percent of all crimes in the U.S. are handled at the local level, there are those “intellectual twerps” who demand that immigration should only be handled at the federal level. (via YouTube)
Unlike bureaucrats with badges from D.C., local law enforcement interact with their own community daily. They know when something out of the ordinary occurs in certain neighborhoods, and they know when drivers or pedestrians are acting suspicious.
Therefore, it only makes sense that police officers and sheriff’s deputies act as the frontline in the fight against illegal immigration. If it takes clearing one city at a time to stop illegal aliens from flooding the border, then so be it.
Of course, the alternative is that sanctuary cities are run almost exclusively by Democrats. In these cities, the rule of law has vanished. The Left loves lawlessness.
