Is anyone else weary of hearing the liberals demand that illegal immigrants deserve the same rights and opportunities to pursue happiness in a country with which they do not belong?
Thankfully, many of you are as beyond frustrated with their rhetoric as I am, or else we wouldn’t have President Trump in office right now, working hard to make things right again for legal American citizens.
Well, there is a state that is following President Trump’s example, and they are helping Trump with his plan to ultimately end every sanctuary city in this country!
The Texas Senate on Tuesday night preliminarily approved an anti-“sanctuary cities” bill punishing local governments that don’t cooperate with federal immigration authorities, as state Republicans look to further crack down on an issue already championed by President Donald Trump…
Republicans swatted down a parade of amendments meant to weaken the bill and other fierce objections from Democrats, who didn’t have the votes to stop it. A protest from demonstrators who had previously threatened to descend on the Texas Capitol and voice loud opposition didn’t happen, and a long day and evening in the Senate stayed eerily quiet.
Things were different last week, when hundreds of people spent 16-plus hours pleading with a Senate committee not to advance the bill but were ignored in a post-midnight vote that set up Tuesday’s floor debate. Republicans muscling the measure toward final approval say it’s too urgent to delay.
The term “sanctuary cities” has no legal definition, but Republicans want local police to enforce federal immigration law as part of a larger effort to crack down on criminal suspects who are in the United States illegally. The issue has become contentious in states across the country, especially with Trump promising to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, wall off the entire U.S.-Mexico border and impose strict federal immigration policies.
Although we shouldn’t have to even create these laws at all, unfortunately with eight years of Obama, we now have to undo all the immigration damage that he has done. Hopefully soon we can return to a rule of law mindset, and that federal authorities have the ability to enforce the immigration laws that are already in black and white, and local authorities can do their best to assist them.
