SB4-Sanctuary City ban

#1

Post by sbrawley » Wed Feb 08, 2017 8:24 am

In case you wanted to know, SB 4 passed the Senate last night and is enroute to the house.

"SB-4 passed the Texas Senate on Tuesday night, 20-11. More than 35 amendments were presented to the bill which was authored by Lubbock State Senator Charles Perry. A key amendment, which Perry also proposed, was passed down party lines. It makes not honoring an I.C.E. detainer a crime and allows for an elected official who doesn’t comply to be removed from office."

Checking the Texas legislature website, there appears to be 4 companion bills currently in the House. Is this what happens when the governor declares an emergency item or it normal to have multiple companions?

The companions literally don't matter. The SAME BILL has to pass both houses, period. SB4, has to pass on the house to become law. Companion bills simply show that there is support in both houses.

Personally I think the mayor, city manager, police chief of every sanctuary city should be taken into custody by federal marshals for harboring fugitives from justice, when the mayor of San Francisco, Chicago, spokane, etc. Find themselves sitting in a federal facility the whole sanctuary city thing will die a quick death!

I hope it passes and they will enforce it. I would like to see the Dallas County Judge either crawfish or having lunch at Lew Sterrett Jail. They just voted to continue to be a sanctuary County, but they gave it a new twist. Fox 4 Dallas reported it as, "Dallas County passes resolution welcoming unauthorized immigrants."

Currently discussing a proposed amendment to allow LE to develop policies to exclude vets and active duty military from being checked for their status. "rlol"

Amazing....If you manage to get through an enlistment as an illegal alien and get an honorable discharge, the Feds should give you legal status just for being able to fool them. "rlol"

Are they are talking about excluding illegal aliens who serve or served in military or first responder positions? Wouldn't the illegal alien have to lie about their status to join or become a first responder? I think they talking because they like to hear their own voices.

If they vote against the amendment, they would be voting against illegal aliens not against veterans, what kinda poop are they spreading.

If you vote against it you're voting against veterans. That's what they are trying to paint.
