Illegal Immigration is a HUGE issue in Texas. We have La Raza (The Race) type progressive Hispanic Legislators in office along with Hispanic legislators who were once Illegal Aliens. I will not call them “Undocumented Immigrants” as the media likes to use.
My question is if people in a group named “La Raza” (The Race) call you a racists because you point out that legislation is passed or not passed because of the Latino Agenda put forth by those who are not interested in securing our borders and holding Mexico accountable for not providing a safe and secure country for their own people, are you really a Racist? Who is actually making it all about race, and who is the REAL RACIST?
Comments from Texas Law Makers with the “Latino Agenda” in mind. Not the American agenda in mind.
A Senate hearing on the bill is scheduled Wednesday in the Committee on Transportation and Homeland Security.
Hispanic lawmakers in the Senate, all of them Democrats, predict that a floor vote sometime in the next few days could be one of the chamber’s most divisive and emotional in recent memory.
“Why don’t they just have a law to bring out the German Shepherds, bring out the fire hose,” said Sen. Mario Gallegos of Houston. “Let’s go back to the Jim Crow days. Why don’t they just put that in there? Let’s go. Let’s get it on. That sanctuary cities bill is the most hate-mongering, racial bill that I’ve ever seen out there.”
Perry spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger said the bill only gives police the option to ask about immigration status.
“Without that discretion, they don’t have the tools to do their jobs effectively and to keep our communities safe from those who would do us harm,” Cesinger said.
Sen. Leticia Van de Putte of San Antonio, leader of the Senate Democrats, says several Hispanic lawmakers have family histories that stir up strong emotions about the bill:
Van de Putte’s grandmother fled a revolution in Mexico as a child and never became a U.S. citizen.
U.S.-born Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa was 5 when he and his mother, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, were picked up by the border patrol in a tomato field, driven across the border and left there. They lived in a small room off the back of a bar for a year in Reynosa, Mexico.
“It’s something I’ll never forget, being placed in the paddy wagon,” Hinojosa said.
Sen. Jose Rodríguez of El Paso, worked alongside illegal immigrant farm workers while growing up and used to shout warnings whenborder patrol agents were spotted.
Rep. Ana Hernández Luna of Houston gave an emotional speech on the House floor this month about how she and her family lived in fear they would be found out and deported before she became a U.S. citizen at age 18.
Hinojosa said he could be a target for an immigration check if stopped by police.”
“On May 9th 2011, Texas State Representative Ana Hernandez Luna stood before the State House and told the world her illegal immigration story in an attempt to protest the “sanctuary city” bill and to put a human face on the illegal immigration issue.”
Just like Catholics like to glamorize the Kennedy’s just because they are Catholic and go to mass every Sunday, Hispanics are so accustom to our good will and charity they do not hold Mexico accountable for providing a safe and secure homeland for their own people. Moderate and Conservative Republicans use the emotional argument as well not to get anything done with actually securing our borders. In Texas why is that? It is because one of the highest donors to the Republican Party is Bob Perry who has a vested interest in cheap labor. Hispanic lives are lost and destroyed because they are being used by Progressive La Raza Liberals and “Rino” Republican for their own agendas.
So what is the result. Good People are labeled as Racists when their intention is to expose the truth and save Hispanic lives, and to hold Mexico accountable and to protect US citizens from invasion by criminals.
Republicans such as Rick Perry should stand with Conservatives and demand the Sanctuary Cities Bill be passed.
Vital Immigration Bills for Texas & Gov. Perry if he intends to run as President and get the support of Conservative Texans!
1. Texas must pass strong anti-Sanctuary Cities (currently SB 9 & HB 9) this session. Basically law enforcement must be able to inquire as to legal status when they come into contact with anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally
2. Texas must pass a strong e-verify bill that does not provide for monetary penalties (preempted to the Feds) — we can only take away business licenses. Since the Supreme Court has just upheld AZ’s e-verify portions of SB 1070, it is time for Texas to jump onboard and end the magnet of jobs.
3. Texas must know how much illegal aliens are costing the tax payers in Texas before we can have an honest/intelligent debate on this subject. Texas legislators are being asked to vote on immigration bills that they have absolutely no clue as to true cost. How can they vote, not knowing the facts re: the cost of the Texas illegal alien population and WHY are taxpayers not allowed to know what that cost is?
Rep. John Zerwas introduced HB 655 this session (and a similar bill in 2009) which would require state agencies to report the cost of services provided to illegal aliens in Texas. HB 655 actually made it to the floor for debate/vote but it was postponed and we have no idea why. That one bill is key to cutting the budget in Texas since illegal aliens access our entitlement services using fake ID’s. The Democrats always say that illegal aliens are good for the Texas economy. Of course, no one has the real numbers because no one is supposed to collect the data. If the Democrats are correct, you would think they would be eager to get that info documented and they should be the first in line to vote for this bill!! Neither side wants to reveal the true cost because they know voters would be out in the streets & up in arms if they knew. Illegal Immigrants Bankrupting Rural Texas Counties
Perry said on Neil Cavuto around 7:40
“Mexico is our #1 trading partner with Texas.” If we are trading with Mexico why are we not holding them accountable for not providing a safe and secure country for their own citizens?
The result of Perry and Rino Republicans not doing everything possible to secure Texas borders and to push the Sanctuary Cities bill through in Special Session once again we will have results like this…….
Hispanic lives Lost and Destroyed. In addition America is being destroyed from within by politicians and progressive Liberals.
A sobering excerpt from an astonishing documentary on border security and illegal immigration…BORDER. The Rape Tree by Coyotes
If you knock on my door I will open it, feed and welcome you. If you break through the window you are a robber and I will defend my home. That is what illegal means. Why should we not enforce them to protect the citizens of the United States. It really is that simple.

**IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO KNOW WHEN THE HEARING WILL START, BUT AS OF NOW: Since the legislative website states that the House won’t go into session until 2:00 and there are only a few bills on the agenda, we believe the hearing will likely not start before 4 or 5:00.

IF YOU ARE TESTIFYING, OUR BEST GUESS IS THAT YOU WILL PROBABLY WANT TO BE THERE BY 4:00 or 5:00 PM. The earlier you turn in a witness card, the earlier you will be able to testify.
