Bills are set up to die in committee, again! Action is Needed!!

In Mexico Voting Illegally is harder than in the United States

Status of SB9 & HB9 – Anti-Sanctuary City Bills  Since the Hearing on Monday, the bills are stalled in the House State Affairs Committee.After the hearing Monday night there were not enough committee members in attendance to have a quorum — and so, a vote did not occur.

On Tuesday, Chairman Cooke held a meeting to vote the bills out,  but there were not enough Republicans in attendance to pass the bills out of committee!   The Session ends next Thursday and the notice just went out a moment ago that the State Affairs Committee will meet this Friday to vote.  This is cutting it extremely close! The bills still need three readings & votes on the House floor, then who knows how many amendments and points of order will slow it down.

The Senate played this game at the end of the regular session and it killed the bill.  Legislators are receiving faxes supporting the sanctuary city bills —  BUT, WHAT WE NEED ARE PHONE CALLS. The faxes are not necessarily being printed out by every office, and if that doesn’t happen they were never received.

Call your Representative, especially if they are on the State Affairs Committee.

Please call and email the committee members listed below (Republicans first) with the message.

The State Affairs Committee will be voting on Friday morning.  You want them to make themselves available for the vote on Friday. Certain members avoided voting earlier in the week. Texans want anti-sanctuary legislation passed so please show up and vote YES on these bills.

In addition, support a mandate for all employers to use E-Verify. “Sanctuary policies are not needed to protect illegal-alien witnesses and crime victims because they are protected under the federal “U” visa.  And citizens do not want to compete with illegal aliens for Texas jobs.”
