Texas Governor Bans Sanctuary Cities: Putting an End to Criminal Harboring
The immediate response by the ACLU? We’re going to hold some protests and claim that this bill opens the door to racial profiling, even thought the text of the bill specifically states:
“the entity or department may not consider race, color, religion, language, or national origin while enforcing immigration laws.”
There’s a cute little play on words there. If you don’t “consider national origin,” how would you know where to deport an illegal immigrant detainee? But I digress.
The news on this front? There is no news. This is a bill that’s basically designed to tack on a penalty for local government agencies that don’t want to comply with a federal law that already exists. How the ACLU gets racism out of that? Who knows? They could turn banana pudding into a racial argument.
It’s important to remember that a lot of these kinds of arguments tend to flare up on both sides of the house. I honestly wonder many times if protesters claiming something to be unconstitutional have ever actually read the constitution. After all, these are the same people saying, “You don’t need a gun, just call a cop,” and then turn right around and claim that law enforcement shouldn’t be allowed to do it’s job? That would be funny, if it wasn’t so sad.
Texas is the first state to pass this kind of law, but I wouldn’t be surprised if more started popping up all over the country. President Trump signed an executive order to crack down on sanctuary cities, and the simple fact is that the law serves one purpose: upholding the federal code, and allowing federal agents to do their job.
Texas is going to make sure that they are in compliance, and their border is definitely one that is assaulted by nefarious groups. Sure, some innocent people are trying to slip away from corruption in northern Mexico, but we can’t let drug lords and terrorists in with them. There has to be some kind of process in place to prevent the people who want to attack our country from getting in.
