Mexico criticizes new Texas 'sanctuary city' law
The Mexican government is expressing regret over a new Texas ban on so-called sanctuary cities, saying the law could step on the rights of its citizens who choose to live just across the border.
The Secretary of Foreign Relations on Monday said in a statement that the Texas law signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott "criminalizes even more the phenomenon of immigration." It says the law foments racial discrimination and will reduce collaboration between police and immigrant communities.
Abbott on Sunday night signed the bill that allows police to ask a person about their immigration status during routine traffic stops. He says the law does away with those who "seek to promote lawlessness in Texas."
You must notice that the word "Illegal" is always left out of statements that refer to citizens of Mexico illegally in the country. To then breaking the immigration laws of the US is a right, a tradition and an economic boom to Mexico with the billions of dollars sent home by the illegals. It is known as an off-the-books foreign aid to Mexico that we pay directly out of our pockets.
As far as the racial profiling issue, if a Texas cop stops a "brown person' who can't speak English or dresses like they just came across the border, what are the chances they are illegal? There is also a large number of Chinese who can't speak English in this area who disappear when not working in the various restaurants.
Hopefully, this law spreads to the polling booths. I'm tired of seeing 4-foot high Indians from some South American country voting in our elections and can't speak English.
