    Texas Will Not Follow Arizona

    ORANGE — Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday that Texas would not follow in the footsteps of the state of Arizona in dealing with the illegal immigration issue.

    Arizona lawmakers recently approved an immigration bill that would make it a state crime for illegal immigrants to not have an alien registration document. It also requires police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally.

    Gov. Perry was in Orange for the reopening of the Honeywell Specialty Additives facility that was severely damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008.

    Perry said no when asked if Texas would in the future pass a law such as Arizona’s.

    “The bigger issue has to do with the abysmal border security,” Perry said. “There has been a total lack of effort by the federal government to protect our borders. In 2005 I first asked to bring in propelled drones to use as a tool. The feds have no interest in securing our borders. Security requires coordination from local, state and federal governments. We in Texas need to focus on what we can do.

    “We are spending billions on the war on terror, which I fully support, but we need the same kind of support with our borders.”

    Well being from Illinois i cant say to much but it does seem like most of the illegals head this way.It seems Arizona and Texas have the same problem.I would have thought Texas would be the first state to take matters into there own hands.

    Perry just lost a little respect on my end. I give HUGE kudos to Arizona for doing this. The Fed is sitting on their back sides for a reason.
    They plan on doing this amnesty crap soon, and the longer they leave the borders open the more illegal aliens there will be in the US, the more illegals there are the more new voters they will have when they pass the amnesty bill, unfortunately that also means there will be more dead weight in the country siphoning off the system and killing our country even faster than the Liberal Dems are doing right now.

    I was hoping we might get a little support from Texas in this endeavor. I knew New Mexico and California were not going to help. We will do what needs done anyway

    Has there been any news on the bill to require BHO to show his birth certificate before he can run in 2012?

    Texas Lawmaker to Introduce Anti-Immigration Bill

    A Texas lawmaker says she plans to push for a law similar to Arizona's get-tough immigration measure.

    San Antonio Express-News and Houston Chronicle report Wednesday that Republican Rep. Debbie Riddle of Tomball says she will introduce the measure in the January legislative session.

    The new Arizona law would require local and state law enforcement to question people about their immigration status — and make it a crime for immigrants to lack registration documents.

    Riddle says if the federal government did its job "Arizona wouldn't have to take this action, and neither would Texas."

    Democrats say such legislation is misguided and predict it will hurt the GOP politically.

    Texas won't follow Arizona

    You got to remember Perry is running for reelection. He can't win without the Mexican vote! Principles don't matter he is a politician!
