    thats a very shortsighted and illogical assumption.

    although i dont think the TEXAS SSC rules against them and they will have to push it to SCOTUS and then SCOUTUS will make it so. thats my guess. But even with that its irrational to just expect them to move without knowing anythign about them. Maybe the whole reason they are here is taking care of a sick family member or something.

    Nah they should stay and fight for their equal rights.

    And that status still applies on the fed level in Texas.

    Because they freely moved in to the state knowing the existing law. It is their burden because it was their free choice.

    so currently its best to wait it out now and fight for equality, so yes, you should rest.

    I don't have that answer, other to say that is what the people of Texas decided through their legislature.
