    Perry will not sign it into law. It would be the last thing that he would ever do in politics. I know. I live here.
    I live here too. I know texas cities are liberal, but i don't think they are that left to fully go through with it, it's mainly posturing and grandstanding at best.

    It requires acceptance by Perry, not sure that will happen.

    It should, but Perry up for re-election and requires Hispanic vote.

    Hutchinson has and will always do whatever she has to in order to gain some relevance in Political structure of US.

    She cares not a whit for Americans, Texas or indeed anything else than her own relevance.

    I might at one time have voted for her, but having seen her performance in attempting to be the GOP candidate for Governor of Texas, I would never vote for her in the future.

    Unfortunately a lot of Legal Hispanics simply view laws such as Arizona has passed as Anti Hispanic.

    They do not see that Illegal immigration hurts them as much as it hurts every other American.

    Really? Got a basis for that other than intuition?
