    Texas Republicans add Arizona-like residency checks to platform

    Texas Republicans add Arizona-like residency checks to platform | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Dallas News on Yahoo! | The Dallas Morning News

    Quote(Texas Republicans voted Saturday to call for a state law to require local police officers to verify that people arrested on suspicion of a crime are in the country legally.)

    While I am not against such a law being passed in Texas, I doubt very much whether the present Governor Rick perry will sign it into Law.

    Why?

    Well Perry is (at least in name) a Republican, He was not always a supporter of that party, initially he entered the Political arena as a Democrat.
    However IMO the main reason is because he wishes to remain Governor and will fight for continuance of that post this coming November, and Texas has a considerable number of Hispanic citizens.

    And I thought Perry was being honest about Arizona law not being for Texans. I guess he will not get my vote, and I am going toward Bill White for Texas. To bad Hutchinson wasn't able to make it in the primaries, since she would have gotten my vote as well.

    Good for them!

    People who have broken the law should have to pay the price for their criminal activity.

    Republicans are playing a dangerous game here. The Hispanic vote is getting more important every day. If they piss off too many people, they are going to pay at the ballot box.

    The legal Hispanic vote counts, but not the illegal vote.

    The legal hispanic voters do care about this law. And there not for it, so it's safe to assume they will vote accordingly.

    And here i had the impression you were going to vote for bill white anyways before all this.

    Some do. I myself can testify to my parent's neighbors. They are hispanic in decent (im not sure if they are immigrants, i never ask) and did not like the status quo.

    I think the hispanics want an immigration policy that makes sense like everyone else.

    There are many Texas cities that have sided with the LA CA boycott of Arizona business. Repubs here are singing to the choir, yet the choir is much smaller than they think it is.

    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.
