As Texas begins to lead the nation in an ugly fight between the states and the feds regarding illegal immigration, the ACLU is taking aim at The Lone Star State’s ability to protect herself.
The American Civil Liberties Union, a leftist organization if there ever was one, has taken umbrage with Texas’ new ban on sanctuary cities, or, locales in which law enforcement refuse to enforce the nation’s laws regarding illegal immigrants. These bastions of the globalist agenda were most famously, or infamously part of California’s anti-American culture war, and the free rein given to these criminal immigrants has been instrumental in a number of violent crimes that have occurred over the course of the last few years.
Now, with Texas finally taking a legal stand against the dangerous practice of ignorance, the ACLU is issuing a travel advisory for the state, complete with ludicrous and false claims about what could occur to you while traversing the state.
“’The ACLU’s goal is to protect all Texans and all people traveling through Texas — regardless of their immigration status — from illegal harassment by law enforcement,’ said Lorella Praeli, ACLU director of immigration policy and campaigns. ‘Texas is a state with deep Mexican roots and home to immigrants from all walks of life. Many of us fit the racial profile that the police in Texas will use to enforce Trump’s draconian deportation force.’
“’We plan to fight this racist and wrongheaded law in the courts and in the streets. Until we defeat it, everyone traveling in or to Texas needs to be aware of what’s in store for them,’ said Terri Burke, executive director of the ACLU of Texas. ‘The Lone Star State will become a “show me your papers” state, where every interaction with law enforcement can become a citizenship interrogation and potentially an illegal arrest.’
“Governor Abbott signed SB4 into law Sunday night in a Facebook video carried live on Breitbart Texas. Following the social media signing, the governor spoke with this reporter about the significance of the bill and the distortions being spread about it by the left.
“Directly disputing the ACLU’s ‘show me your papers’ claim. ‘The so-called controversial part of this law is what some label as the “show your papers” component,’ the Texas governor explained. “’And what everyone seems to get wrong is they think that that provision was stricken down in the Arizona law. To the contrary, the provision in the Arizona law is stricter than the Texas law. The Arizona law required that law enforcement ASK for papers. The Texas law does not require it, it allows it so there is that one difference.’
“’But despite that difference, the Arizona law was upheld by every U.S. Supreme Court justice, including the liberals,’ he said emphatically. ‘The so-called controversial part of this law has been ruled on by the U.S. Supreme Court and upheld,’ the governor emphasized.”
The ACLU have also claimed that racial profiling by police officers will become commonplace in Texas thanks to the legislation, however, the law itself specifically states that this sort of behavior will be prohibited. Unfortunately, that reality hasn’t been recognized by the ACLU, who are sensationalizing the Texas law in order to garner donations from their liberal minions.
The conservatism movement that is sweeping the nation has been an enormous economic boon to the ACLU, who claim that they can fight back against U.S. President Donald Trump, just so long as their army of leftist lunatics continue to send them money.
