A group calling itself Basta Texas is attempting to organize opposition to legislation signed into law on May 7 by Texas Governor Greg Abbott. TX SB4 goes into effect on September 1. Their rants approach the unhinged, even for pro-illegal alien, anti-enforcement, open borders anarchists. They are part of a joint campaign with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and Jolt, two other radical groups using racial politics and lies to organize against the law.
SB4 is a law requiring enforcement of state and federal immigration laws by local entities and campus police departments. And it has penalties for those who don’t, making it very clear in Sec. 752.053 of the law that, “A local entity or campus police department may not: adopt, enforce, or endorse a policy under which the entity or department prohibits or materially limits the enforcement of immigration laws.”
In other words, after September 1, counties, cities and college campuses in Texas cannot become their own sanctuary for illegal aliens.
Additionally, the new law will allow police to ask people they have detained, not just arrested, about their immigration status. And it has provisions for jailing law enforcement officials who refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
Basta Texas lies about the law, saying that it “makes being undocumented and brown a crime.” They also claim the law “ … is rooted in white supremacy, and those who support SB4 seek to gain political power by scape goating immigrants and people color and fomenting hate against our communities.”
It’s all lies, but we can see how deranged and desperate the pro-illegal alien anarchists have become now that real immigration enforcement legislation is becoming law. Other states are sure to follow Texas’s lead.
SB4 had 114 sponsors, Senators and Representatives, in the Texas legislature.
The resistance to immigration law enforcement, building of a border wall, and eventual enforcement of our employment laws will result in even more shrill and desperate rantings from those who felt assured we were on the path to wide open borders before the election of President Trump. Their shock and disappointment about having a pro-enforcement government in Washington and the states (Texas is just the beginning) could possibly manifest itself in demonstrations, violence, riots, and even deaths this summer.
Pro enforcement Americans can demonstrate too. And they don’t need to take to the streets. They can communicate to elected officials their unwavering support of legislation, and legislators, supporting enforcement and punishment of those who refuse to enforce immigration laws.
The equation is simple: No borders=no country. No law=no civilization.
Years ago, on one of my trips to Texas to work with immigration reform activists, I told the group I was addressing, “You know, for me, coming to Texas from California is like visiting America.”
It’s still true.
