Texas legislature has passed House Bill 4, which will allow local police to arrest and remove illegal aliens.
The bill also makes illegal entry into Texas a misdemeanor, and charges foreign nationals who refuse to leave with a felony.
Many supporters have argued that the legislation is a Texas solution to a problem created by the Biden administration’s failure to secure the border. (Trending: Meet The Ultra Rich Megadonors Behind Democrats)
“There is nothing unfair about ordering someone back from where they came if they arrived here illegally” said Rep. David Spiller.
“House Bill 4 is a Texas solution to a Texas problem,” Spiller pressed.
“It is a humane, logical, and efficient approach to a problem created by the Biden Administration [sic] continued failure and refusal to secure our border. Not only does it not overburden our criminal justice system, it should be less costly than detaining many people that we are currently expending funds to house.”
Critics claim the bill will hurt construction companies and workers, and may lead to racial profiling by police.
“My community is being attacked on a daily g—— basis,” pressed Democratic Rep. Armando Walle. “I’ve been sitting there my whole g—— time listening to y’all motherf——. It pisses me off. Y’all don’t understand that.”
The bill is expected to be ratified by Governor Greg Abbott and may trigger a federal court battle over immigration.
“The core question is whether the states can make it a crime to violate federal immigration law and detain an alien for violating that law,” said constitutional law professor Josh Blackman.
Additionally, Texas is considering spending $1.5 billion on a border wall.
The number of illegal border crossings has increased significantly in recent years, with millions entering the US.
