I found this bit in Kristin Mack's column from today to be amusing.
Reps. Debbie Riddle and Robert Talton and Sen. Dan Patrick, all Houston-area Republicans, want to do away with the city's "sanctuary city" policy. They hope to give police officers authority to enforce federal immigration laws and allow them to inquire about the immigration status of anyone "under arrest or detained on other grounds if the officer has a reasonable suspicion" that the person has violated immigration laws.
That's Debbie Riddle of Tomball, Robert Talton of Pasadena, and Dan Patrick of Montgomery County (*). So nice to know that they have such a deep and abiding interest in the business of the City of Houston. And so totally different from this
. I'd advise them to run for City Council if they care so much about matters like this, but I don't know that they'd qualify for the ballot.
(*) Patrick is now registered to vote in Harris County, which he needed to do to run for his Senate seat, with an apartment out on Memorial Drive listed as his address. I don't know if it's in Houston proper or not, but I do know that he pays property taxes on a residence in Montgomery County.
