[Ed. – Imagine that: Hispanics are thinking fellow citizens with diverse opinions. Who knew?]
If you believed the manure being produced by the mainstream liberal media, you would think that every person of Hispanic ethnicity in America supports Barack Obama’s illegal immigration programs and wants to open the border for all to freely enter. However you may be surprised to learn that the liberal media is once again publishing false impressions and hiding the truth.
I doubt seriously if news agencies like CNN or MSNBC would tell you that Pedro Rivera of Texas stated:
“I’m an American citizen and I believe in the rule of law, and being Hispanic, I should not be granted special privilege in avoiding the law. We need officers to have all the tools available to them to keep us safe. That includes asking the question, when you’re being detained for a crime or being arrested for an offense, ‘Are you here illegally? Are you a U.S. citizen?’”
Rivera retired from the US military and is just one of a growing number of Hispanics in the Lone Star state that are pushing for the passage of SB 185. This bill would prevent cities from implementing ordinances that prevent local law enforcement from asking people they detain about their citizenship. Democrats have been fighting the bill as they don’t want police to be able to identify illegals for fear that future illegal voters will be deported out of the country.
