Maybe Texas Should Put A Sign Up That Reads . . .

"We hate Mexicans." First the Farmer's Branch city council decides to punish all of those in their city that hire illegal immigrants or rent them an apartment. I hope every employer that hires illegal immigrants flees the City of Farmer's Branch and thereby crippling it's economy. And then Tyler state Rep. Leo Berman (of the Tyler, Texas Bermans, I think) introduced legislation to be considered in January that would prevent U.S.-BORN children of illegal immigrants from attending public schools or receiving any social services. Uh, hey, idiot, if your born in the U.S. you are a United States citizen.

Yeah, it is HB 28. Apparently, it was put up for "discussion." It's great to know that our elected officials don't have anything better to do.

I live in FB, I raise my children in FB. I attended school with Tim O'hare and I don't feel they passed anything that was that groundbreaking, he just put it in writing. I think it will help keep FB a safer place to live, help keep property values up and probably help keep tax rates down. It's easy for people to comment when you don't live there.

Hey Barry,

I hope all the illegals move to Bridgeport crippling their economy. You guys can use your new hospital to treat (for free) all the sick, and the schools can be over ran with kids that can't speal english. Home valules will go down and crime will go up.

I pay taxes. My tax dollars pay for my children to attend public schools. If the illegals want to get "legal" and pay taxes and be a productive part of our society, fine, but I'm sick and tired of real Americans paying their way. I'm still paying off medical bills for my daughters intensive care stay at Cooks, where we were surrounded by 3 families of illegals, all getting the best care for their family for free. There is no way not to feel that frustration. Same with the schools. I shouldn't have to pay extra taxes so the school system can hire special teachers to teach classes in Spanish. If they want to be Americans, then dammit, be Americans all the way.

I like that Carlos Mencia bit where he says he's glad the airlines are targeting Muslims because the Mexicans finally get a break. I guess break-time is OVER.

They DO pay taxes. Anyone with a lick of sense knows that they are paying way more in than what they are taking out. I agree with Barry, I hope FB collapses under the pressure. Anon 7:52, people can comment even if they don't live there.

I think it interesting that Americans are made out the "bad guys" because they are deciding to stop taking CARE of the illegals. ILLEGAL = CRIMINAL! Lots of warped thinking going on in my estimation. You want to live here...do it legally or get out. period.

I don't think they hate Mexicans. I think they believe the law should be applied.

Anon 8:48, I guess I don't have a lick of sense, becvause I fail to see how anyone getting free medical care at any hospital, much less Cooks, is putting more into the economy than they are taking out. To me, that is a pretty ignorant statement.

I agree with those who say illegals are ILLEGAL, and they are NOT welcome to the same privilages that we as taxpaying, LEGAL Americans are. Just because you are born here doesn't mean you should get the same privilages too.

I give a big attaboy to FB for standing up for their citizens rights.

You guys have it all wrong!! The illegals DO have rights and I will personally fight to see their right is protected.

The right to remain silent knowing anything and everything they say will be used against them.

As a white boy in these United States who pays his bills..... I am sick to death of all these protected groups who are allowed to sit on their ass while I pay for them.

I would challenge any of you to sit in the parking lot outside the "medical Mission" which is located on HWY 51 south in Decatur. You will see pregnant mexican after pregnant mexican going into that clinic to get medical attention.

I have lived in Dallas all my life, and specifically in Farmer's Branch for a time, and I can say this was nothing but political posturing. FB has no illegal immigrant problem. Maybe border towns do, but FB? Other than taxes going to pay for Parkland, the county hospital - which provides medical care for all indigent people regardless of immigration status because it's the humane, moral thing to do - illegal immigrants are not an issue in FB. There are few low income apartment complexes where illegal immigrants surely live, but I don't see how that's a drain on the economy. And I believe the commenter saying illegals pay taxes was referring to the various "taxes on the poor" most notably sales tax, that ends up taxing poor people pretty heavily, regardless of immigration status.

This was a political, b.s. attempt to look tough on crime/immigration. I agree with the blog author that is was a blatantly racist move, as FB has NO PROBLEM WITH ILLEGALS.

I loved the comment I heard on TV from some local - "Yeah, you don't seem to mind when they cut your grass, fix your plumbing, and do a multitude of other things you're not willing to do yourself or pay a citizen a decent wage for, but live in your town? God No!" It's hypocracy and racism, pure and simple.

I especially like some of our fine 'mericun citizens who obviously didn't take much advantage of our free school system. They cant spell "speak", don't know that English requires a capital letter as does Christian even tho one spells it "cristians."

And did none of you note that the post said FB wasn't going after illegals, they were going after those who rent to them or employ them. Additionally, the children of the illegals who are born in this country are automatically American citizens. Period. You can't take that away from those children - regardless of either of their parents' status. Finally all these folks pay taxes - every time they buy something or pay their rent - they pay taxes. Most also pay Social Security taxes even tho they cannot ever collect any unless they become citizens.

Illegals are by definition a problem as they are here illegally. Deal with this and ask your president, governor or representative what they are doing about it. It is their problem to solve, not Farmers Branch.

Dealing with the intelligence level in Wise County is a continuing challenge.

POVERTY LAWYER -

I live in Farmers Branch. I work in Dallas. WE HAVE AN IMMIGRATION PROBLEM! I don't know where your head is burried, but pull it out because I can take you to any street in Farmers Branch and show you that THERE ARE MUCHO ILLEGALS IN FB.

I agree, the state and federal governments should be handling the problem. But, the haven't and it just keeps getting worse because our worthless politicians (and liberal attorneys) do nothing to remedy the situation. If you actually believe that the immigration problem is only in border towns, you need to leave your compound more often, if your doctors will let you.

IT AMAZES ME THAT ONE IS LABELED AS A RACIST BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT THE LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED AND THOSE WHO ARE HERE ILLEGALLY ARE BREAKING THE LAW.

Barry... you need to move to Californian with the rest of the morons.
