Update: Anti-Sanctuary Cities bill in danger!

Texas House Republican leadership – Speaker Straus, State Affairs Committee Chair Byron Cook, and some gutless (yes, I mean that) Republican House members are playing games.  The House is having trouble conducting special session business because there is not a quorum of House members present on the floor to vote!  Also, other key Committee Chairs are playing hooky – one even spent the week in the Bahamas instead of being present to do his job! 

Today’s two actions needed: 

1) Call Chairman Byron Cook and members of the State Affairs Committee to tell them you want the Sanctuary Cities bill voted out of committee.  We need an up or down vote on this bill now!  The special session ends Wednesday.  Politely, but firmly, tell these guys to get to work! 

2) Call Governor Perry’s Office or fax him as soon as possible!  Ask him to stand up for Texas citizens.  Get a strong anti-sanctuary cities bill signed into law!
