IRCOT Alert: SB 4–The Anti-Sanctuary City Bill–May Get Watered Down By Speaker Straus & Co RINOs In Texas House
Here is an alert from IRCOT’s Executive Director, Maria Martinez:
SB 4, The Sanctuary City Bill, is finally moving to the House for a floor vote on Wednesday, April 26th. As written, the Bill language is fairly strong but we fully expect amendments will be offered during the floor vote by both Republicans and Democrats. As you know we have not always been thrilled with the actions of House Republicans and we must keep watch over what goes on in the People’s House.
NOW MORE THAN EVER WE NEED YOUR help to put pressure on the Legislature to ensure a good strong version gets voted out of the Texas House. We have all seen what happens when politicians create safe-zones for illegal alien criminals to wreak havoc on hard-working Americans. AND NOW IS THE TIME TO ENSURE YOUR VOICE IS HEARD!
ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE:
1. MAKE PHONE CALLS to Gov.Abbott, Lt. Governor, and the Speaker of the House stating you expect a strong Sanctuary City Bill to pass the Texas House and Conference Committee. I must stress the importance of mentioning “Conference Committee” for it is here that the bill could be stripped of it’s strong language by Republicans and Democrats alike. These committee members are selected by Speaker Straus.
Gov. Abbott 512-463-2000
Lt. Gov. Patrick 512-463-0001
Speaker Straus 512-463-3000
2.CHECK HERE FOR UPDATES on the day of the vote. We will need every volunteer possible to make phone calls to their STATE REPRESENTATIVE urging them to vote for amendments which will strengthen the bill. We will be posting these amendment numbers HERE as they are presented during the vote!
