Your argument is without merit.  You did note that the man was not a Texan, but from Connecticut.  And he was arrested for harrassment by the Padre Island Police.

 

You are just talking to the wind now. 

 

 

The mistake a lot of politicians make is forgetting
they've been appointed but thinking they've been anointed.

You need to read my posts closer.

 

I said, "Racial Profiling" in my post.

 

I did not mention any races as you seem to so quickly have done in your post.

 

It does not go unnoticed that you refer to Black people as "THE BLACKS". I believe that is the same terminology that Donald Trump and his White Nationalist supporters use.

 

In fact, being a North Carolinian, I am quite proud of the responses from the people in Charlotte that are in the video. It sounds like EVERYONE has GOOD ideas on how to overcome racism.

 

Unlike the situation in TEXAS, I am sorry to say. Racism in TEXAS is so ingrained into the INSTITUTIONS in TEXAS like the universities, law enforcement, state government, housing, and yes, even customer service, where a hotel leaves a Muslim family to be threatened by a WHITE MAN without lifting a finger.

Why would you do that???


Race was implied when it was posted because of the sanctuary cities bill placed into law.  And you mentioned race in your original post:

 

"The American Civil Liberties Union issued a travel advisory for the state of TEXAS.

 

"The ACLU warns that Americans and others can anticipate violations of their constitutional rights. They warn that Americans and others can be subject to racial profiling, baseless scrutiny, and illegal arrest based on how one looks or sounds."

I don't know why you are using your wife as an example.

 

According to the ACLU, EVERYONE should be careful.


But of course from your series of posts you are inferring it is directed at minorities.

So my wife should be careful according to the ACLU?  If a person has a valid Texas driver's license there should be no question since a SSAN is required to get one.  But of course if it was bought from a local flea market then a warrant check by cops would show it was stolen.

 

So how long will this hold up in court without it being tossed out?

 

Here is a tidbit from the Texas Tribune for comparison:  "Between 2008 and 2012, the ACLU said, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement requested local jails to hold 834 U.S. citizens, including some who spent additional days in jail because of the error."

 

So should people be more afraid of the local police or of the INS?

 

Further how will the state determine if the law is indeed being enforced?  This ranks up there with North Carolina's 'bathroom law'.

It is dangerous for Americans out there as The State Department has issued TRAVEL ALERTS AND TRAVEL WARNINGS for many countries including Yemen, North Korea, Pakistan, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Iran, Egypt, Columbia, and 32 more countries.

 

But, it is also dangerous for Americans in one other place.

 

The American Civil Liberties Union issued a travel advisory for the state of TEXAS.

 

The ACLU warns that Americans and others can anticipate violations of their constitutional rights. They warn that Americans and others can be subject to racial profiling, baseless scrutiny, and illegal arrest based on how one looks or sounds.

 

YESSIRRREEE........... It is a dangerous world out there.
