Texas Senate panel revives immigration enforcement bill, Hispanic lawmakers promise fight - The Washington Post: "Texas state senators have revived a bill that would allow police to question people they detain about their citizenship status.
The so-called “sanctuary cities” bill would prohibit local governments and police agencies from adopting polices to ban their officers from asking detained people about their immigration status. The bill was the subject of angry debate before it passed the House.
The Senate Transportation and Homeland Security Committee had slowed down the bill earlier this week, but revived it Friday. The 5-3 vote broke along party lines, with all Republicans supporting the bill."
