TX: SB9 Sanctuary Cities Moves Out of Senate Committee

TX: SB9 Sanctuary Cities Moves Out of Senate Committee...Less than a week after Gov. Rick Perry added the measure to the special session agenda, the contentious “sanctuary cities” bill is one step closer to what lawmakers see as its inevitable passage...seeks to prevent cities, counties and other special districts from banning law enforcement from inquiring into the status of individuals lawfully detained or arrested. The bill would also expand the federal government’s Secure Communities program to include all detention facilities (it’s currently in use in every county jail) and codify stricter guidelines for legal residents applying for state issued driver’s licenses or IDs.
