Hey, Candy, I agree! Funny how El Paso media didn't report on the bill HB 1553 called "Share the Bill" bill by Lyle Larson. The bill states this:
•HB 1553: For decades, Texas taxpayers have speculated how much the state spends to provide state services to illegal immigrants. Estimates for this figure are as high as $8 billion. HB 1553 would require every agency, individual, nonprofit organization, and public or private entity that receives state funding to determine citizenship information before rendering services, and later report citizenship and cost of services to the Comptroller. In order to hold other countries accountable for hosting their citizens, real, true numbers – not estimates - are necessary. Upon gaining documentation of how much Texas spends providing services to undocumented immigrants, the Comptroller can draft an invoice to send these countries’ governments, demanding reimbursement for services rendered. This strategy will be applied to every country in the world whose citizens are here illegally. To use Mexico as an example, if they are unwilling or unable to provide money, we should accept payment in the form of resources such as oil and minerals. Mexico, the 2nd largest exporter of oil to the U.S., is rich in minerals like oil and gas, though much of it hasn’t been developed. The United States could facilitate the extraction of mineral resources as payment for hosting Mexican citizens, while creating jobs for folks in Mexico.
Please let your Reps know you support this bill!
