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!

You gripe about the trucks from Mexico tying up the traffic at the border crossing or causing accidents with the appearance the drivers get off without any enforcement action whatsoever. Well you need a real lesson in criminal and traffic law. You cannot not cit a person or file a charge without presenting enough probable cause to do so. Also you cannot make these trucks go away. Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have sealed a deal with the NAFTA Treaty that allows these illiterate Mexican drivers the right to take their loads all the way to New York or Chicago if they wish. The only way to stop them is if the safety inspector find cause to put the truck or the drivers out of service. Rules that state these driver must be able to speak and understand English well enough to assist the inspector during the inspections is being disregarded by the local court judges and some of the inspectors are unsure if they can write the drivers citations for failure to understand English (391.11B) that is if it is still on the rules anymore. The federal government is now responsible for any thing that happens when these trucks and drivers fail the test and cause death and destruction on our city streets.
Great job, except for the part of the federal gov responsibilty It's mexican truckers period. If they can't pay they can't drive neither! America needs to quit giving breaks!
