Mayor asks contractors to stop hiring undocumented workers
— reported by KTRK ABC Channel 13
But Houston Mayor Bill White is now asking contractors with the city to follow the law when it comes to hiring.
Council Member Mark Ellis is calling for a resolution that would allow Houston police officers to ask crime suspects for their immigration status. Mayor White said he’s not interested in taking up resolutions in general, not just immigration topics.
Of course, since crime is down in Houston, we can afford to have HPD officers waste their time trying to do the jobs of INS agents. I mean, it’s not like we had 14 murders over the holiday weekend, or anything.
