The message below was prepared and sent out by Senator Dan Patrick on Tuesday, June 28, 2011:
I have been sent several e-mails that are circulating today concerning Sanctuary City and the TSA bill. They are either biased due to a friendship with someone, or they simply are mis-informed and don’t know the facts. The facts do not lie. This is long, but you need the facts and the full picture. I appreciate all you do for Texas. I don’t want a feud between the House and the Senate. But, when people send out false information it has to be answered. I appreciate the work the House did this year. I am frustrated how the final two weeks ended stopping us from passing Sanctuary City and TSA bills. I’m not blaming anyone, or pointing a finger, simply setting the record straight based on the facts.
First, let me be clear. Rep David Simpson did all he could to pass this bill. He gets great cred
