“We are deeply disappointed that Attorney General Abbott has filed a brief supporting Arizona’s extreme ‘show me your papers’ law. Discriminatory laws have no place in Texas, or in America. By filing this brief in support of Arizona’s discriminatory racial profiling law, Attorney General Abbott has brought shame on my native state.”
As Texans, we are proud of our values … and supporting a discriminatory racial profiling law is certainly not one of them. Furthermore, we rely on law enforcement to keep us safe. Their input should not be ignored. Shame on Attorney General Abbott for dragging Texas into Arizona’s mess. His action was plain un-Texan.
