TX Republican Lawmakers Filing Several Anti-Illegal Immigration Bills

A border sheriff is expected to join immigrant advocates in Austin to denounce new proposals that would crack down on illegal immigration in Texas.

Republicans have filed more than a dozen anti-illegal immigration bills.

One would require local law enforcement to ask drivers without identification if they're in the country legally.

Another would cut of state funding to departments that don't enforce immigration laws.

One GOP state senator believes conservatives finally have enough votes to pass immigration measurers after years of failed attempts.
