Dallas, Houston Law Enforcement Speak Against Sanctuary Cities

Houston and Dallas law enforcement officials say they oppose legislation to free officers in so-called sanctuary cities to ask the immigration status of anyone during a traffic stop, questioning, or other detention.

The Houston Police Chief and the Dallas County Sheriff testified saying the legislation could make immigrants afraid to report crimes and cause the further crowding of jails.

Governor Rick Perry added immigration enforcement measures to the call of the legislature's special session last week.
