From State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer--protest SB 185—the "show me your papers" bill

SB 185 is the "show me your papers" bill.  Sounds like SB 1070 in Arizona, right?  Yes, this bill reflects the political will of the bigots in our state and state leadership.

The hearing where this will be heard begins at 8am on Monday morning March 16th at the Texas State Capitol as follows:

COMMITTEE:    Veteran Affairs & Military Installations-S/C Border Security 
TIME & DATE:  8:00 AM, Monday, March 16, 2015 
PLACE:        E1.016 (Hearing Room) 
CHAIR:        Senator Brian Birdwell
I know that lots of folks are out on Spring break —and that's exactly when so many of the truly toxic and/or racist bills surface—because legislators that are zealous to railroad an agenda know that the community is either out of town or distracted by SXSW.

If you happen to be around, please make your way to the Texas Capitol on Monday morning and participate in the Texas Latino Advocacy mobilization, and the Texas AFT rally from 12:15-1:00PM on the South steps of the Texas State Capitol , too (see earlier post) to exercise your constitutional right to assemble and protest this injustice—and to advocate for adequate and equitable school finance, as well, while you're at it.

Senator José Rodriguez lays out here why this bill is both bad policy and inhumane.
