Default U.S.-Texas Agency Wants To Set Up Statewide Driverís License Checkpoints nov13th

Motorists would be required to prove legal U.S. residency

The Texas Department of Public Safety Commission wants to set up statewide driverís license checkpoints and has requested a ruling on their legality.

The agency wants the checkpoints to enable authorities to stop motorists and ask them to prove they are legal U.S. residents.

The checkpoints would be staffed by state troopers or local police who would have the power to review driversí licenses, vehicle registrations and proof of insurance.

AP reports that State Senator Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) and 14 other Texas lawmakers have penned a letter to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott demanding that he ignore the Department of Public Safety Commissionís request claiming it is irrelevant because no DPS checkpoint program has been authorized by the state, a regulation that has been in place since 1994.

They have this in Saudi Arabia, police put up checkpoints and stop all traffic and ask for your residence ID card or visa in passport. If you don't have it, you get deported.
I guess that they are trying to catch people coming in illegally from the south?
This sort of thing is normal in lots of countries, either to catch people without license or those with unregistered vehicles.

Heck they have it in New York. Happens all the time where I live. The Texans won't like it though--they WILL rebel. It is a violation of civil rights. I have the right to drive to Walmart without being harrassed!
