The Texas anti-groping bill has passed out of committee in the state Senate, but the bill seems nothing more than peacock feathers.
First, the special session that the Texas legislature is currently in will end on Wednesday. With a controversial bill just out of committee so late tonight, the likelihood of it passing a floor vote in the Senate is not high.
The real reason this bill is garnering so much attention may be that another piece of legislation intended to rid Texas of so-called “sanctuary cities” is being forgotten.
Sanctuary cities are areas that choose to not enforce immigration laws. They don’t deport illegal immigrants and often don’t even bother to look for them.
The anti-groping bill is nothing more than smoke to hide the fact that the Texas legislature is not doing what the citizens of the lone star state want them to do.
