Police to drop off undocumented immigrants at Congressional Offices? Only in Texas.


That’s right. A state legislator in Texas has introduced a bill to instruct law enforcement to turn over custody of undocumented immigrants (“illegal aliens”) to members of Congress. (ht ThinkProgress). Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (R) told reporters “I want us to take these illegal immigrants in custody to a congressman’s office and say, ‘We don’t know what to do with these people. Do you?’”

Full text of the rather short bill here [PDF], but the relevant portion is:

A law enforcement agency that has custody of an illegal immigrant to whom this article applies may:
(1) release or discharge the illegal immigrant at the office of a United States senator or United States representative during that office ’s normal business hours; and
(2) request an agent or employee of the United States senator or United States representative to sign a document acknowledging the release or discharge of the illegal immigrant at the senator ’s or representative ’s office.
