Folks like CM James Rodriguez, immigrant activists, and Commentary said that if you let the City of H-Town start dabbling in immigration enforcement, paperless folks would probably not cooperate with HPD on reporting crimes.  Sure enough, the Chron had a piece on this issue yesterday.  Check it out.   Here’s a part of the piece:  “Cesar Espinosa, a Houston immigrant advocate, said HPD’s relationship with local immigrant communities has suffered since then-Mayor Bill White proposed participating in ICE’s controversial 287(g) immigrant screening program in the local jails last spring. That idea eventually was abandoned in favor of another ICE partnership, dubbed Secure Communities, which conducts automated immigration history checks on all suspects booked into the city’s jails. “

Did you know that when the first pitch is thrown at The Yard on April 5 against the Giants, it will be Pam-In-Charge’s tenth season as President of Business Operations?  Now you know!
