That was the headline of a story in yesterday’s Dallas Morning News about the flood of bills pre-filed in the Texas Legislature. The News article offers the opinion that immigration will be a primary focus of the legislative session that starts in January. Many of the pre-filed bills are definitely anti-immigration. Here is a partial list of immigration-related bills, as noted in the article:

* Enact a constitutional amendment to prohibit illegal immigrants from benefiting from state services, including health care, public assistance and education.

* Require proof of citizenship on delivery of medical assistance.

* Require proof of citizenship to vote.

* Require proof of legal residence to be considered for in-state tuition at colleges and universities.

* Require proof of employment eligibility to get any kind of business, occupational or professional license from the state, counties or cities.
