The New American

Texas Governor and Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry is no stranger to controversy.

Recently Governor Rick Perry ordered a special legislative session to deal with a few pressing issues, such as school funding, Congressional redistricting, and other matters. During a special session, legislators may only deal with issues specified by the Governor in the call for the special session, or issues which he adds once the session begins. In this case, Governor Perry added two more items to the agenda.
The first was a bill banning “sanctuary cities” in Texas. The term refers to cities and towns that declare themselves a sanctuary for illegal aliens, openly stating that they are not going to enforce laws against illegal immigration. The other one was a bill that would make it a crime for TSA agents to touch the private parts of airline passengers during “security screenings.”
