Texas State Representative Leo Berman (R-Tyler), one of two lawmakers in this state - the other being Debbie Riddle of Tomball - who has announced that a law similar to Arizona's SB 1070 will be introduced at the next legislative session in January, is acting early to eliminate the specious claims of racism certain to emanate from the mouth of Al Sharpton. Berman announced today that there will be 'no profiling whatsoever' in the Texas version of the bill.

Via KVUE News in Austin:
AUSTIN -- The state lawmaker leading the charge to bring an Arizona-style immigration law to Texas, says racial profiling will not be allowed if his bill becomes law.

“It will be the same bill except that we will completely eliminate any verbiage of profiling. There will be no profiling whatsoever,” said State Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler. “If you don’t commit a crime, you're not going to be asked the question if you’re illegal or not -- just don’t commit the crime."

Berman explained his bill would allow local law enforcement agencies to ask about immigration status only if the people they stop or arrest can't show an official ID, such as a driver's license. Some immigrant advocates worry that still targets minorities unfairly -- especially Hispanic Texans.
Just wait. There will be cries of racism even if Berman concedes illegals are allowed to be in the state, unless they are caught committing another crime. Good move by Berman here. He just helped the leftwing wackos make themselves look even more foolish in objecting to this bill.

KVUE also mentions Gov. Rick Perry's reticence when it comes to supporting such a bill. What needs to happen is that Texans need to support the efforts of Berman and Riddle along the lines of 80%, thereby dragging Perry kicking and screaming to sign the bill.
