A Federal judge ruled Friday that the state of Texas may continue denying the issuance of birth certificates to U.S.-born children of immigrant parents.
U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman said that although the families raised “grave concerns,” in their petition seeking an emergency injunction, it was “not enough without substantiating evidence to carry the burden necessary to grant relief,” according to the court’s decision.
The lawyers representing the immigrant families sought an injunction compelling the Texas Department of State Health Services to issue U.S. birth certificates to protect the children’s right to health care, travel, and schooling, as well as parental rights, they argued.
First of all the parents are illegal aliens, not “immigrants”. Immigrants enter the country with proper authorization, they don’t sneak across and demand that the taxpayers foot the bill for a free ride.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said that although he will continue to represent health officials as the case winds its way through the appeals process, Pitman’s decision was “an important first step in ensuring the integrity of birth certificates.”
There are too many “sanctuary” states that allow illegals to invade and stay, while they commit more crimes and leech off the public dole. At least Texas has had enough.
