QueQue: Doggett hits Westside march, Wentworth’s ad war, Lamar targets kinder, gentler ICE

State Rep. Joaquin Castro and Austin-based Congressman Lloyd Doggett, both of whom have announced they’re running for a newly formed congressional stretching through San Antonio, march at a July Fourth immigrant rights rally on the city’s Westside.


The bill, which Smith dubbed the Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation (HALT) Act, would essentially take away any prosecutorial discretion from ICE. And the bill would only apply to the Obama administration. Thankfully, even if Smith manages to squeeze this mess out of the House, it would probably die a quick and easy death in the Senate.

Yet the national union for ICE agents also spoke out against Morton’s new priorities. In a prepared statement, union leaders said they’d issued a unanimous vote of no confidence in Morton, criticizing what they called “efforts within ICE to create backdoor amnesty through agency policy.”

Despite numerous attempts, QueQue couldn’t get a response from Smith’s office. We couldn’t wait to hear his take on what great misery was created the last time the Obama administration approved temporary protected status — to stave off the deportation of Haitian immigrants who fled to the U.S. in the aftermath of the country’s devastating 2010 earthquake. •
