德州议会闹剧继续上演


德州州议会议长菲勒今天签署一项拘捕令,将对圣安东尼地区选出之民主党州议员柯德进行逮捕, 柯德日前从华府返回议会, 但是週日又重返华府加入其他五十位的民主党议员, 旨在抗议德州议会要强行通过新的投票案。


这项通缉令执行上有困难, 因為他们都身处外州 ,这批目前暂居华盛顿的民主党州议会议员希望州议会无法达到法定人数 ,而无法通过新的法案。


当他们集体离开奥斯丁前往华府之后, 由共和党控制之议会立即发佈希望他们回到议会之通令,但是他们已经离开德州 ,州法令是不可能到外州把他们逮捕回来开会。


目前正在进行的临时州议会将在八月六日结束 ,但是艾伯特州长坚持立即再加开 临时会, 继续讨论新的投票法。


近年来, 德州之政治版图有了重大之变化, 新的居民和移民不断增加 ,到目前之统计 ,每月有一万一千外来人,涌进徳州,主要的大城市几乎是民主党人之天下, 而非城市地区仍然是共和党之死忠部队 ,他们正遭受威胁, 希望缩紧公民投票方式, 改变以往通讯或不下车可投票之规定。


如今五十一位民主党代表『逃亡」外州, 以阻挡法案通过, 也真是民主政治的闹剧了。







 
Texas House Speaker Signs Arrest Warrant For Democrat


Texas House speaker Dade Phelan signed a civil warrant for the arrest of San Antonio democratic state representative Philip Cortez who rejoined his colleagues in DC.


The warrant is not likely to have a legal impact since Texas law lacks jurisdiction outside of the state. More than 50 House Democratic representatives left the state and flew to DC to block Republicans from having the quorum needed to pass a new voting bill.


Cortez chairs the House Urban Affairs Committee and didn’t reply to the warrant and said that this is his duty to do everything he can to stop this harmful legislation.


The current special session is slated to end on August 6 and the Democrats said they don’t plan to return to Texas. But Governor Greg Abbott said he plans to call another special session to get his priority legislation passed.


In the last few years the political landscape of Texas has changed rapidly. Many newcomers and immigrants are coming to Texas and most of them are Democrats. Republicans are losing their majority control in many of the state’s urban areas.


We really want to see this political drama come to an end soon. Our state is still facing so many challenges and we need the lawmakers to solve our problems.
