Texas town makes Spanish official language.

The border town of El Cenizo, whose population is heavily Hispanic, has adopted Spanish as its official language and declared the community a safe haven for illegal immigrants, officials said Friday.  (8/16)    The “safe haven” ordinance forbids city staff, which consists of one employee and two volunteers, from helping the U.S. Border Patrol find illegal immigrants or inquiring about any person’s immigration status.

“The intent was to avoid meddling in peoples’ lives,” Rodriguez said.

“We are not protecting them and neither are we turning them in,” he said.     Read the rest here.

El Cenixo is just  down the road a bit south of Laredo which is also making the news. 

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Border Patrol’s job is not to stop illegal immigrants. The Border Patrol’s job is not to stop narcotics ? or contraband or narcotics ? the Border Patrol’s mission is not to stop criminals. The Border Patrol’s mission is to stop terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the country.”
