FAIR State Group Behind Anti-Immigrant Ordinance in Houston

A new group called Stop the Magnet formed recently in Houston in an attempt to get two anti-immigrant ordinances on the ballot for the November election. The first ordinance would allow police to check the status of detainees in the city and the second would force city contractors to check the status of all employees. Maria Martinez of the anti-immigrant group Immigration Reform Coalition of Texas (IRCOT) is the communications director of this new group. IRCOT is listed by the hate group Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) as a state contact.
