Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam says he’s allowing legislation billed as a push against sanctuary cities to become law without his signature, saying it has stirred up irrational fear on both sides.

Irrational fear on both sides?

Border Patrol agent detains women for speaking Spanish at Montana gas station

'I was buying eggs. I don’t think that’s suspicious," Ana Suda said after last week’s incident with a Border Patrol agent.

“Ma’am, the reason I asked you for your ID is because I came in here, and I saw that you guys are speaking Spanish, which is very unheard of up here,” the agent, who identified himself as Agent O’Neill, said in the video.

When Suda, 37, asked if she and her friend were being racially profiled, the agent responded no.

“It has nothing to do with that,” he said. “It’s the fact that it has to do with you guys speaking Spanish in the store, in a state where it’s predominantly English-speaking.”

No, if you speak Spanish, if your skin is brown-ish, I don’t think your fears are irrational at all.

Freakin’ wimp. Hasn’t got the stones to stand up against it, hasn’t got the stones to take responsibility for it.

That’s the GOP governing class for you right there.


Chicken shit coward (but then he is a GOoPer…is his goobernatorial reelection hopes in jeopardy?)

How does this work in Tennessee? Legislation doesn’t need to be signed into law to become law there?
