Petition to End DPS Checkpoints and Create DPS Accountability

Untitled-1.pngBackground: Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has involved itself in matters of border enforcement more and more over the last 10 years. During this period, DPS has been involved in the fatal shooting of two immigrants in South Texas when an agent shot at a truck from a helicopter, experimented with checkpoints targeting immigrant communities, and has regularly asked drivers for immigration papers and called Border Patrol during routine traffic stops.

As the largest law enforcement agency in Texas, DPS needs more accountability to Texans.

Petition:

I support:

  • An end to Department of Public Safety checkpoints in our community
  • DPS transparency and accountability to the community
  • Drivers Licenses regardless of immigration status

    State Law enforcement, municipal law enforcement, county law enforcement, & school law enforcement agencies must not be used to enforce federal law. Jurisdictional boundaries are created for a reason. The above mentioned agencies are created to serve the local community & federal agencies are created to enforce federal law. Recall elections should be held if local politicians endorse such actions.
