Petition to City of San Antonio

Demand San Antonio follow Texas Law and Federal Immigration Law

On December 23, San Antonio Police Chief Bill McManus directed the release of 12 illegal immigrants detained at a human smuggling crime scene without checking their immigration status or even running a basic background and/or ID check.  It is reported that these illegal immigrants were in police custody for several hours, yet the Chief decided to put our community at risk and apparently violate federal and/or State laws by releasing them to a pro-sanctuary non-profit.  This decision not only shocks the conscience, but it abandoned what had been for years the standard procedure within the department of working closely with Federal and Municipal agencies in human smuggling cases. This petition calls upon the San Antonio City Council to immediately suspend and investigate Chief McManus for violations of City & Department Policies and/or State & Federal Laws.  It also calls upon the Texas Attorney General to investigate whether his actions (and potentially more importantly the actions of other, elected officials) would constitute a forfeiture of office under Texas Law (SB4). Petition: Whereas the Texas Legislature duly passed Senate Bill 4 (SB4), in the 85th Regular Session, which included in part, an explicit prohibition on local entities, to include law enforcement officials from adopting, enforcing, or endorsing a policy that prohibits or materially limits the enforcement of immigration laws; and Whereas SB4 also prohibited local entities and law enforcement officials from prohibiting or materially limiting the enforcement of immigration laws through pattern or practice; and Whereas Chief William McManus, on December 23, 2017 apparently dismissed a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agent from the scene of an ongoing human smuggling investigation in San Antonio; and Whereas Chief McManus further sought to deliberately to confuse residents and misrepresent the facts and circumstances of the incident, by sleight of hand and misuse and conflation of the very specific legal terms, “human trafficking” and “human smuggling” in an apparent attempt to minimize the severity of this crime and provide him with plausible excuse for treating these 12 participants in an illegal smuggling operation as victims; and Whereas Chief McManus is not only familiar with Texas SB4 and Federal Law, he is duty bound to uphold these laws for the safety of our citizens and the integrity of the law enforcement process.   Therefore, be it resolved, that we the undersigned call on the San Antonio City Council, Mayor, and City Manager to (1) immediately suspend Chief McManus and place him on Administrative Leave until the full facts and circumstances are fully understood; (2) immediately inform SAPD that they are to fully comply with Federal Law and Texas law in letter and spirit; (3) immediately reassure San Antonio and the surrounding areas that it remains a priority to ensure San Antonio is a law and order city where human smuggling, human trafficking, and law breaking of any kind shall not be tolerated. Be it further resolved that we call upon the Texas Attorney General to immediately investigate Chief McManus, and any other city officials or staff who participated in the decision to flaunt Texas law and Federal immigration laws, to determine (1) if, in fact their actions constitute a forfeiture of the person's office under  Sec. 752.0565 of Texas Government code, and (2) if such a finding is warranted, we call upon the Office of Attorney General to begin proceedings under Sec. 752.0565(b) to remove such officials from office.

Petition to President Trump Admistration, Donald Trump

A great replacement for Obamacare already exists - MUST READ.

The ACA or Obamacare is worse than a disaster. Obamacare! No one can read it and understand it. It leaked out that it was designed with bad intentions. What is amazing is that anyone with medicare supplemental insurance is aware of a system that works great for the individual, but does not make much money for the ins. companies. Here is how it works. When you retire and begin on medicare you must pay for part B about $105/month. There is a deductible you must pay and 20% of doctor bills, etc. To be insured against paying the 20% and deductible you can buy supplemental ins. There are plans A B C D E F... I chose plan F because it covered everything that was not covered by medicare. The plans were "created by the government", so all insurance companies must insure you the same based on the plan you chose. At 68 it costs about $170/month for my plan F. The key is that the plans are not created by insurance companies, but by the government. Ins company plans are all different by design, so you can't compare or shop price. After choosing plan F I knew my coverage, so I called all the insurance companies and just picked the lowest price. Applying the same system to all health care would make it simple to shop and the insurance companies would not be able to lobby for special regulations that benefit them and shaft us. The entire plan can be put on 10 pages or less, so everyone can read and understand it. It is the one plan the government did right. Insurance companies must not be allowed to create their own plans or the Obamacare replacement will not work. To summarize: The government creates plans with various coverage - for example - Plan A might offer maternity and Plan B might not. I would pick plan B because I am beyond child bearing age. The key is to have all insurance companies across the country cover the same exact plans, so they have to bid against each other.  Also, to greatly reduce the cost of medical care, all hospitals should build an urgent care center staffed with nurse practitioners next to their emergency rooms. A person with a true emergency will pass through the urgent care into the emergency room. Those without real emergencies will see "nurse practitioners" in the urgent care facility massively reducing the cost.
