Secret DPS database gathered info on immigrants

In his first post on the team blogging at Texas Kaos, Vince Leibowitz parses through what's known about another heretofore secret database collected by the Texas Department of Public Safety that may have crossed the line into illegally using state police for immigration enforcement.

Vince describes the DPS program as a "combination of two awful public policy disasters into one: racial profiling and immigrant hunting." Read his whole post and the Dallas News article that it's based on.

Suggested reason why no one has commented on this post: they are in shock? Forget reality TV, this is real reality!
