Many good Friends of Unfair Park have forwarded me the clip you see above, which District 103's state rep, Rafael Anchía, posted to YouTube last night. In it, the Haynes and Boone attorney and former Dallas ISD school board trustee argues against the passage of Carrollton state Rep. Burt Solomons's HB 12, the so-called "sanctuary cities" legislation that Gov. Rick Perry insists is an emergency item. About halfway into his 10-minute plea, Anchía whips out a copy of the 1968 Thomas Jefferson High School Document, the school's yearbook. Which, I think, is just one reason why the clip was sent to me.
