Resolution calls for special session to convene to address illegal immigrant settlement that cropped up north of Houston in recent weeks.
Republicans in the Texas legislature voted unanimously to pass a resolution calling for a special session to be convened to discuss the sprawling illegal alien settlement in Texas known as Colony Ridge.
The Texas GOP passed the resolution in a 61-0 vote Monday, calling on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) to investigate the illegal immigrant settlement that cropped up north of Houston in recent weeks.

The resolution attests that the Colony Ridge development, which houses “an estimated 50,000 to 75,000 inhabitants and spans over 60 square miles,” is advertised on Spanish language and international channels and that the developer doesn’t require social security numbers to obtain loans.
The resolution also cites The Daily Wire’s reporting claiming the area has a minimal law enforcement presence, making it rife for cartel and drug activity, “including the Gulf and Sinaloa cartels which are reported to have purchased land in the early stages of the development in order to set up safe houses in the area.”
“Despite the challenges posed to the community by illegal alien settlements and the cartel activity that follows them, the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office does not check immigration status in routine stops because, according to the office, it ‘would take forever,’” the resolution states.
It adds that the nearby school district, Cleveland ISD, has become overwhelmed with the influx of illegals, growing from an enrollment of 6,500 to over 12,400 in four years.
“Cleveland ISD has had to build several new schools and is reported to be hiring H-1B visa holders due to the number of foreign language teachers needed to keep pace with enrollment,” the resolution adds.
Republicans are also calling on Gov. Abbott to open a full investigation into Colony Ridge “and its possible connections to elected officials in the region.”
The effort to prevent more illegals from inhabiting the area comes as alarming footage made its rounds on social media last week showing an overhead view from a helicopter of the expansive development near the Woodlands suburb where illegal migrants are reportedly the majority of residents.
This is INSANE.
A real estate developer has created a third world city right here in Texas for thousands of illegal aliens.
