Riddle says her measure is a response to what she says is the escalating violence caused by Mexican and Latin American gangs in Texas.

The measure would be similar to Arizona’s controversial SB 1070, in that it would require that local police work with federal immigration officials in determining the legal status of a person who is in their custody.
