In League City, Texas, officials are considering a ban on housing illegal immigrants within the city limits.

The city council is expected to vote on the ordinance Tuesday. The councilwoman who proposed the law sites public safety, fear of a drain on taxpayer dollars and possible protests as her reasons for the measure.

Some legal experts say the proposal will not stand the test of law.

The US Supreme Court has already ruled on this issue and Texas city would be in violation of the law and could be paying illegal immigrants $$ for violating the law.
