Texas Introducing Guest Working Program?

Mentioned in an article about the Utah guest worker program:

In fact, a member of the Texas State Legislature has already introduced his own guest-worker proposal. The proposed Texas Immigration Reconciliation Act, introduced by Republican Rep. Paul Workman, would help fill the needs of Texas businesses and serve as a way to collect more taxes to "pay for services provided," he told the Austin American-Statesman.

I think the meme that illegal immigrants don't pay taxes is something worth going into here more in-depth, but the thrust of the bill seems like a good one. Deport violent criminals and keep the productive, peaceful workers here. If more legislation like this gains traction, the tide might finally be turning against ridiculous, xenophobic legislation.
