Texas is cracking down on drivers who transport illegal aliens.

Starting September 1st, the State will take away a person's Commerical Drivers License for life if they are caught transporting or hiding aliens in a vehicle.

The old law only suspended the license for a year.

The state is trying to avoid another situation like in Victoria, Texas several years ago where illegal aliens died in the back of a big rig.
