New mayor says top priority is ridding Carrollton of illegal immigrants
    Look for the fight against illegal immigration to intensify in Dallas' northwest suburbs.
    Carrollton's next mayor, Ron Branson, said Sunday that he'll begin working immediately to rid the city of illegal immigrants.
    His come-from-behind election victory Saturday night coincided with the expected mayoral win in neighboring Farmers Branch by a better-known activist on the same issue: Tim O'Hare.
    "Illegal immigration has got to be at the top," Mr. Branson said. "Every place I went, people wanted to talk about that."
    He said he will create a citizens committee to come up with ideas for driving out illegal immigrants.
    And he plans to meet regularly with Mr. O'Hare, who has led Farmers Branch's efforts to ban property rentals to illegal immigrants.
