Some islanders who live in the town named after Bernardo de Galvez are lobbying to have him named an honorary citizen.
Galvez played a diplomatic role during the Revolutionary War.
He was careful not to do any favors to the British.
Honorary citizenship is rare — only seven people have received the honor.
Islanders have been lobbying the U.S. House of Representatives to pass House Joint Resolution 105.
News of that effort hit the streets about the same time that the League City City Council approved a resolution telling city staff not to follow federal directives on immigration.
And so some wags had to ask: If the U.S. House votes to grant Bernardo de Galvez citizenship, will the council in League City resolve not to recognize it?
