FINALLY IT STARTS!!! Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has banned “sanctuary cities” in Texas and has also followed through on his promise / threat to start blocked funding for the city of Austin TX because of their very illegal and very dangerous sanctuary policies of the city.
If things go well they might even be able to remove the corrupt libtard public official clowns who refuse to follow the law.
“We all support legal immigration into the United States. Legal immigration is what has built the United States of America; what must be stopped is it illegal illegal immigration, and worse, the criminals who conspire with cartels to enter the United States illegally.”
“Now Texas can’t change federal immigration laws; what Texas can do is to enforce existing law. There are consequences, the deadly consequences, of not enforcing the law.”
We hope that ALL sanctuary cities, like LA, San Francisco, NY, Austin and Chicago, lose their federal funding until they stop beclowning themselves and start follow the existing laws of our nation, no matter how much they personally disagree with them.
Watch Trey Gowdy explain the dangerous negative impacts of sanctuary cities.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott blocked funding to Austin on Wednesday after its sheriff said the city’s jails would no longer honor most federal immigration detainers.
Abbott’s move begins a crackdown over sanctuary city policies in the state. The Republican governor is also pushing to sign new laws that could go even further than President Donald Trump’s new executive actions against sanctuary policies.
Travis County officials condemned Abbott’s decision, which would cost Austin 1.5 million in grant money earmarked for crime victim services, courts and other programs. They stood by Sheriff Sally Hernandez, who announced after Trump’s inauguration that her jails would only honor immigration holds I murder, aggravated sexual assault and human trafficking cases.
Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt wrote in a letter to Abbott that she was confident the sheriff is within the law.
“I am certain you have come to the same conclusion; else you would not be seeking to change current State law to put all Texas Sheriffs in the service of the United States Department of Homeland Security,” Eckhardt wrote.
The revoked funds came a day after Abbott used his State of the State address to declare a “sanctuary city” ban an urgent priority for lawmakers. A Senate committee on Thursday is expected to vote on a bill that would deny state grant funds to jurisdictions that discourage “inquiring into the immigration status of a person under lawful detention or arrest.”
Abbott has also called for the power to remove locally elected officials if they don’t comply.
Abbott announced the legislation in an interview Wednesday with “Fox & Friends,” saying he and fellow Republicans in the Texas legislature are working to ban sanctuary cities and impose financial and criminal penalties on officials who fail to comply.
“We are working on laws that will … ban sanctuary cities [and] remove from office any officer-holder who promotes sanctuary cities,” he said.
