Texas Governor Tells Sanctuary Cities That They Are On Their Own. This Is Brutal.
Terrible news have arrived for the Sanctuary cities from Texas Governor Gregg Abbott. The cities where illegal immigrants go to avoid federal deportations as well as fines or other offenses will soon be a thing of the past.
Liberals have always claimed that these cities exist to make immigrants escape their horrible countries and to make a new life, and, although that may be true to some extent, Sanctuary cities also allow criminals to enter our country and are only hurting legal immigrants’ chances to succeed in the USA. Thankfully, Gregg Abbott is now asking to pull the funding for this project completely.
“Texas Gov. Greg Abbott threatened to cut funding for one county after its sheriff announced the agency would be scaling back its cooperation with federal immigration.
Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez announced last week she’s scaling back the amount of aid her department provides federal immigration agents in detaining suspects who might be in the country illegally, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
Starting Feb. 1, sheriff’s officials will begin honoring so-called immigration holds or “detainers” placed by federal authorities only when a suspect is booked into the Travis County Jail on charges of capital murder, aggravated sexual assault and “continuous smuggling of persons.”
“Stiffer penalties coming,” was Abbott’s response in a tweet after the announcement. You know how the old saying goes: “Mess with the bull and you’ll get the horns”. Sanctuary cities will cease to exist soon, and we completely agree with Governor Abbott’s view. Do you?
