Texas has never completely forgotten that it was once a sovereign country.
That continues to play out today with some cultural differences, and lately, differences in its approach to the law.
Texas is a solid red state with the exception of some deeply blue areas, where the dangerous sanctuary city idea holds sway.
Thankfully, though, this state is the first to sign a HUGE law that seriously hinders sanctuary cities. This comes hot on the heels of the Trump administration delivering one final ultimatum.
Illegal immigrants and liberals are pitching massive hissy fits but you know what? It’s DONE:
The governor of Texas just signed into law the nation’s strongest legislation banning sanctuary cities, and threatening local officials with arrest for failure to follow its provisions. And that’s for starters.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott took to Facebook Live to broadcast his signing of the nation’s strongest law prohibiting sanctuary cities and threatening law enforcement officials who refuse to comply with arrest and prosecution.
“Legal immigration is different from harboring people who have committed dangerous crimes.
This law cracks down on policies like the Travis County sheriff who declared she would not detain known criminals accused of violent crimes. Those policies are sanctuary city policies and won’t be tolerated in Texas.”
These sheriffs have until September 1 to get into compliance or face criminal charges themselves.
Needless to say, these law enforcement officials who are breaking the law are NOT happy.
