Sheriffs in Texas who refuse to follow immigration law may be sent to jail — if legislation Texas Governor Greg Abbott is supporting passes. Cities that refuse to follow the federal governments guidelines on immigration are breaking the law, and something needs to be done, especially since illegal alien criminals — who sanctuary cities protect — put citizens in danger.
President Trump has been having a hard time convincing liberal Mayors to leave their sanctuary status behind. Although it would (under common sense standards) seem shocking that city leadership refuses to protect their citizens from violent illegals, it’s unfortunately a standard practice to put law-abiding citizens safety last in cities across the U.S.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has threatened to withhold federal dollars from cities who refuse to comply with immigration law, and it seems to have had no effect on changing the minds of city leadership. Illegals have been proven to overwhelmingly vote Democrat, and their removal could possibly turn some cities red.
As reported by Breitbart, “Abbott said, “We have been pushing a piece of legislation in Texas that is going to pass that I will be signing into law that imposes even sterner penalties on counties. It will include things such as further defunding them. It will impose fines. And it could impose jail time for these sheriffs to enforce the laws. Oddly enough these sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these criminals from.”
Citizens can sleep well at night in Texas due to the Texas Governor’s willingness to tackle illegal alien criminals. Will other states follow Governor Abbott’s lead?
