Texas Governor Goes After Sheriff Who Protects Illegal Immigrants

Image result for Sheriff Sally HernandezTexas Gov. Greg Abbott is demanding a county sheriff back off her policy giving sanctuary to illegal immigrants, or else face losing state funds.

Abbott told Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez in a letter dated Monday that she is effectively playing “Russian roulette” with her county’s safety. Travis County is a historically Democratic county, which is home to Austin and the University of Texas.

Sheriff Hernandez ran for office vowing to protect illegal immigrants in Travis County. On Friday she announced that Travis County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) employees will not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) immigration detainers, unless for the most serious of criminals.  She also added that TCSO employees will not be allowed inquire in jail or on patrol about a person’s immigration status. This policy would be effective Feb. 1.

Gov. Abbott tweeted that day that “the Governor’s Office will cut funding for Travis County adopting sanctuary policies. Stiffer penalties coming.” In his letter Monday the Republican governor justified this threat by saying that Hernandez had taken an oath to upload the laws of the United States and that Sheriff Hernandez’s outlined policy “betrays” her oath.

But if there was, they could help us out by paying their fare share of the tax burden.

Not so!  Their 'pay' would be their food and lodging, as well as clothing.  NO MONEY!  Even of you 'taxed' them on the value of the above, it would not equal the 'standard deduction'.

It was a joke, meaning if, then we could build lots of prison for lots of prisoners.

They used to be made to work and were paid something like 6 cents an hour toward their commissary.

Then a bunch of them sued and the Courts ruled it was "unconstitutional" as cruel and inhuman punishment."

That's a myass moment.

Thanks, Ruth! That was a great line!

Now's the time to bring respect for the law back, even if, for some, it's done kicking and screaming (or possible jailed !)

So one can only assume, that the federal government could, or will lawfully hold back federal tax dollars that would normally and regularly go to the state and the university, Just as will take place with all sanctuary cities in America.

I didn't know that  Chris Farley  had a sister?

Does she tell jokes in addition to being a sheriff?

Oh, that's right.  She thinks the law is a joke...

A no-law and order sheriff

Good county in Texas to not live in

So this is what they're calling law enforcement these days?

Doesn't it make you feel warm, fuzzy and safe?

LOL!  Gov. Abbott was on FOX and Friends this morning and said he would remove that sheriff from office if necessary.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
