Texas 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.
I agree... defunding Sanctuary Cities is not enough... there must be direct, personal accountability for the Mayor, City Council and primary law enforcement officers... chief's and deputy chief's need to be fired and held criminally liable for aiding and abetting illegal alien trafficking... among other crimes... including criminal malfeasance in office, conspiracy to engage in a criminal enterprise... to wit, protecting illegal aliens trafficking, etc.
No one should be above the law ... and that especially applies to government leadership and law enforcement. Put the bums in jail.. firing them is not enough.
|McConnell all but rules out filibuster change|
|Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)|
HE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
HE IS A HALFWIT BY ALL ACCOUNTS
WE NEED A LEADER OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
NOT ( whatever the hell he is )
Must be a good move... ACLU is having a hissy fit.
Randal, The Anti-American Civil Liberals Union (ACLU) needs to be dissolved, too! They mostly protect Hitlery lovers, illegals & The Mus-slims Cult!! All of those scumbags believe torturing is bad but BEHEADING INFIDELS is alright! Oh well, you get my drift! BAD for the American Tax Payers & their liberties! These are the same scumbags who think "Water Boarding" is torture but Beheading Americans' is alright! Screw them!!!!
Not with YOUR appendage!
Note that the 'Court', (Which one they didn't say) has struck down, or at least postponed President Trump's order banning immigrants for a time. It's another Obama appointee, doing his damnedest to stop the Country, and make our President look bad!
I don't seem to remember anything like this happening to obama.
obama appointed this liberal meathead, my question is can Trump replace him ? If not why not ?
The order has no effect on Trump... the Judge ruled that Trump may not order the deportation or detention of those with valid VISA's. However, a VISA may be summarily voided at any point after being issued. Hence, those being detained and deported will first have their VISA voided... this can be done as they exit the plane or arrive in America at a Immigration check point... keeping them out permanently.
Was thinking the same thing Col
The ACLU is just spewing hot-air to see what sticks
Those "refugees" want to be known for "being the first" to challenge OUR Laws.
'' ANOTHER First for We The People to regain OUR United States of America!!! ''
There are many more to come.
WE THE PEOPLE, need to get behind President Trump in every way we can and counter the FALSE MEDIA and EXPOSE those in congress who are doing everything they can to discredit him, WE THE PEOPLE need to raise our voices here through the internet and promote the great things President trump is doing for WE THE PEOPLE.
Most of those who oppose President Trump didn't even bother to vote and most of them it appears are on welfare and being paid to protest.
THIS HAS GOT TO STOP
