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.

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.

Time is up, no more, the Governor's of our United States need to get off their a*ses and use their office to bring everyone within their jurisdiction to do their jobs or be recalled and put People into those offices that will act in accordance of law, if not lock them up on all violations. No more pass, the American people not ilegals, not immigrants not those visiting on visas matter. Americans Matter, only Americans Matter all others are have interest in overthrow and the American people have the right above all to stop the overthrow of our sovereign Republic.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

ANOTHER First for We The People to regain OUR United States of America!!!

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!

STRANGE,  

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

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 …

BIDEN: Yes.

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.
