Sanctuary cities are a dangerous idea. They allow illegal immigrants to reside in cities with no consequence. We have laws in place for a reason. It is not that we as American’s do not respect immigrants, we just have a problem with illegals. Illegals put a drain on society. They use resources that others could benefit from. Texas has one of the biggest issues in the country, and Governor Abbott is fed up.
A bill passed by the Texas Senate allows Abbott to not only strip state funds from sanctuary cities, but he can also fully prosecute public officials. The Lone Star State governor fully expects the legislation to become an enforceable law in the next few months.
Abbott says, “This has passed out of the Senate, we look to have it pass out of the House. I will be signing an anti-sanctuary city law into law in the State of Texas here in the coming months. Texas is going to come down hard on any city, any county, any public official that adopts a sanctuary city policy.”
“If you have a public official, including a sheriff, who continues to adopt sanctuary city policies after this ban goes into place, they could be criminally prosecuted and themselves wind up in jail. The place they are releasing dangerous criminals from,” Governor Abbott said during an interview with Fox News.
Barack Obama not only allowed sanctuary jurisdictions to exist, but he also praised the efforts of elected officials to shield illegal immigrants from any type of trouble. Obama did so much damage in his 8 years, we are only at the tip of the iceberg in trying to clean up this mess.
So what do you think about Governor Abbott’s plan to deal with sanctuary city mayors and elected officials who defy the law’s outlined?
