Texas Governor Greg Abbott knows sanctuary cities are causing huge problems in this country. He is set to make a huge move to resolve this.
Don't mess with Texas!
Steve Malzberg: “I know you brought up the possibility of jailing such Sheriffs recently.”
Greg Abbott: “We have. It’s a two-step process. One, as Governor I could unilaterally use my office to take funds away from Travis County that had been previously granted to them under Governor’s grants for criminal justice reasons and we have defunded them to the tune of $1.5 million.
In addition to that, 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. Uh it will include things such as further defunding them and it could impose jail time for the Sheriffs to enforce the laws.
Oddly enough these Sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these very criminals from.”

Texas Governor Set to Put a Stop to Sanctuary Cities
It's good to see someone taking massive action to stop these sanctuary cities. The sheriffs release these criminals from behind bars, they get put behind bars themselves. Bring some accountability to where it is lacking!
