Texas is an Example to Follow
Governor Greg Abbott has drawn his line in the sand and says no more. No more to the sanctuary cities. That sanctuary city policies will no longer be tolerated in the great State of Texas. He scolded Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez for promoting sanctuary policies and violating Federal Immigration Law.
Governor Abbott says quote “Your decision to not fully honor U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) requests to detain criminal immigrants poses a serious danger to Texans. These detainers provide ICE with the critical notice and time it needs to take incarcerated immigrants into federal custody.” Valdez had been releasing illegals who had minor criminal offenses. Some of these illegals have turned their minor criminal offenses into major offenses since being released.
Governor Abbott takes a bold stand against the leftist sanctuary narrative that Governors around the state need to adopt. We will no longer accept illegals in our cities or state. We will always put our citizens first and deport illegals that are caught in our states. Illegal immigration has no place in Texas or any state. Furthermore anyone who upholds sanctuary policies needs to be fined or arrested for violating the law. I'm glad that Governor Abbott is taking a stand against the Obama cronies and sanctuary cities that violate State and Federal immigration laws.
