Texas Governor Cuts Cash for Sanctuary County

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s office confirmed to Breitbart Texas he has cut state law enforcement grants to Travis County after the sheriff’s new sanctuary policies went into effect on February 1.

The move comes one day after Governor Abbott declared the issue of sanctuary cities to be an emergency item for the Texas Legislature to address this session. “Some law enforcement officials in Texas are openly refusing to enforce existing law,” Abbott stated during his State of the State Address. “That is unacceptable.”

The governor followed through on his promises and announced the stripping of Travis County from state law enforcement grants. “Today I cut funding to Travis County because of its Sanctuary City policy,” Abbott Tweeted. “Stiffer penalties coming soon.”

Those “stiffer penalties” could come from SB4, authored by Senator Charles Perry (R-Lubbock). “I am excited that Governor Abbott stood up for the rule of law by declaring the banning of Sanctuary Cities an emergency item during his State of the State Address,” Sen. Perry said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Texans everywhere expect their elected officials to uphold the rule of law. We cannot allow local officials to implement dangerous policies that make it easier for individuals who commit serious crimes to be placed back into our communities.”

    Law enforcement officers who fail to enforce the law should face criminal charges and removal from their positions. If law enforcement officers are allowed to ignore immigration laws what keeps them from refusing to go after murderers, rapists, bank robbers, etc. Once public officials are allowed to pick and choose which laws they will follow it is only a matter of time until they will fail to enforce a whole lot of other laws.

I live in Birmingham Ala and our city council is trying to vote the same for us with no thought to what the outcome could be.

    Liberals have no respect for the law. The law is what they want it to be. Violence is OK. Suppression is OK. Meanness and Ugliness is OK. Murder is even OK. As long as those things are not being done to them. As long as they are not the victim. Liberals are the most two faced people on the face of the earth. Comes from a weak mind and not being able to think for yourself. Puppets of the elite.
