Governor Greg Abbott Stands Strong Against Austin Becoming a Sanctuary City

There are more than enough sanctuary cities, which flout federal law and refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities. Yet newly elected Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez is attempting to create another out of greater Austin, the San Francisco of Texas. Governor Greg Abbott is having none of it:

Abbott on Monday told Austin’s sheriff that her jail would become the first in the state to lose taxpayer money over so-called “sanctuary cities” policies unless she reverses plans to curtail working with federal immigration authorities by February.

The governor has previously threatened other “sanctuary cities” in Texas, and ultimately did not withhold funds … but has not delivered such a direct ultimatum before now.

Looks like this time he is serious. The climate is different, with a new sheriff in Washington.

Austin’s moonbat sheriff picked the wrong time to start reading from Obama’s outdated playbook:

Hernandez on Friday – in a defiantly timed announcement after Trump was inaugurated – said starting Feb. 1 she would end her predecessor’s policy of honoring all jail detainers sought by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Hernandez is a Democrat whose campaign in Texas’ most liberal city partly ran on promises to change how detainers are handled.

Trump will go a long way toward proving conservative critics wrong about his sincerity if he puts an end to the sanctuary city nonsense — which it looks like he is doing.

    This may or may not have already been posted but i dont care, due to the overwhelming epicness, i am reposting it. The icing on the icing is he punked the vile Wendy Davis aka Abortion Barbie. This is the lady that ran against Governor Abbott in 2014. Not only did she get pummeled in the gubernatorial election but in the SAME election her senate seat in south Tarrant county was lost to a republican HAHAHAHAHAHA!!,_2014

    Props to Crowder for being able to maintain his composure and not either laughing his ass off in the middle of all this or not euthanizing as many as possible.

    Will Abbott stand strong and carry through? Or will he weasel out again?

  3. rambler says:

    What is it with people who want to protect the illegal invader at the expense of the American citizen? There is nothing which should ever justify the creation of a sanctuary city. Those elected are to protect the legal residents of this country or they are free to go elsewhere.

    York, Pa. mayor to announce signing of ‘welcome city’ executive order for illegal aliens..

    eating crow is going to suck for those who knew what Trump would or wouldnt do
    maybe THATS his motivation, make idiots eat crow and enjoying watching

    they want the blacks to rise up and attack white males for the reasons that the white males who dont own the restaurants are not hiring them, and the whites who are not driving cabs are not picking them up either, and on and on..

    ie. you make friends of spanish harboring illegals, you make the blacks hate the white guys for not hiring them and so think your going to make friends of blacks too against the people, and so on

    the problem is which group was dumb enough to elect that and wait 8 years to find out all hope no change…

    Because they genuinely believe the bizarre notion that only Rich White Men are capable of the sort of personal wickedness that makes an act a crime. Everyone else–the poor, nonwhites, and women–are only responding to stimuli, and so we must take away the unpleasant stimuli so that they can behave well.

    Never mind that this means they regard everyone but Rich White Men as having less personal moral agency than houseplants…

    She’s a Democrat. nuff said.

    Would have been a great opportunity for an air strike.

    Will Abbott order this sheriff arrested of she continues to violate the law? How about Not Hillary? Will he order the feds(FBI, US Marshals) to move into cities and take down the corrupt politicians who are flagrantly violating the law and incarcerate them?

    If they do, what will the enemy response be? Complacency or rebellion? The enemy has sworn to defy immigration law, multiple federal offenses for each alien with years in prison for each count. Either Abbot and Not Hillary will or they will not go the distance. Who blinks first? The potential for escalation to full scale civil war is massive on just this one issue. Less because what passes for conservative these days are willing to enforce existing law and more because the Progressives are batshit crazy.

    You may want to send him a copy of 8 U.S. Code § 1324. It will be the source of any charges filed against him though I doubt anyone has the sand to actually do it.

  15. […] Governor Greg Abbott stands strong against Austin becoming a sanctuary city (Dave Blount) […]

  16. […] The seditious “sanctuary city” nonsense has gone far enough. This is a nation of laws. Those who don’t like the laws can work to change them. Jurisdictions that declare that they will not honor the law are in a state of revolt and should be treated accordingly. No matter how many moonbats choke Austin, Texas Governor Greg Abbott will not let this crap fly in Travis County: […]
