This just in—Texas Governor Greg Abbott has announced that he will be signing legislation that could put Sheriffs of sanctuary cities in jail.
Steve Malzberg: “What about jail? I know you b rought up the possibility of jailing such sheriffs recently.”
Texas Gov: “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 more than $1.5 million.”
Texas Gov: “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, it could impose fines, and it could impose jail time for the Sheriffs to enforce the laws.
Texas Gov: “Oddly enough these Sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these very criminals from.”
Hell yeah! This guy gets it. Why are we releasing illegal aliens that have committed heinous crimes? For every sanctuary city that still exists, we’re putting American lives at risk.
This is why you don’t mess with Texas, folks—they’ve got as much balls as they do guns…and they’ve got a lot of guns. Let’s see what else Governor Abbott said:
Steve Malzberg: “You know, here’s the argument that I hear from the Nancy Pelosi’s of the world, and I guess some of the governors as well, and we’ve already had the mayor of New York City, of Los Angeles, of Chicago, already come out and say ‘Oh no, I don’t care, we’re gonna fight to get those funds,’ but there’s an incredibly insane argument!”
“…we want to make sure that the illegals are okay with reporting a crime, so if they see a crime, we don’t want them to be afraid to go to the police. That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of!”
Texas Gov: “Well it’s a bogus argument, because here’s the premise of that argument: they’re saying that they’re going to promote obeying the law, by promoting lawlessness.”
BOOM. One sentence, and he just destroyed 90% of the arguments that libtards have for illegal immigration. But he doesn’t stop there…
Texas Gov: “It’s a flawed strategy, but the flawed strategy has been proven by Nancy Pelosi herself, because of what happened to Kate Steinle near Nancy Pelosi’s district. Kate Steinle lost her life, because of one of these people who’s in the country illegally, and had been repeatedly deported, and had a background.”
“…and this is something that Americans can not, and WILL NOT tolerate!”
Wow. With all of the Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi’s of the world, I feel so much safer knowing that we’ve got a badass patriot in charge down there in Texas. I know for a fact that if the shit every hits the fan, I’m gonna hole up down there with y’all.
