Texas Governor Strips Funding from Sanctuary Cities
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has only been on the job for about a year, but he has already made his mark on the nation around him. Abbott has stood against Planned Parenthood, he has fought back against the gun grabbing attempts of the fascist liberal left, and now he has acting to end the scourge of Sanctuary cities in the Lone Star State.
While President Obama chooses to dither and obfuscate the issue, and our legislature continues to fully fund Sanctuary cities around the country, we need more courageous Governors to stand up and follow Abbott’s lead.
Sanctuary Cities across the country flaunt federal law and give shelter and aid to criminal illegal aliens in open defiance of our federal government… and yet the federal authorities do nothing. In fact, the Democrat Party continues to encourage the lawlessness these cities are breeding. Because of this utter disdain for the rule of law, it is incumbent upon our Governors to protect us from the criminal negligence of the federal government and their liberal Sanctuary Cities.
Abbott has taken the first step in this direction by stripping state funding from sheriffs in Sanctuary Cities. This order comes in the wake of Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez’s decision to allow criminal illegal aliens in her jails to be released back into Texas instead of being turned over to ICE.
