“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. It will include things such as further defunding them. It will impose fines. And it could impose jail time for these sheriffs to enforce the laws. Oddly enough these sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these criminals from.” – Greg Abbott
In an ironic twist of fate Sherrifs who refuse to enforce immigration law can end up in the same prison they release illegal immigrants from. Abbott also promised to be more aggressive with the financial end of things. The law allows further defunding of sanctuary cities as well as fines for refusing to enforce immigration law. It looks like Texas isn't going to put up with people who refuse to enforce the law.
Some people feel this is too harsh, others feel that it's necessary, how do you feel?[totalpoll id=”1921″] [mks_button size=”medium” title=”Source: Breitbart” style=”rounded” url=”http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/03/30/tx-gov-abbott-will-sign-legislation-put-sheriffs-sanctuary-cities-jail/” target=”_blank” bg_color=”#d14714″ txt_color=”#FFFFFF” icon=”fa-newspaper-o” icon_type=”fa” nofollow=”0″]
