In the past eight years or so, conservatives have pushed for a federal government that actually enforced federal immigration laws. The purpose of those laws is to protect the taxpaying citizenry from a) having to absorb the poor indigents from other countries that require public assistance to survive, b) invasion by illegal foreign indigents who bring with them things like communicable diseases and criminal records, c) a skyrocketing crime rate because of illegal immigrants who weren’t properly screened, and d) criminal drug cartels chasing Texas ranchers off their own property with violence.
Because of the Liberals’ ‘compassionate’ concern for the cultures around the world who have no respect for the rule of law, now western societies are under the threat of being over run by out-of-control hordes of foreign invaders looking for new lands to conquer.
This brings us to the subject at hand which is sanctuary cities, where Liberals argue are the ‘safe spaces’ for illegal immigrants to maintain reside and thereby avoiding any deportation based upon their illegal status or their criminal record. A sanctuary county in Texas has defied both their governor and president, and the hammer has finally been dropped on them.
From Right Wing News:
Travis County Sheriff “Sanctuary Sally” Hernandez has fallen out of the graces of Governor Abbott, who has bluntly stated that if she continues to defy the rule of law, he will cut off millions of dollars to the county. So far, she’s not budging. Texas Governor Greg Abbott made abolishing sanctuary jurisdictions in Texas an emergency item for this year’s legislative session and a bill is speeding through that would enforce that move. I love Governor Abbott.
Sheriff Hernandez’s defiance could end up costing the City of Austin $125 million in state and federal grants.
Conservative Tribune reported:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is not one to tolerate dissension in the ranks.
Travis County, Texas, home of the state capital, Austin, may lose millions in state funding because of the county’s sanctuary policies when a bill outlawing them passes the state legislature, reports Breitbart.
The legislation, S.B. 4, contains provisions to cut funding from any “local entity” refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
According to the bill, which has already passed the Texas Senate:
“A local entity may not receive state grant funds if the entity adopts, enforces, or endorses a policy under which the entity prohibits or discourages the enforcement of immigration laws or, by consistent actions, prohibits or discourages the enforcement of immigration laws.”
Unfortunately for Travis County, what’s at stake is a staggering $125 million in state and federal grants that come from the governor’s office, according to Abbott’s spokesman, John Wittman, speaking with Breitbart.
Of course we can thank Barack Obama for this attitude of defiance and lawlessness among Progressives that has swept across the country. The very same attitude that characterized his entire eight year presidency.
What should happen now is for all the bratty Liberals who’ve had their way for the majority of a decade need to get their behinds spanked by responsible conservatives like Gov. Abbot and learn what the word “NO!” means!
