Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed the country’s toughest anti-sanctuary city law Sunday, moving not only to fine jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agents but even threatening jail time for the sheriffs or police chiefs who refuse to cooperate.
Elected or appointed officials who approve sanctuary policies could be ousted from office under the new law, which takes effect Sept. 1.
The law also permits police and sheriff’s departments to inquire about the immigration status of those they stop during routine business.
