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.

  1. I'm looking for where to post the following link. I suppose this thread is more on-topic than others: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/05/01/tancredo-memo-president-trump-two-border-patrol-patriots-still-awaiting-justice/

    I like this bc it would be a further refutation of Bushism. It's a simple act President Trump would probably like, bc it's symbolic with no likely political repercussions.

  2. The Sheriff is the law of the land and this Sheriff was
    elected unlike Oregon's where the Bundy's were held without
    bail.
    Mexico's Juarez City is the most dangerous place in the world. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico ~ just across the border from El Paso, Texas has long been coveted by Mexico's narco traffickers, representing a gateway into the voracious U.S. drug market.

    Look to the borders.

  3. "Republicans had hoped to include language in the recent spending bill stripping more funds from sanctuary cities, but congressional Democrats said they would force a government shutdown over the matter, and the GOP backed away."

    Why do the Republicans fear a government shutdown? The last time the Republicans shutdown the government (2014) the Republicans won the Senate in the next election giving them three branches.

    Republicans, stop getting pushed around by a minority. It's time to dump the RINOs. Good work, Gov. Abbott.

      Yes, they were blamed for it, but recovered.
