Sanctuary cities are where illegals dreams come true, and where some legal citizens get killed. Well, leave it to the Texas House of Representatives to raise one middle finger with one hand, and hulk smash these enclaves of suck with the other.
Late last night, the Texas House passed a measure banning them in the state. But wait, there’s more…
The Republican-controlled Texas House approved a strict ban on “sanctuary cities” early Thursday in the country’s second-largest state, seeking to empower law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law against anyone they detain and threatening to jail police chiefs and sheriffs who refuse to do so.
The bill would allow Texas to withhold funding from county and local governments for acting as sanctuary cities – even as the Trump administration’s efforts to do so nationally have hit roadblocks. Other Republican-led states have pushed for similar polices, but Texas would be the first in which police chiefs and other officials could face criminal charges and be removed from office for not helping enforce immigration law.
Simplified: Texas can do across the state what Trump can not do nationally (see Liberal Judge Appointed by Obama Blocks Trump’s Sanctuary City Order). The state can withhold funding and punish law enforcement officials who refuse to enforce immigration laws. Makes sense.
Sanctuary cities are a real problem (see Lansing, MI Proudly Becomes Sanctuary City Only to Reverse it One Week Later and Massachusetts Sheriff: Arrest Sanctuary City Officials Who Disobey Federal Law). Cities which harbor people who invaded America are not safe for actual Americans. Pains me that such a statement needs to be repeated as often as Michael Moore jumps the line at Krispy Kreme, but alas. It must be done. Pass me a coffee.
I believe a wise man once said…
So kudos to the giant state for leading the way here. Except now all the illegals will go to California. Sucks to be you guys.
