Texas Governor, Greg Abbott called into the Steve Malzberg show to discuss sanctuary cities plaguing certain counties in his great state. He said he would sign legislation that could put Sheriffs of sanctuary cities in jail.
Here we go, folks! Don’t mess with Texas!
Steve Malzberg: “I know you brought up the possibility of jailing such Sheriffs recently.”
Greg Abbott: “We have. It’s a two-step process. One, as Governor I could unilaterally use my office. To take funds away from Travis County that had been previously granted. To them under Governor’s grants for criminal justice reasons and we have defunded them to the tune of $1.5 million.
In addition to that, 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. Uh it will also include things such as further defunding them and it could impose jail time for the Sheriffs to enforce the laws.
Oddly enough these Sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these very criminals from.”
