Texas County Still Wanted To Stay Sanctuary…Gov Abbott Has Cut The Gravy Train Off!

Governor Abbott has just done something that I had to do once with someone I know. I remember one time I gave a relative money when it seemed they were down on their luck. It could have been maybe a couple hundred bucks, enough to certainly take care of the groceries for a while.

Anyway, I went to their house one time to say hello and found out that they had spent all the money on beer. Their fridge was totally empty and they had nothing but beer cans strewn all about their place. I never gave that person a dime again.

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. At this time, “(t)he governor’s office is currently evaluating how much of that $125 million could be taken away under S.B. 4.”

Yikes.

The sheriff of the county, “Sanctuary Sally” Hernandez, has been under fire from conservatives for following what she says is her own conscience with regard to immigration cooperation rather than following any objective guidelines like, say, the laws she’s supposed to be enforcing.

“I just don’t think you solve the criminal justice process by deporting (illegals). We talk about being progressive. I believe we need to lead the way,” she said last August in an interview with the Texas Tribune.

Apparently, Hernandez believes that the better way to solve the “criminal justice process” is by ignoring the rule of law.
