BREAKING: Texas Just Defied Obama, Makes Massive Move To DESTROY Illegal “Sanctuary Cities”

Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott is, once again taking a strong stand against the Obama regime’s attempts to give ILLEGAL ALIENS citizenship via executive fiat. Now he’s taking a bold stand against ‘sanctuary cities’ in the Lone Star State!

Abbott wrote a strongly worded letter to Sheriff Lupe Valdez about her recent decision to consider honoring immigration detainers on a “case-by-case” basis. The governor said sanctuary city policies like this will “no longer be tolerated in Texas.”

After Lupez announced her decision NOT to honor federal law that requires detaining illegal aliens, Abbott hit back hard and accused the sheriff of endangering the citizen’s of Texas.

In the letter, reported by BOB PRICE at Breitbart, Abbott writes:

“Your decision to not fully honor U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) requests to detain criminal immigrants poses a serious danger to Texans. These detainers provide ICE with the critical notice and time it needs to take incarcerated immigrants into federal custody.”

“Your refusal to fully participate in a federal law enforcement program intended to keep dangerous criminals off the streets leaves the State no choice but to take whatever actions are necessary to protect our fellow Texans,” Abbott writes. “Now more than ever, it is essential that state, federal, and local law enforcement work collaboratively to protect our fellow Texans and to ensure that our laws are upheld, not disregarded.”

“At a minimum, Texas must pass laws that prohibit any policy or action like yours that promote sanctuary to people in this state illegally. The state must make it illegal for a sheriff’s department not to honor a federal immigration detainer request. Texas must evaluate the extent to which local taxpayers should foot the bill for local decisions that increase costs for our health and education systems.”

The governor laid out actions he and the state of Texas could take in response to the renegade actions of this sheriff. Those include the following:

  • Passing laws that prohibit any policy or action that promotes sanctuary to people in this state illegally.
  • Enacting laws that make it illegal for a Sheriff’s Department to not honor a federal immigration detainer request.
  • Evaluating the extent to which local taxpayers should foot the bill for local decisions that increase costs for Texas’ health and education systems.
  • Amending the Tort Claims Act to ensure counties are fully financially responsible for the actions of any illegal immigrants who are released because the county’s Sheriff failed to honor an ICE detainer request.

“Now more than ever it is essential that state, federal, and local law enforcement work collaboratively to protect our fellow Texans and to ensure that our laws are upheld, not disregarded,” Abbott concluded.

NO AMNESTY FULLSIZE

Conservative Tribune adds:

As a former attorney general for Texas and now as its governor, Abbott has been leading the legal battle 26 states are waging against Obama’s executive action on immigration because the states maintain Obama is acting lawlessly.

As a law enforcement officer, Valdez shouldn’t need to be told to uphold the law. Abbott deserves the thanks of Americans everywhere, but especially in Texas, where he’s drawn the line against “sanctuary cities” for illegal aliens.
