BOOM! After Texas BANS Sanctuary Cities- LOOK What’s Happening NOW


Unlike his more liberal counterparts, Texas governor Greg Abbott is taking decisive action to protect the good tax paying citizens of his state by signing into law SB 4.  This bill seeks to deter as well a take punitive measures against local cities and counties such as Austin from the implementation of sanctuary policies.


The sponsors of the bill state that their goals are to stop the Lone Star state from becoming a sanctuary state for criminal aliens.  They want it known far and wide that criminals will not find a haven in their state.  They will be removed.  They will be deported from the country rather than remaining in Texas at the expense of the good citizens of the state.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has already taken pro-active steps to file lawsuits against local jurisdictions that have been accused of refusing to cooperate with federal immigration agents.  This is a preemptive bid to head off numerous legal challenges.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.  Meanwhile, Gov. Greg Abbott signed the crackdown which prohibits sanctuary policies from being implemented.  The bill also gives local law enforcement the right to ascertain the immigration status of anyone they stop. Under this newly implemented law, any local officers that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agents could potentially face jail time and fines up to $25,000 per day.

The Paxton-filed suit names Travis County, the city of Austin, as well as several local officials as defendants.  The suit requests that the court uphold the constitutionality of the new law.

Paxton states in the lawsuit –

SB 4 is constitutional, lawful and a vital step in securing our borders. Unfortunately, some municipalities and law enforcement agencies are unwilling to cooperate with the federal government and claim that SB 4 is unconstitutional.”

Another specifically named in the lawsuit is Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez.  She has specifically stopped her deputies from asking about immigration status and tied their hand by limiting their cooperation with federal immigration officials. Hernandez has said the county would follow the terms of the new law despite her vehement opposition to it.

According to local Texas affiliate KXAN Sheriff Hernandez states –

“While I hate seeing a state law like this come to pass, I have always followed the law and that will not change.”

The Austin police department is challenging the Attorney General and Governor Abbot claiming they are ” reviewing the language of the newly approved law, SB4″ as though somehow sanctuary policies and immigration laws are not crystal clear. The Austin Police Chief issued a statement attempting to make the same sorry excuse that liberals always make in attempting the excuse these sanctuary policies at the expense of American citizens, claiming that illegal aliens will not report crimes.

Chief Brian Manley said in the statement –

 “The Austin Police Department has worked hard to build and maintain trust, communication and stronger relationships with our communities through outreach programs and community policing. This effort and engagement will continue. With the passage of this law, we want our minority community to maintain their trust in us, if you see or are a victim of a criminal act we want you to call us and report it.”
