    Texas Governor Cuts Cash for Sanctuary County

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s office confirmed to Breitbart Texas he has cut state law enforcement grants to Travis County after the sheriff’s new sanctuary policies went into effect on February 1.

    The move comes one day after Governor Abbott declared the issue of sanctuary cities to be an emergency item for the Texas Legislature to address this session. “Some law enforcement officials in Texas are openly refusing to enforce existing law,” Abbott stated during his State of the State Address. “That is unacceptable.”

    The governor followed through on his promises and announced the stripping of Travis County from state law enforcement grants. “Today I cut funding to Travis County because of its Sanctuary City policy,” Abbott Tweeted. “Stiffer penalties coming soon.”

    Those “stiffer penalties” could come from SB4, authored by Senator Charles Perry (R-Lubbock). “I am excited that Governor Abbott stood up for the rule of law by declaring the banning of Sanctuary Cities an emergency item during his State of the State Address,” Sen. Perry said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Texans everywhere expect their elected officials to uphold the rule of law. We cannot allow local officials to implement dangerous policies that make it easier for individuals who commit serious crimes to be placed back into our communities.”

    The word of the governor’s actions against Travis County Sheriff “Sanctuary Sally” Hernandez spread quickly.

    Texas Tribune writer Patrick Svitek tweeted out the news, calling it a standoff between the governor and the new sheriff. “.@GovAbbott‘s office confirms it has canceled its criminal justice grants to Travis County, making good on threat in “sanctuary” standoff,” he Tweeted.

    Breitbart Texas reported Travis County stood to lose about $1.8 million in state grants. The county could also face the loss of federal grant money if the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General certifies the county as not being 100 percent in compliance with requests from immigration officials.

    Thank you Governor Abbott. I hope the Governor's in ALL our States follow your lead and do the same.

    She does not enforce the Law...then relieve her of her duties immediately.

    Protect American citizens...not criminal trespassing illegal aliens.

    Do not reward...deport within 24 hours.

    No papers, no entry, no detention, no free pass.

    Protesters in opposition to Travis Co. cuts rally outside Governor’s Mansion

    KXAN Staff

    AUSTIN (KXAN) — “Immigrants are welcome here, don’t give in to racist fear,” the group of about 100 chanted outside the Governor’s Mansion in Austin, Friday night.

    Many were protesting several immigration items, including rumors about Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids coming to Travis County.

    One woman KXAN spoke with said she was there for her two grandchildren. “I don’t want them to be raised in a world where they are condemned for who they are. They are beautiful loving boys and I want them to stay that way.”

    Protesters were there to speak out against Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to cut funding from Travis County over Sheriff Sally Hernandez’s ICE detainer policy. Jonea Raney said she was at the protest because her godsons are of Mexican heritage. “We’re supposed to love our neighbor, we’re supposed to help each other, so why would you cut funding from families that are depending on that help?”

    While the protest was peaceful, troopers did have to step in to take away signs left on the gates of the Mansion.

    Because your Sheriff is violating federal law by aiding, abetting and protecting illegal aliens who are violating federal immigration law. All states have an obligation to abide federal law.

    I never hear anyone asking "why isn't Mexico a good neighbor helping their own people"?

    They blame the United States for their problems and expect us to fund their freebies!
