In the past year, the idea of “sanctuary cities” has been one gleefully accepted by leftist government bodies and social justice warriors.

Their rebellion against the national law is due to what they conceived as “safe spaces” – in other words, areas where illegal alien groups are supposedly “protected”.

But now, one state government in particular is making a stand against the ridiculous construct of these “sanctuary cities”.

Texas recently initiated legislation that would ban “sanctuary cities” statewide.

Governor Greg Abbott has had very little tolerance on the subject, and is pushing to abolish the safe-space cities in his state.

The Blaze reports:

Today, the Texas Senate held a preliminary vote for SB 4, presented by state Sen. Charles Perry that would ban sanctuary cities from the state. The bill itself has been one of Abbott’s top priorities for some time. The bill passed in a party line 20-11 vote.

Needless to say, the Governor was pleased, and released this statement.

“As Governor, I will not tolerate sanctuary city policies that put the citizens of Texas at risk. Elected officials do not get to pick and choose which laws they will obey. Today’s action in the Senate helps ensure that Sheriffs and officials across Texas comply with federal immigration laws and honor Immigration and Custom Enforcement detainer requests that keep dangerous criminals off of our streets. I want to thank Senator Perry for his leadership on this issue..

The bill passed without any hindrance in the Texas state Senate.

The Blaze reports:

Under Senate Bill 4, law enforcement in cities, counties and on college campuses would have to hold an arrested person in custody while US Customs and Immigration Enforcement looks into his or her immigration status. If the entities fail to do so, they could be denied state grant money.

Essentially, the new legislation threatens to cut funding from any local police force known to be harboring illegal immigrants or any city labeling themselves as a “sanctuary city”.

Governor Abbott has a clear zero-tolerance policy when it comes to obeying the laws of his state.

One example of his intolerance is how he dealt with an insubordinate sheriff.

The Blaze reports:

Abbott has also had to come down on Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez, who outright refused to work with ICE and instructed her office not to do so as well. In response, Abbot threatened, in no uncertain terms, to cut her millions of dollars worth of funding if she does not reverse the policy.

One thing is certain, more states should follow in the steps of Governor Abbott.

As the nation readjusts under its new leadership, policies and solid plans are being put into place by President Trump to secure the safety of the American people.

The Blaze reports:

The measure comes just days after President Donald Trump signed an executive order that strips sanctuary states and cities of federal funding if they “attempt to shield aliens from deportation.”

And there is no place for sanctuary cities in that plan.

Do you agree sanctuary cities are useless and an illegal safety threat to the American people?
