Texas Looks to Jail Sheriffs of Sanctuary Cities


How far do you think the government should go to make people comply with immigration laws? For many, the idea that the federal government could force things on cities and counties is going too far. But, what about the state?

If immigration laws are a federal affair, then can states impose penalties on Sanctuary Cities and Counties? Governor Abbott of Texas seems to think so.

On Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said he will confront the issue of cities that refuse to comply with immigration law by signing legislation that could jail sheriffs of sanctuary cities.

Abbott said, “We have been pushing a piece of legislation in Texas that is going to pass that I will be signing into law that imposes even sterner penalties on counties. It will include things such as further defunding them. It will impose fines. And it could impose jail time for these sheriffs to enforce the laws. Oddly enough these sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these criminals from.”

The thought that these sheriffs could face jail time for not complying might seem harsh. No doubt, many on the Left will cry foul if this bill becomes law. But, once again, we see that the Left does not like it when the shoe is on the other foot.

Just a few years ago, many of those who will oppose this law were all for magistrates facing jail time for “not doing their job.” The forced conformity of magistrates like Kim Davis over the same-sex union issue was good in the eyes of most Democrats.

Now, will they show their hypocrisy on this issue?
