Texas Governor Greg Abbott Threatens to Jail Sheriffs of Sanctuary Counties

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Threatens to Jail Sheriffs of Sanctuary Counties

Donald Trump is getting tough on sanctuary cities — but he’s not alone in the fight. He has Attorney General Jeff Sessions by his side, and a smattering of Republican governors as well.

This week, Sessions vowed to speed up the deportation process and threatened steep budget cuts for governments that don’t comply.

The leaders of these so-called “sanctuary cities” were quick to respond. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti called the threats “unconstitutional.” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed to fight back, saying “we’ll see them in court.”

But not everyone is fighting the Trump administration’s law enforcement efforts. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is doing more than lending his support. He’s willing to sign legislation that will take the president’s threats even further. And he’ll need to, because one country in Texas is still refusing to comply with orders from either administration.
