Texas Sheriff Turns Criminal Aliens Loose on Citizens

The whole idea of sanctuary cities is absurd. That local politicians and law enforcement personnel would deliberately choose to violate the law and encourage others to do the same in the name of leftist politics is not only abhorrent, but is criminal. They are essentially telling people who are in this country illegally to come to their cities for protection against the nation's immigration laws.

Records obtained by Breitbart Texas from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office revealed that “Sanctuary Sally” released 37 criminal aliens from custody on February 1. Two more criminal aliens were released on the following day. The sheriff’s office stated that Sheriff Hernandez declined 191 immigration detainers that were received by her office before February 1. Eight more immigration detainers received after February 1 were also declined. The sheriff also declined four requests from immigration officials to be notified of the pending release of the criminal aliens in her custody.

This sort of rebellion does not come cheap. Travis County, which contains the state capital of Austin, stands to lose not only its federal law enforcement grants over this outrage, but state grants as well. As the governor of Texas points out, he's not happy about the situation at all.

As we said, this sort of rebellion does not come cheap.

Governor Abbott moved on the day of the sheriff’s sanctuary county policy announcement and stripped state grants from the department, Breitbart Texas reported. Travis County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Kristen Dark confirmed the move by the sheriff to protect criminal aliens from federal officials will cost the taxpayers of Travis County $1.5 million this year. She also confirmed the sheriff is aware her department could also lose federal law enforcement grants if the Department of Justice certifies the county is not cooperating 100 percent with immigration officials under existing federal law.

All of this to please leftist, political-correctness advocates by either shielding criminals from enforcement actions, or turning them loose on the people.

In a different time, the people would never stand for this criminal lunacy. What about now?
