Texas Wins Big In War Against Sanctuary Cities

The great State of Texas has made a bold move in protecting its citizens from the dangers of criminal illegal migrants. As of the 1st of September, the “Sanctuary Cities Bill” will become law and allow law enforcement officials to do their jobs properly. One of the main features is that it will allow police officers to ask about someone’s immigration status if they have already been legally arrested and detained; many people are quite surprised that presently this is not allowed.

Another aspect of the bill is that it opens up Lawmakers and Police to charges if they fail to cooperate with Federal law regarding detainers on illegal immigrants who have been convicted of crimes.

These are not Draconian measures. they are not targeted at all illegal migrants. The purpose of this bill is to remove migrants who have “committed crimes in the US”. The most surprising aspect is that the bill has so many opponents. It is one thing to want to protect rights of people who happen to be in the country illegally (most are just looking for a better life), but to actively protect those that break the laws!?!?! The damage done to communities by migrant criminals who fail to be deported is a disgrace, and more often than not, it is other migrants who are the victims of these criminals.

 

As reported in Freedom Daily:


Immigration reform is at the forefront of the White House administration’s policies. There is no doubt by the end of his term as President he will have thoroughly cracked down and decreased the percentages of illegal immigration. On Friday the administration continued this work. They filed court papers by Texas state law that would punish sanctuary cities. A win for the American people.

The bill calls for jail time for specific sheriffs and police chiefs who do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement authorities. It is completely supported by almost all Republicans in the state legislature. As well, it is the first legislation approved in Texas since the inauguration of President Trump.

The Texas Tribune explained the bill in simple terms saying,

“Known as the “sanctuary cities” bill, the legislation allows local law enforcement officers to question the immigration status of people they legally detain or arrest. It also punishes local government department heads and elected officials who don’t cooperate with federal immigration “detainers” — requests by agents to turn over immigrants subject to possible deportation.

Why is it that American citizens seem to be the least considered group in many States? This is the main reason that the Left, and more specifically, the DNC, are losing each and every election…Because they do not put America First! They are in thrall to a failed ideological system that has never worked anywhere on the planet. It is time to start valuing the lives and safety of all the people in America, native-born and migrants…Deport the criminals!

If you think that this Law should be rolled out across the country, share the article with your friends and let’s work together to make this happen!
