Illegal immigration has been one of the fundamental issues facing our American society in recent years, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott is fed up with it.
Abbott’s home state of Texas is ground zero for the epidemic of illegal immigration into this nation. Sharing an enormous border with Mexico, the Lone Star State is prime real estate for nefarious evil doers from south of the border to enter America, bringing with them drugs and violence on an unparalleled scale.
While many in Texas are aware of the constant threats posed by an open border with our southern neighbor, who themselves are oppressed by unbelievably brutal drug wars and cartel kingpins, there are some globalist holdouts in the state. So-called “sanctuary cities” are popping up in Texas, as they are in the rest of the nation, encouraging illegals to congregate en masse without the fear of legal action being taken against them.
These areas are the epitome of the #Resist movement aimed at undermining the authority of President Donald Trump and the patriotic Americans who are involved in the great conservative uprising of the 21st century. Texas Governor Greg Abbott recognizes that, and is now threatening the leaders of these 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.’”
When you speak of jailing sheriffs, people know that you mean business.
Abbott’s concerns over the leeway given to these illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities is well founded. Over the course of the last several years, a myriad of murder, assault, and criminality has plagued these locales, who are handcuffed by their own government when it comes to punishing those guilty of these heinous crimes. Abbott is also cozying up to President Trump in a way that many liberals detest.
You see, President Trump is opposed by left for the simple reason that he was not their candidate. While Trump vows to simply enforce the laws that Americans have already put on the books, the left fights with every bit of their bleeding hearts to oppose him. It really wouldn’t matter what the President declared, liberals will fight it.
That is not a winning proposition for America, nor is it the way the Founder intended for our nation to govern itself.
