Tea Party: “The newly elected sheriff of Travis County, Texas, Sally Hernandez, announced she will not comply with federal immigration policies, but Gov. Abbott is not standing for it! Abbott stated in an official letter, “As sheriff, your primary duty is to ensure the safety of the residents of Travis County. However, your recent policy directive…betrays your oath and the residents of Travis County. I strongly urge you to reverse that policy before its effective date of February 1, 2017.”
“This is not a pronouncement of sound public policy; it is a dangerous game of political Russian roulette — with the lives of Texans at stake,” Abbott continued.
He warned Hernandez that if she did not undo her sanctuary decisions before the beginning of February in her county, a county that includes the city of Austin, then she will lose her funding.”
“Many of these illegal aliens are criminals and have been convicted of murder, rape, human trafficking, drug deals, and child sex trafficking to name a few.
While the sheriff thinks she is doing something “good” for the poor illegals of the world, she is only hurting the American people in the long run. She will lose funding for her county and will be putting the people she swore to protect in danger.”
The property values in Austin were climbing.
