Skip to comments.TX Sheriff Refuses to Deport Illegals, So Greg Abbott ANNIHILATED Her

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.
This could mean that the county will lose Criminal Justice Division grant money, which would not affect the country until later in the year, but the $1.8 million that was granted last year will be depleted by October of this year.
This will greatly affect the juvenile justice system in Travis County, according to Judge Sarah Eckhardt. It hits the sheriffs office very little at all, she stated. It hits the county attorneys office, the district attorneys office, the civil court system, and the juvenile probation system. It hardly touches the sheriffs department.
However, financial support is not the only worry this sanctuary will bring to the American people residing in Travis County, as mentioned in Abbotts letter. 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.
According to the new sheriffs policy, the department officials shall not conduct or initiate any immigration status investigation into individuals in custody or provide information on an inmates release date or address to ICE.
This means she is going to be letting criminal aliens go free with no reprimand. Hopefully, she will strongly consider the governors threats and undo her new policies because they will bring nothing but destruction to the Lone Star state.
Our sheriffs have a duty to the American people, not to the illegals who squat in this country and take advantage of what it has to offer. If you wish to immigrate to this country, go ahead, but do so legally. These sanctuary cities should not be implemented they are nothing but a slap in the face to every single hard-working American in this nation. Hopefully, Hernandezs stance will change.
This one word explains how and why this idiot woman is acting like an idiot. Good for Gov. Abbott. Not only will he pull state funding from Austin - Trump will do the same with federal funding!
Why is it that juries are always admonished to “follow the law” but elected officials give themselves the right to determine what the law is?
If she’s not fired, she’ll continue to look the other way & not follow the law. She needs to go. Fire her!!
Can’t she’s elected and is in Austin, the boil on the butt of Texas.
How can a law enforcement officer arbitrarily decide which laws will be enforced and which ones won’t? I would say that the citizens of the county should start a recall but, since it’s the moonbats in Austin/Travis County who elected her, that will never happen.
Keeping and adhering to the rule of law.
THIS ! This is what has every liberal snowflake in this country on up to the President of Mexico and other countries around the globe deathly afraid of Donald Trump.
No new laws have been passed in Trump’s presidency. He is only holding everyones feet to the fire and they cant stand it!
Dashes of truth makes them writhe in agony!
Looks like Sheriff Sally is doubling down on stupid.
The liberals in Austin are like the oozing puss from the boil on the butt of Texas.
"According to the new sheriffs policy, the department officials shall not conduct or initiate any immigration status investigation into individuals in custody or provide information on an inmates release date or address to ICE.
ICE should just park an agent outside the jail 24/7 and interview everyone who comes out.
Find an excuse to declare martial law, and send in the national guard
This fool is probably married to an illegal alien invader. To top it off, she is a lunatic.
This hyperbole frustrates me. If he didn't use an A-10 Gatling gun or a JDAM, she has not been annihilated.
Can she be impeached or otherwise removed for failing to keep her oath of office?
She is inspired by example - Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch...
but it’s Austin, the Kalifornia of Texas, never happen
