Good. People like this sheriff need to be removed from office. Only people that this hurts are the citizens.



Next, he is rushing legislation to get passed that removes any elected official that is not complying with the law.

This is a great move by Abbott. I'd like to see Trump cut off funding not just to sanctuary cities, but all funding to states that allow sanctuary cities. They'd learn real quick.

There has not been a Sheriff elected in Travis County in over 100 decades that upholds the Constitution. It is a Good `ol boy(and Dyke) network.

You're attacking Texas, Florida, North Dakota, Louisiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Georgia, Kentucky, and other red states then. Should go over real well.

I've seen Austin as in trouble since the election. The brain drain will begin, and tech jobs will shift to the PNW and Northeast. Then again, that was before we informed many countries not to send their best and brightest here due to the uncertainty of discrimination. I guess we'll all sink together.

Refugees from Syria and Yemen along with illegals coming across our southern borders might not be the best and brightest.

No one informed the best and brightest of other countries about the uncertainty of discrimination. That's just a false premise the loony left plays in order to deflect from their horrific policies.

The sad part is unAmericans like yourself dont think we have the best and brightest available here to do the jobs. Take care of Americans first.

You on the left are so clueless - the only ones that benefit by living in a sanctuary city are illegal criminals. It's not benefitting illegal immigrants that follow the laws. It's hurting all he law abiding citizens by leaving these people in the city and not deporting them - allowing them to commit criminal actions again.
