Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is pledging to ban sanctuary cities in his state even as other governors and mayors promise to continue sheltering illegal immigrants.
“I’m going to sign a law that bans sanctuary cities,” Abbott tweeted on Sunday.
“Also I’ve already issued an order cutting funding to sanctuary cities.”
On Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Abbott explains:
“I think that banning sanctuary cities should be upheld in court. Texas is going to be one of the states that passes a law that outlaws sanctuary cities because it is fundamental that law enforcement officers in this state follow and apply the Constitution, the laws of the United States and the state of Texas.”
