Texas Senate Voted To Ban “Sanctuary Cities”—Passed: 20-11

Back in January 2017, Texas Governor Greg Abbott promised to rid the state of “sanctuary cities.” This situation seems a proverbial cake walk. Immigration laws are beset upon places for legitimate reasons and are enforced as other laws are. It’s poor form and bad policy to be choosy in terms of ignoring and/or adhering to certain laws.
