Austin, Tx: Sanctuary Sheriff Sally Hernandez | James Pat Guerréro

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX)


Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez risks losing federal taxpayer dollars for continuing sanctuary city policies, according to the Texas Governor Greg Abbott. In a desperate move, she affirms to dishonor federal immigration official policies to honor jailing detainers, saying it drives “people into the shadows.” As of February 1, 2017 Sheriff Hernandez will lose federal funds in the form of criminal justice grants (about 1.8 million) and make less safe the city of Austin and Travis County, Texas.
