While major cities across the country plan to defy Trump on immigration, Texas Governor Greg Abbott says he’ll ban them.

“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.”

Abbott was responding to a Twitter user who questioned whether the Texas governor could do anything to reverse Austin’s pledge to remain a sanctuary city.

    He just wants to hurt the economy in liberal Texas cities. He really is a horrible governor. He doesn’t care about Texas or it’s people. He is just a pawn of the oligarchy that wants to extract as much wealth as possible from the %99. Anything goes for him, hurt Texans, destroy the environment, it doesn’t matter as long as the money flows to the top.

    Just the sort of fellow you’d want for a neighbor……not.

      Absolutely, positively NOT

    “I’m going to sign a law that bans sanctuary cities,” Abbott tweeted on Sunday. That’s assuming that first, the Texas lege considers such a bill in its next session and second that such a bill is passed. Not necessarily a given. As for his second statement, even in Texas the guv does not have the power to unilaterally “issue orders to cut off funding” to Texas cities. As usual Abbott is just blowing smoke to keep his talibagger base happy but now he can try to impress Herr Drumpf at the same time.

      You obviously don’t live in Texas. With this legislature it is a given it will be passed and signed in under 60 seconds.

      • Roctuna

        I’ve lived in Texas the last 36 years but I guess it’s not obvious. The lege didn’t consider this issue last session because the Tx House resisted as did many business interests. That’s also why a special session wasn’t called. Not a slam dunk by any means. There are too many influential business interests that need the undocumented labor.

        • rat618

          Certainly the business folks blocked Rick Perry from doing anything serious about undocumented labor, especially Bob Perry of Perry Homes and Charles Butt of HEB, However, with the growth of the Tea Party in Texas, the fear Abbott has of having Dan Patrick run against him, and the emboldening of harsh actions with Trump’s election I think there will be little push back to Abbott’s plans. And I have lived in Texas for all 4 of my 65 years.

      • RightThinkingOne

        I hope you are correct!

        • whatthe46

          i bet you consider yourself pro-life and a “christian” too huh?

          • RightThinkingOne

            Illogical and unrelated. Same pattern with you.

    • RightThinkingOne

      Hopefully, the legislature will cut all state funding to all “sanctuary cities.”

  • William

    Isn’t this the same moron who mobilized the Texas state Guard because he thought Jade Helm was the United States invading one of it’s own states? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/743aa76b44aeb7a41d22fe9dab180dff14a853127da32300e23e53e596e7d3c8.jpg

      They need to take the money he spent on that decision from him and his cohorts.

  • RightThinkingOne

    Hopefully, under the Donald J. Trump administration, ALL federal funding will be cut from these “sanctuary cities.”

    • StoneyCurtisll

      I wouldn’t hold your breath…
      On second thought, go ahead and hold it till it happens.

      • RightThinkingOne

        Note the word: “Hopefully.”

        But it appears that you support sanctuary cities. If so, please iterate the reason.

        • whatthe46

          tRump settled his fraud case by admitting he committed fraud. tRump is going back to court regarding the rape charges of a 13 y/o child in Dec. there’s no hope for you that you support a child rapist, racist, fraud, sexual predator, etc., etc. so, why are you a racist by the way an why do you condone the rape of children? you’ve never answered that question.

          • RightThinkingOne

            Illogical response. It is about sanctuary cities.

            • whatthe46

              i can talk about whatever i want to talk about. like, tRump is a racist and so are you. like tRump is a child rapist and so are you. like tRump is an illiterate asshole and so are you. you don’t get to tell this beautiful brown woman what i can talk about or not. i get to tell you that you are an asshole and a racist and ignorant. prove me wrong!

            • bpollen

              Yeah, the South didn’t like “sanctuary states” either. Got in the way of treating people like property. Guess who won?

              • RightThinkingOne

                Unrelated.

                • bpollen

                  Pointless and incorrect response. But it WAS only one more word than I like to see you post.

        • whatthe46

          those people, are human beings. if you don’t give a damn about a human life, then leave my country.

          • RightThinkingOne

            So, it appears that you support going against the federal laws.

            • whatthe46

              taken in refugees, isn’t against FEDERAL LAW you jackass.

              • RightThinkingOne

                They are not complying with federal law by ignoring illegals.

                • whatthe46

                  STFU

      • William

        Installing your kids as part of the executive branch works so well huh?

        • whatthe46

          until someone takes ’em out.

      • RightThinkingOne

        Unrelated and illogical post by you.

        • whatthe46

          i’ve read your post and your history, i’ve seen comments by you that were supportive of the rape of children and the hatred of POC. you don’t get to tell me what i can or cannot post.

          • RightThinkingOne

            Illogical and highly emotional post by you yet again. That is the reason I rarely respond to your posts to me, of course.

            Bye.

            • whatthe46

              bye. good. you finally get it.

  • Böcker

    You can fix stupid and Abbott is stupid.
