Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez

While the Obama Administration continues in its attempt to disarm American Citizens, and allows criminal illegal aliens safe havens through sanctuary cities, Texas is once again at the forefront.

This time the governor of the Lone stare State is cracking down on cities that ignore immigration laws and attempt to offer sanctuary to illegal aliens.

In a letter to Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, Texas Gov. Greg Abbot made it clear Texas isn’t putting up with the  kind of “sanctuary city” nonsense other states have, when it comes to coddling illegal aliens.

The letter was sent after Valdez announced her intentions to make decisions on a case-by-case bases on whether to honor federal law that requires detaining illegal aliens, Abbott hit back hard – accusing the sheriff of endangering the very people she’s supposed to protect.

“Your decision to not fully honor U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) requests to detain criminal immigrants poses a serious danger to Texans,” he wrote. “These detainees provide ICE with the critical notice and time it needs to take incarcerated immigrants into federal custody.”

“Now more than ever,” Abbott concluded in his letter, “it is essential that state, federal, and local law enforcement work collaboratively to protect our fellow Texans and to ensure that our laws are upheld, not disregarded.”

What is apparent is that the average citizen is under siege from the political elite who through their policies have actually created “killing fields” dubbed “gun free zones”, and sanctuary cities that harbor and protect criminal aliens.
