Im calling on you Sheriff to rescind your (Sanctuary City) policy.
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN Texas
In less than 48 hours Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez my sheriff will implement a new policy that I believe endangers my safety and that of my family friends Senate District 24 constituents and all Texans said Texas Senator Dawn Buckingham via a Facebook post Monday afternoon calling on Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez
(right) to rescind her previously announced Sanctuary City Policy
This is why I issued the following public appeal
for Sheriff Hernandez to rescind her policy before it goes into effect on February 1.
Today I have a message for my (Travis County) Sheriff Sally Hernandez. Its not a political message but a message of public safety.
You cant just pick and choose which laws you want to obey. What if citizens applied the same thing to every law in our state? You need to be held to a higher standard Buckingham said.
Its my belief that your (Sanctuary Cities) policies
will endanger not only the constituents of this state but you are endangering my children. So I ask you again to not institute the policies and I can tell you that Im taking my own steps to insure the safety of our community said Buckingham.
Today I also filed Senate Concurrent Resolution 13
calling on Sheriffs Offices in all 254 Texas Counties to comply with honor and fulfill requests included in an immigration detainer issued by United States Immigration & Customs Enforcement
On behalf of everyone who wants a safe Travis County Im calling on you Sheriff to rescind your policy said Buckingham.
