Chris Salcedo welcome Texas Governor Greg Abbott to "The Chris Salcedo Show" today. The Governor signed the so-called "sanctuary city ban" into law last Sunday allowing local law enforcement officers to detain persons found to be in the United States illegally for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Abbot minced no words, stating it is "gross negligence by public policy to release these people back out onto the streets." He believed people would be alive today if ICE detainers had been honored and does not want Texas citizens to be endangered.
The governor is also reaching out to pastors concerned about SB6, a Texas law meant to protect the safety of women and children in bathrooms that was approved by their senate on March. The bill requires persons to use the restroom that matches the gender on their birth certificate. Abbot said he advised the pastors "if you really want to have something pass, you need to make sure that you make contact with the members of the House," where it is being held up.
Texas also passed an Article V Convention of States Resolution, making it the 11th state needed out of 34 total to propose an amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The purpose is to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and set term limits for its officials and for Members of Congress. In honor of this, Governor Abbot tweeted last Thursday "BOOM."
