Austin May Become The First Official Sanctuary City In Texas [VIDEO]
Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, Hasty talked about an article from Texas Tribune that explains how Travis County Sheriff candidate Sally Hernandez promises if she's elected she'll end cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Travis County would become the first official "sanctuary city" in Texas, and would no longer hold inmates when the federal agency seeks to remove them from the country.
Hernandez says that her reforms will make the county safer by encouraging more immigrants to cooperate in solving crimes, rather than remaining afraid of being deported.
"Uh-huh, I'm sure that'll work," says Hasty.
Listen to the segment from the show in the video above.
