Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, Texas District 7 Senator Paul Bettencourt took a shot at Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez over her stance on sanctuary cities.

"The simple fact is, we've got a problem, we have to do something about it," said Sen. Bettencourt, praising fellow senator Charles Perry's work on a sanctuary city legislation. "We can't have state and elected officials in the state like Sanctuary Sally [Hernandez] down here in Travis County turn a blind eye to releasing illegals that have felony convictions and then wonder what's going to happen when they get back into general population."

Sen. Bettencourt said he was confident that Perry's version of the Sanctuary City bill will stand.

"That's the one that people want, Chad," he said. "That's what we're doing this for, because the people have had enough of this problem and they want it fixed."
