Earlier this week, a Texas court passed a major ruling on the states’ sanctuary city policies.
President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have made it clear there is no tolerance for sanctuary cities in the United States.
But while some cities are still refusing to cooperate due to their social justice ideals, this Texas court just ensured it will not happen in their state.
Earlier this week, the federal appeals court judges passed a vote to crack down on immigration and sanctuary city policies.
The bill passed without a hitch—though a separate amendment which discusses punishment for these actions is still on hold.
BREAKNG: Texas Ban on Sanctuary City Policies upheld by Federal Court of Appeals. Allegations of discrimination were rejected. Law is in effect.

Breaking! The Sanctuary Cities Ban has been upheld by the 5th Circuit. It is lawful, constitutional, and protects the safety of law enforcement officers and all Texans.

The Daily Caller reported:
A three-judge panel in New Orleans’ 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Texas’ current immigration enforcement laws are constitutional. Senate Bill 4 enacted the law allowing local law enforcement officers to question the immigration status of people they detain or arrest, The Texas Tribune reported.
The only part of the bill that remains on hold is a provision punishing local government leaders and or elected officials who refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials, such as the mayor of Oakland, Calif., who tipped off residents of an immigration raid.
Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent out a tweet in support of the federal courts ruling, saying “Allegations of discrimination were rejected” and the “Law is in effect.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also took to Twitter to prove their actions were lawful and justified.
Sanctuary cities are centers of violence and chaos.
Illegal immigrants flee to these cities populated by American citizens and they feel they can get away with anything they wish because they are “protected.”
Immigration violence has risen exponentially, and will continue to rise so long as illegal aliens are allowed to take refuge in these so-called “angel cities.”
Do you believe more states need to crack down on their laws like Texas?
