Governor Abbott Statement On Court Ruling Temporarily Blocking Ban on Sanctuary Cities

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement after a San Antonio Judge placed an injunction on Senate Bill 4, which was set to take effect on September 1st:

 

“Today’s decision makes Texas’ communities less safe,” said Governor Abbott. “Because of this ruling, gang members and dangerous criminals, like those who have been released by the Travis County Sheriff, will be set free to prey upon our communities.

 

“U.S. Supreme Court precedent for laws similar to Texas’ law are firmly on our side. This decision will be appealed immediately and I am confident Texas’ law will be found constitutional and ultimately be upheld.”
