The U.S. Lab for Bad Policy continues to excel in bad policy:
(CNN)Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday signed a bill that would ban sanctuary cities in his state.
The bill, which Abbott could be seen signing on Facebook Live Sunday evening, establishes criminal and civil penalties for local government entities and law enforcement that don’t comply with immigration laws and detention requests, the governor’s office said.
The new measure would fine government entities up to $25,500 for each day the law is violated.
It would also result in a misdemeanor charge for sheriffs, police chiefs and constables who fail to comply with detention requests and in removal from office for elected and appointed officials, Abbott’s office said.
So Texas small gubmint conservatives are not inflexible, it seems. Now, when Texas’ Lege find a dusky person not being persecuted by the locals, they are able to bring down the hammer. That is the Triple Salchow of Doublespeak right there.
