Governor: 'Sanctuary' jail will cost sheriff job
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is escalating a standoff with Austin's sheriff over so-called "sanctuary cities" policies and now says he will seek new laws to remove her from office. Abbott said Wednesday on "Fox and Friends" that Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez will lose her job unless she reverses plans to stop honoring all federal immigration detainers in her jail starting in February. The governor has already said he will immediately withhold state grant dollars.
