Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Steve Malzberg on the Steve Malzberg show that he's withholding millions of dollars to Travis County in Texas, which includes the state capital of Austin.  He's withholding funds from that county because they are a sanctuary city.  He refers to Travis County as a "blueberry in a sea of red soup."   He said that he and the Texas legislature are going to bring the hammer down on Travis County which has sanctuary city policies.  He stated they would be seeking greater penalties such as fines, potential jail time, or court action.  He said there could be a variety of penalties used for Travis County.  Click on the above link to read the full story.
