Texas Governor Greg Abbott will sign a law banning any cities in Texas from becoming sanctuaries for illegals.

UPI  reports  Governor Abbot tweeted this out:

In a later tweet, he said, “I deployed National Guard & added DPS Officers to the border & filed the suit that halted [Barack] Obama‘s illegal amnesty order. ”

Abbott is optimistic Trump’s election means Texas can decrease its border security campaign, which costs $800 million in the current two-year budget.

 “He is hopeful that President-elect Trump will implement a border security policy that eases the enormous financial burden Texas taxpayers have shouldered due to the current administration’s dereliction of duty,” Abbott spokesman Sam Taylor said in a statement last week. “The governor looks forward to working with the president elect to secure our southern border once and for all.”

Trump had pledged to withhold federal dollars from cities that give sanctuary to undocumented immigrants.After the election,

Democratic governors and mayors also pledged to continue sanctuary cities.

“For all those who are, after Tuesday’s election, very nervous, filled with anxiety as we’ve spoken to, you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are supported in Chicago,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
