The sanctuary cities 'safety' measure Texas cops don't want
By Raul A. Reyes

True, it is important that local police cooperate with federal authorities in combating crime. However, Texas police and sheriffs already do so; among other things, they work with the feds to fight gangs and cartels. If immigration agents obtain a judicial warrant or file criminal charges against a suspected undocumented immigrant, Texas police will arrest them. In fact, between 2014 and 2016, Texas fulfilled 35,632 of the 58,452 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer requests it received -- more than any other state, according to statistics compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
