In 2017, the Texas legislature passed and Governor Greg Abbott signed legislation banning so-called sanctuary cities. The new law threatens sheriffs, police chiefs and other officials with jail time and removal from office if they do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

If you were a member of the legislature, would you have voted for the sanctuary cities measure? Why or why not?
