AUSTIN – State Senator Donna Campbell attended a press conference this morning with members of the Senate Republican Caucus to show her full support for Senate Bill 4. Senator Campbell is a co-author of the bill and released the following statement:

“A state cannot effectively govern itself without governing its borders and enforcing the rule of law. When we allow the rule of law to be ignored, we are allowing the will of the people to be ignored. When a sheriff imposes policies that violate state and federal law, they violate their duty as a chief law enforcement officer, as well as the trust, safety, and security of the citizens of Texas. This must stop – and I commend Governor Abbott for making this an emergency item and Senator Perry for introducing crucial legislation to abolish sanctuary cities.”
