Commissioners Court Votes Against Texas Values

Dallas, TX – Chairman Phillip Huffines of the Dallas County Republican Party had this to say in response to the Dallas County Commissioners Court vote yesterday:

“I am disappointed in the liberal Dallas County Commissioners Court who placed their personal agenda ahead of Dallas County residents when they voted ‘yes’ on a resolution painting Dallas County as a sanctuary county. It is reckless to support open borders for illegal immigrants whilst ceasing Dallas County’s cooperation with I.C.E.,” said Chairman Phillip Huffines.

Yesterday, the Dallas County Commissioners Court voted to “end nonessential collaborations” with Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This could cause funding from both the state and federal level to cease.

Chairman Huffines On President Trump’s Immigration Hold

Chairman Phillip Huffines of the Dallas County Republican Party released the following statement regarding President Trump’s immigration hold:

“President Donald Trump is doing exactly what he promised; protecting our Country and its citizens and securing our border. The Obama Administration should have been protecting our country for the last eight years, but they failed. The liberal media and Democrats have chosen to, once again, misrepresent what the Executive Order seeks to accomplish. This is not a ban, it is a temporary delay. This delay gives the Federal Government time to effectively perform its job to vet individuals from countries that are a hotbed for terrorist activities,” said Chairman Phillip Huffines of the Dallas County Republican Party. “Only reporters and out of touch liberal Democrats are shocked that President Trump did something that he promised for the past two years. This outrage is senseless and due to a lack of information.”
