Texas Sheriff Betrays Trump

Houston Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has announced that he and his deputies will no longer attempt to identify immigration status of inmates or hold them for ICE’s deportation orders.

This action is in defiance of President Trump, whose administration struck a deal with Texas’ largest city to help promote Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operations. Gonzalez’s new action involves having deputies trained under ICE focus on different endeavors.

Gonzalez’s actions are also in stark contrast to his home state’s Republican governor, Gregg Abbott. A fierce Trump supporter, Abbott has been advocating crackdowns on local governments who refuse to enforce implemented immigration policies.

While many are pointing fingers, claiming the sheriff’s Democratic ideology is impeding his law enforcement capabilities, Gonzalez retorts to critics that his decision was voluntary and based on financial reasons and constraints.

  • Ron C

    Another Sheriff pisses all over his oath….!

    • blackhorse

      Upholds the law and lives up to his oath. Go get Trump to piss on you like he did to his prostitute’s in Russia.

      • disqus_htVNWSBEmM

        Did not happen! A total lie about Trump.

        • blackhorse

          And you have what proof to the contrary? “Oh, I did not do that”, so said the liar. So, what is your proof?

          • JBgege

            Where is your proof of Trump having anything to do with Russian prostitutes? Also, until immigration laws are changed, it is against the law to come into America without proper papers. So, anyone who is here without them is breaking the law & is a criminal. What don’t you understand about that? Just because obama had ICE ignore the law doesn’t mean it was legal. In fact, everyone who DOES NOT follow the current immigration laws are breaking the law! If we want to allow ANYONE to come into our country without proper ID & permission then we need to change the law to reflect that. I don’t know of many, if any, countries in the world who allow just anyone & everyone to enter their country without knowing who they are. Do you?

            Well you are the nuts for sale…

            Ohh, now there’s a real zinger, brainless boob!!!

          • blackhorse

            Read the Statue of Liberty tablets. When do you plan to tear them out of her arms.

          • Terry Butts

            Those tablets are NOT THE LAW in fact the statue of liberty was a GIFT FROM A FOREIGN NATION that island was the place IMMIGRATION officials used to process the LEGAL immigrants those tablets are about.

            Pointing to those tablets as PROOF people should be allowed in without verifying they do not intend HARM or TERRORIST ATTACKS against America fails miserably as it is not based on any IMMIGRATION LAW that has ever existed much less American laws.

          • noyb

            Well put.

          • Migaluce Ricciardi

            How many ILLEGALS are living at YOUR house? I know for a fact, living in an OUTLAW CITY, that they can get about 50 or 60 to an apartment, so how many are living with you? PHONY!!!

          • Screeminmeeme

            America has always had stringent immigration laws. Go read them. Ellis Island processed (and sometimes quarantined) LEGAL immigrants.

            The Statue of Liberty opened in 1886 and the plaque with the poem by Emma Lazarus’ was placed at its base 20 yrs later….in honor of Lazarus.

            The only Statue of Liberty inscription can be found on the tablet in her left hand, which says JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776), the day the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence.

            Like most leftists you conflate ILLEGAL immigration with LEGAL and it’s a deliberate action to cloud the issue while pushing to allow open borders and amnesty.

            NO PEOPLE OF ANY NATION have the ‘RIGHT’ to come to America, but WE have the obligation to ENFORCE the laws which were passed to PROTECT American citizens from job-stealing, disease-carrying, welfare-seeking people who parasitize our system, some of whom also go on to commit heinous crimes.

            It’s understandable why people would seek the opportunity for a better life that America has to offer, but they must obey our laws and do it LEGALLY.

            No borders…..no laws…..no sovereignty > chaos and anarchy.

          • gdfairy

            In this country people are INNOCENT UNTIL proven guilty! And since it is impossible to prove a negative, it is on those who believe he did such things to prove it. Putin says it didn’t happen, BUT of course IF it did happen “our (meaning Russian prostitutes) are the best in the world”! Quite frankly I believe Putin is FAR more honest than OUR (meaning US )media!

          • blackhorse

            Well of course you do, it is quite apparent. You believe foreign nationals than the US media. You call yourself American but do everything to destroy America. Bannon. Is leading this “Bad media” because once you think the media is bad, you now will not think for yourself but have the government telling you what to believe. Having meaningful discussions is really quite pointless since you will not be doing any critical thinking. So go to your media source, Breitbart and Infowars outlets, and think “everyone” not in your image should be deported or shamed.

          • Charlie

            blackhorse – that story about the Russian prostitutes has already been debunked by the FBI, the NSA, and the CIA. Even the media admit that they heard the story but have no proof. It was just that the story fit their agenda. Grow up!

          • Migaluce Ricciardi

            Ok, I was trying my darndest to stay out of this, but you blackarse are the perfect example of what’s wrong with this nation. You’ll swallow whatever these phonies in the MSM feed you. Why don’t you grow a brain and look into things for yourself instead of devouring all of the trash that these NITWITS are putting out there as real news. Do everyone a favor, pull your bottom lip up over your head and swallow, it seems you have no problems swallowing the garbage the MSM is feeding you!

          • Hey dip shit what is your “proof” that he did?

          • blackhorse

            Intelligence (something you most likely do not believe). It is blackmail material. if you did it, would you admit it? I would think not.

          • Migaluce Ricciardi

            Intelligence something you most likely don’t believe!? What kind of a statement is that!? Oh wait, I know, it’s one made by someone who retains none!

          • Robin Shafer

            Something tells me you are a lawbreaker yourself. God knows. You will pay. Even if you are not caught in this lifetime.

Sorry to burst your bubble, well then again (not knowing you, but something is telling me this), you bubble is will do just fine. Since you do not know me, like your judgement, your intuition is failing.

          • Migaluce Ricciardi

            This guy’s a foreigner, probably an ILLEGAL. And a NITWIT!!!

          • blackhorse

            You guys really are not the brightest bulbs in the pack… I will let you alone now, it has been fun.

        • Infantboy

          Anybody helping to not enforce these Federal laws and protect illegals over regular US citizens should be put in prison for life. Don’t you fools know that these illegal thiefs murderers and drug pushers are taking your jobs,stealing your pensions and destroying our way of life and maybe destroying our country. The fags and hyocrats and liers who are being paid to protest against us and against God will be destroyed enentually. Why do you ediots not love this country. Has the devil gained that much control of your pathetic minds that you can’t see the harm being done to this great country. Trump is trying to save us the demos are trying to make us a communist country. Remember this is nothin free. No free education,no free healthcare and no free living on the Doe like so many illegals are doing right now. A demand from other countrys that hold our debt in hack can call our debt and collapase our country. Is this what you ediots want. I hope you all will rot in Hell.

      • Ron C

        Are you one of those genuine useful idiot’s….??? I thinks so.

        • blackhorse

          Nope. You will need to look in a mirror to see one of those.

      • Terry Butts

        I suggest you read the IMMIGRATION LAW Trump did not make the law he is simply trying to get LAW OFFICERS to obey their oath and ENFORCE THE LAW.

        Many of the INMATES turned lose in the past because of this RACIST BELIEF that it is somehow UNFAIR or violates a nonexistent right they have to enter this nation have gone on to MURDER PEOPLE.

        Those victims would still be alive today if the LAW OFFICIALS had followed IMMIGRATION LAW instead of looking the other way in support of VIOLATING IMMIGRATION LAWS that have been on the books for DECADES.

        If we get to PICK AND CHOOSE which laws to obey based on PERSONAL OPINION about them then all laws would be void as there is not one single law that a CRIMINAL SOMEWHERE feels is unjust because it prevents them from LEGALLY doing what they want to do without fear of punishment and they can use the same ARGUMENT used in support of violating the immigration law (despite being false in most cases) that it is the ONLY LAW THEY BROKE so the violation should be ignored.

        • blackhorse

          Your opinion, but if the law is written such that “all” immigrants sho be deported, the why do we not hear about deporting Saudies, Germans, Italians, etc.? When this type of law targets a specific population, the law is wrong. Federal Judges thought so. There was vetting before Trump and deporting before Trump. This is where the argument starts. So, keep your opinion, because that is how I a treating it.

          • Terry Butts

            It does not say ALL IMMIGRANTS it says the ones that CAME IN ILLEGALLY .

            This law does not target a SPECIFIC population it does not mater what race, religion, gender, or political affiliation a person is if they cross the border without going through the LEGAL PROCESS outlined in FEDERAL LAW for LAWFUL entry into this nation then they are in violation and ARE DEPORTED.

            The fact the MEDIA ONLY REPORTS WHEN IT IS MEXICANS being arrested for violating does not mean they are the only ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS being processed.

            Why not read the law yourself instead of relying on lies and propaganda.

            “Federal Judges thought so. There was vetting before Trump and deporting before Trump. This is where the argument starts. So, keep your opinion, because that is how I a treating it.”

            False federal judges did not rule on the IMMIGRATION LAW they ruled on an executive order they obviously did not read.

            HANDING OUT WAIVERS TO BYPASS vetting is not vetting.

            Not that his EO has anything at all to do with this story as the STORY is about IMMIGRATION LAW and its ENFORCEMENT being ignored by a sheriff.

            Here is the EO there is NO MENTION OF SEVEN COUNTRIES or ONE SPECIFIC RACE or RELIGION it simply ENDED the waiver without cause proccess and reinstated the individual vetting of each refugee.

            And here is the ACTUAL LAW that has been on the book for DECADES it is not MY OPINION it is fact.

            https://www.uscis.gov/laws/immigration-and-nationality-act

          • blackhorse

            OK, then give me this. If an Iranian or yemenese goes to Saudi Arabia to get citizenship, then cones to the US, they would not be stopped but still have terrorist intentions, would not be stopped. They would not be on the banned list. So how would you handle this scenario?

          • Terry Butts

            What BANNED list? Did you even read the INA.

            It does not matter what nation someone wants to enter from they still have to go through the EXACT SAME INTERVIEW required by immigration law THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN is not what determines if they are a terrorist or not.
            Here is a more direct link to the actual legal code

          • Charlie

            blackhorse- No one said that any immigrants would be deported. Illegal aliens will be deported according to our laws. They are not immigrants. Bu legal definition they are illegal aliens. It is in the law, which defines immigrants as people who come here lawfully in order to reside permanently. If they do not come here lawfully, they are illegal aliens and criminals. Do some research before yoy make an even bigger fool of yourself. Your feelings are not law. The enacted and written statutes in the law books are the law.

      • Charlie

        No, he is in violation of his oath to uphold the law. Illegal aliens are criminals and he is aiding and abetting their criminal acts. Read the U.S. Code and then open your mouth when you know what you are talking about.

  • texas1

    Getting President mad is the least of his worries. TX Gov. Gregg Abbott is cutting off money to all these pro-illegal alien cities and counties and the TX Leg is working on a bill to criminalize these sheriffs and local officials who support it. Abbott has already stated that some of these people will end up on the other side of prison bars.

    • Terry Butts

      Add in the cost when victims of these inmates after their release sue because they were not supposed to be released upon the public able to make them victims when FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAW states they were to be turned over to immigration not released.

      Sherrif is a US citizen you dolt. He upholds the law and he is far better than a dozen of your corrupt Sherrifs. If we could ship out stupid, you would be the first to go.

      • farmboy1993

        You dumbass! If he upheld the law, he would deport ALL illegals, like they should be! Federal law, is the law of the land! Buying votes by allowing illegals to stay is also illegal! The sheriff needs to be in jail, and you sent back to Mexico where you belong!

        • blackhorse

          Such a blind follower. If sweeping military style of action were to occur, your next full-time job will be picking crops. Sheriff Gonzalez has his reasons and since you have never held public office, you have no basis for interpreting his actions. By the way Bacon Bit, I cannot be deported. Again it is this US Citizen thing you keep forgetting.

          • justanagent

            As a veteran law enforcement officer who has spent some time living and working on our southern border I understand that border security is a much more complex issue than the vast majority of our citizens realize. You have to spend some time close to the issue to really understand it. Since we share long borders with both Canada and Mexico, I believe we should streamline the process and make it so easy for citizens of both countries to legally immigrate to the U.S that there would be absolutely no excuse for breaching our borders and sneaking into the country illegally. As far as I know there are no plans to conduct door roundups of those currently residing here illegally regardless of their nationalities. That said, I think there is a general agreement that we must get control of our borders. That is a national security issue that we can no longer afford to ignore. I believe we should make it a CRIMINAL offense to knowingly employ anyone not authorized to legally work in the U.S.. Enforce the law by conducting undercover investigations targeting the “underground employers” who are engaging in illegal and usually abusive employment practices. Prosecute them and put them in jail. Drying up the illegal underground job market would go a long way toward solving the problem. We could then move on to granting visas to foreign nationals who wish to work here. They could then be brought into the system LEGALLY, paid a fair wage, pay into social security, join a labor union IF THEY SO DESIRE and pay taxes like the rest of us. Any final conviction for a serious criminal offense would be grounds for deportation. No one should be allowed to permanently immigrate with no intention to ever assimilate and immigration should equal assimilation. As for border security; real border security will require a combination of physical barriers, airborne and electronic surveillance in conjunction with an adequate number of boots on the ground. That could be done by hiring more border agents and augmenting them with military personnel. These are my proposals. If you believe that we should control our borders and properly vet those we allow into our country, what do you suggest?

          • Terry Butts

            Much of what you have stated is already in US law it is just not being enforced because it is not PC or it PROFITS some politician in some way to ignore the law.

            The sheriff in question is talking about people arrested for other crimes when he states he will not VERIFY if they are here illegally or HOLD THEM if ICE already sent them a detention order to hold them if caught.

            This is a link to the INA the US LAW that this sheriff states he would ignore and not even detain already identified illegals for deportation under if they are JAILED for other reasons.

            https://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/SLB/HTML/SLB/act.html

            It is simple for anyone who is not a criminal to immigrate to the US under that law just not at the rate of 50000 a year as that many can not be verified to not be a criminal or terrorist in that short of time with the current staff tasked with protecting this nation against those whose only purpose for entry is to harm this nation.

        • Charlie

          There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant. The proper terminology is illegal alien. That is the proper legal terminology according to the U.S. Code. Alien – any person not a citizen or national… Citizen – a person who is born or naturalized in a country and subject to the jurisdiction thereof..

          • Knowledge Transfer

          Not really, but Trump is the Billionaire, so he must be pretty darn stupid… It is amazing how riled up you Republicans can get… Conservative Alert, Patriot News, and such you are all the same. Complain about MSM being fake and the stuff (most of!) you put out is far from the truth. I can understand why this country is divided and will be for some time. Something as simple as “Trump lost the popular vote” to there were 3-5 million illegal aliens voting. Really??? Talking about how “Yuge” is inauguration was. And trying to explain it away. Come on, you are in the White House and you have other important matter to contend with. You should stick you head up once in a while and look at the corruption. He is profiting on the Presidency, costing the tax payers 11 million a month for his travel to go to the “Southern White House”. Obama, spent this in 1 year. So, who is paying for that? You and me! Add it up over 1 term, it could be 450 million. What do you think could be done with this money to benefit the US Citizens? Just a thought…

    • Philip fabiano

      Is this story really reliable? You should also look at the facts and you will not get them Conservative Alert. Ed Gonzalez has ended a controversial partnership with federal immigration authorities that trained a team of county deputies to determine the immigration status of jailed suspects and hold those selected for deportation.

      Gonzalez, merely said he will reassign 10 deputies trained under a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement program known as 287(g) that cost at least $675,000 in salaries and deploy them to other law enforcement duties.

      The withdrawal of sheriff’s deputies still will allow ICE officials to come to the jail and screen jail inmates to determine their immigration status, and the county will hold them for deportation if requested.

      The sheriff said overcrowding in the county jail complex, where staff shortages have hiked overtime costs to $1 million every two weeks, has forced him to deploy his ICE-trained deputies elsewhere. He said his decision was not political “but an issue of resources,” explaining the deputies may be assigned to help improve clearance rates of major crimes or bolster the patrol division.

      In addition to the annual cost-savings, he said, “We’ll be able to release that personnel to offset some of our overtime costs inside the jail and local public safety priorities we have.”

      Gonzalez, said Harris County will hold anyone at ICE’s request no matter what criminal charge the inmate may be facing. The jail will hold the inmate until ICE agents can take custody and move them to a federal detention facility, which Gonzalez said in the past has been done quickly.

      “It’s my understanding that I need to comply with the law,” Gonzalez said. “If ICE makes a determination there is someone they have identified and they make a request (for detention), then I plan to honor that request.”

      I am sure you prefer your uniformed position better, right??

      How do you deport someone who is an American citizen. Only a bigot looks at a last name and figures he must be an illegal alien. If his last name was Smith would your first reaction be can we deport him?? You should also look at the facts and you will not get them Conservative Alert.

      Once again TRUMP DID NOT MAKE THE IMMIGRATION LAW CONGRESS DID.

      It has been on the books for years (before Trump was even born) the fact he EXPECTS LAW OFFICERS to ENFORCE THE LAW is not idioticy whatever that is nor is it idiotic what is idiotic is people who continue to expect the LAWS OF THIS NATION to be ignored because it is not POLITICALLY CORRECT to the GLOBALISTS for a nation to control the entry of people LIKE EVERY OTHER NATION DOES.

      Any American caught in CANADA, MEXICO, ENGLAND, etc. without the proper paperwork is JAILED at best charged with spying or other crimes at worst they are not GIVEN MONEY, A HOUSE, A FAKE ID, or a job while the LAW looks the other way because some HIGHER UP feels the law should not say what it actually does say.

      His goal is to ensure we do not end up like the other nations who decided to ignore their own immigration laws when it came to “REFUGEES” like the ones that have had France in a state of emergency for MONTHS because of the violence they started once they had sufficient numbers and ILLEGAL SMUGGLED WEAPONS inside the country.

      If you do not like the law TALK TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN ABOUT GETTING IT CHANGED you do not just IGNORE THE LAW and then throw a fit when someone ENFORCES IT simply because those in the past AGREED WITH YOU and ignored that law.

    OK THEN…He has gone against his oath of office, BROKEN FEDERAL LAW, and needs to be FIRED, arrested and JAILED for trying to be “above” the Law of the land for “political ideological purposes”. There must be SOMEONE out there to replace this person that is unwilling to take their job and the security of our Country seriously.

    If this man is NOT willing to abide by the laws set forth and is encouraging other fellow workers to do the same….he and his followers need to seriously get out and find another line of work. OR face the consequences of their actions. Jail and fines appropriate!

  • LEVI506

    Guess he needs his 15 minutes in the sun? Wonder if he EVER reported illegals? Bet NOT!

  • nocroman

    What the sheriff said in his own words is enough to arrest, and convict him for treason. The sentence for treason is death. I expect to see his name in the obituaries sometime next week with cause of death listed as executed for treason.

  • Walter Bazner

    If he breaks the law he can go straight to jail himself.Sheriff is not immune to prosecution

      You are misinformed. How do you deport someone who is an American citizen. Only a bigot looks at a last name and figures he must be an illegal alien. If his last name was Smith would your first reaction be can we deport him?? You should also look at the facts and you will not get them Conservative Alert. Ed Gonzalez has ended a controversial partnership with federal immigration authorities that trained a team of county deputies to determine the immigration status of jailed suspects and hold those selected for deportation.

      Gonzalez, merely said he will reassign 10 deputies trained under a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement program known as 287(g) that cost at least $675,000 in salaries and deploy them to other law enforcement duties.

      The withdrawal of sheriff’s deputies still will allow ICE officials to come to the jail and screen jail inmates to determine their immigration status, and the county will hold them for deportation if requested.

      The sheriff said overcrowding in the county jail complex, where staff shortages have hiked overtime costs to $1 million every two weeks, has forced him to deploy his ICE-trained deputies elsewhere. He said his decision was not political “but an issue of resources,” explaining the deputies may be assigned to help improve clearance rates of major crimes or bolster the patrol division.

      In addition to the annual cost-savings, he said, “We’ll be able to release that personnel to offset some of our overtime costs inside the jail and local public safety priorities we have.”

      Gonzalez, said Harris County will hold anyone at ICE’s request no matter what criminal charge the inmate may be facing. The jail will hold the inmate until ICE agents can take custody and move them to a federal detention facility, which Gonzalez said in the past has been done quickly.

      “It’s my understanding that I need to comply with the law,” Gonzalez said. “If ICE makes a determination there is someone they have identified and they make a request (for detention), then I plan to honor that request.”

      I am sure you prefer your uniformed position better, right??

  • disqus_htVNWSBEmM

    He needs to turn in his badge if he won’t do what he took an oath to do. I guess “enforce and uphold the law” means something different to him.

    arrest all the sheriffs and govt officers who dont adhere to trumps demands to curtail sanctuary city policies and put them in prison for at least ten years of more

  • Larry Brule

    ARREST THE DAMN SHERIFF FOR NOT ENFORCING THE LAW.

  • b j

    This “sheriff” says his decision is based on financial reasons so I give him a thumbs up for that. BUT our law in these United States says it is illegal to be here so he must uphold our law or be charged with a felony. I don’t care if he is a brown man, a black man , a yellow man or God forbid, a white man who is wrong before he begins. If funds are low then he needs to inform others because it is not his job to allocate/provide money just enforce the law. I hope his ten minutes of fame is worth serious jail time.

  • Philip fabiano

    You think maybe you should look deeper at the facts? For instance President Obama among Latinos was known as the Deporter in Chief. He never granted amnesty to anyone. He made the decision to allocate resources to immigrants who committed crimes and place children and those who are contributing to American society lower on the enforcement list. Same here. How do you deport someone who is an American citizen. Only a bigot looks at a last name and figures he must be an illegal alien. If his last name was Smith would your first reaction be can we deport him?? You should also look at the facts and you will not get them Conservative Alert.

  • Howleyesque

    MR Gonzalez needs to face a RECALL election and be held accountable for his REFUSAL to assist in the protection of the citizenry who mistakenly elected him! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1fc862d8cae92fe961aabbe809c3344166aa0dd0d5969797e667a2ace8205c34.png

  • Fortuneless

    That’s what Houston gets for having a Meskin Sheriff. Time to go to jail Puto.

  • CyclingFoodmanPA

    Simple, citizens do NOT elect this unlawful Sheriff. Sheriff’s are duly elected by the people and hopefully he sealed his own fate by what he did. Unless the majority of voters are illegal aliens (then how should they be able to vote?) the true citizens should make him unemployed when he runs for re-election.

  • Just another asshol;e who thinks he doesn’t has to follow the constitution or his oath of office.

  • Eli Charlie Noseworthy

    BLACK “HORSE” OMG, what a LEFTIST MORON, with all the crap your spewing from your mouth you indeed do not know the difference between your mouth and your ass, want you to know your father jerked off in a flower pot and got a BLOOMING IDIOT FOR A SON !!!!! Now go back to your pig pen!!

  • Terry Butts

    This puts him in violation of the ALREADY EXISTING immigration laws Trump is not the one that made the law he simple declared that LAW ENFORCEMENT is required to once again follow the law obama and other previous presidents allowed them to ignore.

    This also makes him DIRECTLY LIABLE for any crimes these inmates commit upon being released since BY LAW they were supposed to be processed under the immigration law they violated not running around free to commit other crimes.

    Just like that city in california where they RELEASED one despite a LAWFUL DETENTION ORDER from immigration he went out and MURDERED an innocent woman when BY LAW he was supposed to have been turned over to Immigration for deportation.

  • Normando782

    I doubt the reason he gives is truthful. Let him provide proof if he thinks he is correct.

  • BobM001

    This “pendejo puto policia” better get his priorities in line. He might just find himself getting “escorted” by the Texas Rangers to a courtroom in HANDCUFFS. Greg Abbott IS NOT messing around. If you SWORE AN OATH you better abide by it or FIND ANOTHER PROFESSION.

  • Gloria Ross

    Texas seems to have nothing but “HISPANIC” sheriffs in every one of their counties and each and everyone of them has been doing exactly what this one is doing. They need to be FIRED and watch then scream RACISM.

  • Jack Farquhar

    When does this POS next face the voters? He has obviously lost his mind.

  • ReaperHD

    This Houston Sheriff needs to be locked up for STEALING TAX PAYER MONEY if he isn’t going to do what he is being paid for and the DEPUTIES also who are not doing their jobs. This is from a TEXAN who just read that the Governor is signing a BILL to do just that to officials who promote sanctuary cities, the quicker they are put in jail then the less money they will be stealing from the TAX PAYERS.

  • Anne M Waring

    This sheriff is an idiot! So not only are illegals breaking the law so is the sheriff! I am not against illegals BUT come in legally! Why can’t you obey the law sheriff? What is up with you?

  • Rickey Cook

    THIS SO CALLED SHERIFF CAN BE REPLACED WITH OUT ELECTIONS BY FEDERAL MARSHALS OR BY THE GOVERNOR . IF THEY ARE SMART HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH HINDERING PROSECUTION

  • Charlie

    He is also in defiance of the Texas Governor and Texas ststutes. He is also a liar because he took an oath to uphold the law and now breaks that oath to commit criminal acts. Remove that lying a–hole from office.

    What did you expect coming from a Mexican? They back up their own and the hell with the rest of us. We should get him out of office but I guess they have a lot of Mexicans in their city,

    It would appear that he won’t be Sheriff for too long!

    If you can’t honor your oath to uphold the laws of our country, you are not fit for this position. Resign!

  • SAMUEL OLAGUE

    THEY SHOULD JUST RESIGN AND GET OTHERS JOBS..

  • Original Anna

    Well, how did this guy get in office, did he tell everybody what he believed before getting in office or just keep his mouth shut or did he just lie like a typical democrat progressive. Where are these cheap trick people who are supposed to protect their citizens and do not coming from. Why do they think their responsibility is to foreigners and not citizens here. Illegals are the responsibility of the country they come from not the one they break into illegally and cause all kinds of crime and forcing us taxpayers to pay for their free education and stuff that is meant for taxpayers and our citizens not for foreigners who are illegals. We taxpayers are not supposed to be paying for these illegals, why does this sheriff think we are responsible for illegals. He needs to get his loyalties straight or get out of office and go help his illegals in the countries the illegals are from since that is his first loyalty.

  • Lisa Millar

    What can you expect from a mexican sheriff. If you think it is bad now wait until more of the mexicans get into office, city counsel and government. They will do what is best for their people and the hell with the rest of us. Ask an American Indian about immigration.
    The men who fought at the Alamo are probably turning over in their grave and thinking they fought and died for nothing. The mexicans are taking over without a fight; thanks to many of our stupid and ignorant politicians and officials who have no commonsense.

  • Mark Tercsak

    As Ron C has stated mr. Gonzalez is not betraying President Trump.
    Mr. Gonzalez has betrayed the very Oath of office he took.
    He has betrayed the citizens of the United States Of America and the Constitution of the United States.
    Thus he is no Sheriff, remove his ass and deport him to…….
