Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Escalates Standoff Over Sheriff's 'Sanctuary Cities' Policy


Abbott doesn't have the power to remove local officials. But Texas Republicans have filed multiple bills that would punish local governments for not arresting or detaining immigrants living in the country illegally.
What they are really upset about is the failure to turn over people who have been arrested for other crimes to ICE for deportation.  The legislature may also make it possible to remove officials who failed to cooperate with immigration officials.
