Governor Vows No Funding For “Sanctuary” Campuses
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he will cut funding to public universities that become what he described as "sanctuary" campuses for immigrant students.
The Republican provided no other details.
Abbott tweeted the vow Thursday in response to a story about Texas State University students organizing a petition that urges school leaders to declare the campus a "sanctuary" amid concerns from immigrant students.
Some fear deportation under President-elect Donald Trump.
