“The arrogance and incompetence of Sheriff Hernandez and the Travis County Sheriff’s office is simultaneously stunning and deeply troubling,” said Travis County GOP chairman Matt Mackowiak. “Mendoza-Caballero was free in our community for three weeks until ICE agents could locate him and courageously arrest him.

This policy will be illegal in Texas on September 1. How will she ensure this type of ‘clerical error’ does not happen again?”
