Executed or killed, as in the most efficient Death Row in all of America. While "sent to Texas" often has a connotation implying brutal implementation by the authority figures who helm the 21st century American police state that has incarcerated or placed on probation an unprecedented 5% of its populace (more than any other human culture for as long as our species has existed), more mundane executions or simply the act of dispatching something can also be correctly identified by this phrase. Flies, for example, can also be "sent to Texas" by the end of a fly swatter, and refuse can be "sent to Texas" by being placed in the proper receptacle or incinerator.
