Trump sanctuary cities

For years, Democrats have brashly ignored federal immigration laws in city after city. More than 300 sanctuary cities now defy the law, and for seven years President Obama encouraged this -- even battling Arizona's attempt to enforce federal immigration laws.

That changed on Thursday. Fearing illegal immigration will win the presidency for Donald Trump, Obama threw sanctuary cities under the bus.

From the Washington Examiner:
Finally acting on a promise made to House leaders, the Justice Department on Thursday shut off funding to so-called "sanctuary cities" that ignore federal laws and protect illegal immigrants wanted for crimes.
"Today, the DOJ notified local and state law enforcement agencies across America that they will no longer be eligible for federal law enforcement grants unless they certify under oath that their local or state laws do not interfere 'in any way' with requests for immigration information from federal authorities," according to Texas Rep. John Culberson who demanded action earlier this year.
Justice sent Culberson a letter detailing the new rules that cut off several Justice grants, many to law enforcement, if cities like San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and over 300 others block access to criminal illegals sought by federal authorities.
It is a huge victory for Culberson, chairman of the Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee on Appropriations, and others who sought to shut down the once secret system in cities. The practice of taking federal money then refusing to give up criminal illegals became public after the 2015 San Francisco killing of Kate Steinle allegedly by an illegal immigrant who had been deported for crimes several times.
It's a temporary ban that ends on Election Day, no matter who is elected president.

But it shows they are worried.

Imagine what happens when Trump is elected.

  1. About time, but all funds need to be cut. These 300 cities have tried to succeed from federal laws under the Constitution's rule of laws as did the southern states in 1860-1861. If you are willing to defy the federal government, you should be willing to accept the consequences.

  2. In light of the events in Dallas how will the Administratio justify withholding funds from police agencies in "sanctuary cities". The LibDems will demagogue this and they will carry the day, probably with help from the Roll-Over Congress.

  3. Do you really expect the administration to enforce this? It is a dead letter. A sop to the opposition. Meaningless.

    1. No, the cops are racist. They'll want to ban guns.

    2. Since the Obama administration will just turn around and release them, I agree. This is nothing but smoke and mirrors.

  4. Damage control - but the damage is already done. And notice it is only for "criminal" illegal aliens. Your average illegal alien is still okay. The thing is, if they are here illegally, by definition they are criminals. Typical Democratic doublespeak. - Elric

  5. A diehard NeverTrumper on another blog refuses to buy it, but you're right.

    The Demos are scared to death of Trump and, after Dallas, they have every right to be.

    This and Hillary could well hand him the election.

  6. Long overdue, but Congress must hold the Dems' feet to the fire.

  7. Do you recognize "the fundamental transformation of America" as promised by the president?
