Trump To Withhold Federal Funds From Sanctuary Cities


 

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York ruled that it is legal to withhold federal funds from self-described ‘Sanctuary Cities’. The ruling overturned a lower court decision that stopped President Trump from withholding federal funds from a grant program that would redistribute that money to criminal justice departments that protect illegals.

President Trump weighed in on Twitter:

“As per recent Federal Court ruling, the Federal Government will be withholding funds from Sanctuary Cities. They should change their status and go non-Sanctuary,” he said. “Do not protect criminals!”

This decision is not likely the final say, though. It conflicts with other court decisions across the country so, at some point, we should expect a Supreme Court review.

President Trump says the move is to help keep Americans safe but opponents say it does the opposite. Liberal meccas like New York, Massachusetts, Washington, and California will be putting up a fight. They say that by enforcing the law it somehow makes communities less safe.

Go figure.

Sanctuary cities put a roadblock between local law enforcement and immigration authority. They keep illegal immigrants, who are already being held for a crime, out of jail and back on the streets before ICE can get to them.

Democrats, including just recently Joe Biden, have been vociferous on the issue claiming that these are just good people ICE is after and they don't deserve to be arrested or deported. However, ICE has a very different take on it and it's backed up with facts.

In a letter to de Blasio last month, ICE Acting Director Matt Albence noted that ICE’s New York City Enforcement and Removals Office issued detainers on 7,526 subjects who had criminal histories, including 3,500 assaults, 1,500 DUIs, 1,000 sex crimes, 1,000 weapons offenses, 500 robberies and 200 homicides.

That doesn't sound like innocent victims being targeted. Those are people that we'd want off the street whether they were citizens or not. It's time to stop protecting criminals. Luckily, for US citizens, we have a President who puts Americans first and enforces our laws.

      “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

  1. BEST MOVE YET…. THE LEADER’S OF THESE CITIES HAVE GOTTEN TO BIG FOR THEIR BRITCH’S….
    CROW TIME…

  2. The democrats need to be stopped , they are indeed making us unsafe and destroying the states

  3. We need stiffer border control to keep the S.O.Bs out in the first place. Those that are successful in sneaking in should be shot when captured.

  4. We should be first and foremost. Take care of our veterans instead of illegals. Illegals are wanting us to take care of them. They use the system in any way they can.

  5. Announcing that the money will go towards more ICE agents would be a nice slap in their faces.

  6. When an illegal alien from a sanctuary city commits a crime, the officials of that city who declared the criminals are protected, should be charged as an accessory for blocking ice and the victims should be able to sue that sanctuary city for damages

  7. the word illegal has a direct meaning that should be enforced in any situation. If Americans break our laws we are punished. Why would you feed, house, give illegals money, all kinds of benefits and protect them? do you think if Americans invaded a country we would be treated the same? bottom line ILLEGAL means ILLEGAL. a nation has to protect itself against being overrun period. we cannot take care of our own much less invaders from all nations and places. obama wanted to destroy America before he made himself rich,which he did off the backs of Americans, now he don’t need us so now he is ready to destroy America. you people that think obama was a great leader were used only as puppets by the democrats, wake up and see what you have let happen during obamas presidency. President Trump has and is working FREE to make America free and safe and all Americans properous

    1. One thing Obama can NOT do is take his riches w/him when he meets his MAKER, you KNOW, the one he denies, Jesus Christ! As a Muslim and in the Koran in Sura 23:91 it says Allah begat not a son. You can bet on that, and that is why Allah is NOT God! See 2 Cor 4:4/Ephesians 2:2 KJV to SEE who Allah really is. Allah means “the god” (see the 1st verse) SEE Islam is a created religion created from hundreds of Gods in Arabia by Mohammed and he made himself Allahs prophet (even if he has NEVER made any prophecies..BET on that) just top get people to follow him! They did and they still do…right to HELL! It is nothing more then the BLIND leading the BLIND! Obama was a foreigner from Kenya and grew up in Indonesia (100% Muslim) and he was Inserted as Pres. and could not do what he wanted to do and was installed to do. (It was NOT in GOD’s timing) The Lord Jesus is aware and perfectly knowledable about what is and what is not going on, and HE alone is fully in control! DON’t people worry about what will happen, “IT IS WRITTEN!” SEE The King James Bible! That is where it is written…Thus saith the LORD!”

  8. Take a lesson from Israel…Israel has a Border wall around Jerusalem and has had for centuries! The is a Border wall in China called the Great wall of China, and its a wonder of the world (so they say) and yet who complains! this is a matter of stupidity and deception! WALLS make good neighbors! My neighbor and I agree that our wall between us is GOOD! There is NOTHING more to it than to keep people honest and keep things separate! To much to expect people to stay out when they aren’t made to STASY out or away! that’s why banks have doors and vaults…stay out you can’t come on UNINVITED!!

  9. I like the valuable info you provide in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.

  11. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My
    apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this
    website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads
    super fast for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog! Incredible!
    This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much
    the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
