Sessions Gives Sanctuary Cities a Final Warning

This is why President Trump needs to put aside his frustrations with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who handed the Russia “collusion” investigation over to a special prosecutor who will look into every crevice of the West Wing trying to find wrongdoing. Because Sessions is the best person to implement Trump’s immigration policy, which was a lynchpin of his campaign.

Sessions is trying to make local jurisdictions follow the rule of law instead of their “hearts,” which are actually in the wrong place. Immigration is a federal matter. A federal election was held in 2016, and Trump won it. As much as I would be tempted to allow sanctuary cities to secede from the nation, it’s probably better to keep the country together, as Abraham Lincoln once said. Or, you know, he said something like that.

From Fox News:

The Justice Department on Thursday delivered a “last chance” warning to cities suspected of having “sanctuary” policies to drop their resistance to federal immigration officials.

In a notice reviewed by Fox News, the DOJ announced that five jurisdictions “have preliminarily been found to have laws, policies, or practices that may violate” a key federal statute concerning cooperation with federal immigration officials.

They are: Chicago, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia and Cook County, Ill.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a written statement that sanctuary cities “adopt the view that the protection of criminal aliens is more important than the protection of law-abiding citizens and of the rule of law.”

  1. What a mess. Arizona and Sheriff Arpaio raked over the coals for trying to enforce Federal laws while Dem Mayors and now CA thumb their noses at the law of the land.
    Why? Cheap labor, stealth voters and ??
    The next legal move should be to eliminate the “anchor baby” laws.

  2. I have tried to talk to Philadelphia city officials (democratic-socialists, and rather racist) that they are breaking US law being a “sanctuary city”…they then start yelling & babbling at me like they are a 4 year old have a temper tantrum.

  3. My son just moved from Austin after five years. He moved there after six years in NZ. He was naive imo. But it is now intolerable. If CA seceded, it wouldn’t bother me. I used to love going out there on vacation, it was such a beautiful state.

  4. “Sessions is trying to make local jurisdictions follow the rule of law instead of their “hearts,” ”

    Hearts, hell, it’s votes. As for California…once the fires are out it won’t be Mexico or Central America that comes in with the federal funds.

    Go after ’em Mr. Sessions — hammer down, flat out, and ballzto the wall.
