Kirstjen Nielsen Under Siege

There is no disagreeing with the Left anymore. Now you’re either Mother Theresa or Hitler.

After preventing Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen from peacefully downing a chimichanga or two at a Washington Mexican restaurant, leftist protestors now want to stop her from sleeping too.

Protestors Friday morning woke her up to the tune of crying babies.

And her former high school classmates are after her too. According to the Washington Post:

Hundreds of alumni from the high school that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen attended in Florida have penned a letter expressing outrage about the harsh immigration policies instituted in part by Nielsen that have resulted in the separation of thousands of children from their parents, and asking school officials to condemn them.

The digital letter was drafted Monday after a group of alumni of Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa said they were distressed by Nielsen’s vigorous defense during a combative news conference Monday of the separations of migrant families crossing illegally into the United States from Mexico. The separations were a result of the Trump administration’s new hard-line immigration policies, which are implemented in large part by the Department of Homeland Security.

“After the press conference we were like, ‘Oh my god, this is real and who is this woman and what is she doing in regards to everything we were taught?’ ” said Emily Dolgin, a senior at Barnard College and a 2015 graduate of the high school.

How about instead of signing letters each of you foster one of these children?

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.”
