Congress Mulls Bill to Strip All Funds from Sanctuary Cities
The topic of illegal immigration was obviously something discussed for hours during the season of the election. The liberals are on one side begging to accept everyone that wants to come in our nation, and then you have the conservatives on the other side, asking for a stronger border.
When Donald Trump made his infamous claim to build a huge wall, he sparked the discussion about illegal immigration even more, and now that he is in the White House as POTUS, his border policies are likely to be approved, despite some opposition still going around against him.
A number of cities and mayors have declared designation of their cities as “sanctuary cities” that will do what they can to protect these illegal immigrants from being deported by the federal government, but if they think that they’re going to be successful with opposing the federal government – they will be proven wrong!
A representative from Pennsylvania just introduced a bill that will cut off all federal funding to state, country as well as local jurisdictions with sanctuary policies. In other words, cities like Chicago and Los Angeles want to keep their policies on sanctuary cities but they will have to do it on their own – WITHOUT FEDERAL FUNDING.
So, simply put, these cities are on their own if they don’t change their attitude.
Representative Lou Barletta stated that “Not one cent,” will be given to “These mayors, sheriffs, and state leaders are thumbing their noses at federal immigration law. The only way to stop them is to hit them in their pocketbooks.”
He also added that the leaders of these sanctuary jurisdictions are not only violating the federal law, but they’re in a way “bragging about it in press conferences.” And as we all know, President Trump won’t let this slide off easily. As laws are equal for everyone, if you break them – you suffer the consequences.
All over the country Mayors have been lining up to declare themselves as sanctuary cities. Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago Mayor has said “Chicago always will be a sanctuary city. TO all those who are, after Tuesday’s election, very nervous and filled with anxiety … you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you and supported in Chicago.”
And although Mayor Rahm thinks that Chicago is going to be a “sanctuary city” and stay safe, looking at the statistics, 800 murders have been reported near the end of 2016. If you ask us, we’d think twice before allowing anyone in our city.
We know for a fact that Americans are dying out there at the hands of illegals and this must stop somewhere at some point. First they come in our country, rape, pillage and murder, and now they’re even starting to demand and sue for their “rights” even though they’re inexistent?
We don’t know about the people from these “sanctuary cities”, but we’re definitely going to stand up for this. Our President knows what is best for our country, and he won’t stop until he achieves it.
We think that President Trump deserves all support he can get on this one, as it is not an issue concerning money or power, it is an issue that concerns our safety. If you too agree with us, share this article and spread the word, President Trump NEEDS YOUR support NOW!
