President Trump has threatened to do it.
He said he’d send apprehended border crossers to sanctuary cities, despite backlash from far-left progressives who love them some illegal immigration.
Now, it looks like Trump will stay true to his word.
Those Illegal Immigrants who can no longer be legally held (Congress must fix the laws and loopholes) will be, subject to Homeland Security, given to Sanctuary Cities and States!
It was unclear, however, whether the Department of Homeland Security is taking any steps to implement the contentious plan. Lawyers there had previously told the White House that the idea was unfeasible and a misuse of funds. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already strapped for cash.
It takes a special kind of person to defend sanctuary cities.
It’s even worse when that person knows a police officer was just murdered by an illegal alien.
From Free Beacon:
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D., N.Y.) on Sunday defended sanctuary policies that a California county sheriff blames for the death of an officer.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Jeffries was asked about Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson’s indictment of California’s expansive sanctuary laws that prevent local law enforcement from cooperating with immigration authorities. Christianson said slain officer Ronil Singh would be alive today if California didn’t let go of arrested illegal immigrants, such as suspect Gustavo Perez Arriaga.
Jeffries: “My experience in New York has been different, where members of the NYPD—clearly the most professional, highly trained law enforcement entity in the country, if not the world—has been that these sanctuary laws actually help promote public safety by encouraging cooperation, encouraging communication between community and police in a way that allows police to better do their job.”
“I’m not going to take issue with the sheriff’s assessment of the situation, being unfamiliar with California laws. Clearly it’s a human tragedy. Clearly we have to do better in terms of preventing these types of occurrences from taking place and keeping our law enforcement safe, to keep our communities safe. That’s what Democrats intend to do and will continue to do on a bipartisan fashion.“
