America’s cities, particularly those run by liberal Democrats, have developed an awful habit over the past 8 years.
They have convinced themselves that they can help illegal alien criminals violate and evade federal immigration law without consequence.
We all know the story of Kate Steinle. She was killed in San Francisco by a five-time deported illegal alien who was on the police’s radar, but was allowed to roam the street because of the city’s sanctuary city policy. But there are countless other cases of Americans being victimized by illegal aliens who were protected by liberal Democrat mayors.
Over the past 8 years, this may have made sense to liberal Democrats. The Obama administration certainly wasn’t enforcing immigration laws, so why would liberal cities step up?
Here’s the problem: Over the summer, Congress introduced legislation to defund sanctuary cities alongside Kate’s Law. Democrats filibustered the bill. Even though Republicans had the power to override the Democrats’ filibuster and put the bill onto Obama’s desk, they chose not to.
GOP support for this sanctuary cities bill is a façade. They talk the talk, but are terrified to walk the walk. And now, the liberal mayors in cities like Chicago and New York are fighting back.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has promised that illegal aliens will always be welcome in the city. He has refused to cooperate with Federal immigration authorities once Trump takes office. No matter how heinous the crime, they will protect these criminal illegal aliens from being deported.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has promised to destroy the city's records of illegal alien residents. The city had illegal aliens come forward and register for driver’s licenses. Now that Donald Trump is taking over and promising the swift deportation of all criminal illegal aliens, de Blasio is destroying the records.
Congress is back in session today. The President-elect sent every Congressman and Senator in the Republican Caucus a Make America Great Again hat as a sign of unity.
If we are going to Make America Great Again, that has to start with immediately defunding the Sanctuary Cities that harbor illegal alien criminals!
There is currently legislation pending in both the House and the Senate that would do just that. But, it is a compromise bill aimed at trying to convince Democrats to support it.
Now that the GOP will have control of all of Congress and the Presidency, there is no need for a watered down sanctuary cities bill.
The House leadership plans on putting this same bill up for a vote when Donald Trump takes over the White House. This will let them appear to “do something” while simultaneously holding back.
That is not good enough. Just four days ago, an illegal alien was arrested and charged with rape and aggravated sexual battery after he crashed his car into another vehicle and proceeded to rape the other driver in a roadside ditch. The rape occurred in the State of Virginia, where the State’s Governor has refused to cooperate with Federal immigration officials. News organizations referred to him simply as “a man,” deliberately leaving out his immigration status.
The fact that this illegal alien rapist is being held on an immigration detainer is a small miracle considering the violent criminals Obama has let go… But it serves as a reminder of just what we are fighting for.
GOP leadership wants to push through a sanctuary cities bill that is full of loopholes and concessions. It is up to YOU to force Congress to stop conceding and pass real Conservative reform!
Not one step backwards,
