Since Trump took office, the Left has been making moves to protect the illegals in their cities and states like never before. It’s unthinkable that these clowns are prioritizing non-citizens over actual Americans, but it’s happening.
The combination of defying Trump and subverting the nation is just too appealing apparently, as liberals are openly creating sanctuaries for illegals, giving them all the perks that citizenry brings. While the Trump administration is one of the inspirations for their actions, it still has the ability to squash their little rebellion, which is exactly what’s about to happen.
As reported at Fox News, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been on the warpath against sanctuary cities since he assumed office, but on Thursday, he issued a dire warning to cities sheltering illegals and ignoring federal immigration law.
The Department of Justice has said that their latest declaration is a “last chance” warning to cities suspected of having “sanctuary” policies, and urged them to drop their resistance to federal immigration officials, lest they see their federal funding go bye-bye.
Specifically, the DOJ mentioned 5 jurisdictions that “have preliminarily been found to have laws, policies, or practices that may violate” a key federal statute concerning cooperation with federal immigration officials.
The List: Chicago, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, and Cook County, Ill.
Sessions issued a statement condemning these areas, saying the “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.”
“I urge all jurisdictions found to be out of compliance in this preliminary review to reconsider their policies that undermine the safety of their residents,” he said.
The statute he mentioned is one that prevents local authorities from cooperating with federal immigration personnel, which is what these cities have been doing to defy Trump’s policies.
Earlier this year, Sessions threatened to take federal grants away from sanctuary cities. However, the liberal courts thus far have ruled that he cannot take such action, but that hasn’t prevented him from pursuing retribution against them.
The Justice Department said the five cities and counties in question will have until Oct. 27 to “provide additional evidence that the interpretation and application of their laws, policies, or practices comply with the statute.”
Of course, there’s no way they can provide justification for harboring illegals and ignoring federal law. But no doubt they’re going to try, and hope that the impending lawsuits will be overseen by a leftist judge. That’s how they get away with such insanity. The Left’s control of the courts allows blue states and cities to get away with anything.
However, if there was ever a team of people capable of bringing the hammer down on out of control liberal cities, it’s the combo of Sessions and Trump.
