Trump’s DOJ To Subpoena 23 Sanctuary Cities Unless They Cooperate Immediately

The day of reckoning is on the horizon for the traitorous sanctuary cities making a mockery of our nation’s laws. Across the United States, far-Left politicians have been taking it upon themselves to facilitate the illegal invasion of the country.

They do this while patting themselves on the pack, propping themselves up as symbols of righteousness. Paying no mind to negative effects their Benedict Arnold schemes are having on America. Trump was put in the White House to combat this issue specifically, and on Wednesday, the Justice Department fired another volley across the bow of these sanctimonious liberal cities.

As reported by Fox News, the DOJ has once again threatened to subpoena 23 jurisdictions if they don’t turn over information about their “sanctuary” policies. The announcement has enraged leftists mayors across the nation, who also canceled a scheduled meeting at the White House to discuss the issue.

In letters to New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, and other left-wing jurisdictions, the Justice Department demanded records pertaining to whether or not these localities are “unlawfully restricting information sharing by law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities.”

I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law.”

The long overdue and perfectly justifiable letter has caused many Democratic mayors to boycott a planned working session with the president at the White House on Wednesday.

I will NOT be attending today’s meeting at the White House after @realDonaldTrump’s Department of Justice decided to renew their racist assault on our immigrant communities,” clownish NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted. “It doesn’t make us safer and it violates America’s core values.”

To Bill and his ilk, facilitating an invasion of the US is a “core” American value, as is trampling all over the Constitution. Bill wasn’t the only circus member to wring his hands and accuse the Trump administration of racial animus.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who’s also the president of the US Conference of Mayors, said he would also boycott the meeting.

Unfortunately, the Trump administration’s decision to threaten mayors and demonize immigrants yet again – and use cities as political props in the process – has made this meeting untenable,” Landrieu said.

Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Despite the dog and pony show put on by leftists, the White House said that the meeting will still take place with mayors that want to participate.

“We are disappointed that a number of mayors have chosen to make a political stunt instead of participating in an important discussion with the President and his administration,” said White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters.

The DOJ is setting out to force these cities to prove they’re complying with federal law, or else face the prospect of having their federal funding pulled.

We’ve given them federal dollars – your taxpayer dollars – to cooperate with federal law enforcement,” Sarah Isgur Flores, a spokeswoman for the DOJ, said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.” “They didn’t have to take that money, but they did. And when they took it, they said they would comply with federal law. So what we’re saying is if we find out you’re not complying with federal law, we’re taking the tax dollars back.”

Every sanctuary city mayor should be thrown behind bars for their betrayal of the American people. They’ve elevated illegal foreigners to the level of, if not above, citizens. The least they deserve is to see their funding disappear.
