A House chairman just informed those sanctuary cities that funding for police, jails and public housing are about to be stopped. The executive orders that Trump signed will tighten the grip on immigration and minimizing or cutting funding entirely, to all cities who harbor illegal immigrant criminals.
When a city doesn’t comply with the federal law that require authorities to report illegal immigrant criminals, then the city doesn’t deserve to receive national funding.
Democrat mayors, like Mayor Rahm in Chicago and Mayor Kenney in Philly, better step up or their city will go down the tubes. Chicago is already in shambles with some of the worst murder rates in the country. Philly will end up like that if they don’t get a real mayor soon.
If your unfortunate enough to live in a sanctuary city and your mayor doesn’t follow the laws, then prepare for budget cuts. This WILL lead to higher taxes for the hard working citizens. It won’t affect the illegals because they’re not paying taxes anyway.
This funding cut targets cities who chose to keep CRIMINALS in their city. You have to ask your mayor why they’re keeping law breakers in town. Wouldn’t your city be nicer with fewer people breaking the law?
The House chairman who oversees Justice Department spending is telling so-called “sanctuary cities” that funding for police, jails and housing will end under President Trump’s new executive orders tightening immigration control.
“It’s real easy, their money disappears. There’s no fight, their money is gone,” said Texas Rep. John Culberson, chairman of the appropriations subcommittee that funds Justice.
Culberson last year forced the Obama administration to warn several sanctuary cities and jurisdictions about the funding cut off. In an interview for Sunday’s Full Measure With Sharyl Attkisson, he said that Trump’s new order covers all 300 of the sanctuaries.
“They are in violation of federal law because federal law requires state and local jurisdictions can’t interfere in any way with sharing information about criminal illegal aliens in their custody; in any way means you must cooperate 100 percent of the time — 99 out of 100 of sharing information is not enough,” he told the news magazine show.
Obama sent warnings. Trump sent warnings. Now it’s going to happen. Governor Abbott in Texas has already cut funding to Austin.
I mean REALLY, why WOULDN’T you report illegal immigrants who are criminals?
