LA mayor vows to fight Trump administration attempt to strip ‘sanctuary city’ funding

Responding to the latest warnings by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Department of Justice funds will be withheld from sanctuary cities, Mayor Eric Garcetti said Monday he will fight efforts by the Trump administration to take away federal funding needed for law enforcement in Los Angeles.
Garcetti said that such actions would be unconstitutional, adding that the city’s policies are “designed to keep our residents safe.”
“Slashing funds for first-responders, for our port and airport, for counterterrorism, crime-fighting and community-building serves no one — not this city, not the federal government, not the American people,” he said. “We will fight to protect the safety and dignity of all Angelenos, and we will work closely with our representatives in Congress to make sure that Los Angeles does not go without federal resources that help protect millions of people every day.”

After Attorney General Jeff Sessions reiterated the federal government’s threat to block funding for so-called “sanctuary cities,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel doubled down on his own promise that Chicago will “continue to welcome” immigrants.

“I’ve always seen Chicago as a welcoming city,” Emanuel said in an interview from the Nasdaq stock exchange in New York on Monday.

DC Mayor, Police Dept. reiterate District policy of not enforcing civil immigration laws

WASHINGTON (CBS) – A Massachusetts law enforcement official testifying before Congress on Tuesday called for leaders of sanctuary cities to be arrested.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told the House Subcommittee on Illegal Immigration that sanctuary cities “have become magnets for illegal aliens, some of which have violent criminal records.”
“If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials,” Hodgson said. “Our citizens would be safer if we never stopped enforcing immigration law and if we never formed or turned a blind eye toward sanctuary cities.”
California immigration town hall to highlight state’s red-blue divide…
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) – Liberal California was set to square off against conservative elements in the state at a town hall meeting on immigration on Tuesday night featuring the director of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

    • Take the locks off the doors of anyone who supports “open borders”, ILLEGALS, and Refujihadis …… They want to take the locks off YOUR country, they should not be allowed to have locks on their homes or fences or guards around “THEIR” property.

  1. Freeze their assets as surety bond that they will pay 100% reparations for any crime committed by the ILLEGALS that ey are HARBORING.
    If you provide “sanctuary” then YOU assume PERSONAL FINANCIAL LIABILITY and you are an active ACCESSORY to any crimes they committ. As for all the “human rights activists” … to let so many people in unfettered, stomps on the HUMAN RIGHTS of the native population. Jesus told us to go out into the world, into every country and preach his message. And he said something else. If those people reject the message, shake the dust off our feet and move on. In other words… go to those people and try to help them, if they choose not to listen, to hell with them.
    He did not tell us to gather up every foreign scumbag, bring them home with us, and just let them run wild in the streets. If a Christian wants to go to another country and give it a try, my hat’s off to him, and put me down for a $50 contribution. But Jesus never told me I have to ruin my country bringing them here. And even if we do manage to bring some of those people to The Lord, it doesn’t do their countries any good to snatch up the candle we just lit and bring it home with us. The goal of the whole thing is to leave the lit candle there so it can illumionate that dark place and hopefully the light will spread.

  2. “our” politicians take oaths to uphold the LAW and the Constitution. When they REFUSE to, when they openly DEFY and circumvent the LAW, they FORFEIT their “Governmental Immunity”. Every Politician who goes on record as supporting “sanctuary cities” & ILLEGAL INVADERS should be held financially responsible for PAYING REPARATIONS for the crimes done by the ILLEGALS.
    ALL immigrants must have SPONSORS who will be accountable for the actions of the immigrant. Supporters of ILLEGALS are ASSUMING SPONSORSHIP of all Illegals and therefore are FINANCIALLY responsible for CRIMES and LIFE SUPPORT of ALL illegals. NO illegals should be on TAXPAYER DOLE, they should be living on the wealth of their SPONSORS and in THEIR HOUSES.
