GOP states move to block sanctuary cities after Trump order

Image result for defund sanctuary citiesAmid protests over President Trump’s executive order aiming to block federal funding to so-called sanctuary cities, Republican legislators across the country are moving to deny their own funding to cities that refuse to comply with federal immigration authorities.

The Texas state Senate on Wednesday passed a measure to block state funding to cities in which law enforcement officials disregard federal immigration laws. The measure would require police agencies to hold anyone in custody until U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement is able to verify their immigration status, or risk losing state funding.

Similar legislation has been introduced in Ohio, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, Idaho and Pennsylvania. Other laws are likely to be introduced in the coming weeks. Many are inspired by Trump’s executive orders barring refugees and blocking all immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.

“What he’s doing is a great idea. We need to protect Americans, we need to protect Tennesseans,” state Sen. Mark Green (R), author of his state’s version of the sanctuary city ban, said in an interview. “We’re going to take it a step further and enhance what the president is doing and take state dollars from cities that decide, because they want to, to ignore ICE detainers.”

this needs to start right now. We have to get this done.

Agreed Michael

Sanctuary cities are a direct violation of federal laws. A safe haven for criminal illegal aliens.America for Americans!

Hey treat Veterans the same as they do illeagles and then treat illeagles the same as we treated Veterans, you see the left wing wackos have it backwards.

I couldn't agree more. I'm happy to see that my state is on the list of states that are enforcing these immigration laws.

Should have been done forty years ago !  Sanctuary cities have been around for a least that long or longer ! Both the democrat and republican parties are guilty of allowing people to cross US borders illegally ! Democrat party for votes and republican party for cheep labor ! 

.....to see the "average" American citizen suffering JUST TO PAY the rent, is very sickening!! but to see an American city harbor and support criminals, is ABSURD!!!  ENOUGH, ALREADY, ARREST THEM ALL WHO IS INVOLVED!!!! 

The word here is not need to do, it is  "NEED TO DO!!"    NOW!!!!

The Constitutional, Lawful defunding and closing down all Sanctuary Cities Across Our America, Is an long, Long Over Due Reckoning of some of the true loathers and Haters of Our Constitution and the Supreme Laws.

The Mockery and lawlessness that has run rapid for decades on the tax payer dollars must come to an screeching halt.

These Cities, Counties and States have all been enabled and promoted by career professional sellout, vote chasing politicians across America, On our tax dollars, With well documented Abuses of our government programs and resources',  Soaring to inexcusable levels during Obama and Crew 8 years of assault on Our Supreme Laws and Our Sovereignty, OF OUR UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA..

There has always been a true correlation between Straight forward Law and Order, America's Economic, Social Prosperity And Growth.

 With every lawful tool we have available to us as voting, tax paying Americans, We must demand our Elected,stand and support PRESIDENT TRUMP, 24-7, Or look for a different job come election time. 

GOD BLESS AMERICA  02-13-17

Start arresting those who implement sanctuary anything and charge them with sedition and aiding and abetting enemies. Mayors, Governors, Councilmen--WHOEVER.

Use the RICO laws.

get r' done!

Thank you Ted, we all agree.   Illegals are costing our Country a fortune, flooding our schools, hospitals, and services with a burden that costs the average citizen.  Hard working Americans have no duty to support these people who desire to "game" our system.  Actually Liberals, like Luis Gutierrez, actually hold meetings, in Spanish, teaching these people how to apply for Welfare, teaching them to take advantage of programs that are for Americans, not for "Illegals". President Trump has now initiated action to start removing these Leeches, and Parasites.  It is about time we had a President who puts Americans first.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
