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.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
