Amid 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.
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.
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.
