'We're going to see more': Sanctuary cities cave in face of Trump's funding threats

Image result for not a sanctuary city anymoreSeveral towns, cities and counties around the nation are caving to President Trump's threat to pull funding, and abandoning their "sanctuary" pledges to shield illegal immigrants from federal authorities.

Dayton, Ohio, dropped a policy that restricted the city’s cooperation with immigration officials pursuing illegal immigrants arrested for misdemeanors or felony property crimes, according to the Dayton Daily News. Police Chief Richard Biehl said federal authorities will no longer be impeded by the city when pursuing illegal immigrants being held by his department.

Other communities that have dropped policies of shielding illegal immigrant suspects from Immigration and Customs Enforcement include Miami-Dade and Dayton, are Saratoga, N.Y., Finney County, Kan., and Bedford, Penn., according to The Center for Immigration Studies, which keeps a list of sanctuary communities.

“We are reviewing policy changes at a multitude of other jurisdictions as well,” said Marguerite Telford, CIS’s director of communications, who said the organization is “being inundated” by officials on its sanctuary map who want to be taken off.

The mayor of Miami-Dade County, which was considered a sanctuary community, made headlines recently when he changed a policy that called for refusing to hold arrested immigrants for immigration officials unless they committed to reimbursing the county for the cost of detention.

Telling reporters that he did not want to imperil hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding, Mayor Carlos Gimenez ordered jails to comply with federal immigration detention requests.

The changes have come on the heels of President Trump’s executive order giving the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security the power to cut federal funding to communities that are deemed sanctuaries for illegal immigrants. Trump also has authorized the DHS to publish a weekly list of sanctuary communities.

Looks to me The Rats are leaving a sinking ship! Gee, Can this be Voters Revenge on those American Traitors?   

See how much power is in the vote when we have a true American running for office.

Well at least that's a start.

So much for their "so called" principles....they blinked...it will be interesting to see what happens to San Francisco, Chicago and New York when they lose all their federal funding...

They are in the 9th Circuit so some commie judge will say ya can't take their federal breast away

The heck with cutting funding arrest the city leaders for Obstruction of Justice.

That's what I've been wondering about.

They (evil doers) have found that Trump is a "man of his word"! That is a new thing in political life. When have we ever seen a president come out swinging and fighting for "We the People"! He started before he was sworn in. God has answered our prayers and raised up and man some years ago who would experience things that we have no idea about. Trump was groomed by God to do this job just as Moses was groomed in Egypt before he could use him. Now as God empowered Moses He will empower Trump to accomplish what He wants. We are in the process of being blessed. Sit back and watch the salvation of the Lord!

Amen, Brother! All the Glory to the Father.
Even without the perceived,albeit perhaps imminent threat of withdrawal of federal funds, one would think the Kate Steinle case in San Francisco could or would have served not just a landmark but a benchmark case of what tragedy could befall ordinary innocent US citizens if the so-called 'sanctuary' status is maintained in open defiance of federal mandate. But yet, to confound the issue and as if to insult the memory of a lovely 32 year old woman and now the lifetime lament of her grieving family, the city council of San Francisco has now elected to hire a former AG to argue for and fight for retention of the sacrosanct autonomy, as it were, of the city of San Francisco to pretty much continue as a "safe" haven for illegal noncitizens with criminal records. That the city of San Francisco can or may "successfully" argue its case at the level of the APPELLATE COURT, given the hubristic notoriety of the US 9TH
District Appeals Court in San Francisco as being the bastion of liberal jurisprudence, what about its record with or at the USSC? If the DOJ of the Trump administration elects to elevate such cases all the way to the SCOTUS, what then are the chances that the city of San Francisco, its mayor and city council that their "legal victory" at the Appellate Court level would continue thereby lording over the rest of the federal legal landscape in regard to immigration laws while indirectly or worse even directly thumbing their noses at President Trump right there in his nick of the woods, Washington DC?
If I am a betting man, I would bet the last dollar in my wallet with President Trump when he tweeted,"See you in Court".
If I am a resident in the Bay Area and about to pay the law firm of former US Attorney General, Eric Holder their requisite legal fee of hundreds of thousands of $ from the city or state taxpayer's contingency funds, I'd be shaking in my boots and nervously biting my thumb nail. And this is not to mention the spectre of not getting the millions of federal funds for the city just because of its arrogant display of liberal buffoonery and likely sheer utter disdainful contempt and pathological hatred for President Trump.

Perhaps we could send all the criminal illegals to San Francisco and build a huge wall around IT!

it seems to me that the officials who make the decision to break federal law should be arrested for BREAKING THE LAW ! just like you or I. THAT will make the others get in line and think twice about breaking the law again. TRUMP and his DOJ need to make a statement that there is a new Sheriff and breaking the law will not be tolerated

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
