'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.

I will believe it when I see Nat Guard, local police, and active military Billy Clubbing the crowds of protestors into submission.

Shoot them as they cross our borders coming in-hitting them running out too, for the betterment of societies worldwide. They are all parasites-International border crosser's seeking to drian & disrespect country's sovereignty. Those that do it illegally looking for a free ride on the backs of others. Put a round in it!

" Forbes contributor Adam Andrzejewski reported that more than 300 government jurisdictions claim to be sanctuaries, of which 106 are cities and “the rest are states, counties or other units of government.”

Supporters of sanctuary communities say that people who are here illegally but have not posed a danger to others or had trouble with police should not be turned over to immigration authorities.

Some police and town officials further argue that working with immigration officials will make people fearful of turning to them if they are the victim of a crime or have information about one.

“It’s incredibly disappointing to see cities and counties scaling back so-called "sanctuary" policies, which were largely adopted to further public safety and ensure immigrants weren’t afraid to call the police,”,Grace Meng, a senior researcher with Human Rights Watch toldFox News.

Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, predicted many more communities will be dropping or dramatically modifying their sanctuary stances.

“We’re going to see more of this,” Mehlman told Fox News. “Faced with the possibility of losing federal dollars, they’ll choose to keep funding public services rather than protecting illegal aliens.” "

That brakes my little heart into many peices NOT!!!!

When is the former AG Holder going to answer the charges of "CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS"?

Holder will answer any charges

Keep DRAINING these worthless swamps! If I was Trump I would refuse all military assistance (Including National Guard) in the event of disasters or if the scum cities marches turn into looting & rioting! Let them handle their own catastrophes & spend their own tax dollars on the Liberal Crap the ILLEGALS want for FREE! Eventually, the smart business owners will shut down & move elsewhere & the sanctuaries will collapse. Maybe Washington States Worthless Governor Jay Inslee will have his buddies on "Death Row" (who he spared)  stop over to his house & help his family out in a crisis since these nice murders need to be supported forever on your tax dollars! Another Liberal IDIOT like Seattle's Mayor "Maggot" Murray!! Two that are a waste of Good Panties!!

Dont let them cave in,,,let them freeze in the dark,,,aka screw them

I reckon they don't care about living anymore, because I think a lot of Conservatives have had about enough of their Hitlery Heckling! Most are illegals anyway, so NOBODY will miss them & many HOGS are hungry for Mexican Food! It's a good way to rid ourselves of the illegal punks!

No evidence? How about 72 terror convictions
Score this one a "yuuuge" win for President Trump.

Over the last eight days a Seattle federal judge and three jurists on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals justified their trampling of Trump's authority to keep the nation safe by claiming there had been no arrests of foreign nationals from his seven temporarily banned countries since 9/11.

They're eating crow now.

A 2016 government report has surfaced that lays it out in black and white ... names, dates, charges, sentences.

And it probably just scratches the surface ...
Read the latest now on WND.com.

Send all muslin refugees into liberal communities and make it law they must remain there while in the country. Send them to Hollywood Beverley Hills to San Francisco, etc. See how fast liberals wake up.

I notice Hollywood isn't inviting them into their community...

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
