'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 





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.
