Several 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!
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
