Democrats defying Trump’s sanctuary city order make illegal lives matter more than American ones
Why are liberals so shocked by U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s first week in office? He’s doing exactly what he campaigned he would do for a year: Building a wall and cracking down on illegal aliens.
In other words, Trump is doing the things that the left said couldn’t be done.
He hit the ground running, wasting no time in signing a series of executive orders — during his first week in office, no less — including an order to cut off federal funds from sanctuary cities that all but recruit, then harbor illegal aliens.
In that same executive order, Trump expanded the categories of illegal aliens that will be identified and deported by local law enforcement. Now, it’s ‘adios’ to anyone charged with any offence, or is deemed “a risk to public safety.”
Trump reinstated the Secure Communities program requiring police to arrest illegals and hold them under “detainers” until federal agents pick them up. Because liberal-run cities and counties refused to deport illegal aliens under Barack Obama, he required that local law enforcement only co-operate with federal authorities in deporting illegal aliens with a criminal record.
Now we have a president who’s legitimately trying to make America safe again … and the response from Democrat mayors and governors is defiance, by refusing to comply with an order that puts American citizens above non-citizen border-hoppers.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, a Democrat governing one of the largest sanctuary cities in the country, vowed to flout Trump’s order. This is the mayor of the city where American Kate Steinle was murdered in 2015 by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, who had been deported five times.
San Francisco could lose more than $1 billion in federal funding by sheltering illegals. Let’s see how long Lee’s righteousness holds out. Of course, Lee isn’t the only one acting foolish.
Money walks; stupid talks.
“We will not be intimidated by the threat to federal funding,” declared Democrat Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. But Walsh will gladly help illegals steal jobs from Americans — not to mention threaten their safety.
“We will not be intimidated by the authoritarian message coming from this administration,” Democrat Seattle Mayor Ed Murray chirped.
The commander-in-chief demanding that our nation follow the rule of law and the constitution isn’t “intimidation,” nor is it a choice.
In a city where blacks are disproportionately unemployed compared to whites, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser also got on her high liberal horse and tweeted:
“I can’t say it any more clearly: DC will remain a #SanctuaryCity to keep all of our residents safe.” Harboring illegal aliens is anything but safe for American citizens. Let’s see how long Bowser’s lawlessness lasts in Trump’s new backyard.
While the list of stupid is long, one of the worst responses came from Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Not only did he boast that he would welcome a fight with Trump, de Blasio claimed on CNN that it was heartless to deport breadwinners, albeit illegal ones.
“So you deport the breadwinner and the rest of the family, including the children, are left without anyone. You tear a family apart. That’s not good government. That’s not in my view moral.”
Good government used to look out for American citizens, not criminals who steal their jobs and bread. (Further, what’s stopping the breadwinner from loading his wife and kids into the station wagon and heading back south of the border as a unit?) It’s interesting that these Democrats so loathe America and its people that they choose to side with criminals. I predict that Trump may have to call in the National Guard to force these lawless liberal mayors into compliance.
To put things into perspective, there are about 300 sanctuary cities and counties across the country, predominately governed by Democrats. One would think that Trump had announced an anti-American policy instead of one to purge our cities of people living in the U.S. illegally, stealing jobs from Americans, not paying taxes, wiring money back to their home countries like Mexico, and — in some cases, killing us.
Maybe the left, particularly the liberal media, is still shell-shocked that the man they derided and mocked as a clown not only won ‘big league,’ but is delivering on his promises ‘big league.’
