Sessions Delivers Ultimatum To Four Sanctuary Cities

DC:

The Department of Justice on Thursday singled out four cities and a major county for allegedly failing to comply with a key federal immigration law, putting their eligibility to receive certain federal grants in jeopardy.

New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Cook County, which includes Chicago and its near suburbs, were found to be in potential violation of 8 USC 1373, a federal statute that bars local jurisdictions from limiting communication with the federal authorities about a person’s immigration status.

The jurisdictions have until Oct. 27 to provide “additional evidence” that their laws and policies do not run afoul of the statute or face the possibility of losing federal law enforcement grants.

“Jurisdictions that adopt so-called ‘sanctuary policies’ also adopt the view that the protection of criminal aliens is more important than the protection of law-abiding citizens and of the rule of law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.  MORE

  1. We need a new Amendment: If any jurisdiction within any state provides sanctuary to illegal immigrants the state shall be considered to be in a state of rebellion against the United States. The state will not be allowed to send electors to the Electoral College, and the state’s Senators shall be expelled from the Senate. All members of the House of Representatives who have illegal alien sanctuaries with their districts shall be expelled from the House.

    Yawn. I’m not one to generally give up on someone, but come on!

    Stop with the warning and do your job. President Trump already gave the country all the warning they needed. What are you doing but saying, “All right, kids. I’m going to count to three and you better stop it!”

    Dumb shit.

  4. As A Californian and an American who believes in the Constitution, I am certainly wondering how this entire State government has avoided this “warning”.
