Victory for Donald Trump: San Fran Introduces Legislation to Cancel Sanctuary City Policy

This is definitely a win for Donald Trump, who has brought the issue of illegal immigration and crime to the forefront in America and the people love him for it. Sanctuary cities are an abomination of the Left. No one should be above the law and creating cities that shield and cuddle with criminal illegal aliens is just monstrous. Nancy Pelosi can blather until she’s as blue in her face as in her hair that this is not because of sanctuary city policies, but because of lack of cooperation between agencies… but the truth is, the lack of communication and cooperation between agencies is because of sanctuary city policies. I hope this legislation passes for the sake of those in San Francisco. It would also set an excellent precedent for other sanctuary cities. Now, we just need to boot every Progressive Marxist out of office and secure the borders.

Sanctuary City

From Young Conservatives:

Ever since the tragic murder of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant, a horrific incident that was the direct result of San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy, people have been calling for more cooperation between federal authorities and local law enforcement in order to pursue after those in our country illegally.

This particular issue really got thrown out in the forefront of political conversation in America thanks to Donald Trump, and it looks like the city is at least in some small degree actually listening to what he and others are saying.

From Washington Times:

San Francisco moved this week to try to cancel its sanctuary policy that protected an illegal immigrant murder suspect, but Congress pressed ahead nonetheless with legislation aimed at punishing the California city and any others who refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

House Republicans set up a Thursday debate on a bill that would withhold federal law enforcement grants from jurisdictions that shield illegal immigrants from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), turning back Democrats’ pleas for more time and more hearings on the issue.

The issue has taken off since the July 1 murder of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle as she walked on San Francisco’s Pier 14 with her father. The man accused of her killing was an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record who had been deported five times before and was wanted by ICE officials again, but who was released by San Francisco’s sheriff’s department anyway.

A San Francisco supervisor introduced legislation Tuesday calling on the sheriff to rescind his policy limiting cooperation with federal authorities, and top Democrats in Congress said blame for the killing lies more in miscommunication between San Francisco authorities and federal officials rather than with the sanctuary policy itself.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democrats’ House leader, and Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a top Democrat on immigration, said in a joint letter to Homeland Security and the Justice Department that federal officials need to talk among themselves and with local prosecutors to figure out who should get custody of criminal illegal immigrants.

The whole concept of sanctuary cities is ridiculous in the first place.

If the rest of us who are American citizens break the law, there’s no where we can run and hide from the government. We’re expected to pay the penalty for our crimes, yet an illegal can take up residence in one of these places and be kept safe from the consequences of violating our immigration laws.

It doesn’t take a genius to see this doesn’t make any sense.

America is a land of opportunity that welcomes anyone who is willing to come here through the proper channels and become a productive member of society. We need legal immigrants to be part of this great nation and bring their creativity, work ethic, and innovative ideas here to help us flourish.

Those who cross the border illegally, for the most part, bring none of that to the table. The vast majority are hardened criminals or individuals who just want to leech off our welfare system, placing a heavy strain on our economy, which is the last thing we need right now.

It’s time for these “sanctuary city” polices to be tossed in the garbage and illegals pursued and deported.

That’s not hate, that’s called enforcing the law.

None of this would be occurring if the law was simply enforced and followed. When you have craven bureaucrats who have hidden agendas and think they know what is best for the little people, you get insanity like this. Sanctuary cities and illegal immigration are driven and fueled by corruption and evil people who crave wealth and power. If the average citizen steps out of line, we pay the price. So should illegal immigrants who should not be here in the first place. They need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Those here illegally, should be rounded up and deported en masse, children and all, to their country of origin. The entire border can and should be secured with personnel and a wall. Strict records should be kept of those coming in and out of this country with complete details on their backgrounds. This is not rocket science – it’s called the law. It’s about sovereignty and is a no-brainer. Just ask Donald Trump.
