“Sanctuary cities” to continue? Will Trump crackdown?

Democrats have learned NOTHING.

They catered to illegals AND still lost…

Illegal activity will continue is Chicago…

In LA/NY too

Officials in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday said they hoped President-elect Donald Trump would not follow through on a campaign promise to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities” that shield people who are in the country illegally.

The nation’s two largest cities have sharply limited their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities seeking to deport undocumented immigrants.

President Barack Obama’s administration has used so-called detainer requests to target undocumented immigrants convicted of criminal acts, especially violent ones.

New York and Los Angeles do not hold undocumented inmates in jail at the request of the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) unless the detainer request is accompanied by a judge’s order, officials said.

Trump said during a debate with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in October he would seek to deport major drug dealers. “We have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out,” he said.

Trump says this will stop…

Remember, for years we have been told this is SOLEY the purview of the Federal government, let’s see how this plays out

As part of his 100-day action plan, President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to block all federal funding to sanctuary cities.

What is a sanctuary city? Here’s what it means to 22-year-old Thais Marques, an undocumented immigrant who lives in the sanctuary city of Newark, N.J.: “It means that I can be safe in my own city,” she said. “If I get pulled over or if something happens, I know that my family won’t be detained and I won’t be detained.”

More than 350 counties, cities and states are so-called sanctuaries. There isn’t a legal definition for a “sanctuary city.” But, generally, these places have policies, police department orders or nonbinding resolutions that limit government officials from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement.

If they don’t like it, maybe they can leave?
