Attorney General Jeff Sessions Announces Action To Strip DOJ Funding To Sanctuary Cities…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces the DOJ intends to crack down on municipal authorities who refuse to comply with Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers to remove illegal alien criminals.

Attorney General Sessions announced if municipal authorities at city, county and state level, refuse to comply with U.S. immigration law they will lose federal funding provided by the Department of Justice through federal grants.  The DOJ will also take action to claw back any grant monies that have been provided to sanctuary cities who continue to refuse compliance.

    LIberals are already screaming. How can anyone support illegal activity in any capacity? Makes no sense.

    Great job today. And really, no one is forcing any city to forego funds; just follow the law.
    Simple.

    I love Jeff and my President, but it think their response on this issue is too polite and will produce disastrously heartbreaking results. Why? Economic sanctions are equal to a slap on the wrist to Federal lawbreakers. If you or I decided to defy a Federal Order, would we get off so easily? NO. We would expect to go to prison. So should they? Session’s pussified response is unequal justice under the law. But here is the real problem: Those governing sanctuary cities do not care about us. They also have a huge problem with voter fraud. You can say that the people need to rise up, but that is pretty hard to do when everyone from the Governor down to the police chief is corrupt. Add to that unconstitutional surveillance, and the ability for the CIA to plant evidence and imprison anyone, and we don’t stand a chance. They don’t care about economic sanctions, because they will pass the cost on to the tax paying deplorables of the state. Jeff Sessions response (although I believe unintentional) shows he is naïve, and is still operating under “gentleman’s principles”. It shows that he still hasn’t realized who it is he is dealing with.

        President Trump and Senator Sessions go back many years. PDJT credits Sen. Sessions with laying the framework for then Candidate Trump’s campaign stand on the trail, with respect to what is necessary to regain control of our boarders and immigration system. Sen. Sessions demeanor has nothing to do with his iron-clad understanding of the rule of law, as well as the necessary tactics needed to reaffirm the law within our nation.

        With all do respect…financial sanctions are not a tough – enough response for crimes that should be treated as criminal …and would be if they were committed by anyone else. Just wait until the next Kate Steinle or Jamiel. How much longer do we have to play these games?

      This all has to be incremental in order to be feasible. We have to make as many municipalities and states comply on their own as possible. This is the same as getting as many people to self deport as possible by removing the immigration pulls that exist here for them. Then we move up to the next level, where there are less of them to deal with.

      This is common sense. You’re talking emotionally and we need to approach this logically. What are we, liberals????

        The survival instinct can break through brainwashing. People have to be shown they will survive and better under Trump actions. They used to call this deprogramming. This is easier than instigating WWIII before you have the resources in place

        Definitely 20 foot deeper in built up areas like California and some other spots on the border where they are free to dig a tunnel from one warehouse to another. The announced 6 foot depth is wholly in adequate for those areas, which have been tunnelled for years. We completely fill the tunnels found from our end, but the Mexicans, when caught, plug the hole, post a sleeping guard, and dig back to the tunnel from another warehouse. Saves ’em lots of time keeping those underground railroads humming.

  13. This move is brilliant! Coming from the land where our politicians spend their retirement in a jail cell, locking away the political opposition (ie. local level Democrats) definitely does not dull the voting population from supporting their policies because they will simply vote in a person just the same to fill their place. However, revoking funds is going to place a very real stress on every person in sanctuary communities, a stress that exists solely because of Democrat politicians. This is an excellent way to actually force a change in community opinion of policy. Also, remember liberals only love their policies as long as they don’t actually have to suffer the consequences.

    I must say, this is what winning the war looks like! #NotTiredYet 😀 😀 😀

      Let’s hope we arrest activist judges that attempt to block the legal actions of a very legitimate President with a very serious AG. There are arrests to be made and courts to be abolished. They have chosen to ignore their proper purpose and have presumed to take upon themselves the mantle of “Masters of the Universe.” It is activist judges that “have no standing.” On the other hand, We the People, do.

    Why must the federal government give any money, to any city or county law enforcement agency in order to hold-over any one they suspect, with cause, to be in violation of federal statutes?

    Its there job. Hold them and inform the feds to pick them up. End of story.

    That way the federales get none of our money, depriving them of their only tool to promote globalist agendas at the the municipal levels.

    That leaves us more money to clean up our cities, as we see fit.

      We need to set things up so that a many self deport as possible which I think i start of the Sessions/Trump strategy bc it is the most practical and cost effective. Cut off every single penny of any type of money or service to them, no free education, fine employers who hire them and landlords who rent to them.
