The Nihilism of Sanctuary Cities

There are an estimated 300 or so jurisdictions — entire states, counties, cities, and municipalities — that since the early 1980s have enacted “sanctuary city” laws, forbidding full enforcement of federal immigration law within their jurisdictions.

Most of these entities are controlled by Democrats in general and liberals in particular. Sanctuary officials feel that federal enforcement of the southern border is either unnecessary or immoral, and thus they have decided that there is no real crime in entering and residing in the United States unlawfully. While the majority of illegal aliens are no doubt law-abiding and have avoided public dependence, the pool of unlawful immigrants is so large at over 11 million that even small percentages of lawbreakers can translate into hundreds of thousands of criminal aliens.

    I predict that more violent felonies will be committed in these areas that would help get Trump elected.

    “all Trump voters can and should be held to account” for flocking to a candidate who combines low character with hostility to constitutional freedoms.

    Hello pot, this is kettle.

  • If Trump wins, I hope he stops all federal monies flowing into “sanctuary” cities until they conform to US law.

    The dems will cry like babies.
