It begins: Trump DOJ goes after sanctuary cities/states

Part of presidential candidate Donald Trump’s platform on illegal immigration includes his opposition to sanctuary jurisdictions (cities, counties and states), on which he has not wavered.

Her name is Kate Steinle


President Trump’s most recent statement on that subject was his weekly address on December 9, 2017. Referring to a San Francisco jury’s acquittal of the illegal alien killer of Kate Steinle, President Trump said:

“Kate’s death is a tragedy that was entirely preventable. She was shot by an illegal alien and a 7-time convicted felon who had been deported five times – but he was free to harm an innocent American because our leaders refused to protect our border, and because San Francisco is a Sanctuary City. In Sanctuary States and Cities, innocent Americans are at the mercy of criminal aliens because state and local officials defy federal authorities and obstruct the enforcement of our immigration laws….
Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crack down on Sanctuary Cities – now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government.”

Did you know that there is a bill in Congress, H.R. 3003 – No Sanctuary for Criminal Acts, which was introduced by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) with 15 co-sponsors, none of whom of course is a Democrat.
H.R. 3003 would restrict the eligibility of sanctuary states or localities to receive certain DOJ or DHS grants. Instead, those grant funds would be reallocated to States and localities that comply with Federal law. H.R. 3003 would also provide for more robust detention of criminal aliens.
H.R. 3003 was introduced on June 22, 2017. A week later, on June 29, 2017, the Republican-majority House of Representatives passed the bill 228-195 without amendment. More than half a year ago, on July 10, 2017, the bill was received in the Senate, where it has languished since. If passed, President Trump will sign the bill into law.
Without the support of Congress (H.R. 3003), the Trump Administration is going it alone. But everything must be done carefully, and in accordance to law and due process.
In a press release yesterday, January 24, 2018, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a letter has been sent to 23 “sanctuary” jurisdictions.
The DOJ had previously contacted the 23 jurisdictions, raising “concerns about laws, policies, or practices that may violate 8 U.S.C. 1373, a federal statute that promotes information sharing related to immigration enforcement and with which compliance is a condition of FY2016 and FY2017 Byrne JAG [grant] awards.” It is that information sharing that sanctuary jurisdictions precisely refuse.
In its January 24, 2018 letter to the 23 jurisdictions, the DOJ:

  • Demands the production of documents that could show whether each jurisdiction is unlawfully restricting information sharing by its law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities.
  • States that recipient jurisdictions that fail to respond, fail to respond completely, or fail to respond in a timely manner will be subject to a Department of Justice subpoena.
  • States that the jurisdictions’ failure to comply with federal statute 8 U.S.C. 1373 (on immigration enforcement information sharing) could result in the Justice Department seeking the return of FY2016 grants, requiring additional conditions for receipt of any FY2017 Byrne JAG funding, and/or jurisdictions being deemed ineligible to receive FY2017 Byrne JAG funding.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said:

“I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk. Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law. We have seen too many examples of the threat to public safety represented by jurisdictions that actively thwart the federal government’s immigration enforcement—enough is enough.”

Below are the 23 jurisdictions, all Demonrat-infested:

  1. Chicago, Illinois
  2. Cook County, Illinois
  3. New York City, New York
  4. State of California
  5. Albany, New York
  6. Berkeley, California
  7. Bernalillo County, New Mexico
  8. Burlington, Vermont
  9. City and County of Denver, Colorado
  10. Fremont, California
  11. Jackson, Mississippi
  12. King County, Washington
  13. Lawrence, Massachusetts
  14. City of Los Angeles, California
  15. Louisville Metro, Kentucky
  16. Monterey County, California
  17. Sacramento County, California
  18. City and County of San Francisco, California
  19. Sonoma County, California
  20. Watsonville, California
  21. West Palm Beach, Florida
  22. State of Illinois
  23. State of Oregon.

The cities and states have defied Trump from the beginning without federal money they will again go after taxpayers for more taxes. This also needs to be stopped. It is only about the Democratic vote. They care less about the people! NWO is its name. They don’t understand Satan is controlling them and after Satan has control they will be killed just they want us killed.

The cities and states have NOT defied Trump—– —they have defied FEDERAL LAW–NO MATTER WHO is POTUS, right or left…..The duties of the Executive Branch (the POTUS) of our government as written into the Constitution and demands that he/she ENFORCE the laws written in the Constitution, AND the laws sent up to him/her by the legislative branch (House of Representatives and the Senate) and signed into law in this land. ALL IMMIGRATION LAWS MUST be written by the US Congress and signed into law by the President…….and whether you like it or not…we DO HAVE immigration laws in place due… Read more »

They do defy Trump. Oreo set new rules and regulations against the constitution. Trump is working to clean it up. Oreo and ALL lib dems are interested in NWO to be set in place and truly care nothing about the people. If the did care we wouldn’t be in this mess. For the most part it started with Bush,Sr.

See,the thing is,if Obongo throws down an EO to accomplish DACA,HE defies the Constitution. The same goes with any States,Counties or Cities that decide to “officially” declare themselves as sanctuaries. Regardless who happens to be President,it’s the Constitution that gets wronged by these “laws”.

I’d say we’re being played again since the birth-rate displacement scenario is already irreversible, and ironically it’s mainly thanks to the Republicans who had total control of the government under the moron Dubya as well. We’d better wake up and realize that what comes out of the mouths of 95% of elected Republicans is lying rhetoric and public theater designed to distract us from the billionaire donors pulling their strings, who it turns out are the main donors of the Dems as well, starting with the cabal at Goldman Sachs. Everywhere it seems where I now live and where I… Read more »

You better get a hell of a tan and start to practice your accent (middle eastern or Spanish), then you’ll get oodles of stolen tax payer dollars. This is just another plank of the Zionist-freemason plan to destroy the USA and Europe and replace the population with non thinking low mental functioning “progressive” immigrants. It’s going on all over the place. Just read the deed transfers and you’ll see all sorts of middle eastern and Asian names. The Zionist freemasons are playing us against them, like they’ve done for centuries. They told the Bushes to bomb their countries flat, murder… Read more »

You’ve been listening to to much fake news. The majority of corruption is from lib dems. Bush, Sr, a Republican kicked off the already corrupt to a higher level on up to Oreo. You don’t do much research do you? Try it some time, it will amaze you.

isn’t that amazing?
if it were the demonrats, they would be skirting laws Left and Right
all of these crooked politicians/legislators should be jailed and properties/assets confiscated.

God Bless You. we are on the same wavelength . . . .”democrats, they would be skirting laws Left and Right; all of these crooked politicians/legislators should be jailed and properties/assets confiscated.” I cold not agree more with that, particularly the confiscation of “properties/assets confiscated,” after all it was the monies and deals they were able to make as US Congressmen/women that have allowed them to gain the tremendous wealth they now have. Just look at Maxine Watters, I believe that she lives in a 4 million dollar house, yet her yearly salary is under… Read more »

DCG . . . . We can only hope that the “demorats’ feelings to be challenged by the law,” will only increase and become an every day occurrence in Trump’s efforts to clean up the swamp. I am dying to know, of those listed in the 9,000 sealed indictments . . . what percentage are liberals? I should imagine that they would outnumber conservative individuals. I continue to say . . . . let the circus begin !!!

President Trump can be honestly criticized, and Dr. Henry Makow has done so. The man is not perfect and we all know it: No human being is. But I Thank God Almighty the man has been elected, and he is delivering on his promises, making good on them, despite his unfortunate pick of a sleep-walking Attorney General. This being said, it is HIGH TIME that DOJ actually GO AFTER the leaders of these “sanctuary cities” and “sanctuary states,” and actually ARREST the mayors, and yes—GOVERNORS—of them. Jerry Brown of California is not a “non-conformist” or someone who “marches to the… Read more »

steven . . . . Wow! I am in total agreement with you. When the arrests come . . . they should go after Jerry Brown of California, and next on the list should be Governor (I cannot think of her first name, that’s how important she is in my life) Brown of Oregon. I was rather disappointed that Oregon was 23rd on the list of entities to get a letter from the DOJ. But at least these communists were not left out altogether. I don’t care if they squeeze every bit of Federal monies out of this state (Oregon)… Read more »

Stevenbroiles, it is all about getting the Democratic vote. Dems don’t care about the people, they use them to get their way then throw them away like garbage.

Finally! I hope he gets rid of the whole concept.
Sanctuary city is code for “Sleeper cell”.
Trump needs to stop all this influx of “refugees” from the muslim nations is what he needs to do. Look at what is going on in Europe, it’s the slow planned extinction of first world countries.

chemtrailssuck . . . . You nailed that perfectly! I certainly do agree that the term “Sanctuary City” should be considered synonymous with “sleeper cell.” It’s that communistic line that propels these folks in the goofy things that they do.

An executive order wouldn’t cut it constitutionally. Unenforceable. The sanctions must be imposed by CONGRESS.

Jim . . . . I certainly think you are correct in that thinking. This leaves me wondering if there are enough votes to pass such legislation?

When a bill, such as H.R. 3003, is passed in the House of Representatives and sent to the Senate for consideration, does it retain its H.B. number or does it get a new S.B. number? If I contact my Senators to urge passage of this bill in the Senate, do I refer to H.B. 3003 or a new S.B. number?

Did it get voted on and passed in the house? According to this site, it might get a different name and bill number in the senate or the house depending on which one it came from: https://www.carper.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/how-a-bill-becomes-a-law#613AA1DB-29A1-4D9C-9CF8-D75A42CE1B1D

I’d like to see a correlation of the cities, counties, and states they’re going after, with those hiring the most illegals to do their low-end labor. I’d think it would be easier to go after the employers of such illegals? At least it would provide another avenue of attack.

Loss of grants is just not enough. The heads of all the jurisdictions listed should be fined for non-compliance on a daily basis, and arrested after 30 days.

I hope they hit these cities and hit the, hard. Denver just had a police officer killed, they got one of the guys and in the background you could hear someone saying, two Hispanics are on the run. Denver should be so proud.
