Number of sanctuary cities nears 500

by
March 15, 2017

DeportationNearly 500 jurisdictions are now sanctuary cities, according to a group that’s tracked the issue for more than a decade, and who said there’s been a massive surge in the number of places trying to thwart federal immigration agents since President Trump’s election.

The Ohio Jobs & Justice Political Action Committee has added more than three dozen new cities and counties to its list in 2017 alone, as jurisdictions rush to try to shield illegal immigrants from what they expect to be a new push for deportations under Mr. Trump.

“More will be coming,” said Steve Salvi, founder of OJJ. “A lot of communities now, there’s resolutions in the works and citizens groups encouraging city councils to pass them.”

Perhaps just as surprising, though, are the four cities OJJ has removed from its list or is poised to remove, once it gets final confirmation of cooperation with Homeland Security officials. Two of those are in Alaska, while the other two are Dayton, Ohio, and Miami, Florida.

    The solution is very simple: issue federal arrest warrants for every mayor and the entire city council of any city that has declared itself a sanctuary city. Lock them up and throw away the key.

  • Warren

    Man !! We are saving more Billions every day and the Liberals are going to be reaching into their own pocket for once.

  • Marilynn Reeves

    Want be happy until the number is 0.

  • Walter Flatt

    WHAT DO YOU BET THAT ALL HAVE DEMOCRAT MAYORS, ALSO THAT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT DO NOT GO ALONG WITH THEIR THINKING. I BELIEVE MY PARTY ALONG WITH THE NEWS MEDIA IS TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA.

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    • Warren

      Why??? Is your Party still Democrat???

  • Rodzzz

    Those mayors should be handcuffed and thrown in jail.

  • ZACAL

    It’s past time for the Democrats and several Rino’s to cease acting as adversary’s to the people in our country and govern as responsible elected representatives. For these “adversary’s” to think they have an elected responsibility to arrogantly disagree in the most mean spirited way they can act out is playing into the minds of our worst enemy’s. We also have courts and private organizations such as the ACLU literally taking over the lawful responsibilities of the President of the United States. The Democratic and Rino adversary’s and their pardners, the media are marching towards the ruination of the country. Even several of our school systems and most colleges and Universities have taken on the role as adversary to the country. A scary number of cities have become adversary by declaring these cities a sanctuary city. It keeps getting uglier everyday, as our Constitution begins to disappear like a like a galaxy in the sky. People better wake to hell up, political party’s has become bitter enemy’s toward each other with total disregard for the Constitution. Draining the “swamp” is difficult because the alligators are much larger than previously thought. It isn’t complicated to see what the problem is.

    First of all, I don’t believe that these are citizens groups rallying for this. Corporations may be funding these groups to make it look that way. Illegal immigration does not benefit citizens. Quite the contrary, it takes away jobs from them. A corporation benefits because it pays an illegal less, provides no benefits, & can replace the illegal with another one if he clamors for more pay or whatever. They can’t pull that BS with an informed American citizen worker. This is just contrived media fodder for the lame brains.

  • dmttbt

    How did we become a people who are willing to settle for welfare rather than have a job that is now done by immigrants. You can forget what the democrat party and the republican party say they are because they are two groups who are more likely to lie than any group I can think of. You wouldn’t or shouldn’t expect them to come out and advertise that they are crooks and that they care only about themselves and their interests.
    It should be swift and automatic that no tax payer money be paid to a sanctuary city. Those signs saying we are all immigrants could just as easily say that they are idiots. They only believe in the government when it is handing them bad checks.

  • Richard Schwartz

    Just think of the savings the government will have !!!!!!! May be a business opportunity for the mafia?

  • Sweet willy

    Well, when that first federal check for ,hmm, $20Mil don’t show up, the winter weather destruction shows up, the roads continue to crumble. The city’s and states that are sanctuary places, will have to raise local taxes to compete for the loss of federal tax dollars, which last I checked was paid mostly by the rich and corporate interests. Aaahhh, MORE taxes imposed by the local governments. But they have principles. I used to go to Mexico, always a wild ride on crumbly rodeway. I will say when those in sanctuary places realize they have become Mexico North, perhaps they will riot and follow Lynch’s commentary. The democraps have become the enemy within and traitors to
    the USA, and the most active supporters charged with sedition. The guilt is apparent and incarceration is probable.

  • albany le

    No federal funding for any of these cities. No public funds either and each city should be fined a thousand dollars a day until the stop these in-American practices ..

  • CBUJAN

    All politicians of sanctuary cities should be brought up on charges for failing to up hold the constitution. They all took a oath to obey the laws of the land and they are failing to do so. Jail is where they belong.

    • Reasoned thinker

      CBUJAN — I like this idea too (see reply to “Tiger” above). The only thing I’d add to your idea is that the DOJ should take on only one or two cities at a time. That approach, in my opinion, would serve two purposes: (1) It would limit the cost exposure to the DOJ (i.e., “DOJ’s cost of prosecution), if only one or two cities . . . and the politicians within . . . were sued initially, while at the same time forcing on a given city (and its taxpayers) MAXIMUM pain, by forcing that city to foot the entire expense for the city’s elected officials’ stupidity . . . and (2) it would terrify other cities, whose officials have ALSO demonstrated similar stupidity, from suffering a similar “fate” at a future date. In essence, the idea should be to humiliate the cities involved. Just some added thoughts.

      • CBUJAN

        Makes since.

  • Askjrsk

    This will help the federal budget deficit. No federal funding to these sanctuary cities !

  • Tiger

    I suppose it might be time for President Trump, to do what he should have done and put one of these Mayors up on charges for breaking our Federal Immigration laws related to harboring, aiding and giving jobs to illegals knowingly. I also suppose it might be time for some ending of the benefit programs to these people that sucks out the benefits of legal American citizens.

    I am ready to see some harsh and sever punishment dealt out to these Mayors etc.

    • Nancy D

      The right thing to do but the AG isn’t bringing any charges against the judge who let an illegal escape either.

      • Tiger

        Sad that. So she gets away with what you and I would go to jail for.

    • Askjrsk

      Yes agree totally

    • Reasoned thinker

      Tiger — I like your idea(s), as you’ve expressed (above).

      • Tiger

        Thank you and believe me I email him daily.

    • Andrew

      I totally agree with you Tiger. It’s time to stop wasting hard working taxpayers money for sanctuary cities and illegals.

      • Tiger

        Hi Andrew just wish he would do it. Guess he is letting the Governors take care of them and I believe I read where no federal dollars going to Sanctuary cities anymore.

        • Andrew

          Thanks for your response Tiger. How you and your loved ones have been doing?

          • Tiger

            Good Andrew, things in my life have changed drastically since moving to the rural part of Florida, some good, some bad. I miss my gym and sidewalks and paved streets. All my children doing great, two back in college for another degree. But sensible degrees, they can advance and get better jobs. Accounting for my daughter and Technology for my youngest son. My oldest son an Expert Mechanic teaching Mechanics the ropes and overseeing.

          • Andrew

            Fantastic! I’m very happy to know that your children have been doing great. I believe you probably miss your former job. I certainly miss mine following my retirement in 2003, after serving the U. S. Government for some 30 years here at home and numerous countries around the world. I believe you feel much better now that the former ACORN community organizer is gone. Again, I wish you and your family the very best. Please take care of yourself.

          • Tiger

            I do miss my former job very much but then all things come to an end. We have to find the best in everything that we do and move forward. Actually since coming home form the war I have been involved in politics and spreading the truth about Islam everywhere I can.

            So happy to hear all is well with you also. I feel high on life since that evil thing is out of the WH and everyday that Trump brings down all he did I feel even better.

            Best to you and yours also.

          • Andrew

            Many thanks Tiger.

  • ZACAL

    Taking the tax money from these law violating cities will more than pay for the wall.

  • cathylovesyou

    Lets go back and what we now have is what the Democratic Socialist Party has done to our country. I keeps going what is wrong with these fools? All they what is a plastic trophy stating “Most improved” We must dismiss liberals in the Midwest, and South. As to the coast they are foreign countries, so if only the Republicans would toughen up rather than becoming mild toast we wouldn’t have all this mamsie pamsie garbage infesting our children and schools with Communist Teachers.

  • Ramon1710 .

    More honest representation of these invaders and their attitude if their signs read, “We’re All Criminals” and “Criminals Make America Greater.”

  • Richard Nicoletti

    That’s 500 more cities who get no government financial support. Suffer.

    • kbfallon

      Its time to turn the HEAT up on them….no funds for anything. Let the local citizens foot the bills for educating them and pay for their own roads and infrastructure of all kinds. Lets see how they like it then.
