Trump AG targets LA over immigration: You better not be a ‘sanctuary city’ or no fed grants for you

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday local jurisdictions seeking U.S. Department of Justice grants must first demonstrate they are not sanctuary cities — a threat that could potentially apply to Los Angeles and other local municipalities.

Sessions said jurisdictions must prove they are in compliance with Section 1373 of U.S. Code Title 8, which requires notification of federal officials about the immigration status of people in local custody. The policy was issued under the Barack Obama administration in 2016, but was not enforced.

“The American people know that when cities and states refuse to help enforce immigration laws, our nation is less safe,” Sessions said.

Sessions noted that the Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs and Community Oriented Policing Services expect to issue about $4.1 billion in grants during the current fiscal year. Sessions’ comments were in line with an executive order issued by President Donald Trump in January that threatened to cut off federal funding to sanctuary cities.

    O.K. Make California on the West coast and Virginia on the East coast Sanctuary states and not give them ANY federal monies so that their citizens would have to finance their expenses.I predict that wouldn’t last six months before they would be so crime ridden they’ll be begging for help.

    Words are meaningless, it MUST be backed up with ACTIONS! Let us wait to see how they proceed when these cities balk. We are talking only those who are incarcerated, at least for now. Things will get sticky if we enforce against parents whose children are citizens, not sure how to deal with that issue. I’m thinking that as long as the parents are hard working and willing to pay taxes and become Americans, we should be lenient. However, those who have a criminal record, or are not working, they are obviously a bad influence on their own children, who will grow to be angry and dependent on handouts. Certainly don’t need more begging crybabies in this Country, we have enough of our own! America used to be selective about who we allowed into our Nation! We need a hundred Ellis Islands….

    there once was a healthy township outskirt of salt lake city named kerns.salt lake was turned into a sanctuary city by a mayor named rocky anderson in the late 90s..shaun hannity debated him way back when shaun was getting started about illegal aliens and there effect on the infrastructure of the community.kerns is now a third world..how many townships in outskirt towns of america have 10 cars per house hold.multi families in one house.children learning spanish instead of english.gang graffiti on fences .getting subsidized on top of it all..the two biggest lies ever told is that the people with power represent people without power..and that nationalism is evil..and multiculturalism works just great..

    YOU AND THIS GOVERNMENT 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.

      You are spot on but most people will foolishly tell you it can’t happen in the USA. Human nature hasn’t changed since Hitler tried it. Our forefathers knew that lust for power destroyed nations then and it would in the future. Obummer is behind all this crap. Wise up ! Trump is God intervening to stop the destruction of our country. God bless the USA.

  • Steve Gross

    I want to see a few liberal mayors thrown in jail. That will make them rethink their asinine sanctuary cities crap. Pray for reason in a very confused nation.
    How about 6 months in prison for a few mayors. Do you think that will get their attention?

    • C William Hanscom

      Nope !! But maybe 10 years will. They would lose the free ride at our expense and all bennifits.

  • Rick D.

    Go for it, Sen. Sessions!! There’s only one thing that will get their attention and hopefully their cooperation……hit ’em where it hurts—in the pocketbook!!

  • Estoban

    Authorities of sanctuary enclaves should be charged as accessories to any and all crimes committed by the illegal aliens they protect.

  • Wingedgodd3ss

    Yay! Remove those funds!!!

  • JC

    Let’s do a little more—let’s charge the local officials with breaking the law and remove them from office and give them some jail time—i really think that would eliminate sanctuary cities–states and counties

    Now is the hour for all good men to come to the aid of their country, Sessions a good man and our laws are good, bad men don’t follow them so take um to the woodshed see how they cry when they are felons and facing court and jail time.

    Just do it. Start with Mayor Blah Blah of NY

    • C William Hanscom

      Our the expresident Obama and,his friend in crime, Hillary. SAY HELLO TO GITMO.

    This had better be one of the campaign promises that are kept, now! It seems there is a lot of threats, to do so, yet no withholding of moneys. There is no other reason, for illegals to be here, then to vote for democrats. Out of our country!!! NOW!!!

  • Oldawg70

    Terminate their subsidies, then file criminal charges for the officials that harbor the illegals! Although most in California function on Queer Logic there are still many of us that maintain a moral patriotic standard!

      Allegiance bound officials and judges in Los Angeles ARE IN REBELLION AGAINST THE USA AND CONSTITUTION! IT’S THAT SIMPLE!!! AIDING AND COMFORTING ENEMIES OF THE CONSTITUTION PLUS BETRAYAL OF ALLEGIANCE are highest US CRIMES! Obviously, every 2nd oath bound citizen is allegiance bound to defend against LA without any reservation or purpose of evasion!

      Preamble to the Constitution: words “provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty TO OURSELVES AND OUR POSTERITY”, DOESNOT INCLUDE FOREIGN NATIONS OR ALIENS!!! Defend means STOP IT IMMEDIATELY and remove the threat by arrest and jail by whatever forces are necessary!

      Due Process begins with Supreme Law Amendment 14 Section 1 “… No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”, and Section 3 “No person shall… hold any office… having previously taken an oath… …(who) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”, with physically removing any offender from office and locking them up to prevent further damages until trial. That includes RECOVERING all funds EXPROPRIATED with treble damages regarding Amendment 14 Section 4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…” by impounding all wealth and assets of offenders who have engaged in extending citizen benefits to aliens, criminals, and those engaged in rebellion! NO LAW USURPS THOSE WORDS OF SUPREME LAW!
      Those words are indelibly reinforced by Article 6, “SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND … ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY NOTWITHSTANDING… AND ALL EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL OFFICERS, BOTH OF THE US AND SEVERAL STATES SHALL BE BOUND BY “ALLEGIANCE”… which is the 2nd oath “…defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic… bear true faith and allegiance… without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion… will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office…”, unequivocally and true to each word, by Webster’s “old” definitions.

      Cutting off funds explodes progressive goals of chaos and fighting within. Enforcing CITIZENS’ SUPREME LAW IN EVERY STATE (as stated), with retribution against evil, will end the US death spiral! We can save freedom!

      • Oldawg70

        Agree 100%…just don’t have much faith that any of these immoral, UnAmerican, Traitorous, Scumbags will ever be held accountable!
