Trump budget would force sanctuary cities to comply with immigration laws

A day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued guidance that narrowly defined a “sanctuary city,” the Justice Department is attempting to broaden its authority to compel such jurisdictions to cooperate with immigration authorities.

A provision included in the Justice Department’s proposed fiscal 2018 budget seeks to update a portion of federal law, U.S.C. 1373, which bans local governments from enacting policies that restrict or prohibit communications with federal immigration authorities “regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.”

The proposed changes would require law enforcement to comply with federal immigration detainers — requests that inmates be held in custody for up to 48 hours beyond their scheduled release from jail in order to give federal immigration authorities time retrieve them.

The Justice Department and Homeland Security are seeking the change “to expand the scope to prevent state and local government officials from prohibiting or restricting any government law enforcement entity or official from complying with a lawful civil immigration detainer request,” according to the budget proposal.

    Since when do we give criminals immunity from prosecution or deportation? If
    they are in this country illegally they are not innocent of breaking a law. What other country gives immunity to illegal immigrants. Our Constitution DOES NOT give immunity to anyone.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    There is a weak and laughable effort by AG Sessions to “defund??” sanctuary cities for failing to help ICE deport illegal aliens.

    That is akin to merely stopping welfare checks for a thief that broke into your home and leaving him there!

    Come on AG Sessions, ……that is sooooo lame!!

    You can arrest all the treasonous sanctuary city fathers now!

    …………..Why? because it is the law! You do not need another law!

    The Law Against Hiring or Harboring Illegal Aliens

    fairus.org/issue/the-law-against-hiring-or-harboring-illegal-aliens

    8 U.S. Code § 1324a – Unlawful employment of aliens

    law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1324a

    The following is an overview of federal law on hiring and harboring illegal aliens. It is not a substitute for professional legal counsel in specific situations.

    Summary

    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he:

    assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment, encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

    Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.

    Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.

    >> Even AG Sessions should know this! So W T F is he doing?

    Amazing how Liberals believe that you can ignore laws you find inconvenient. Hate guns, ignore the 2nd Amendment. Love illegals (guaranteed voting block), ignore immigrations laws. Don’t believe in the Defense of Marriage Act or Stolen Valor Act, simply ignore them, sign executive orders to remove them and refuse to defend them in court At the same time they demand absolute obedience and reverence to laws they agree with. DO NOT dare to ignore any laws regarding abortion, gay marriage or restriction of free speech, unless it is Conservative because then it’s okay. And I thought ALL politicians took an oath to “support and defend” the Constitution and all the laws of the US.

  • Pete says:

    At some point in the past (the date and circumstance is debatable) the democrat party elite made a decision to coddle the non citizen in hopes that that coddling would cause that non citizen to illegally cast a vote for the democrat party,
    As evidenced by a California law suit, by a democratic candidate, over suspected voter fraud, it appears to be a factor in some locations.
    The politically elite do not really give a tinkers dam about any difficulty the illegal individual encounters. Every thing is lovely so long as the illegal remains in the US and cast a for a democrat.

    1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      Pete – You forgot about a Virginia campaign worker that registered dead people to vote for president and got caught when a judge noticed his deceased father had been registered to vote in the 2016 election. That just may have happened in other Democratically controlled states like California, too.

  • Jose says:

    Whenever ILLEGAL INVADERS multiple out of control by having anchor bestards just so they can be citizens and in turn multiple over and over until they are the majority. Once that occurs, they take over a city, county, state and make laws the ONLY benefits their ILLEGAL INVADER family. Case in point; california where ILLEGAL INVADERS/ANCHOR BESTARDS own the cities, counties and the state to include the governor and most of the politicians. That is why they have “sanctuary cities”.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTIO 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL FORIEGN PEOPLE THAT GOES AGAINST OUR LAWS, THIS MEAN ALL MUSLIMS. WE DO NOT NEED MORE LAWS, JUST ENFORCE THE ONES ALREADY PASSED.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT I AM AN AMERICAN FIRST, PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE BELOW.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    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 ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    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,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

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

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    There’s no change for sanctuary cities in the phrasing, ‘complying with a lawful civil immigration detainer request’. In the unlikely event that ordinary citizens detained by police on any matter come to the attention of immigration officials as illegal entrants, police upon notification would certainly detain them for federal agents. I doubt local officials will ever notify the feds about anyone, and records of detentions are probably not shared between local and federal levels. So detainees are generally safe from whatever the framers of the Budget language intended. Nice try, Donald, but it’s the same effect as your ‘Muslim ban’ Executive Orders–nice language, no effect on anybody. And its just a budget document so far, nothing legal to follow.

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        Your alarm may be correct but for a different reason than you think. My take is that those spinning this new ‘attack’ on sanctuary cities

    3. NM Leon says:

      I’ve asked before, but you never answered. Do you practice to appear so ignorant or does it come naturally?

      Records of detentions are ALWAYS shared with the Feds…it happens automatically when they “run” the perp’s prints.

      Step 1. Local PD arrests John Doe for whatever.

      Step 2. Local PD sends John Doe’s prints to state and fed databases for identification.

      Step 3. Feds flag John Doe’s prints as belonging to an illegal, Jose Ruiz, wanted for deportation.

      Step 4. Feds issue an ICE detainer for Jose Ruiz aka John Doe and inform local PD of same, asking that they be notified of Jose’s release date in advance so that they can take him into custody.

      Step 5. Local PD ignores lawful detainer and lets Jose go free without notifying ICE.

      City or town of local PD has made itself a “sanctuary”.

      Solution? Withhold DOJ law enforcement grants from those sanctuary cities.

      You are an absolute idiot.

    THE demoRATS and muslims r the WAR on American,long live President Trump! GOD bless the United States Of American!LIBERALISM Is It Mental Illness or Demonic Oppression?

    1. CharlieSeattle says:

      Yes, yes and yes.

  • mad max says:

    God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

    God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between “man and woman within marriage”. LIBERALISM Is It Mental Illness or Demonic Oppression?

  • Askjrsk says:

    Laws are on the books. Criminal actions of OBAMA disregarded our laws. San Francisco and California, are sanctuary city and state respectively. Nancy Pelosi owns Starkist canneries. Drug running, money laundering and illegal alien running through this cannery operation puts big money in her pocket and her mafia connections pockets. Also enriches Maxine Waters. They don’t care about constituents, but making themselves rich through control and manipulation of others.

  • podunk1 says:

    The preamble to the Constitution clearly states, “…secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Because “To ourselves” and “for the USA” establishes the preface for Supreme law and all other law “thereunder”, aliens have no right to exist within the USA, thus no right to any citizen benefits within or by the USA, which includes the several states… by Supreme Constitution Law.

    Further, any 2nd oath allegiance bound official or judge who advocates against the Constitution by speech or press (Insurrection), or acts against it by deed (rebellion), aids or comforts enemy acts against it… is, by Webster definitions of words within the Constitution, engaged in treason (the highest US crime)! Treason is defined in Article 3-3 and Amendment 14-3!

    Legislative, judicial, and public media records are overflowing with endless evidence of HIGHLY ORGANIZED TREASON! 14-3 automatically removes ANY traitor from ANY US office “……(who) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”! Because Article 6 “ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY (IS) NOTWITHSTANDING” applies without exception to EVERY JUDGE and OFFICIAL, isn’t it time to start throwing traitors out of office and into jail where they belong? “Defend … without any reservation or purpose of evasion…” is the opposite of whining and aiding enemies of freedom! Tell a judge to go to hell in a court room and you go to jail! Let a judge break the Constitution, and Soros and government will spend millions defending the traitor!

    Well UNdocumented and UNafraids YOU’D BETTER LEAVE VOLUNTARILY. It’s about DAMN TIME!!! No more Kate Steinleys!!! MAKE CHICAGO COMPLY!!! MAKE THAT LOSER RAHM EMANUEL EAT HIS DAMN WORDS!!! NO MORE FORCED POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!! GET RID OF EVERY TRACE THAT OBAMINATION WAS EVER PRESIDENT!! NO “LEGACY” LEFT FOR HIM!!!

  • Humble Servant says:

    It is a shame that we need to make laws for something that should be common sense for the protection of Americans at home. Our society has degraded so much under the Democrat rule and they have created a whole millennial population that thinks this type of life style is OK. We have been a Christian nation since the beginning and the first thing the Democrats have done is take Christianity out of our country. This has worked real well for us, hasn’t it.

    The sooner we drain the swamp the sooner we can get back to a more civil and compassionate people the way it was meant to be.

    THE ACEHOLE ILLEGALS AND THE STATES ARE BREAKING federal law ;if you or I did this we would be under the jail, guess now criminals have all the rights we have none; sovereignty protects a nation, open borders creates another “MANCHESTER”, guess lib/fascists enjoy killing children.

    Good news!! Now we’ll see what these left-leaning supporters who harbor illegal immigrants will do when their funds are cut off!! I think “resistance” will quickly change to “compliance”. As they say, “Money talks & Bull-s*** walks”.
