Sunday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” Newark, NJ Mayor Ras Baraka (D) said President Donald Trump’s administration’s threat to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities was ” trying to intimidate” them into becoming “fugitive slave catchers.”

Baraka said, “I think that them targeting sanctuary cities is a way for them to tell mayors and other folks around the country: one, that they’re sticking to what, I think, is a very unconstitutional and un-American policy. And trying to intimidate us into being what I’ve called ‘fugitive slave catchers’ that run around and do their bidding in our cities. And if we refuse to do that, then it makes it difficult for them to continue their policy because they don’t have the resources to kind of run down all the undocumented residents locally.”

    I’m sorry, but this mayor is a complete idiot using catch words to avoid upholding a federal law. His words are shameful to those who endured slavery in the U.S. He is cashing in on the past wrongs done against his own ethnicity, demeaning those who were enslaved in the U.S.
    U.S. slaves did not come to the U.S. voluntarily and were not a burden on our tax system or criminal system. Immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally “chose” to commit the crime of entering the U.S. All President Trump is asking for at this time is that when local police detain an illegal immigrant due to their committing even more criminal activity, to simply report that criminal to the Feds and turn them over. There is less work for local authorities, not more.

    Newark has not had a white Mayor since 1962 ( 54years)….this guy is the son of a Radical Black Poet/Playwright….he graduated from Howard University, Annual Tuition/Fees $35K-$40k…I’ll tell you if anyone knows the true ‘Black Experience’ and what it was like to be a fugitive slave over 150 years ago … IT IS THIS GUY …he is 47 years old after all and only missed slavery by 100 + years ….that’s a near miss in geological time frames

  • Walter Flatt says:

    GET RID OF THIS IDIOT, HE ALONG WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA. MAKE HIM ALLOW 10 ILLEGALS TO LIVE IN HIS HOUSE AND HE HAS TO TAKE CARE OF THEM.

    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.

  • thomas givens says:

    Trump is willing to pay you for your services to our country. Name a price for the simple checking of a detainee’s Social Security card and hold them for 24 hrs. This is not a difficult task. You won’t do this because your Liberal thinking
    wants to make your citizens unsafe.

  • justinwachin says:

    What an idiot. At one time government leaders would have been interested in upholding the law. This mindset that illegal aliens are to be coveted and protected is pure stupidity. The fact they are in the country illegally means they are law-breakers and criminals.

    The Feds should go into these sanctuary cities and start rounding up the illegals. Those whose only crime is being in the country illegally should be deported. Those who are charged with a crime should be prosecuted. If found guilty they should be put in a cage and sent to Gitmo. If these felons know they will spend the rest of their lives in a cage like a dog they may decide to go elsewhere.

      I have seen evidence that it was possibly immigrants who hacked the DNC. After all Imran had access to Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s password. He, his brothers, his friend, and his wife allegedly stole computers and other electronic devices, and sold information, possibly to Wikileaks. Maybe if this is the case, Democrats will see the problem with criminal immigrants.

      1. justinwachin says:

        …or the Democrats will hire the hackers to go after President Trump and the Republicans.

        1. William Bilyeu says:

          According to reports, someone tried to hack the Republicans during the campaign, but they failed. Apparently, the RNC had competent internet security, unlike the Democrats. Also, the Department of Homeland Security tried to hack Indiana, Georgia, and Idaho election sites. According to the Indiana attorney general, there were 14,800 attempts. Maybe the Democrats’ internet security firms should contact Indiana or Republicans’ internet security firm to learn about internet security. Or the Democrats should hire loyal employees.

    what an ass

  • Humble Servant says:

    This guy has failed to protect the people of his state and this country. For him to say HE THINKS this is VERY UNCONSTITUTIONAL is a sign of his ignorance of the constitution. President Trump is on the right path to protect this country and the loyal citizens of America. Those who are not truly American are now showing their real colors. It is now you who has a target on your back. How does that feel after so many years under Obama putting this target on our backs. Remember you lost in the last election so this means you now will have to live under this new rule using the old laws, the constitution.

  • PJ says:

    This mayor, Maxine waters, Elijah Cummings…..good grief. ANY elected official that has ANY part of not following federal immigration law, even promoting disobedience of these laws, needs to be brought up on charges of sedition and obstruction of justice. Lock them all up.

    LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER!

  • randy jackson says:

    Another lying thug marching to the beat of the Socialist Party.

  • Leslie Woodhull says:

    OBEY THE LAW OF THE LAND. Sanctuary cities will have ALL of their federal funding cut off. Then we’ll see how fast they buckle-including this complete IDIOT!!

  • outlawdealer says:

    No stupid idiot it only means you are obeying the law and doing the job you were suppose to do. If you already have them in jail you just don’t say “oh you broke several laws but that is ok because you are not suppose to be here anyway so just go and commit more crimes. Have a nice day.” You turn them over to ICE as required by law. If not you loose your funds but I think you should also go to jail.

  • Wilbor Gavin says:

    This idiot mayor has no idea what a slave is. Every time you talk about people of color, to him it sounds good to use the term slave, or racist. Just another liberal, democrat, race monger, fascist. The hell with the American tax payers in his city, race is everything to this idiot.

    1. Olaf Thunderfoot says:

      They are leftists and socialists, they are so not liberal by the original definition of the word.

    2. CharlieSeattle says:

      When slavery was outlawed the chains used to bind them went away.

      The Democrats used welfare to bind them again to support an anti-american socialist agenda.

      Welfare must be changed to Workfare.

      That means 40 hours of labor, not 40 hours of Oprah, to ‘earn’ your benefits and ‘learn’ a trade!

    MORON

    1. CharlieSeattle says:

      …Newark, NJ Mayor Ras Baraka? a MoRoN?? I could not disagree more!

      He knows exactly what he is doing.

      ☭Traitors have an agenda that transcends patriotism, the rule of law and national security.

  • chocopot says:

    Just another Leftist (Democrat) traitor.

    1. David Stewart says:

      Quite a name; Muslim?

      1. chocopot says:

        Without question. And we all know what their agenda is, don’t we?

  • TexRancher says:

    This guy is just another anti-American idiot who cares not for the welfare of the country, just for the additional count of fraudulent voters on their side!

    Bet he wants bank robbers caught (Federal Law) and uses his police to do that so what about those who are violating our safety as Americans?
