New AG Can ‘Flip the Switch’ To Stop Funding Sanctuary Cities, Says Texas Congressman

Immigration EnforcementHOUSTON, Texas – The Trump Administration will be able to “flip the switch” on federal funding to the nation’s top-ten sanctuary jurisdictions on day one, says U.S. Representative John Culberson (R-TX).

Speaking to a group of supporters in Houston this week, Culberson said existing law allows the Trump Administration to not only stop future funding to these jurisdictions, but actually take back past funding. Culberson, who chairs the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science, said he has briefed members of the Trump transition team about the report from the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Inspector General (OIG) that details the defunding process.

Using the “power of the purse” entrusted to Congress, Culberson told the gathered supporters he has been able to “step on the air hose” of the DOJ and force the certification of ten sanctuary jurisdictions as not being in compliance with 8 U.S.C. § 1373, an existing law that requires 100 percent cooperation from local and state jurisdictions in order to receive DOJ grant funding.

The report from the OIG report states:

Section 1373 states in relevant part:
(a) In General. Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, a Federal, State, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict, any· government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status,
lawful or unlawful, of any individual.

    Sanctuary Cities are breaking the law of the land, the Constitution of the United States of America, and I believe these cities politicians should be put in jail.

  • bobnstuff

    If Trump tries to withhold these funds there will be back lash. The power of the federal government isn’t as great as people seem to believe.

    • Rodney Steward

      Shut up bobby, Sanctuary cities are Unconstitutional, and the funds can and will be cut off, PERIOD!! Just stand back and watch!

    Anyone with a hair lick of sense knows that a city that sets itself up to be overflowing with illegal people, who have no rights in America and are not citizens and gives them those rights allowing them to break our immigration laws along with the only ones following the law are citizens, needs to have it’s ass kicked up to it’s Mayors ears and also to be held responsible for the crime and death caused by this absurd action.

    I am sick and tired and through with all this insanity that has been enforced by the most delusional, lying and absurd president this country has ever known. I am sick of watching people like Soros and Michael Moore and Clinton incite riots and getting away with it, we have laws on the books and I await the day we have a Real DOJ and Real AG and Real President who brings it back from the depths of Hell we have lived under for eight Bloody friggin years.

    You not a citizen you don’t get any government benefits, that IS THE LAW.

            Yepper and haven’t even had any eggnog. Christmas no family this year. My daughter and youngest son back in college…..Again……they love to make more money so busy working and going to school and for her she has to take care of a house and children and their games etc all week while hubby off working traveling. So when Holidays come they snuggle down at home. Can’t blame um. Then older son all he does is work since 15 matter of fact all my children worked at 15 so he is most likely working and eating and family time all together.

            So we will have a small Christmas and eat lots of good food we will then share with taking to our neighbors. How bout you kiddo.

          • Tiger

            LOLOL my grandfather said always have a dog under the table so that when you do something like pass gas you look under the table, shove the dog and say: “Damned dog no manners.”

          • Rodney Steward

            LOL, I’ve got that covered, I’ve got 2 fur babies, my Schnaurers, and one does pass gas, BAD, that’s when you jump in and take part in the action!! 🙂 Your grandfather was a wise man!!

          • Tiger

            My Grundpa was a hoot. He was funny. My mother was funny, all my children are funny we are a funny family who when we get together laugh til the tears roll. Got a funny fart story. I raised two boys and leaned early farts are a big part of their being together and horsing around so I just ignored it cause they knew when and where to do it. So my youngest is in Junior High and he lays one during exercise class. Well all that bending and jumping early in the AM and Coed gym ya know. So the teacher acts like he swore and slapped the guy next to him silly. So she sends him to the Principles office who in turn calls me and so I go there and my son sitting in the chair, trying not to laugh cause he saw through this stupidity and the guy says you know what your son did. I said no but I suspect it must be grim news. He said he passed gas in gym class. So after choking back laughter he then says and you know what he said when I asked him what his mother would say. I tried to act surprised knowing it had to be a wammy and he said he said she would say: “Nice One”.

            Lord help me I thought I was going to fall off the chair, break out in a fit of hysterical gawfaws but I calmly said: ” So what is the problem?”. Too which his face turned red as a beet, his nostrils flared and he said he understood now where my son got his attitude. To which I replied: ” Attitude we are talking passing gas and not an assault on someone.” Needless to say my son left the room and me and the big guy had it out. No punishment.

            Your dogs sound great my cats can do some damage with gas. They pick the right moment to, snuggle right up close and let it go. LOOLOLOLOL nothing funnier than passing gas.

          • Rodney Steward

            LOL, seems that you raised your kids well, and don’t care who you are, gas happens and it’s nice to have someone or something to blame it on, but I come from a long line of farters and guess I’ll go out as one!! Glad you straightened out the Principle on passing gas!! I bet you are he$$ when you get mad!! LOLOLOLOL, 🙂

          • Tiger

            Yep farting is a fact of life and show me any person who doesn’t pass gas and I will show you an airhead because gas rises.

          • Rodney Steward

            This is an old radio broadcast and you have to listen all the way it is the farting contest and they use a farting pole it is hillarious. My mother and father and I used to listen to this on a show I think Monty Python played it.

    Is this the NEW meaning of law and order? It is so hard to tell what words really mean nowadays.

    • Tiger

      NO it is not new it is Law and Order that has had cement shoes put on it and thrown into the river by the O administration and somehow is going to be retrieved and put back into place along with our Constitution and everything that spells Republic not Communist.

      • Not_Easily_Impressed

        Bingo! Your answer is correct! May it happen as you have said.
