Sanctuary cities around the nation are dead set on welcoming illegals, no matter what President Donald Trump’s administration does, right?
Okay, well, file that one under “Think Again.”
When Texas took the plunge and vowed to stop sanctuary cities, liberals condemned the entire state as backward and, shockingly, anti-American.
When a very pro-American law was passed last week, leftists again went into full meltdown mode. They’re not interested in protecting our citizens; they’re only interested in protecting everyone ELSE. Including illegals and terrorists.
But now, a lot of these sanctuary city leaders are having second thoughts when their high-horse principles are put to the test.
Some are finding their funding yanked, and are caving to Trump’s demand to take back their sanctuary labels on their own.
Others are finding themselves in the crosshairs of Republican governors and Republican-led communities that are now feeling emboldened by the new tough talk from the Trump administration, and have been exerting considerable pressures on these sanctuary cities to pull in the welcome mat voluntarily.
It seems to be working.
“As the risk to their income becomes real, we’re discovering just how superficial the sanctuary city movement is,” Red State wrote.
“Several towns, cities and counties around the nation are caving to President Trump’s threat to pull funding, and abandoning their ‘sanctuary’ pledges to shield illegal immigrants from federal authorities.
Other communities that have dropped policies of shielding illegal immigrant suspects from Immigration and Customs Enforcement include Miami-Dade and Dayton, are Saratoga, N.Y., Finney County, Kan., and Bedford, Penn., according to The Center for Immigration Studies, which keeps a list of sanctuary communities.
My, my isn’t that just the most interesting thing you’ve heard in a while?
Sanctuary cities, the proud point-tos for Democrats and leftists leaning government servants the nation over, are now suddenly the stuff of whispers. Why?”
Sure, sanctuary cities are important to the left. But so is money. And on the list of priorities of things Democrats want to keep, Money comes a good slot or two above Sanctuary Cities.
They may not even care about the hundreds DYING at the hands of illegal aliens. No, they just want to make sure they get their money.
This may run counter to everything liberals stand for (supposedly) but by now, we all know hypocrisy is at the core of the leftist party.
And now that the new administration is threatening to take away their precious government funding, without which many of these dead broke sanctuary loving cities can’t survive, Democrats are balking.
Guess Trump’s found the magic elixir.
