Showdown looms between Trump administration, sanctuary cities

As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office, a major showdown looms between his administration and cities across the country over one of his hallmark campaign issues: illegal immigration.

At the Southern border, agents are on pace to apprehend almost 600,000 illegal immigrants, the highest number in eight years. The surge is coming largely from Central American migrants, far outpacing those from Mexico.

“They’re mobilizing because they don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but know today they can cross,” said Chris Cabrera, of the National Border Patrol Council.

Many illegal immigrants from Central America indeed have been motivated to make the trek after word traveled under the Obama administration that some could request asylum, claiming a “credible fear” of persecution should they return home.

But another driver is the knowledge that certain major cities offer “sanctuary” protections from deportation. Those same cities are now gearing up to fight on their illegal immigrant residents’ behalf against the incoming president.

    Here is what will happen, Trump will cut funding to the sanctuary cities, the cities will take money from the sick and elderly and give it to the illegals. Then they will tell the world Trump is starving the sick/elderly to death. Trump

    1. Danny Reagan says:

      For every dollar spent on illegals, Trump must cut that amount out of their money. This must be done until the cities decide to follow the law. Or he will need to issue arrest warrants for the mayors and anyone who deliberately breaks the law.

    2. John Wirts says:

      Tell all sick and elderly, that federal government will provide aid outside the sanctuary. Move all Federal services outside the sanctuary. When the federal government moves out and supplies services only outside sanctuary. They will soon be bankrupt, and probably be ghost towns.

  • Tiger says:

    Sanctuary cities are an oxymoron, sanctuary for those who are breaking our laws but no sanctuary for citizens who must follow the laws. Close them down, cut them off form Federal funds and let them choke.

    1. gvette says:

      I see it coming, Tiger.

      1. Tiger says:

        On the way my friend, around the canyon can hear the stampede coming. The ground shakes and the movement begins.

        1. gvette says:

          I believe Trump will shut them down. I don’t know how much you’re read about him, but he only sleeps about 5 hours a night. He’s constantly doing something. This may be the likes of something Washington has never seen before.

          1. Tiger says:

            Merry Christmas here is a site if you put in any address you will see the residence out the window. I put in the home I grew up in and brought back so many good memories.


  • CCblogging says:

    Mark my words, President Trump is going to kick their butts hard.

  • Climax says:

    Several posters have said to cut off all federal funding, which can be done, until the State, County, City comes into compliance with current Federal Laws. I totally agree with that. Legal immigration is allowed and under federal law a proves exists to bring in people who have applied for, been investigated, and provides documentation to enter and stay in the USA. California is a good example of what will happen if this illegal immigration is allowed to continue, it is broke, increasing in crime, decreasing in quality job availability, and run by liberal individuals who are rich and only think about how many votes it will take to stay in office. How this all got started I will never know but it is like a cancer and spreads rapidly unit stopped. We are not the nursery for the depressed world refugees and frankly cannot afford it. If the representatives of each city, county, or state that allows this immigration had to pay for their sanctuary offerings you can well bet it would stop immediately.
    If Obama can write executive orders for just about anything, then Trump should be able to define a law which puts the pressure on this sanctuary problem as well.

  • chocopot says:

    Simple solution: cut off ALL federal funds to the city and the state in which that city is located (because the governor is allowing this to go on) and then send in federal agents and arrest all involved elected and appointed officials and charge them with treason.

    1. BlessedtoServe says:

      Yep that is how it should be handled.

    2. Rick says:

      Chocopot you are right on and should forward to Trump! Your solution seems to cover all the Basis! Very good and sensible solution

    3. used_to_be_a_liberal says:

      100% agree with you, and further this is not illegal “immigration”, there is no such thing as illegal “immigration”, what these “coddlers” are doing are aiding and abetting people who have entered the U S A illegally, those that aide and abet a criminal act are also guilty of committing a criminal act. The coddlers of these criminals, are also placing into jeopardy the national security of this nation, both politically, and economically.

  • James in Texas says:

    Defund all state and federal funding and, if the state resists then defund the state also! Under no allowance does either a state or federal agency or person have the “Right” to decide which laws they will obey!

  • Bowserb says:

    Let these liberal city officials resist. Trump MUST be strong and pull their federal funds. Once these cities run out of money, we’ll see how dedicated their citizens are to protecting the “rights” of illegals. This could be the wake up call Americans in these cities need.

    1. BlessedtoServe says:

      Yes, they have been acting lawlessness far too long, and like spoiled brats, they wish to continue in being lawlessness….enough. You break the law you pay…that includes any civil service worker or city, county or state officials…. period. Enforcing the laws that are already on the books.

  • Bowserb says:

    Illegal immigration is destroying our cities, school systems, hospitals, parks, and almost ironically, the environment which is allegedly so precious to the liberal Democrats. Even our perpetually declining small towns of America have had their demise accelerated by illegal immigration. Unless drastic action is taken very soon, our grandchildren will end their lives in a third world country: the former USA.
