Two months ago President Trump informed Sanctuary cities that if they don’t comply with immigration law they will pay a price.
On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that that day is coming reminding them in his own words, “The American people know that when cities and states refuse to help enforce immigration laws, our nation is less safe.”
“Federal Officials could Claw Back funds granted to the cities that shelter illegal immigrants”, “Such policies cannot continue,” Sessions stated. “They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the street.”
Jeff Sessions pointed out that he is not requesting more than compliance with the law of the land, “Today, I am urging states and local jurisdictions to comply with these federal laws,” he said.
He pointed out Maryland, a state candidate for becoming a sanctuary state, where the rape of the 12-year-old student happened.
“I would plead with the people of Maryland to understand this makes the state of Maryland more at risk for violence and crime, that it’s not good policy,” he stated, calling the policy “a mistake.”
Cities like Chicago, New York, San Francisco are required to report to the immigration authorities when an illegal person is in custody but they decide not to do that.
In January Trump issued an executive order taking severe measures on sanctuary cities. “Sanctuary jurisdictions across the United States willfully violate Federal law in an attempt to shield aliens from removal from the United States. These jurisdictions have caused immeasurable harm to the American people and to the very fabric of our Republic,” Trump’s order said.
