Trump’s War on Sanctuary Cities Is About More Than Politics



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

Your safety, your very life is at stake when a Police Chief or Sheriff says they will protect criminals.   Every victim of an illegal alien needs to sue the Governor and law enforcement for conspiring to help criminals get away with the crime—and protecting them from arrest.  If a cop protected a bank robber, an American, from the police, the cop would be indicted and jailed.  Why not the Police Chief who does that for criminals from foreign nations.

“Indeed, targeting sanctuary cities, counties, and states is just one part of what appears to be a systematic campaign to combat illegal immigration. Other elements of that plan already in place include reviving the “public charge” regulation, replacing “catch and release” with “catch and return” (sending asylum-seekers back to Mexico to await their hearings), denying asylum claims for those who passed through other countries without seeking asylum in them, and ending the Obama-era practice of family separation.

Clearly, the administration has expanded from its original, nearly singular focus on “the wall” to action on almost every front on illegal immigration. Why is this all happening within the last year?

Cynics would chalk it up to pure politics. As the campaign season has progressed, the left has run further and further left, embracing open border policies. President Donald Trump’s immigration moves, they say, are being made because he wants to draw a sharp contrast in the minds of voters.

Trump is keeping his promise to make our streets safe and criminals fearful of being arrested.  Too bad law enforcement leadership have become political activists rather than protecting the families of their community.

Oh boy, do I agree with you! Friends of mine recently went into Van Nuys to visit their old neighborhood. City streets were lined three deep with homeless sitting or sleeping, businesses were closing because shoppers could not even get into the stores, and there were needles and such lying “all over” the sidewalks!

They said there were blocks of such filth they hurriedly left.

We definitely need our cities and state to be safe and clean again. Thank you for supporting President Trump’s efforts!
