Donald Trump has gone to war against Liberal immigration policies, and has brought a battering ram to the gates of “sanctuary cities”. He has announced plans to pull ALL federal funding from cities that refuse to comply with the law. A threat which has drawn intense fear and angst from states with many ‘sanctuary cities’ like California.
The American People are tired of the Left’s attempts to undermine our sovereignty, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott is spear heading the cause in his state. This is a HUGE moment in American history: do we defend our nation’s sovereignty by enforcing the borders, or allow anyone in? By electing Trump, it seems that the American People have chosen…
No doubt President-elect Trump’s campaign promise to “drain the swamp” especially involving illegal criminal aliens hiding within protected sanctuary cities, will hopefully be his first priority.
And the fact that progressive politicians have fired the fist volley, warning and even threatening the incoming administration with apparently nothing more than meaningless progressive bluster, simply demonstrates just how “out of touch”, the mayors of these cities like Chicago, New York, and Austin truly are.
In Texas for example Governor Greg Abbott was responding to a question on Twitter concerning the city of Austin which is apparently a sanctuary city, and run by mindless progressives, and President-elect Trumps promise to defund those cities that refuse to comply with federal immigration laws.

No doubt Governor Abbott and many like-minded conservative governors are caught between a rock and a hard place, in their attempt to walk a fine line.
Abbott is the “Chief Executive” of his state, and as such needs to use his legislative powers to force local mayors to comply, and it should be clear to all elected officials in all branches of government these individuals are actually “criminals” who have committed violent crimes, and those public officials who harbor known felons or use subterfuge as a means to impede federal authority are equally guilty under federal law of obstructing justice and should be held legally accountable.
Moreover when a mayor of a major city proclaims definitely to criminal illegal aliens: , “you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are supported in Chicago,” “Chicago will always be a sanctuary city.”
Then the battle lines have been drawn, so let the games begin!
Do you think sanctuary cities should be outlawed nation wide?
