"Cut All Federal Aid To Sanctuary Cities Now!"
It is quite bad enough that our federal government has allowed 20 million illegals to invade our country, strangle us financially as they suck the life out of our social programs and hospitals, pay no taxes, and commit tens of thousands of violent and property crime. However, now the Amnesty/Open Borders folks, have taken us to a new level of civil disobedience.
There are now dozens of major cities in the United States who have declared themselves Sanctuary Cities. Everyone of these cities are run by liberal politicians who show no moral compass. These maverick cities refuse to arrest illegal aliens unless a felony has been committed, refuse to alert the Immigration and Naturalization Service to an illegal's presence in this country. They offer all manner of social services to illegals and favor the illegal alien over American citizens.
New York City, Boston, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Seattle, Los Angeles and Chicago are just a few of the cities deemed Sanctuary Cities. In the past year these cities have withdrawn from the federal government's "Secure Communities Program" which requires that dangerous illegal felons be turned over to ICE for deportation following their local jail time, even for dangerous felons!
Obama's "hood", Chicago, is the latest of these mavericks who are putting Americans in extreme danger. They just passed an ordinance that bans law enforcement authorities to turn over felons to the feds for deportation. Accordingly, 40 dangerous felons were released this week from Chicago prisons. Another 300 or so will be released today!
There is a simple solution to this. While we know Obama won't do it, the next President must issue an executive order that withholds all federal funds to any American city that serves as a sanctuary to illegal aliens.
I just wrote my Congressman on this! Take 5 minutes and write yours!
