Some congressmen and women are taking action. Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, who chairs the Appropriations subcommittee, wrote to Attorney General Loretta Lynch requesting that none of the $2 billion that is distributed by the Department of Justice go to these rogue municipalities. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas introduced a bill that would defund sanctuary cities. In the House, Representative Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania introduced another bill that would require that municipalities comply with federal immigration authorities. Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina and Senator Jeff Sessions have taken things a step further by introducing legislation that would authorize states to crack down on illegal immigration and expand the power of ICE to detain dangerous illegals.
It is vitally important for Americans to stand proudly against the dangerous practices of sanctuary cities. It’s a matter of protecting the safety of Americans in our own home country.
