Trump calling on Congress to Stop Funding Sanctuary Cities to save American lives
President Trump continued his battle with sanctuary cities this week on a campaign stop in Pennsylvania. Trump is calling on Congress to immediately stop funding American cities breaking federal law.
Trump ordered Congress to stop giving money to cities that insist on going against federal immigration law. Trump said Congress has to put the lives of American citizens before those breaking the law.
Just this past week Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed suit against the state of California. This prompted the nutty California Governor Jerry Brown to state that the Trump administration had declared war on his state.
California must be full of nuts because Oakland mayor Libby Schaff has said that she is willing to go to jail to protect Oakland’s illegals. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials announced this week that the four-day raid led to the arrest of 232 illegal immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Of those 232, 180 “were either convicted criminals, had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed” from the country and had come back illegally.
The arrests included 115 who “had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.”
Trump said “I’m calling on Congress to stop funding sanctuary cities so we can save American lives. The massive funding bill should not give precious an massive tax payer grants to citied aiding and abetting criminals,” Trump said at a Republican rally for Representative Rick Saccone. “It’s what they do.”
Democrats have made it clear that they put illegals before the lives of American citizens. If 115 violent criminals were arrested in Oakland with their mayor warning the illegals ICE was coming imagine the trash they could have gotten off the street if they had no warning. Trump called Schaff “a disgrace.”
