In an Outrageous Move, Trump Is Going to Enforce the Law

It's hard to write this because the news is just sooooo outrageous.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced today that the Department of Justice is going to enforce the law and cut off federal funds currently going to sanctuary cities.  In other words, if the DOJ asks a local police department to hold an illegal alien who has been arrested until ICE can get someone to that department to take custody of the individual in question and if that local department refuses to cooperate, then federal funding for that local police department will be stopped.

Oh, the horror!  The Trump justice department actually wants local police to hold violent felons for ICE so that these murderers and rapists and gang members can be deported.  It's just wrong!

Attorney General Sessions announced the move today.  He pointed out that the funds to be cut off come through three grant programs — the COPS grants, Byrne grants and State Criminal Alien Assistance Program money — that already require sanctuary certification.  The rules requiring recipients of these grants to comply with detainer requests by ICE were set up under the Obama administration.  Strangely, the Obamacrats never bothered to enforce that policy.  Sessions says that the Department of Justice will now actually follow the law.

It's about time that the crazies who think that their cities should help protect violent felons from deportation even though that places ordinary Americans at risk understand that such stupid moves have consequences.  Some cities will surely accept the loss of funds rather than following the law.  Still, there will undoubtedly be other cities that start honoring ICE requests.  If this can save even one person from injury or death at the hands of a criminal illegal alien, then it will all be worth it.

The idea that the left finds enforcing the law as written to be wrong really tells us all we need to know about these fools.
