Sanctuary City Populations Halve Under President Trump

By 1600 Staff

In early 2017, Public Radio International reported that 92 percent of Americans live in sanctuary jurisdictions. During the Obama era, the number of sanctuary jurisdictions grew by 650%. President Trump vowed as a candidate to end sanctuary cities, and it appears that in spite of stiff resistance, it is happening.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that only 49 percent of Americans currently live in sanctuary jurisdictions, which is remarkable given that the number of sanctuaries has grown. In the last year, states like Texas and Iowa have enacted laws against sanctuary cities and the noncompliance with federal immigration law by local authorities.

The shift shows a culture change, namely that areas that oppose the Trump administration’s push against Sanctuary Cities are changing their laws to block cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. As President Trump’s Executive Order on the matter goes before the Supreme Court, a favorable ruling means that the federal government will withhold funds against jurisdictions that disregard the law, which will likely decrease the sanctuary city population even further, as localities that cannot replace federal funds comply.

Please come to San Francisco and get rid of ‘sanctuary city’ status brought on years ago by then mayor gavin newsome. Since then, this once clean great, affordable and eminently liveable city has become a dirty disgusting CRAPHOLE and the calcutta of the west cosst. The big joke, newsome, mr. ‘sanctuary city’ of San Francisco is running rot governor and expects the people here to have short memories of the destruction he and the other liberals have done to this city and the BS they’ve foisted on the legal residents here. And this first class ASSWWIPE wnats people here to vote for him, unbelievable! Anybody who doubts the destruction caused by the liberals, come to California and specifically San Francisco and see the destruction for themselves: crappy and failing infrastructure, bums and homeless ‘tent cities everywhere, dirty streets littered with used condoms and used needles and that reek with thwe stench of urine and feces, hoards of illegal chinese ‘boat people’ ,some of the rudest ill mannered ‘n arrogant cockrocahes who’re first in line for all the ‘freebies’ doled out by the liberals running this place, paid for by the hard working overburdened taxpayers, and who’ve taken over many neighborhoods in this once clean city and have tuned ’em into third world encleves complete with filth, squalor and stench, crime going out of control the DA won’t do a damned thing to control, unaffordable housing and living costs, and some of the highest taxes to pay for all thei BS and the list goes on and on. Get rid of ALL ‘sanctuary cities’ and do whatever is needed to eliminate this outrage and waste of taxpayers funds to pay for all the BS it’s causing!

Thank you –I hope there are many like yourself who speak up and fight back;
I live in another city that has become “horrible” and that is New York City;
in fact, it has been changing for the worst for a long time –20 yrs ago,
I encountered while walking a young woman from Mongolia, here on a Visa
that only had 2 months left for her to stay; I never forgot what she asked me.
She asked “Where are all the Americans?”…..she should see this city now; the
corruption with the likes of Michael Bloomberg, former Mayor, behind it;
what a liar this man is –he is and always had been a liberal and got into office
when he changed his party to Republican; because former Mayor Rudolph Guillaini,
a hero who was in office during 9-11, a REpublican Mayor, was loved….it didn’t
take Bloomberg long; after he was in office for a brief period of time, he left the
party clandestinely……and he is BACK, and backing another, Obama, who is
also behind the scenes clandestinely, trying to bring down Trump……and backing
these horrid politicians.

I am so glad daca was not authorized by the president. Those are some bad people! They hate America, and they are drop outs, anti-Americans, welfare hogs, criminals and losers. There are 43 million illegals in this country, that is 43 million more than I want in my country! End giving them housing, food, salaries, free health care, free college, and free legal services, and they will leave on their own. Hey if I can’t afford to live in someplace above my income, why should any of them? They are not refugees. Refugees are the Christians of the mid-east, or the white farmers in Africa, not people from S. America, middle east,that is bullshit! Companies that help them lie to our border patrol , the management of those companies belong in prison! For treason against the US.

It’s about time! Federal authorities, please come to San Francisco and see the destruction and lawlessness caused by this ‘sanctuary city’ ‘policy’ foisted on the majority of us here by the liberals determined to drive the quality of life here into the ground, and so far, they’ve succeeded. Start in chinatown with the hoards of illegal chinese ‘boat people’ whos ‘anchor babies clain US citizenship . These disgusting rude ill mannered cockroaches push and shove in line for all the ‘handouts’, despite never having worked here and are UNQUALIFIED to receive ANY PUBLIC SERVICES yet are first in line to get all the ‘freebies’, aka ‘hand outs, ‘aka ‘give aways’ or to put it bluntly, ‘public services’ paid for by none other than the hardworking, struggling taxpayers here (many who need them and are qualified() who can’t get ANY of these services, mind you these funds are taxpayer funds, ’cause’ guess what, they’re broke! Great opportunities coming up beginning with the mid term election in June and continue with the November general election t begin and continue the ‘dumbocrap’ purge and vote out OUT ALL thee no good anti Americans! . It’s long overdue time for people here to get smart, do their due diligence and get rid of ALL the liberal bozos here robbing the taxpayers with all kinds of new BUPKUS taxes to pay for all the programs supporting their only constituents who’ll votwe for them. For those who still doubt the destruction caused by the ‘dumbocrsaps’ aka liberals, come to California, and for a real dose of reality, San Francisco,and see the real thing: bums and homeless ‘tent’ cities’ everywhere, dirty streets littered with used condoms and needles and that reek with the stench of urine and feces. crime going thtough the roof that the worthless liberal DA refuses to deal with, eg. catch and release. Remember the Kate Steinlie verdict?, crappy local economy, unaffordable housing and costs of living going through the roof, and some of the highest taxes to pay for all this lawless BULL***T! You can bet those in power here: dianne fenstein, ‘nasty’ nancy pigliosi, jerry ‘the clown’ brown gavin mr.’ sanctuary city’ San Francisco and antonio villragiosa, mayor of ‘sanctuary city’ of Los Angeles live in gated communities far away forom all this S**T foisted on the rest of us. The aforementioned liberals are nothing but fisaclly incompetent clowns who’ve done absolutely NADA, ZERO, ZIPPO, SQUAT, ZILCH, NOTHING and BUPKUS to improve the lives of the legal citizens here and the quality of life. Still don’t believe me, people and business fed up with what’s gong on in California, higher and higher taxes, overregulation of businesses, and so much more I could go on but what’s the point, are leaving in droves, check it out, it’s verifiable! Among all this, there’re still people who believe and listen to all the lies, drivvel and pure BS these liberals spew every election time while they pander to the voters, flip ’em the ‘bird’ behind their backs, laugh all the way to the bank, and practice their ‘socialist’ mantra: ‘all for me and F**K everyone else as long as I continue my luxury lifestyle, have S**T loads of taxpayer funds for all the ‘freebies’, after all it’s their money, not mine, for all the ‘social services’, I don’t have to answer to anybody and can sit on my ASS and promote my own personal agenda’, yes folks that’s the liberals in a nutshell. Unfortunately, they’ve taken the once great state of California and San Francisco in particular the crown jewel of the state and turned it into a giant nightmarish CRAPHOLE and the calcutta of the west coast, sad to say. Their version os a ‘socialist’ UTOPIA? Last but not least, in my years on earth and a lot of those years here in San Francisco, I’ve found a similie between the liberals and mythological King Midas. With King Midas, everything he touched tuerned to gold, a good thing in many ways, with the liberals, aka ‘dumbocraps’ everything they touch and control turns to SHIT! Also along with the general election in November, in California we’ve got a gubernatorial election and the final end of jerry ‘the clown’ brown’s term and it can’t come son enough. Now we’ve got to make sure gavin, mr. ‘senctuary city’ of San Francisco , who’s running to succeed brown is defeated big time and hopefully this’ll be the end of this political career. What goes around comes around! It’s payback time for all the BS this guy foisted on San Francisco and dumped us for Sacramento and didn’t have to deal with any of this! This social climbing and pretty boy first class SNAKE hopes the people of San Francisco have short term memories and are stupid and vote for him for governor, no way, under mmy watch! His liberal opponent antonio villaragiosa who as Los Angeles mayor has turned the states largest city into one reeking CESSPOOL is runnng for govwrnor as well. If by God, either of these snakes gets the job, it’ll be business as usual and the destrction will go on and California will be DONE! Please people get smart, get rid of the liberals, think of your future, your children’ future and your grandchildrens’ future because under the liberals, they won’t have futures, !

But the term Racists is loosing any meaning as its used all the time to intimidate those of us who believe Our country has a border; that border must be respected by immigrants and our citizens; any one committing a crime needs to be arrested and dealt with according to the law.
Besides which its not a crime in most cities to own a gun.

We have become a nation flapping in the wind, the rudder has been broken, and the people are not willing to fix it.
Those who claim to want to come to America for a better life, when getting here, they want to change everything to the way it was in their country.
Obvious to me, they do not want to obey LAWS.
So , I have no sympathy for letting them stay. They don’t want to speak our language, don’t want to obey our laws, don’t want to put any effort into becoming American citizens, want all the benefits that we have worked years to obtain through hard work. NOPE SEND THEM HOME, and have them apply through proper channels.

That’s because ALMOST all of them come from countries that drive on the LEFT side of the road. THEY refuse to assimilate. We must adapt to their home country. They refuse to adapt to ours. But OUR country is where they are currently living, so why shouldn’t THEY adapt and assimilate? Because the radical LEFT tells them they don’t have to. WE have to. For the last 13 years, I’ve worked for a company that brought many, MANY from both India and the Philippines. They were supposed to come here for 6 months. Technically legal, on a work visa. BUT, either the employee or his wife came here 3-4 months pregnant. So the baby was born here. Automatic anchor baby, birthright citizenship. So mom and dad were allowed to stay with the NEW US citizen. BUT, then chain migration kicks in. His and her parents, and all of their siblings get to come here. Then the 4 parents siblings, and ALL their children, grandchildren and nieces and nephews. It usually totaled 30 to 50 would come here, and NEVER leave. some automatically collect welfare, some took jobs from Americans. This is a VERY under/unreported system that is all too common. This is just one of many, MANY aspects of immigration that must be reformed. The US is the ONLY country left on this planet that still has birthright citizenship. This MUST end. Retroactive for at least 30 years. That way temp workers, and illegals won’t do everything in their power to have an anchor baby in this country. The law should be changed. The BABY automatically takes the immigration status of the PARENTS, like the rest of the world. This will fix ALOT. Then end sanctuary cities protecting ILLEGALS until they can pop out a baby or two, and hundreds of thousands, if not millions of immigrants will be able to be deported.
SCREW DACA, they are still illegal. ALL illegals have committed a CRIME, entering this country illegally. That means ALL illegals are criminals. DEPORT them ALL. Like I said, retroactively for at least the last 30 years. THAT will straighten out the immigration problem a TON. Maybe I sound cruel, but I stand for THIS country, not any other country. Most other countries have even more strict laws. Just look up Mexico’ s immigration laws. They throw ALL illegals into the worst prison in the northern hemisphere. Even LEGAL immigrants can NEVER own land or a house. They can buy a house on property, but the STATE assumes ownership, until the immigrant sells back to a naturally born Mexican. Look ALL this up. It’s ALL 100% verifiable. And though I was too physically injured to serve, though I tries several services, I did serve my fellow American as a street medic for well over 20 years. AND YES, I saw stuff, with welfare, and illegal’s, medically, that is charged to the American taxpayer, that would turn every American’s stomach, and probably be enough to turn the most viral liberal to the most ardent conservative.

Absolutely! They’re damaging all the states by their tolerance of sanctuary cities, because these aliens are not confined to CA. They can go anywhere they please and cause harm and/or death to people in other states. I have no tolerance for the people that are invading our country. The govt is supposed to protect us from invasions, and they are not fulfilling their responsibilities in that area. It’s not fair to people who come here the ‘right’ way, and it’s not fair to Americans who are paying fortunes to provide them with free medical care, legal representation, food, education, etc., etc., etc. Lots of services that our own citizens can’t afford and don’t get them free. And the fact that the can vote illegally in our elections will soon make any party except the Democraps and Communists a thing of the past. If people don’t start rising up in opposition to these Commies that are running some of our largest cities, the whole country is gonna be one big dump.

It’s interesting to read and hear the advocates for sanctuary cities. They ALL rely on one (or both) “justifications” : First, the people are so afraid of ICE that they won’t report crime because of their fear of ‘repatriation’ (that’s being sent home); second, we have NO RIGHT (?) to enforce “our” immigration laws because THEY cause hardship (family breakup/anchor baby abandonment). Of course there are other “excuses” which are not broadcast for obvious reasons — such as a LARGE welfare pool of democratic votes (yes, they come out for each election cycle to support their benefactors — in Mexifornia they want to make it “legal” for NON CITIZENS to hold public office) — and ANY attempt to ‘verify’ voter ID or qualification is fought tooth and nail. The ‘REAL’ tip off is the “offense” taken when ever the TRUTH is expressed — there is NO SUCH THING as an illegal alien — only an UNDOCUMENTED individual. Call it what you may, if you are in OUR country illegally, you have BROKEN THE LAW!!! While they may claim to be here to ‘work’, illegal’s are costing the AMERICAN TAXPAYER over $100,000,000,000 (yes, that’s 100 BILLION) dollars a year.

You can see more and more why liberals want sanctuary cities. It’s because too many Real Americans see the democrat party for what it really is, Democrats can’t tell us the truth, because most rational people won’t but it, and won’t vote for them. so they have to shore up their voting base with illegals. They got their asses handed to them by Donald Trump, they thought they stole enough dead and illegal votes to carry Hillary over the top. But neglected to take the electoral college into account. That’s why Hillary keeps running her big yap about “After all I did win almost 4 million votes than Trump, but still lost” LMAO.

City and state officials who enact laws to protect sanctuary cities and illegal aliens, are breaking U.S. laws and should be dealt with the same way any other American lawbreaker would be. Stiff fines and long prison sentences would be a great start. When elected officials put the lives of illegals before Americans, they need to suffer the consequences.

So called Sanctuary Cities are a disgrace. How can these politicians justify protecting illegal criminal aliens from ICE? Try doing your job and protecting this Country and its citizens!!

my grandparents came here the legal way and had to spend a week at ellis island untill they could be found healthy and be of service to this country. They had to prove themselves worthy of being in America. Enough with this …The illegals feel we as legal citizens owe them …We own them NOTHING!!!!! Send them ALL back now!!!

Sanctuary cities and rights for illegals are all a ploy by the Obama administration ge get the illegals to vote democrat. President Trump saw this as a problem and it bothered his, as it is a t crime to destabilize the entire SW border for votes. He brought thses concerns to the WH when he became president, and even on his campaign trail.
The people what want the sanctuary cities are the crazy liberals who live in areas where there is high end subdivisions that have armed security guards who patrol the streets therefore the illegals won’t bother them there in those areas. the communities that have become a sanctuary is identical to an illegal act of aiding and abetting and the leaders of those communities should be punished if they allow these illegals in their community. If our elected officials can’t obey the law then they need to be arrest and put in prison too. AMEN No get out of jail free card, you have committed a crime as have the illegal so therefore you all can do time….be deported, pay high fines, and both lose their jobs, pensions, raises, retirement, and no SS income….you sloe you broke the rules.

The liberals want to turn america into a damn communist socialist state full of foreigners who have no love for america . The most uneducated the better so they can manipulate their voting an fix our Presidental elections forever with left leaning communists. Joseph Stalin killed 60 million in communist Russia during the 1920s an 30s. He called himself a democratic socialist, Bernie Sanders calls himself a democratic socialist. NO thanks liberal left I saw communism in SE Asia in the 60s an you can go to hell with your socialism an open borders. The only reason the liberal left is after President Trump is because it is delaying their destroying the United States . GO BACK TO HELL COMMUNISM AND TAKE THE LIBERAL LEFT WITH YOU. AMERICA IS THE CORNER STONE OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD AND FREEDOM LOVING PEOPLE WITH FIGHT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY. YOU CAN DEPEND ON THAT ……

I’ve got a getter idea about keeping the illegals out of OUR country. About every ten to fifteen miles a full-size catapult like in olden times is set up and we throw them back across the border. When there is a pile of illegals on the other side of the border every ten to fifteen miles, maybe they’ll get the hint we don’t want them and they’ll stop trying to cross the border. It can’t hurt (us) to try.

Breaking the law is breaking the law. Illegal immigrants are breaking the law. Providing sanctuary is aiding and abetting people who are breaking the law. Either we are a nation of laws or we are not. Which is it?

ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL – PERIOD!
Rich, liberal democrats have betrayed the Middle Class of this country. Since they are able to afford professional security for themselves, they now want to destroy our Second Amendments rights to self defense. Since they have no credibility anymore with anyone, they want to import a new underclass of voters to keep themselves in office and to keep themselves in money. They are as corrupt as Eric Holder and their model of government would make Venezuela look good. REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER AND SHOW THEM ALL THE DOOR!

Sanctuary cities should not exist in America. Providing refuge to those that break our laws is wrong and sends the wrong message out to the world, and more importantly to our young people. Our youth is the future of this nation and we must do our best to train them to obey our laws, and support our culture.

Google ‘White Water + Clintons + unexplained deaths/jail sentences. I worked for a man that went to prison for a year because of the Clintons. They are very powerful people and that’s why Comey (conveniently) couldn’t find any problem with emails/text from/to Hillary. I still would love to see her in prison BUT like I said, she is very powerful. God can deal with her.

God bless President Trump for having the courage to be the strong leader God made him to be! So many recent Presidents have not kept their promises and have hurt America. We are truly blessed that President Trump is honorable and keeps his promises. We are blessed that he truly loves America.

the only way to really run the country is having term limits. and if all these elected people don’t abide by the constitution, recall them. lets get some real thinkers in there, instead of a lot of idiots that just want to talk and do nothing. lets just drain the swamp and get people in there with common sense.

A very simple solution to our immigration mess including sanctuary cities. Enforce our immigration laws as they were intended and locate and deport the visa over stays which account for some 40% of illegals. Our federal laws should have never been ignored and gotten to this state. Politicians who think otherwise need to be replaced. The wall cannot be built soon enough.

Here in MN. because of our idiot Governor Dayton we have a huge problem with Somali immigrant’s. They don’t or will not assimilate and it’s estimated there are 73,000 in the Twin Cities and spreading all over the state. The brought with them infectious diseases like measles and TB. Their main objective is to take over but the idiots in our government don’t care. Most don’t work or won’t work and breed like rats.

Jim Crow laws created sanctuary states for whites although they were not called that. But they created situations that white were above the law for drinking some water fountains, could sit at lunch counters, etc.. Also created by the democrats. The democrats are political animals and do anything to make the party great. To get elected so they can hand out more patronage to groups so they will vote democrat no matter what.

Separate but equal schools were made illegal way back when in the Topeka ruling. Separate but “more” equal surely is just as illegal? Just a different form of segregation. Of course congress has made working for the govt, being inan elected office a form of segregation for themselves. Lots of perks for themselves. Including what appears to me the current situation that they only pass laws for us to obey and them to enforce! We re not supposed to have rulers, party big shots that are our rulers. They are supposed to be public servants but when campaigning they always say. Vote for me so I can wondrous deeds for you. What they really mean is to do wondrous deeds for the party.
