VIDEO: President Trump: “We must stand up for our police.”

By 1600 Staff

President Trump did not mince words towards the criminals that are endangering Americans and killing police officers: “We believe criminals who kill our police should get the death penalty — bring it forth,” he said. “We must end the attacks on our police and we must end them right now.” The president called for the policy change with the backdrop of an event to honor fallen police officers, after recognizing several fallen officers and their families.

President Trump also called out sanctuary cities who flout federal law, saying “The first duty of government is to protect our citizens, and the men and women of DHS are on the front lines of this incredible, heroic fight. That is why we are calling on Congress to secure our borders, support our border agents, stop sanctuary cities, and shut down policies that release violent criminals back into our communities. We don’t want it any longer. We’ve had it. Enough is enough.  ”

The president recognized NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia, the mother of three who was murdered in the Bronx last year. “Your moms and dads were among the bravest Americans to ever live. When danger came, when darkness fell, when distraction loomed, they did not flinch. They were not afraid. They did not falter,” he added. “Their immortal legacy lives on in each and every one of you. Today, every American heart bleeds blue.”

Thank you Mr. President for speaking out and standing tall for those that protect us 24/7. You have the podium. Cop killers are disgusting vermin that do not deserve to breathe.

All these measures are essential for any sovereign nation. Trump loves America and he is serious about defending it.

The loss of a loved one becomes a treasure of memories forever. Thank you President Trump for eloquently acknowledging our men and women that wear the badge. To serve and protect is what they live for and we respect and honor that in our hearts.

I lived through over half of the 20th century. I was raised hearing my Mom say “If you are ever in trouble, or afraid, go to a Policeman and he will help you. I still believe this. They take a job that pays less than a lot of factory workers, and they face the possibility of being killed every day. They are honorable and brave. Sure, EVERY profession has a few “bad apples” but they are the exception, and gotten rid of as soon as possible. I salute our Police officers and Pray for them and their families.

I think those SANCTUARY communities OFFICIALS should be sent to JAIL for the CRIMES the ILLEGALS have done, I would think they should be treated actually the SAme as those ILLEGALS but STILL sent to jail because they are JUST LETTING those ILLEGALS run wherever they seem to want with NO restrictions or limits and it seems to be because they are ILLEGALS even though they BREAK our LAWS to get here and a FEW of them are TERRORIST and a few more are simply CROOKS trying to get something for NOTHING.

I MISSED saying the OFFICIALS should NOT be treated EXACTLY the same as those ILLEGALS but STILL sent to jail for being complicit in the crimes of the ILLEGALS.

Thank You to All Our Men and Women in Blue.
To the City Official’s not allowing them to uphold their Oath, ought to think of their own Oath of Office. ( Parkland, FL. For instance ).
No One is above the Law and should be treated as such, even City and State Official’s.
To Serve and Protect All, not pick and choose who.
