Trump Announces Admin Will Begin Withholding Funds From Sanctuary Cities

President Trump has announced that his administration will begin withholding funds from sanctuary cities following a court decision that ruled in favor of them doing so.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Thursday said his administration will begin withholding funding from self-described sanctuary cities after a federal court ruled last week that it could do so.

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled on Feb. 26 that the Department of Justice (DOJ) could withhold funding from cities and states that refuse to cooperate with the Trump administration’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants.

The three-judge panel found Congress had delegated authority to the attorney general to set conditions on the federal grant program it had created, called the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.

The decision came after multiple courts had ruled against the Trump administration on the issue, saying it lacked the authority to impose immigration-related conditions on certain funding.

Officials from the 7 states and jurisdictions who sued the Trump administration have promised to appeal the ruling.

I honestly have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand the leaders of Sanctuary states and cities are clearly traitors … on the other hand, if Trump is successful with this you can expect Dems down the road to use this tactic against Second Amendment Sanctuaries.

The difference with the 2nd Amendment, it is a CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED right, while the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADING ARMY has NO Constitutional rights/liberties/protections!!

IF the stupid leftist libTURD democRAT COMMIES want to do away with the 2nd Amendment, there is only ONE way to do so–an amendment to REPEAL the 2nd Amendment. I doubt they would ever have the number of states required in order to do so.

Commander-in-Cheif of what? Tired of all this crap! Illegal is illegal. Do we have 535 idiots who do not understand that word? So, what law(s) can I decide not to obey? Oh, only the corrupt government can do this and not the law-abiding citizen.

Great move by America’s 1st real president in Decades. All the: Mayors, Chiefs of police and Governors involved in the illegal invasion of the United States of America are CRIMINALS.

Wonderful it is time for our nation to be upholding the law as far as the entire country is concerned especially if any of these enities desire federal taxpayer funds for anything. Whether in actual funds or tax breaks including all 503(c) organizations.
