Trump’s number one priority, from the day he announced his campaign, has been keeping America safe.
And the only route to victory is to build a big, beautiful wall and to start enforcing immigration laws in our country.
Illegal immigrants are breaking the law to enter our sovereign nation, and then committing felonies using fake social security numbers to work, not paying taxes, and living off our welfare system.
So Trump warned sanctuary cities he would penalize them for refusing to enforce federal laws, and he was gearing up to carry out his threat, especially in places like California.
Well Obama, at least for now, has a response to that, and while it is completely unjust, it is angering Americans of all stripes and making our nation a more dangerous place to live.
From the Associated Press:
A federal judge on Tuesday blocked any attempt by the Trump administration to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending.
U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the preliminary injunction in two lawsuits – one brought by the city of San Francisco, the other by Santa Clara County – against an executive order targeting communities that protect immigrants from deportation.
The injunction will stay in place while the lawsuits work their way through court.
The judge said that President Donald Trump cannot set new conditions for the federal grants at stake. And even if he could, the conditions would have to be clearly related to the funds at issue and not coercive, Orrick said.
“Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the president disapproves,” the judge said.
Liberals are on the ropes, and the only way they can combat the overwhelming common sense—and the will of the people—is to hide behind Obama-appointed liberal judges who are willing to subvert the law to get what they want.
Withholding federal funds from belligerent cities and states is in the President’s prerogative, and no one was even discussing the legal possibility of blocking Trump until it happened.
After the courts blocked Trump’s travel ban, and now this travesty, Donald may need to consider more forceful measures to get his agenda passed, for the safety and general welfare of its citizens.
But I’m sure he’s three steps ahead of us.
