When Trump declared he would be the law and order candidate, he meant it. He has backed up his rhetoric since he won the presidency in true Trump fashion.
Trump is one of the few who has fearlessly and consistently called out the threat illegal aliens pose, and now his strength in addressing the issue is emboldening others to do the same.
Because of Trump’s courageous leadership, the fight against sanctuary cities has reached a massive turning point.
A Sheriff in a state that voted overwhelmingly for Clinton over Trump by over 800,000 people has called for the arrest of sanctuary city leaders.
From CBS Boston:
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told the House Subcommittee on Illegal Immigration that sanctuary cities “have become magnets for illegal aliens, some of which have violent criminal records.”
“If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials,” Hodgson said. “Our citizens would be safer if we never stopped enforcing immigration law and if we never formed or turned a blind eye toward sanctuary cities.”
Sheriff Hodgson’s tough and vocal stance on this issue was likely inspired by the recent actions of Massachusetts State Rep Michelle DuBois.
On Tuesday, Du Bois posted to Twitter that ICE were conducting raids in the area and warned illegals to stay inside and not answer their doors, even providing them with a phone number to call if they got picked up.
Hodgson was having none of it, stating, “This is the most outrageous, outrageous example of what is going on across the United States that is undermining my job and every other law enforcement officer in the United States.”
Boston’s status as a sanctuary city has led to its devastating crime rate. Overall, Boston’s crime rate is 45% higher than the Massachusetts average, and 6% higher than the national average. Violent crime statistics are especially terrifying as Boston’s violent crime rate that is 81% higher than the Massachusetts average and 90% higher than the national average.
Why are liberals so willing to throw their countrymen under the bus for people that can’t respect any of our nation’s laws?
Thankfully people like President Trump, Governor Abbot in Texas, and now Sheriff Hodgson in Massachusetts are willing to stand up and fight against the people threatening our country.
Perhaps their strength will inspire others to join the fight too.
