Washington Times reports: Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.
“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer. This isn’t the first time calls for arresting leaders of sanctuary cities have been made.
Oh so what’s going on in US sanctuary cities during President Trump actually is supporting the Federal arrests of sanctuary city mayors like Bill De Blasio of NYC and Rahm Emanuel of Chicago.
If the DHS is fully prepared to make Federal arrests of US city leaders that are allowing Sanctuary for illegals, then this could mean in itself an end of Sanctuary for illegal immigrants across the board.
Also with this if the DHS does Federally prosecute leaders of Sanctuary Cities in America, then along with that we could see a massive drop in crime across these cities…
As violent crimes and other crimes are rising across multiple US Sanctuary Cities.
This move by DHS preparing to arrests Sanctuary City leadership really makes you curious if these Sanctuary City mayors are on the list of almost 10,000 sealed indictments?
