Looks like the first "sanctuary city" area to abide by the Trump order to stop is here !!

Florida Miami-Dade Mayor (??) has reportedly signed something that directs the county jail to conform with ICE.

Something is strange about the article......

And trump Tweeted about it too (confirmed tweet)

Miami-Dade Mayor Complies With Pres. Trump, Effectively Ending ‘Sanctuary City’ Policy

The Mayor of Miami-Dade, Florida has reportedly ordered county jails to comply with President Donald Trump‘s orders regarding illegal immigrants.

The move will effectively end the county’s “sanctuary city” policy—keeping millions in federal aid pouring in.

The Miami Herald broke the news: [Mayor Carlos A.] Gimenez cited an executive order signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump that threatened to cut federal grants for any counties or cities that don’t cooperate fully with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Since 2013, Miami-Dade has refused to indefinitely detain inmates who are in the country illegally and wanted by ICE — not based on principle, but because the federal government doesn’t fully reimburse the county for the expense.

President Trump, on Twitter, praised the Mayor’s decision


Now read this story....
Miami-Dade uncertain after Trump goes after sanctuary cities

Miami-Dade County shouldn’t be considered a “sanctuary city” because it cooperates with federal law enforcement when detaining immigrants, officials said Wednesday.

Michael Hernandez, a spokesman of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, said they don’t know yet whether the county will be deprived of federal funds under a new order signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump that seeks to crack down on illegal immigration.

Last year, a Department of Justice report listed Miami-Dade as one of the communities that refused to comply with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Why they gotta say immigrants when they should be saying undocumented aliens/criminals?

A lot of "immigrants" have green cards or are here on student visas or work visas. Technically, if those "immigrants" get busted/convicted of a crime, like a DUI or Possession, they're supposed to be deported.

You are dog gone right that they are. Trump will break these weak kneed liberal community organizers over his knee.

It's simple the Republican mayor wants the funding that the Federal Government didn't give them, if that is the case, then Donald needs to cough up, which he is likely bounden to do now.

I think the term illegal aliens is the most accurate / correct term.

PC brigade be damned.

Something is mighty odd here.

Miami-Dade is the county that the City of Miami is in.

Gimenez is the county mayor.

what is going on here?

Indeed.

I was curious, so I looked up a list of Sanctuary Cities.

Map: Sanctuary Cities, Counties, and States

This is a very long list.


The Department of Justice's Inspector General recently found that some of the sanctuary jurisdictions appear to be violating federal law, and may face debarment from certain federal funding or other consequences.

The sanctuary jurisdictions are listed below. These cities, counties, and states have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE — either by refusing to or prohibiting agencies from complying with ICE detainers, imposing unreasonable conditions on detainer acceptance, denying ICE access to interview incarcerated aliens, or otherwise impeding communication or information exchanges between their personnel and federal immigration officers.


This was from December, 2016.
The Department of Justice's Inspector General said at that time that these cities were violating federal law.
