Charging that so-called "sanctuary" cities that protect illegal immigrants are jeopardizing national security, Attorney General Bill Barr announced a slew of additional sanctions that he called a "significant escalation" against left-wing local and state governments that obstruct the "lawful functioning of our nation's immigration system."

It's time states started following the law. States have rights, I am completely against state's rights being trampled. Immigration is not a state right, it is federal. Rapists, molesters, drunk drivers, these are the people that sanctuary cities are protecting. Let's start putting law abiding citizens first.

Please bring back some sanity.
This is part of the Trump offense we are about to see.
Full court press, overwhelm them, they won't know what to do.

Long overdue.

People have died because of these stanktuary cities.

From your article:


"The Founding Fathers carefully divided responsibility and power between the federal government and the state governments," Barr said. The 'Supremacy Clause' in Article VI of the Constitution provides that the 'Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof… shall be the supreme law of the land.'"

He added: "This Clause is a vital part of our constitutional order. Enforcing a country’s immigration laws is an essential function of the national government. And no national government can enforce those laws properly if state and local governments are getting in the way. While federal law does not require that 'sanctuary jurisdictions' actively assist with federal immigration enforcement, it does prohibit them from interfering with our enforcement efforts."

Consider what's happening in China and what may be illegally importing itself into our country right now ... We talk about disease, but it's a pressing issue at the moment.

Yes, great point.
I wonder if they will ask that question at the next democrat debate?
What kind of answer would they give?

Former AG Jeff Sessions tried this, and someone in CA made him back down. Sessions was not as tough and fearless as Barr.

And while they are at it, they need to remind the states that our bill of rights is not up for debate either.

Inclined to have a yawn there, like it or not, it's part of life, immigration or not, and it's all against the law...sooo? what does that say?

And cut-off the illegal-immigrant reimbursements sent to hospitals in those states. Last I heard, something like $420 million a month in Federal (OUR!) taxpayer dollars was sent to reimburse them for illegal alien medical care. (Hospitals probably fabricate a few Jose and Gomez treatments too. )

It says we need to import less of those types of crooks from other countries because we have enough of our own and some of them our own system simply ignores so their crime stats look better.

How much trouble do you want to borrow anyhow?

It says we need less of that in America, not more. Or do you not agree?

I just feel that when you disregard laws, you are doing a disservice to the nation. How can others look at the system and believe that some folks can just ignore laws they don't like, but insist that other follow the laws those same folks feel aren't important.

If you feel that a law is unjust, lobby to change it, work to change it, do something to change it. But you can't just ignore the one's you don't like.

No one except those the law doesn't recognize as being here in the first place.


I guess all Trump has to do is self-identify as an illegal alien, er, undocumented immigrant.
