Americans elected Donald Trump to crack down on illegal immigration.
He has lived up to his word.
Now Jeff Sessions has cooked up a secret weapon that Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are going to hate.
Sanctuary cities are a threat to Americans.
Rogue cities allow illegal aliens to roam freely even if they have a deportation order.
This lawless situation came to a head when one illegal alien – who had been deported multiple times, but always snuck back into the U.S. – murdered Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier in 2015.
He was acquitted of murder charges and set free.
That did not sit well with Donald Trump or Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Neilson testified before Congress that her agency is working with the Department of Justice to bring criminal charges against the leaders of sanctuary cities.
The 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.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community.
Mr. Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies.”
Trump has held onto his base because he backs up his campaign rhetoric with action.
Nowhere is that more true than with immigration.
The President rejected the Democrats amnesty legislation and his administration continues to press forward on cracking down on illegal immigration.
This is terrible news for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats.
Their goal is to boot Trump from office after one term.
But if Trump continues to fulfill his promises, his base will be motivated to turnout and he will win re-election.
