4 Things: President Trump’s New Year’s Resolutions for 2017

2. Defund Sanctuary Cities

sanctuary-citiesThe problem of illegal immigration is made worse by the existence of sanctuary cities. There are more than 300 of them around the country, and they are so named because they shelter illegal aliens from deportation and prevent officials from checking people’s immigration status.

Sanctuary cities are the result of bleeding-heart liberals who care more about illegal aliens than they do American citizens. So, countless innocent Americans, like Kate Steinle of San Francisco, have lost their lives in sanctuary cities due to officials at every level who are too cowardly to enforce the law. What message does it send when illegal aliens are allowed to remain in America without punishment?

Sanctuary cities are an assualt on the rule of law and an abuse of taxpayers’ money. Therefore, President Trump should strip federal funding from all of them on Day One of his presidency.
