The fight for sanctuary cities and sanctuary states has been a long, drawn out battle these past few years. So many liberals have come out of the woodwork to support the supposed “rights” of a non-US citizen who entered America illegally in order to live off the bounty of our land.
So how did this all come to be? It’s your major cities where most of this liberal nonsense originates.
That’s one reason why it is quite a surprise when the mayor of San Antonio has come out in opposition to her city council’s predicable effort to sue the state to prevent the implementation of the ban on sanctuary cities.
“As the Express-News first reported, Mayor Ivy Taylor is now publicly opposing the lawsuit the City of San Antonio plans to file over the state’s new immigration law. Here’s a prepared statement her office just sent us:
“I believe it was premature for the majority of City Council to give direction for city staff to join in a lawsuit against the SB4 legislation. In this case, the prudent course would be to wait until a decision has been made on whether a special session will be called. Additionally, I believe that any decision to join this lawsuit should be made in coordination with other major Texas cities, which is why I have consulted with Mayors Adler (Austin), Turner (Houston) and Rawlings (Dallas). We should be certain that litigation is the measure of last resort and that the city is bearing its fair share of any legal burden. None of these conditions have been satisfied, which is why I continue to oppose City Council’s decision to join this lawsuit.”
What we’ve got here is a city council that is derelict in its responsible to support the rule of law. Non-citizens do not have the right to demand entry into the United States. And those who arrive here illegally have no right to remain. It’s just that simple.
Irresponsible leftist legislators and their allies in the court system are placing the non-existent rights of illegal migrants above the interests of American citizens. Yet they continue to get elected to office or somehow manage to keep their jobs as judges.
These sanctuary cities are more than refuges for foreign law-breakers. They are refuges from comment sense and the rule of law. Ultimately, they will pay a price for this stupidity, either in urban decay as their cities are filled with those who pay no taxes but consume public services, or from the violent lifestyles some of these illegal migrants pursue.
In any case, the legislators will get what they deserve, as will the people who elect them to office. It’s the innocent citizens who oppose this nonsense who are the victims.
