The voters who put Donald Trump into the office of President of the United States did so with the full knowledge that he would be enforcing federal immigration laws, something which former President Obama steadfastly refused to do.
Not only that, but Trump promised to build a border wall to slow down and ultimately stop the flow of illegal immigrants into America from Mexico. Alongside that, he also promised to quickly deport illegals, beginning with those that have criminal records. That means removing violent illegal immigrant felons such as rapists, drug dealers, and armed robbers from freely roaming our streets, victimizing Americans.
Those cities who have harbored such illegals, known as sanctuary cities, are about to get a wake up call from the president! President Trump is vowing to put a stop to illegals re-entering the country by threatening to withhold government grants from sanctuary cities who choose to defy his no sanctuary policy, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions agrees!

Two months after President Donald Trump warned America’s sanctuary cities they must comply with immigration officials or pay a price, Attorney General Jeff Sessions backed up that warning with his own statement that the day of reckoning is drawing near.
You can watch his announcement here:
“The American people know that when cities and states refuse to help enforce immigration laws, our nation is less safe,” Sessions said Monday as he took the podium at White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s media briefing, noting that federal officials could “claw back” funds granted to cities that shelter illegal immigrants.
“Such policies cannot continue,” he said. “They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the street.”
Sessions said he is asking nothing more than obedience to the law of the land.
“Today, I am urging states and local jurisdictions to comply with these federal laws,” he added.
Sessions specifically singled out Maryland, which is considering a proposal to become a sanctuary state. That step comes at the same time as the state has been rocked by the reported rape of a 14-year-old in her Rockville, Md., high school by two older students, at least one of whom is an illegal immigrant.
“I would plead with the people of Maryland to understand this makes the state of Maryland more at risk for violence and crime, that it’s not good policy,” he said, calling the policy “a mistake.”
Federal law requires police agencies to inform immigration authorities when an illegal immigrant is in custody. However, cities such as Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and others refuse to do so.
In January, Trump had issued an executive order cracking down on sanctuary cities.
“Sanctuary jurisdictions across the United States willfully violate Federal law in an attempt to shield aliens from removal from the United States. These jurisdictions have caused immeasurable harm to the American people and to the very fabric of our Republic,” Trump’s order said.
It is imperative that immigration laws be enforced across the board or America ceases to be a sovereign nation. No one is asking for immigrants to be mistreated, but they must enter the country legally and be screened for diseases and criminal records.
Just the fact that immigrants have entered America “illegally” puts them in violation of the law and if this country is to maintain it’s integrity, we cannot ignore the fact that such violations are a threat to our national security!
