Jeff Sessions targets more sanctuary cities

The Department of Justice sent letters to 29 so-called sanctuary cities on Wednesday, demanding officials show they are cooperating with immigration enforcement laws by Dec. 8. The targets include Washington, D.C., several cities or counties in California, major state capitals like Denver, and entire states.

President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have made jurisdictions that limit their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement a conspicuous target from the beginning in their crackdown on illegal immigration, and this is only the latest example. Sessions sent nine letters in April making similar demands.

“Jurisdictions that adopt so-called ‘sanctuary policies’ also adopt the view that the protection of criminal aliens is more important than the protection of law-abiding citizens and of the rule of law,” Sessions said Monday in a press release. “I urge all jurisdictions found to be potentially out of compliance in this preliminary review to reconsider their policies that undermine the safety of their residents.”

  1. That’s great until the next day when some liberal judge in a place far away decrees Sessions actions as illegal and stops the actions of the Justice Department. Someting is VERY wrong here!!

  2. I meant “SOMETHING” CPR needs an “edit” button.

  3. I say — DOJ, bring it on!
    California knowingly asked for it, deserves it, hopefully California will get it! At this point, it appears the only hope and way for California to change its political nonsense is from the outside, not from within.
