San Francisco sued President Donald Trump on Tuesday, claiming an executive order that cuts funding from immigrant-protecting “sanctuary cities” is unconstitutional and a “severe invasion of San Francisco’s sovereignty.”

The federal government cannot “put a gun to the head of localities,” City Attorney Dennis Herrera said, arguing that the order violates states’ rights and the law.

  1. What these liberal morans (Ed Lee-Mayor of S.F.) fail to realize, the Constitution is in place for the citizens of the United States of America, not the illegal aliens who have broken the law coming here and broken the law by staying here and are bleeding we the tax payers dry by giving them free school, free health care, welfare payments, etc.. When the illegals are loaded on the bus for their native country, load the liberal politicians and bleeding heart “protesters” as well.

  2. Mayor Lee, don’t spend that check before you cash it (or even receive it).

    A-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HAW!
    All the federal executive has done is to deny federal money forthcoming to the governments of state and local office holders blatantly violating the federal Constitution. Why, sedition charges aren’t even being filed……..yet.
    (and there is no office immunity from that high crime)

  4. Are we all going to be “re-educated” in liberal-speak? Mayor Lee is a character right out of “1984.” What’s next? Repeal the law of gravity?
