Fox News: Several GOP States Move to Block Their Own Funding to Sanctuary Cities

A number of GOP states have moved to introduce legislation to block their own state funding to so-called sanctuary cities.

The moves come in conjunction with President Donald Trump's executive order to block federal funding to cities that refuse to comply with federal immigration authorities.

The states include Idaho, Texas, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

Cities nationwide including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Boston, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., have all adopted sanctuary status.


State and Local Elected Officials must stand against Sanctuary Cities

Is your city or county a sanctuary jurisdiction or on the verge of becoming one?

You can make a difference by carefully choosing your state and local elected officials!

Ending “sanctuary cities” is not a partisan issue. It’s a coalition of individuals who believe in the rule of law and who know the difference between right and wrong and fair and unfair.

The inflammatory issue of sanctuary cities in the United States has been a growing problem for years. Inaction by our leaders in Washington, D.C. - like with so many other issues – has made the problem worse. Thanks to President Trump the issue is now front and center and deservedly so.

There are now an estimated 300 sanctuary cities or jurisdictions in our country, with the entire state of California now threatening to become our first “sanctuary state.” So-called “sanctuary campuses” are also popping up around the country.

The bottom line is that state and local elected officials who seek to defy federal immigration laws must be held to account and voted out of office because they are jeopardizing public safety. The Presidential Coalition is looking for state and local candidates who will promise to enforce immigrations laws and publicly state their opposition to sanctuary jurisdictions of any kind.

The Presidential Coalition wants to support and grow the “conservative farm team” in America. If you’re an American who is concerned about the sanctuary city problem, find out who your local elected representatives are and where they stand. Who is your mayor? Who is your county executive? Who are your town or city council members? These offices can make consequential decisions on matters of immigration, law enforcement, and taxpayer funds.

It’s time for our elected officials and office seekers to face some tough facts.

The reason this issue has resonated with so many Americans is because it’s a simple matter of fairness and whether or not we are a nation of laws. People understand things that aren’t fair and they are asking logical questions that deserve answers. Why should taxpayer dollars be spent on benefits for illegal immigrants? Why should federal funds be sent to any city, county, or other jurisdiction that refuses to enforce federal immigration laws?

Folks also understand things that just aren’t right. Millions of people live their lives by obeying the law and taking great pride in the rule of law. When they see some laws being enforced for some and not for others, it cuts right to the heart of our system of government and what it stands for. Is justice really blind and are we truly a nation of laws?

Furthermore, a vast majority of Americans work hard and pay taxes on time. Why should their tax dollars be spent on illegal immigrants - great numbers of whom don’t pay taxes themselves?

President Trump’s executive order to defund sanctuary cities will save U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars. Jurisdictions that continue to defy federal law must be held to account. But taking action on sanctuary cities is only the beginning of the reforms that are necessary to get our illegal immigration problem under control. We must also enforce the current laws that are on the books and, of course, build a sturdy wall at our Southern border. If we don’t have borders, we don’t have a country.

If you know of a state or local candidate who is working to end sanctuary cities, please contact the Presidential Coalition today!

Breitbart: Trump Administration to Publish Crimes Committed by Illegal Aliens in Sanctuary Cities

The Trump administration will publish a list of crimes committed by illegal aliens in sanctuary cities weekly, according to an executive order released Wednesday.

“To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens,” the order reads.

The move will apply pressure to sanctuary cities: Local residents may be outraged when they learn that the gang member, drug trafficker, or the drunk driver that ruined lives is an illegal alien. It lets resistance movements to entrenched political establishments bloom across the country and will force politicians to be responsive.

The Hill: We can stop sanctuary cities

When I publicly expressed my support for Donald Trump during the Republican primaries, I was one of the very first members of Congress to do so. I was impressed by his frank assessment of the troubles facing our country, and most importantly, his willingness to take on the issue of illegal immigration. It is clear that those of us who want to secure our borders and enforce immigration laws will now have an ally in the White House.

My firm stance against illegal immigration is likely why I was elected to Congress in the first place. While mayor of Hazleton, Pa., I became known as the first mayor in the country to pass a local ordinance which cracked down on landlords and businesses that rented to or hired illegal immigrants. I have authored, co-sponsored, or supported any number of bills in Congress dealing with illegal immigration, but one issue in particular stands out as being particularly troublesome: sanctuary cities. I am gratified to know that President Trump shares my view that local jurisdictions should not be able to thumb their noses at our immigration officials.


Support The Conservative Farm Team At All Levels Of Government!

The Presidential Coalition sets goals for 2017-2018.

For over a decade, The Presidential Coalition has been dedicated to growing the conservative “farm team” in America. With the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of United States, our mission continues, but now we are determined and proud to build the conservative Trump farm team!

We are working across all 50 states to rebuild our economy, secure our borders, and restore American greatness in the mold of our new President’s vision!

In 2016 we all witnessed as Donald Trump dismantled the myth of Crooked Hillary’s coronation, took on the broken insider’s system, and won a historic election. Now we must seize this opportunity, build upon President Trump’s tremendous victory, and lay the groundwork needed for more conservative Republican “farm team” victories in 2017 and beyond at the federal, state, and local levels.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enact common sense conservative reforms and that means helping to elect like-minded patriots!

Here at The Presidential Coalition, we believe that a long-lasting conservative majority in America is in reach. We need to make sure we are equipping and electing great conservative Republicans at all levels of government.

“Farm Team” conservatives who agree that in order to make America great again we must:

1) Make America Safe Again by destroying ISIS and securing our borders.

2) Make America Work Again by repealing and replacing terrible job-killing legislation like ObamaCare, cutting taxes and simplifying the tax code, and renegotiating trade deals for American workers.

3) Make America First Again by standing up for our great country and unleashing the spirit of American Exceptionalism.

Together we can grow the conservative Republican “farm team” to support President Trump’s conservative agenda in ways big and small. So whether it’s supporting a great conservative candidate for your local county council or electing great Republican Governors and Attorneys General, you can count on The Presidential Coalition.

As our president and Donald Trump’s Deputy Campaign Manager David Bossie always says,“we want to be the tip of the spear” that helps to defeat our liberal opponents and lead America back to greatness. During Obama’s failed 8-years in the White House, it was principled conservative leadership at the state and local level that helped prevent Obama’s disastrous agenda from totally crippling our country.

We must be prepared to go toe-to-toe with the Democrats who will use every trick in the book to derail President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda. Together we must fight for the conservative pro-growth policies that will restore jobs to our communities, reform a broken Washington, make our neighborhoods safer, and improve our schools. That means supporting great conservative Republican candidates in your community this year!

Cagle Post: Great Day For Religious Liberty

Monday was a wonderful day for religious liberty and freedom. The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case decided in favor of Hobby Lobby. This corporation was fighting against one of the Obamacare mandates stating employers must provide employees with contraception and abortifacient coverage. The Court upheld and used the 1993 bipartisan bill called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) which protects an individual’s right to practice whichever religion he or she may choose as precedent in this particular case. Justice Alito wrote on behalf of the majority in the much-anticipated decision, “We doubt that the Congress that enacted RFRA — or, for that matter, ACA — would have believed it a tolerable result to put family-run businesses to the choice of violating their sincerely held religious beliefs or making all of their employees lose their existing healthcare plans.”

As if there hasn’t been enough controversy coming out of this Administration’s IRS, the most recent debacle is one for the ages. Last Friday, the IRS put out a statement claiming Lois Lerner’s emails from 2011, which are the focal point of the political targeting investigation, have vanished due to a systemic failure of her computer’s hard drive. This was only the beginning, however. Just a few days later, the IRS investigators claimed six additional hard drives, which happened to be a part of the investigation of the IRS targeting of conservative groups as well, seemed to have also failed and the IRS is now claiming their emails are also “gone forever.”

What’s most disturbing about the claims of vanished emails is the fact that the IRS is fully confident the American people are buying their story. Unfortunately for them, we’re not that naïve. For example: Lois Lerner’s sole statement regarding the IRS hard drive crash and her missing emails was, “Sometimes stuff just happens.” Clearly, this is not a woman who cares that this crucial evidence has vanished. Furthermore, it cannot be ruled out that she could have had a hand in the disappearance of these important emails. During the initial hearing of the missing emails, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen stated very calmly that, yes, “the actual hard drive [Lois Lerner’s] after it was determined that it was dysfunctional and that, with experts, no emails could be retrieved, was recycled then destroyed in the normal process.”

It has since been discovered that the IRS did indeed use back-up services from a contracted company named Sonasoft, which is a small Silicon Valley company with connections to – you guessed it – Barack Obama. Even more interesting is the fact that the IRS stopped using Sonasoft almost immediately after Lois Lerner’s hard drive supposedly crashed back in 2011. It would seem that the series of coincidental misfortunes on behalf of the IRS getting its act together, and allowing Congress to complete its investigation of conservative targeting are far more than mere coincidences. However, the arrogance and apparent lawlessness within the IRS are a cause for extreme concern. IRS Commissioner Koskinen has even gone as far as claiming the IRS has “hard drive crashes all the time” and it is due to their “outdated technology” that their systems have these failures. With a budget of $1.8 billion I am very hard-pressed to credit this as even a remotely valid excuse. During Friday’s hearing, Koskinen even went further, asking for pity (which he received from Democrat committee members) because the IRS just doesn’t have the funding to buy adequate technology to keep archives of their employees’ emails.
