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.

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.

Breitbart.com: I Second That Amendment

The Second Amendment is second to only one.

It is widely accepted that the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the most important amendment in our sacred Bill of Rights. I wholeheartedly agree. Freedom of speech, press, religion, peaceful assembly, and petitioning the government represent the very underpinnings of our American democracy.

Cagle Post: The Case Against Chuck Hagel For Secretary of Defense

It is very rare in Washington these days to see bipartisanship, but when President Obama nominated former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel to be the next Secretary of Defense, a chorus of opposition sprung up across party lines. Chuck Hagel is flatly the wrong choice to lead our nation’s military at this time. One just has to look at his questionable statements and actions over the past years to understand why he is the wrong choice.
