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!

The Presidential Coalition Supporting Conservative Ken Cuccinelli For Virginia Governor

The Presidential Coalition, an affiliate of Citizens United, is supporting Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli for Governor of Virginia. The Presidential Coalition has contributed $50,000 to the campaign and will take on an active role as the race progresses this year. The Presidential Coalition has been a long-time supporter of Ken Cuccinelli.

“Terry McAuliffe is far too out of the mainstream with his liberal agenda for the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Terry’s checkered past as a Democrat fundraiser during the scandal plagued Clinton years will only turnoff Virginia voters this November.

“Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will build on the commonsense policies of Governor Bob McDonnell and continue Virginia on a path towards increased prosperity. During his term as Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli has been a leading advocate for small businesses and has fought the overreach of the Obama Administration when it comes to the government takeover of health care. Virginians needs a governor who will lead by their own virtue not what the Democrat establishment in Washington tells them to do.”


The Presidential Coalition Launches Annual Turkey Drive For Military Families

The Presidential Coalition, an affiliate of Citizens United, has started its annual turkey drive for America’s men and women in uniform. This year, The Presidential Coalition will be providing turkeys to military families at five bases across the country.

“Our men and women in uniform sacrifice so much for our country every day and to help them just a little bit by providing them turkeys for their holiday meals is the least that we can do,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “I want to thank all those Americans who are contributing to this effort to provide meals to those who are protecting our freedom.”

If you would like to join this effort, please call 1-800-754-3610.


The Presidential Coalition Supports Chris Nybo In Illinois’ 24th District Primary For State Senate

The Presidential Coalition, an affiliate of Citizens United, is contributing $3,000 to Republican Chris Nybo’s campaign for Illinois’ 24th State Senate District. The primary election will be held March 20th.

“Chris Nybo will fight for the pro-growth economic policies that promote job creation in Springfield,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “The people of the 24th District deserve new representation in the Illinois Senate and Chris Nybo will provide the important leadership that is desperately needed. ”

“Nybo’s opponent, incumbent Republican Kirk Dillard, was part of President Obama’s campaign in 2008 when he participated in a television ad vouching for Obama’s fraudulent record of bipartisanship. Dillard’s lack of judgment in supporting President Obama and his Big Government agenda should be an automatic disqualifier for re-election. The people of Illinois deserve fresh leadership in the Senate, and Chris Nybo will fill that void.”


The Presidential Coalition Welcomes The New Progressive Caucus In The Virginia Legislature

						

The Presidential Coalition, an affiliate of Citizens United, today welcomed the creation of the "Progressive Caucus" in the Virginia Legislature. The Presidential Coalition will be active in this year's Virginia state elections and will follow the Progressive Caucus's activities closely.

"Virginia is a Conservative state, and the Progressive Caucus in the Virginia Legislature will attempt to force the failed liberal philosophy of President Obama and Democrat National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine on the people of Virginia," said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. "It will be the goal of The Presidential Coalition to make the newly formed Progressive Caucus much smaller after this year's Virginia state elections, and we look forward to making that happen."
