Last quote about Sanctuary cities

Hal Dardick - The Chicago Tribune
The city plans to file the paperwork 'first thing on Monday morning,' officials said. … There's also a possibility of other sanctuary cities taking the city's side. Although [Jeff Sessions's] threat to withhold money from the Edward Byrne Justice Assistance grant program from sanctuary cities is not new, the Justice Department late Thursday released conditions for new grant applications[.] … The conditions include complying with a federal law that bars restrictions on local police sharing immigration status information.feedback

President Trump would have us believe that crime has reached epidemic proportions and is related to so-called sanctuary cities (a term that has no definition and is therefore of limited value anyway). Neither view is right. Now, a substantial study on crime in the 30 biggest U.S. cities shows how wrong he is.feedback

If California is able to do this and Trump isn't able to do much to prevent them, that will give momentum to other sanctuary cities.feedback

Ed Rogers

Democrats are weeping and gnashing their teeth about Attorney General Sessions’s commitment to enforcing the nation’s immigration laws. During Monday’s White House press briefing, he put so-called sanctuary cities on notice, arguing that if they continue to harbor criminals and ignore the law, there will be severe consequences. The Justice Department, he announced, is prepared to “claw back any funds awarded to a jurisdiction” that violates federal statute. By holding $4.1 billion in grants over the heads of state and local officials, Attorney General Sessions is taking a step in the right direction to protect everyday Americans and keep them safe. God bless Jeff Sessions.feedback

Joe Crowley

The president needs to find a new presidency within himself. Suggesting that he's going to negotiate with us, and simultaneously asking for cuts in the budget that will hurt our constituents tremendously, or cutting funding for 'sanctuary cities,' or going after the undocumented in a way that's causing unbelievable stress in our communities, is not going to work.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I think the last poll I saw on this issue, on sanctuary cities, was somewhere in the 80 percent that American people don't support sanctuary cities, they don't want their tax dollars used to finance people who are in this country illegally.feedback

Jeff Sessions

The Department of Justice will require that jurisdictions seeking or applying for DOJ grants to certify compliance with [U.S. Code 1373] as a condition of receiving those awards. Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended. I strongly urge our nation's states and cities and counties to consider carefully the harm they are doing to our citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws, and to rethink these policies. When cities and states refuse to enforce immigration laws, our nation is less safe. We have simply got to end this policy.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

While the media kvelled over President Trump’s “tone” in his address to Congress, the centerpiece as it was in the campaign remains a xenophobic, false narrative about immigrants. No subject took up as much time in so many different variations - illegal immigrants, the wall to keep out immigrants, sanctuary cities that conceal immigrants, drugs brought in by immigrants, crime caused immigrants, a special office to help victims of crimes by immigrants. It is fair to say Trump, his base and both Stephen K. Bannon and Stephen Miller are obsessed with the topic.feedback

Juliet Stumpf

The pathway to cutting federal funding to sanctuary cities is pretty cloudy.feedback
