As we all know by now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave sanctuary cities a deadline, December 8, to come into compliance with certain immigration laws they’ve been skirting around for years, or face a loss of Federal funding. And, as we all know, a liberal judge from California has permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order on defunding sanctuary cities from Federal funding.
President Trump campaigned on the promise of making America safe again, and he’s trying as hard as he can, but these judges who legislate from the bench continue to prove to be obstructionists.
Many people claim that defunding sanctuary cities will have no affect on crime or safety, but we only need to look at what happened in Phoenix, Arizona once that city decided to no longer be a sanctuary city.

Folks, it’s common sense. If criminals, especially criminals who are in our country illegally, know they can find safe haven in certain cities, that’s where they will flock to in numbers. When you take away their sanctuary, they no longer feel protected, and they don’t congregate in mass, and as we can see from what happened in Phoenix, those cities become safer.
