President Trump caught flak from the “mainstream” media during a presidential debate when he promised to deport “bad hombres” that came into our country illegally.
But Trump was swept into office campaigning to build the wall and enforce immigration laws.
The Trump administration has threatened to pull federal funding from so-called “Sanctuary” cities.
Miami-Dade in Florida would stand to lose about $355 million in federal funds if they were to keep their “Sanctuary” city status.
In a 9-to-3 vote, Miami-Dade County officials formally dropped it’s “Sanctuary” city status for illegal immigrants.
Recently, Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez instructed county jails to detain inmates sought for deportation by the federal government, instead of releasing them back on the streets.
Miami is one of the first major cities to change their tune.
But there are hundreds of cities and counties that count themselves as sanctuaries including every county in California and Colorado, and major cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Boston, and New York City.
In 2015, an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times murdered Kate Steinle in the “Sanctuary” city of San Fransisco.
The repeat drug felon had been held in a San Fransisco City Jail just weeks earlier.
But instead of holding him for deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, city officials released him on the streets.
