Jeff Sessions Sends Second Warnings

Posted January 24th, 2018 by Iron Mike

He is at heart a Southern Gentleman,  so his instinct is to be kind and gentle – at firstAttorney General Jeff Sessions has sent letters to 23 jurisdictions – so-called “Sanctuary Cities and States”,  – that without voluntary co-operation and compliance with existing law,  – subpoenas will follow.

And after subpoenas,  big burly guys with handcuffs….

At issue is part of the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act – where § 1373 prohibits local and state governments from passing so-called “non-cooperation” laws.  Their receipt of certain federal funding is contingent upon their compliance with § 1373.

Sessions just put these 23 jurisdictions on NOTICE:

States:  California,  ● Illinois,  ● Oregon

Counties:

Cook County, Il  Bernalillo County, NM   ●  King County, WA

Monterey County, CA  ●  Sacramento County, CA

San Francisco (county) CA  ●  Sonoma County, CA

Cities:

Albany, NY, Berkeley, CA, ● Burlington, VT

Chicago, IL, ● Denver, CO, ● Freemont, CA

Jackson, MS, ● Lawrence, MA, ● Los Angeles, CA

Louisville, KY, ● New York City, ● San Francisco, CA

Watsonville, CA, ● West Palm Beach, FL

You can expect governors and mayors to fume, bluster, and posture before TV cameras.

And when they fail to answer Jeff’s very polite letter,  – you can expect the subpoenas to come flying in,….and they may scoop up way more than just immigration stuff,….like the usual Democrat graft and corruption….

There will be many court filings by these Sanctuary governors and mayors – all seeking to delay the inevitable,…and hoping for a big Democrat sweep in November.

But we kind’a saw how that will end on Monday on the Senate Floor,  – when Schumer could only muster 16 left-wing holdout votes….

We should watch Mayor Rivera’s reactions closely,  because he has a major MS-13 gang problem and a major fentanyl problem in his once-wealthy city.

He is harboring hordes of illegals, and they are hardly “Dreamers” or Rhodes Scholars….. If fact – just last December 2016,  a 16-year old youth was decapitated in Lawrence – by another 16-year old youth

Rivera should be begging for help!

But when and where have you ever seen Democrats really care about the lives and the safety of their poorest constituents…?  

Rivera is only worried about HIS safety – and his pension!

    UNREAL. Seems like every day some illegal, or illegal gang activity, explodes with more and more viciousness and impact on every day Americans. This stuff has to stop. Won’t be easy nor fun,,,bring on the big burly lads with cuffs, batons, stun guns and yes bullet launchers.

    The issue is more basic than the 1996 Act. In the US Constitution, Article I, Section 8, the federal Congress is granted all authority over laws concerning immigration and naturalization, and those laws are to be uniform throughout the land.

    The states AGREED to those conditions when they RATIFIED the Constitution (or applied for statehood, after 1789). There is NO excuse for trying to squawk about “states’ rights” and trying to make their own rules. Haul the scofflaws out in handcuffs.

    (States, not being individuals, of course have NO rights – they are granted privileges by the citizenry.)

    Interestingly, this 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act was signed by Bill Clinton. Granted, he was saddled with a Republican House and a Republican Senate, however minimally majoritied, but lacking 60 Republicans in the Senate, there must have been enough Democrat Senators supporting the bill that Bubba couldn’t veto it. Maybe at that time Democrats could think and cared more about Americans than crimaliens.

    My how times have changed….

    Democrats have said publically they do not care about loss of federal funding. Only criminal prosecution will make them take notice.

    It is past time for hardball. Jail the lawbreaking politicians.

    It is a blessing that President Trump and his Administration are willing to do what is right and enforce the laws of the land. the mayors and governors of sanctuary locations are acting unconstitutionally. They are defying our federal law and the US constitution. Sanctuary jurisdictions remain a significant public safety problem throughout the country. They are illegal, violate federal law and pose a great danger to us all. President Trump always puts Americans first, the safety of our citizens is his priority. Thankfully we are no longer coddling criminals, and our law enforcement is not forced to stand down and turn a blind eye to illegal immigrants.
    G-d bless President Trump, and G-d bless America!
