RUSH: Well here’s something else to add needless tension in America. California announced that they’re suing the Trump Administration over sanctuary cities. San Francisco already has its own lawsuit. And Rahm Emanuel just led Chicago down the same path.
Announcing the suit, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra went after President Trump. He said that the president picked the wrong fight when he threatened to defund local law enforcement agencies who don’t comply with federal immigration law.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not backing down. When Chicago sued, Sessions said the Trump Administration won’t give away grant dollars to city governments that proudly violate the rule of law and protect criminal aliens at the expense of public safety. Sessions says this is a simple equation. They will either comply with the law or they won’t get taxpayer dollars.
Now, only a fool would predict what the courts will do, especially with all the left wing judicial activists posing as judges in the lower federal courts.
But I know what they should do. State and local governments must comply with federal immigration law. The only reason sanctuary cities have operated outside the law is that nobody in the federal government had the political will to stand up to these insurgent mayors and governors.
Until now. Keep your powder dry, folks. It’s gonna get interesting.
