Leaders of “sanctuary cities” do not care about the rule of law.
They’re okay living with lawbreakers and illegal aliens.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen won’t have it, confirming the DHS is pursuing charges against said “leaders.”
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.
“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.
More from Nielsen’s hearing, where Democrat Sen. Cory Booker lashed out for a good while – per Washington Examiner:
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., was enraged during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday and admitted he was “seething with anger” over President Trump’s alleged “shithole comments” and a Cabinet official’s statement that she did not recall the incident.
“I had tears of rage,” Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump’s “shithole countries” remark last week. “And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they’re worried about what happened in the White House …”

We either have a country that follows the laws or we don’t.
Good on the DHS.
Good on President Trump!
