The comments and "nays" astound me. It only proves that there is an extremely large portion of the population that haven't a clue as to what is going on in the Country. Sanctuary cities are, besides "protecting" illegal immigrants who, just by being here have broken the law, they are also protecting ILLEGAL Criminals. The president has said, but has not been or has been reported incorrectly, that the illegals he want to deport are the CRIMINALS and GANG MEMBERS who have broken the law with murder, rape, theft, selling drugs, sex trafficking and all other nice activities. He, and I believe that all right thinking people, want them out of the Country. The people who run these cities are guilty of breaking the law and could be arrested, tried, convicted and sent away for a long time. If any one of the "nay" Sayers were caught hiding, or giving aid to outright criminals, they would be just as guilty as that criminal and could also go to jail. Withholding funds is the easiest way. Illegals cost the taxpayers of my State approx $2Billion a year. That is in addition to whatever the Federal Government spends (your and mine tax dollars) in this State. This is money our State could be spending on School, teachers pay etc. and before anyone starts with racist etc I am a first generation American whose both parents. Grandparents on both sides and all Aunts and Uncles on both sides are naturalized citizens. I has a daughter-in-law from the Philippines, a son-in-law from Colombia, a brother-in-law from Italy, the Godfather to both my boys is from Cuba and for 42 years have worked with, for and have had working for me people from Mexico, every Central and South American Country as well as the U.K., Holland, France, Australia, New Zealand, Brunei as well as Oman.
