How 'sanctuary cities' are reacting to Trump's crackdown on undocumented immigrants - World - CBC News

I can't wait for these cities to lose lots of federal dollars for breaking federal laws for aiding and abetting illegals.

Not to be rude, but I am so happy how powerless the liberals are. For at least 2 years, the conservative and rightfully so will rule the roost.

I also love the fact that the supreme court could become very, very conservative and lots of new, wonderful conservative federal judges.

As a Democrat/liberal, those cities SHOULD lose federal funding for hiding illegals. Guess that might take the wind outa your sails but many liberals feel the same way. We are not in lock step with the extreme left OR the extreme right.

I hope they follow through and these cities lose the federal funding. Part of me thinks that our new conservative leaders won't cut federal aid to these cities that intentionally violate federal laws but maybe I will be surprised and they will follow through for the sake of the country.

I was just in Los Angeles and it is evident that the hopeless basket-case of a city is basically just scraping by and believe me it will certainly and rightfully put that city in a massive budget mess if the federal government cuts funding because their city violates federal laws intentionally.

They already have a massive pension and budget mess in Los Angeles without the loss of federal aid. Will be interesting to see how bad it can get.

New York City and some of the liberal cities like Seattle and Denver could lose lots of federal money and could hardly feel it though.

Chicago and Los Angeles are the worst of the worst when it comes to the number and ruthlessness of the illegal immigrants. The heroin epidemic in the states like Indiana and Ohio is because of Chicago's sanctuary city policies and half of Los Angeles looks like a third-world country.
