I think the Seattle folks have been smoking too much weed.

I like the idea of sanctuary cities.

Just get all the illegals to move to them, wall them all in, and then proceed with processing.

No need to bother distinguishing them from the legal citizens who support them.

They are all criminals.

Every country has immigration laws. Without borders, you can't have a country. It's not mean to establish laws who can and cannot cross those borders, and establish guidelines on how it should be done - legally.

Yes, we are all God's children. That doesn't mean that the entire world is free from man-made laws and that everyone has a right to migrate wherever they want with no regard for the law.

Seeing these liberal mayors fight so hard for illegals that aren't even citizens is just nuts.

I could see this backfiring . Especially when more people become aware of the crime committed by illegals which has mostly been covered up by the media .

These cities are going to have to be occupied by federal troops. This is an act of civil war and should be treated appropriately.

Right and it's not just that these people are here . They are also using our resources . If every illegal was self sufficient paid for their own kids education and healthcare AND committed no crimes it would be one thing but that's not the case .

You have the pro sanctuary crowd even crying now when the criminals aliens are deported .

I wouldn't be surprised . So far it's all talk . The sanctuary cities are trying to say Trump admin is being "mean" they have really taken it too far with protecting illegals .

Agreed and HOW!

I'd start with LA; the rest of the sanc cities would change their tune real fast IMHO.

L.A is the biggest one . One thing I worry about is that a lot of these other little sanctuary cities will fold but L.A will remain a sanctuary city ... then they all come to L.A

This would further destroy the city .

Is there a federal law requiring law enforcement or government officials of states/local jurisdictions to detain and report illegal immigrants?
