We welcome people — whether you’re from Poland or Pakistan, whether you’re from Ireland or India or Israel and whether you’re from Mexico or Moldovia where my grandfather came from. You are welcome in Chicago as you pursue the American dream,” the mayor said.

Nothing about illegal entry, and he throws in Poland, Ireland, and Israel just for grins.
It was a 20 year process when the left claimed to call Illegal aliens illegal aliens was racist. Now here we are. Dummies. Stay strong President Trump. Please stay strong in the face of those who choose to oppress freedom and rights of True naturalized citizens and Born Americans. The barbarians are at the gate. Fight them off.

The Federal Government needs to come and pick those in question up and deal with them or they need released. I wouldn't want my city wasting these kinds of funds because the federal government drags it's feet.

The party's over for illegal aliens; especially when a "Hispanic" city turns against their kind. Miami won't be the 1st big city to take care of business, others WILL fall in line like as in real soon IMHO.

What I worry about is cities peddling defiance just for the sake of defiance. Trump is associated with immigration, which means the cities who voted against Trump are going to be 100% against his immigration policies (even if they are to simply to follow existing law) not because it's right or wrong but because they're still ticked they lost the election. Half their electorate confusing illegal immigration with racism and legal immigration just makes matters worse.

For the umpteenth time. There is NO federal law that requires states to enforce laws the Constitution specifically lays on the federal government.

The only laws that have been broken here has been on the part of the federal government. So far Trump hasn't fully enforced them either. Yes, it's too early to call him out on this but enforcement is in his lap now, not the cities or states.

This is interesting to watch. Every country has a right to enforce their immigration policies. However, the types of crackdowns being implemented under Trump have generally been directed to those who are not white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant (especially the former characteristic). But people should see how the other half of the U.S. feels...true colors.

As far as Gimenez, he is a Cuban-American (and white) so he did not have the typical experience of legal or illegal immigrants. His legal status was nothing short of a handout.

Claiming racism has failed. The (D)'s ran on that and failed miserably. If we tossed every white Anglo Saxon protestant that is here illegally tomorrow nobody would notice any difference.

The idea that this is entirely the fault of the federal government and its Trumps to deal with, not the states or cities is valid and will work.

States and cities are struggling to balance their budgets the way it is. Are people willingly going to pay higher taxes to arrest, feed and house illegals? No.

All the mayor has to say is fine, it's going to cost us X millions to assist, we are going to raise taxes X percent to cover that.

Those who generally support the (R)'s will start howling

Screw those who are outraged. The law is the law. You don't get to pick & choose which laws you obey & which ones you don't. If the whiners, hissers and self-loathing weasels on the left don't like our immigration laws, let them lobby to have them changed LEGALLY. Don't just break the law, or encourage others to break the laws, you don't like.

Political furor erupted Friday against Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez for requiring local jails to detain immigrants in the country illegally at the behest of the federal government, effectively abandoning Miami-Dade’s stance as a “sanctuary” county.

Immigration advocates descended on County Hall, staging a protest — called on short notice — of more than 100 people that forced an extraordinary lockdown of the Stephen P. Clark Center in downtown Miami to keep the demonstrators out.

“Hey, Gimenez, shame on you!” Miami labor union organizer Kathy Bird Carvajal shouted into a megaphone. “You are an immigrant, too.”

Isn't he upholding the law?

A person who is in the USA illegally IMHO can't be considered an immigrant as their status is illegal.
