Practically every big city in the United States is a “Sanctuary City” – a place where illegal aliens will never be challenged by law enforcement over their status. Mayors are now coming out of the woodwork to say that their cities will remain such – even though it is against the law.

Donald Trump ran as the law-and-order candidate – and promised to end Sanctuary Cities.

So the battle is on. This was a key promise, so the new President will have to address it. There are a number of things he can do. He would need help from Congress to cut off federal funds to these cities – but he has a mandate and he might be able to do it. He could send in federal agents to beef up immigration law enforcement. Or, he might do as Obama often did, and sue the cities. Best of all, he might charge the mayors and police chiefs with openly aiding and abetting criminal activity.

Note that trump has proposed deporting criminal aliens – the kind that murdered Kate Steinle in San Francisco. That would be one Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez who had a criminal record and had been deported five times. Under Trump’s proposal, she would be alive today. So would Jenny Garcia who was brutally murdered in Austin because of Sanctuary City policies that allowed her killer, David Diaz Morales, to remain here.

A nation of laws and not men – or not?

Liberals as a groups are selective about law enforcement. They enforce the laws they lice and ignore the ones they don’t. It never seems to occur to them that if they don’t like a law, they should try to change the law. If that doesn’t work – they lost. So that law remains in place and must ne enforced.

To a leftist, the law doesn’t matter so much as what they want to accomplish. Liberals in these big cities derive power from the illegal alien constituency – and therefore, they will fight to the end to keep them from deportation. The hope is that they will be legalized and then naturalized, and provide many votes for the Democratic Party.

However, even under Republican President George W. Bush, libs could not get Comprehensive Immigration Reform through – because the people simply do not want it. Bush did. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce did. The Wall Street Journal did. But these elite Republicans all lost along with the Democrats. This is the lesson of Trump. What the people want and what the elites want are often two very different things.

Nutcase big city mayors.

Several of these scofflaws have already promised to defy President Trump on this issue. Chief among them is Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel, who also tried to keep Chik-Fil-A out of Chicago. Emanuel should appreciate the fact that criminal illegals would be Trump’s target. After, his city is under siege day in and day out. Deporting criminal aliens would be a godsend for Chicago. But Emanuel is not intelligent enough to see it.

Other outlaw mayors include Ed Murray of Seattle, New York’s Bill de Blasio, Providence’s Jorge Elorza and Newark’s Ras Baraka. But they are the tip of the loony-mayor iceberg. Expect the same from mayors in Dallas, Houston, Austin, Los Angeles, and so on.

There is nothing wrong with enforcing our laws and deporting criminal aliens.

Lives will be saved. But liberals will be displeased and they don’t like that. Displeased liberals tried to put former Texas Gov. Rick Perry in jail. They have attacked Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Justice Roy Moore in Alabama. They succeeded in putting writer and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay in jail.

If these mayors continue to flout federal law, I hope Trump has his Attorney general go after them with the full force of the law. I hope he sends them to jail.
