The time has come for a real discussion about these cities. Just how much Federal funding has gone to keep these "cities" functioning?

Should our budget keep and protect people who are not citizens of this country and, by definition, have broken our laws?

We have a deficit and many want more and more government intervention into their affairs, costing astronomical amounts of money. We have a deficit. We have to cut back and foolishly susidizing those illegals that broke our laws to come is nonsensical.

How do you feel?

The funds saved from allowing Sanctuary cities could go for more ARMED ICE officials and ARMED Border Patrol agents.

DOJ Rewards Law-Breaking Sanctuary Cities, States with $342 Mil in “Grants”

Apparently this doesn’t apply to local governments that support the president’s broad open borders policies, even when they violate federal law. The DOJ doled out $342,168,401 to 10 sanctuary states and cities that proudly reject federal claims for criminal illegal aliens earmarked for removal, according to the agency’s independent watchdog.

Among them is Connecticut, a trailblazer in the sanctuary movement that received more than $69 million in grants from the DOJ. Connecticut has long protected illegal immigrants with sanctuary policies and even offers them special drivers’ licenses, known as Drive Only. The state also gives illegal aliens discounted tuition at public colleges and universities and authorities work hard to restrict the feds from deporting illegal immigrants. Last year an illegal immigrant who had spent 17 years in prison for attempted murder stabbed a 25-year-old woman to death in Norwich, a city of about 40,000 residents. The murderer had been earmarked for deportation at least three times.

$342 M,, that would pay for the wall and have money left over for ICE and Border Patrol! That worked out very well.... Wish I was on Trumps Advisory Board! ;)

I also feel that there should be a law punishing companies from hiring illegals. It should be the cost of a plane ticket back to their former country...for the entire family if all are illegal.

Funding should be cut off from every single State that is breaking the illegal alien laws.
We have to stop this coddling and ignoring our laws.

One thing the American Citizen can do is stop visiting there. Tourist dollars are big bucks. How long will these cities last if the air terminals, car rentals, hotels, eateries survive without the tourists? Then big business starts to leave and the American population decides to relocate. There goes real estate. About that time the Op's factor should start to kick in.

NO Federal funding.

NO sanctuary cities either.

Too easy like in San Francisco for Mexican felons to hide there and shoot pedestrians.

Precisely.

I do not visit the Communist states of Calif, Ore, or Wash State anymore.

No reason to.

:lol:

All estimates of the cost of a "wall" say that it'll cost exponentially more than 342 million dollars.

Not to mention, the idea that the DOJ would stop handing out grants to the states you don't like is ludicrous.

I'm sure they're all very upset by that.

You've really stuck it to them!

I recall the estimated amolunt for the wall has been $100M. Grants should not be given to cities that are breaking the law.

Those places generate the funds that the fed gets

Bull.

Cities consume Federal funds more than they pay taxes.

Cutting off their funds is the only language they (Democrats) understand.

I'd love to see that "estimate".

Just the amount of concrete needed would cost more than a billion dollars.

And there's no law against sanctuary cities.
