Posted on 04/06/2017 7:31:37 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
Mayor Virgil Bernero (D) of Lansing, Michigan debated Tucker Carlson on the legitimacy of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' plan to withhold federal funds from cities that won't enforce federal immigration law.
Carlson reported that despite Sessions' warnings, Lansing voted to become a sanctuary city, and he asked Bernero when it was OK to defy any federal law in such a way.
Bernero said that it is never proper to do so, and added that his executive order on the topic abides by federal law.
He invited Sessions and President Trump to advise him anytime on how to increase public safety in Lansing, but said he would never "federalize" his police force to become an immigration enforcer.

This idiot mayor was on last night. What a POS. Tucker was disgusting toward the end of the video. Anyone else get to see it?
Disgusted* Sorry for the typo.
Yes, saw it. The guy was extremely slimy. How can cities vote in people like this?
Lansing must be a rat strong hold.
I wonder if he gets warm fuzzies every time he tosses around his racist lines. I think that it is called “white guilt” and deprecation. Weird.
And tossing around his racist statements does absolutely nothing to solve the problems of inner cities and poorer areas. Actually, it does more damage because it offers excuses.
The real goal is to divert attention away from the real problems that no one want to discuss. Why? because that would mean that all of the Left’s grand plan is an utter failure and they might have to admit it.
People like the crass Mayor Balero would sell out their heritage and culture for a bowl of political porridge.
Tucker was disgusted.
The Demoncrats appeal is to the no information voters.
He is one of the many reasons I don’t visit Lansing if at all possible. Total disaster.
If he selects which laws to enforce against his friends and foes for political expediency he needs to be arrested. This mayor has confessed to his crime, lock him up.
Politicians and foreign invaders are not held liable for the crimes they commit.
Tucker had enough of this clown when the clown asked Tucker “when were you ever pulled over for driving while being white”?
This clown wants “brownie points” from his leftist buddies.
I fixed the typo above.
The new tactic is they are following the law as written. IOW, they do not respond to ICE detainers but will hold people on warrants. That is the democrap mantra these days.
The racial breakdown in Lansing is 54% White, 23% black and 13% hispanic. The rest are asian and multi racial.
That mayor was a complete wuss. “who has walked in our white shoes”. Just another social justice warrior.
The country is lost if we keep these toads on board.
I couldn’t find it .... I do like Tucker. I bet he was ticked off.
Tucker played him like a fiddle. It was great.
Tucker is my favorite. I enjoy Kennedy on Fox Business also.
