Fearing a loss of millions of dollars for defying immigration authorities, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Thursday ordered county jails to comply with federal immigration detention requests effectively gutting the countys position as a sanctuary for immigrants in the country illegally.
Gimenez cited an executive order signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump that threatened to cut federal grants for any counties or cities that dont cooperate fully with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Since 2013, Miami-Dade has refused to indefinitely detain inmates who are in the country illegally and wanted by ICE not based on principle, but because the federal government doesnt fully reimburse the county for the expense.

Wow... Miami-Dade folded fast.
Doesn’t want to lose its federal cash cow. So much for principled defiance.

Miami-Dade mayor orders jails to comply with Trump crackdown on sanctuary counties
That’s the way you get people to comply—hit them where it hurts. Threaten to cost them money. It is the way that lawyers have extorted billions from corporations, insurance companies and individuals even when those entities were guiltless and not negligent of anything.
Wow! More winning in 4 days than in all my 45 years.

When they realize how much they will lose in $$$$, others will acquiesce.
Why are these cities/counties so pro-illegals? Someone has to pay for it. Who is paying? And what benefits are the cities/counties getting from the horde of illegals?
ANOTHER Trump victory. They’ve been coming by the dozens these days.
Dade Co. will probably get some extra consideration from the Trump administration for playing ball. Carrots and sticks.
If this is true for Miami -- I do think this is a fair charge at least for states like Alabama given the years of neglect by the feds in letting illegals into the country. The states have had to suck it up and have even been impeded from enforcing immigration laws. Of course some areas with their sanctuaries have helped the leftists. In any event a new sheriff is in town. Rejoice.
