Several towns, cities and counties around the nation are caving to President Trump's threat to pull funding, and abandoning their "sanctuary" pledges to shield illegal immigrants from federal authorities.
Dayton, Ohio, dropped a policy that restricted the citys cooperation with immigration officials pursuing illegal immigrants arrested for misdemeanors or felony property crimes, according to the Dayton Daily News. Police Chief Richard Biehl said federal authorities will no longer be impeded by the city when pursuing illegal immigrants being held by his department.
Other communities that have dropped policies of shielding illegal immigrant suspects from Immigration and Customs Enforcement include Miami-Dade and Dayton, are Saratoga, N.Y., Finney County, Kan., and Bedford, Penn., according to The Center for Immigration Studies, which keeps a list of sanctuary communities.
We are reviewing policy changes at a multitude of other jurisdictions as well, said Marguerite Telford, CISs director of communications, who said the organization is being inundated by officials on its sanctuary map who want to be taken off.

Next, look into the resettlement bounties of 2K per refugee paid to church-linked operations. Obama completely perverted GWB’s idea of public-private charity operations.
Obey the law. That simple. Renegade obama’s days of lawlessness are over
I hope Phoenix caves next week when the city council votes.
Mayor Stanton is a huge lib who is all for Phoenix being a sanctuary city.
The new sheriff is here.
What happens when an out-of-control federal black-robed tyrant says that Trump CAN’T defund these cities, because... “constitution”... or something.
Carrot, or stick. All depends on whom is wielding it and what the agenda is. Cities have become whores. FedGov the pimps.
This needs to stop!
Let the Musical Sanctuaries game begin!
Concentrating them will make the deportation job much easier.
PHx will cave before L.A does. Our mayor is a gutless lib wuss.
Every official that protects illegal aliens from our laws should be charged criminally with harboring illegal aliens.
Yep, and am really looking forward to it. :)
It’s amazing how a firm hand can bring the petulant brats in line.
We have a coup on our hands
BILLIONS will be cut off.
I sure hope so, all the better.
They should be allowed to reapply for Feral aid in 5 years. Enjoy your bad decisions until then.
I hope President Trump is working on this, but it will take Congress’ efforts. In the upcoming budget, just strike funds to all cities and States that are not used directly for Federal programs (think highways - but not bike paths), take the spending cuts to the bottom line. This is 1) a good thing on principle 2) avoids another nonsense lawsuit by commie’s if funding is cut to some/most big cities.
Of course, cutting all Federal programs needs to happen anyway and is on top of this.
Funding of States and Cities are local problems and the costs should not be ‘mutualized” across the entire nation.
