On Saturday, President Trump gave his weekly address, where he put the focus primarily on “lawless sanctuary jurisdictions.”
In recent weeks, there have been disgraceful situations where leaders of U.S. cities have prevented the Federal Agency I.C.E from carrying out their duties of removing dangerous illegal immigrants from communities. In the video, President Trump voiced his determination to put a handle on the situation that he feels is a danger to America. Video Below
Trump started out by saying, “Protecting the safety and well-being of American citizens is my highest duty as President. Yet lawless sanctuary jurisdictions are nullifying federal, obstructing immigration enforcement, and releasing thousands of criminal aliens into U.S. communities to prey on innocent victims.”
Trump claimed the sanctuary jurisdictions are harboring drug dealers, killers, rapists, sex offenders, gang members and other criminals. He then gave examples of specific situations involving leaders refusing to comply with I.C.E that occurred in primarily in California, as well as in New York City and Denver.
Trump said, specifically, “the state of California is sheltering dangerous criminals in a brazen and lawless attack on our constitutional system of government.” He claimed California is in “open defiance of federal law” and they don’t care about crime, death, killing, and robberies…the things that “you and I care about.”
As a solution, Trump said he is calling for “a block in funds to jurisdictions that shield dangerous criminals.” And followed by saying, “It is time to end blood shed brought about by reckless sanctuary policy. And it is time to save American lives and American cities.” (Video Below)
