Trump Attacks Sanctuary Cities After Reviewing Border Wall Prototypes; People Shout “Build That Wall” …
What to know about sanctuary cities
During President Donald J. Trump’s visit to California yesterday to examine prototypes for a border wall with Mexico, he explained the danger of “sanctuary cities” that refuse to cooperate with lawful Federal immigration enforcement.
“California’s sanctuary policies are illegal and unconstitutional and put the safety and security of our entire nation at risk,” the President tweeted. “Thousands of dangerous & violent criminal aliens are released as a result of sanctuary policies.”
A few important facts about sanctuary cities:
When sanctuary city officials warn illegal aliens about possible upcoming enforcement activities, they allow criminals to prepare themselves—and thus endanger innocent bystanders.
Sanctuary policies in California have allowed the release of numerous criminals charged with serious crimes who could continue to harm communities.
If Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials cannot arrest criminals in the controlled environments of police stations or jails, they must perform these duties in workplaces, in residences, or on the streets.
