President Trump appears to have begun the next stage of his war with the sanctuary cities. Facing new maneuvers from illegal friendly politicians seeking to hold onto these people, he has authorized ICE to directly target these enclaves.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Homan is at the helm of the agency most central to this war. He is as straight up of a Law Enforcement man as they come, and he’s not putting up with anything from politicians like Jerry Brown or Rahm Emmanuel. He is putting everyone on notice as to what is coming.
Defying the Democrats, he unveiled plans to crack down on illegal immigrants by sending more resources and agents directly into the sanctuary cities.
Homan told Washington Examiner on Tuesday that he plans to address “ludicrous” sanctuary cities.
“In the America I grew up in, cities didn’t shield people who violated the law,” Homan told the publication. “What I want to get is a clear understanding from everybody, from the congressmen to the politicians to law enforcement to those who enter the country illegally, that ICE is open for business.”
“We’re going to enforce the laws on the books without apology, we’ll continue to prioritize what we do,” Homan continued. “But it’s not OK to violate the laws of this country anymore, you’re going to be held accountable.”
“You can like President Trump, not like him, like his policies, not like his policies, but one thing no one can argue with is the effect they’ve had,” said Homan.
He also said he’s been given the green light to hire 10,000 new immigration agents to get his manpower up to where it needs to be to take on these lawbreaking cities.
What a travesty that politicians, who take an oath to defend the Constitution, have trampled on it out of cowardice or misplaced compassion. It shouldn’t take such a drastic effort to reverse this situation
For too long the politicians have turned a blind eye to one of the most fundamental tasks any country must do to protect it’s citizens – enforce the border. Indeed, there is no such thing in history as a nation without a border. The border is much more than an arbitrary line on the map. It’s a powerful symbol that signifies an area belonging to a people with a culture and sovereignty. It marks the limit of the Nation’s jurisdiction and must be respected.
President Trump has had his eyes wide open about this travesty. Let’s hope he has the time and necessary political support to see this through. One thing is for sure. We will never “Make America Great Again” if we don’t re-establish the rule of law in America. And that goes for the politicians as well.
