WATCH: AG Barr Takes Aim At ‘Sanctuary’ Cities That Ignore Federal Immigration Law

Written by K. Walker on February 12, 2020

The DOJ is cracking down on any jurisdiction that is refusing to cooperate with federal immigration law. It’s about time.

So-called “sanctuary” advocates claim that it’s compassionate to ignore the unlawful immigration activity of individuals and conceal that knowledge from Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

The “sanctuary” status also is a thumb in the eye of legal immigrants who don’t take the risk of walking across the border and instead follow the rules.

The Department of Justice under Bill Barr is filing lawsuits against sanctuary cities, counties, and states who flout federal immigration law.

Currently, the Justice Department has filed several lawsuits already.

The DOJ is suing:

Attorney General William Barr announced Monday that there will be a “significant escalation” from the government against “sanctuary” cities, counties and states, including lawsuits against localities opposed to the Trump administration’s hard-line immigration policies.

The administration is attempting to crack down on local and state governments that have pledged to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. Barr announced lawsuits against the state of New Jersey and King County, Wash., which includes Seattle.

“Unfortunately, in various jurisdictions, so-called ‘progressive’ politicians are jeopardizing the public’s safety by putting the interests of criminal aliens before those of law-abiding citizens,” Barr said.

“These policies are textbook examples of misguided ideology triumphing over commonsense law enforcement,” he added.

Man, I love that guy!

Lou Dobbs of Fox Business and Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton discuss the move:

This is a good thing. Our immigration system is broken and just allowing illegal immigration isn’t the right way to fix it.

Let’s Make Immigration Legal Again!
