Most Americans - "We Don't Like or Want Sanctuary Cities"
Once again, the Democrats that run our cities, like Lost Angeles and Chicago, have proven how out of step and out of touch they are with the American people. Rahm Emanuel, in one of the most ridiculous statements every made, recently held a press conference to tell the world's illegal immigrants that "Chicago is a safe city for you." Hilarious, since Chicago is the most dangerous city in the United States with around 20 shooting a night and the highest murder rate....of any city in America....ever.
The Police Chief in Los Angeles also recently came out and said that he and his force wouldn't be helping ICE with deportation matters. If you haven't driven around Los Angeles lately, you should - just to see how bombed out the city is and how immigration policies have worked out here. Block after block just south of downtown...bombed out, people sleeping in tents that line the city streets. BArs on all windows, dirt, filth, garbage filling the streets. It's a disgrace. It seems "other worldy".
At least seven mayors of the following cities that have felt compelled to come forward and state that they won't help the Feds under Trump: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Providence, R.I. Trump has floated the concept that if they do not adhere to immigration laws, he will consider cutting their federal funding. THEREFORE, it doesn't matter if the cities have the right to ignore Trumps desire for law and order, the reality of the situation is that Trump can stop billions of taxpayer dollars to these cities until they comply. Just wait until the citizens of these cities are told that they will now have to pay for all these leftist elite programs for illegal aliens because the federal government won't.
It is irrelevant as to who has a right to do what. The city may have a right to ignore the federal government on immigration. The federal government may have the right to withold funding. What is relevant is to ask the question, "What do the people want?", something the Democrats KEEP FORGETTING TO CARE ABOUT. A 2015 study, done by the University of California, Berkeley's Institute for Government Studies found something very interesting: 74% of Californians actually oppose sanctuary policies, including 71% of Democrats and 65% of Latinos! In an online poll started 11-12-16, 66% of respondents think that Sanctuary cities should not get federal funds. Rasmussen Reports found that 62% of all Americans polled stated that cities that provide sanctuary to illegals should be prosecuted (or punished) by the US Department of Justice for not adhering to federal law.
To drive home the point of how out of touch Democrats are, the Rasmussen Report found this: While 79% of GOP voters and 61% of unaffiliateds want to cut off all aid to these cities, 54% of Democrats are opposed. Apparently the Democrats simply want to keep on doing what they're doing - allow illegals to come into the country and vote Democrat...keeps them in power, but sure doesn't seem to be making America safer or in tune with what the American people want. Out of touch, yet again.
In 2015 Democrat Progressive Socialist Communists Senators from California, NY, CT, WI OR, MA, NJ, WA and others blocked a bill called the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act, written with the Kates Law in it, named after Kate Steinle who was fatally shot by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco after he had been allowed sanctuary in the city despite his criminal record and illegal status in America. Both Senators from California, where the heinous act occurred, voted to block the bill. That would be Boxer and Feinstein.

The Democrat Socialist Progressive Communist Party and Obama's record over the last 8 years has been destructive to America. If you can't see it, you're blind. Unsustainable destructive policies of open borders, practically treasonous support of muslim terrorist countries like Iran that continue to hunt for us, kidnap us, torture us and kill us. Outright failure in international and foreign policies, a doubling of our national debt to levels never thought possible making our country vulnerable on yet another front - the financial front. His actions circumvented the Congress numerous times and he arrogantly issued what some believe are unconstitutional and illegal Executive Orders. He clearly has disdain for anyone that doesn't see the world his way, which is the height of arrogance. He clearly dislikes America and its Constitution. Now, as he is in his final days, he continues to travel the world and trash talk America, try to convince the people of the world that America is better since he took office, and yet he continues to arrogantly trash talk and lecture and warn our President Elect. Like in Greece, they demonstrate and tell him to "GO HOME". The world knows what a failure you were, Obama, so why don't you stop talking for your final 2 months. Nobody is listening anymore and you're making more of a fool of yourself with your empty threats. Retire with some class, if that's possible.
With less than 60 days to go, we can't wait for you to be gone and today, the day before Thanksgiving 2016 when this is scheduled to go live on our site, we give THANKS to God and all patriotic Americans that voted for Donald Trump and may have saved our nation and certainly saved what is left of our Constitution from the socialist communists of the progressive Democrat Party.
NOTE: TotallyRight will be back December 2, 2016 as we take a breath after this breathless political season and give thanks with our family members and loved ones.
