The debate over sanctuary cities is boiling over across the United States at a time when hundreds of cities, and more being added every week, are opening jurisdictions to illegal aliens and providing them, including violent criminals, shelter from immigration authorities.
On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions told reporters, “Such policies cannot continue. They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the street." The Trump administration has threatened to withhold federal funding from any city that provides sanctuary for law breakers.
There are loud voices from both sides, but the voices of those legal immigrants in America who are against illegals pouring over our borders unchecked are often unheard. So, we wanted to include a few videos of recent town halls where legal citizens stood before their city council members and used their constitutional rights to freely speak directly to elected officials.
Most surprisingly is how many citizens in Los Angeles have spoken out. Here’s what happened at a recent L.A. Board of Supervisor’s Meeting on immigration and the sanctuary status of its city:
In the next, a woman holds back tears as she talks to her California city council about those who have been murdered by illegal aliens who were allowed to remain unchecked by authorities. She recited a very memorable line for those who are confusing the language so that “legal” and “illegal” don’t mean anything:
“Stop trying to blur the difference between ‘legal’ and ‘illegal.’ There’s a big difference. We’re Americans. We live the America culture, and we have the American spirit. We don’t steal, we don’t lie, and we don’t take other people’s things.”
The featured video in this story is of a Trump supporter we’ve reported on before. He was present at the Oscars protest wearing the same Trump for President hat. This latest video was during last month’s meeting near L.A. at the Cudahy town hall, which had several very explosive outbursts with upset citizens rallying against sanctuary cities. Here's another speech from that same meeting:
But the Democrats who run these cities are happy to welcome illegal aliens into their communities, as evidenced in this video from Nebraska’s Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb, in which she explains that all arriving “refugees” get a welcome basket with various sundries, items of comfort, and, of course, voter registration forms:
