Democratic state and local leaders have responded with defiance to President Donald Trump’s executive orders Wednesday calling for the federal government to stop giving grants to jurisdictions which protect illegal immigrants and allow for local law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law.
Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, denied in a statement that Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, despite the Center for Immigration Studies saying otherwise, and said that police enforcing immigration law would hurt community trust.
This line of defense is one many mayors took, denying they are a sanctuary city and instead focusing on President Trump’s order to allow local police to enforce immigration law.
Denver, which has in the past not complied with Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers, said they are not a sanctuary city and would comply with ICE if the agency had a warrant.Read the rest of the story HERE and follow a link to a related story below:
