BREAKING – Seattle Sues Trump Admin Over Sanctuary City Executive Order

Seattle, Washington – Seattle Mayor, Ed Murray announced that the city is suing the Trump administration, arguing that the executive order on sanctuary cities is unconstitutional. 

Let me get this right-it’s Constitutional to aid and abet people who are in the country illegally, and unconstitutional to enforced federal laws regarding immigration. Got it.

The Seattle Times reports:

Seattle is suing the federal government over President Donald Trump’s executive order cracking down on so-called “sanctuary cities,” Mayor Ed Murray said Wednesday.

The city’s goal is to have the order declared unconstitutional, Murray said. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle.

The announcement comes two days after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Department of Justice would turn up the pressure and withhold grants from “sanctuary” jurisdictions for not doing more to help the Trump administration capture and deport people living in the U.S. illegally.

Seattle expects to receive more than $150 million in federal funds this year, including $2.6 million in grants from the Department of Justice. Murray has said he is willing to lose “every penny” of that rather than alter how the city approaches immigration enforcement.

The Trump administration is simply enforcing existing federal immigration laws. The ‘sanctuary cities’ are unconstitutional and everyone participating in harboring illegal aliens should be prosecuted.

How many of our citizens have to be raped and murdered until these lunatic liberals see how dangerous ‘sanctuary cities’ really are?
