President Trump doubled-down on his administration’s tough stance towards illegal immigration Friday; confirming the White House was “strongly considering placing illegal immigrants in Sanctuary Cities.”
“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities. Only the Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!” Trump posted on social media.

The move comes weeks after the President declared a “national emergency” along the US-Mexico border; effectively bypassing Congress to secure funding for his long-promised border wall.
CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Residents FLEE SAN FRANCISCO Over Sanctuary City Laws, Rampant Crime
Residents are fleeing the San Francisco area at levels not seen in more than a decade as years of liberal policies take their toll; with locals decrying rampant drug use, Sanctuary City laws, and crippling taxes as the motivating factor to pack up and abandon the City by the Bay.
According to CBS News, more people are emigrating from the Bay Area than are moving in; making the region the “number one place” for out-migration in the nation. The crisis is reaching a fever pitch, with U-Haul business owners refusing to rent vans to those leaving town, fearing they won’t be able to retrieve their vehicles.
“I loved it here when I first got here. I really loved it here. But it’s just not the same,” said one software engineer. “We don’t like it here anymore. You know, we don’t like this sanctuary state status and just the politics.”
“Silicon Valley has been this place that is growing. And it was mostly due to people relocating here and relocating from other parts of the world. That’s changing,” said another executive in the technology industry.
Despite new guidelines distributed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, San Francisco refuses to comply with federal immigration policies; declaring itself a Sanctuary City and defying agencies determined to restrict the flow of illegal immigrants into California.
CALIFORNIA CHAOS: One Small Town FIGHTS BACK Against ‘SANCTUARY’ Laws
The second-smallest city in Orange County, California is gearing up for a major legal battle against the state’s outrageous ‘Sanctuary City’ policies; with the local government voting Monday on whether they plan to opt out of the “California Values Act” that prohibits cooperation between local police and federal immigration agents
According to the Orange County Register, the city of Los Alamitos will hold a vote this week to withdraw from the state’s policies that buck federal guidelines regarding illegal immigration; saying the state law “may be in direct conflict with federal laws and the Constitution of the United States.”
“The proposed ordinance might be the first local attempt in California to officially challenge the law, said Kathleen Kim, a Loyola Marymount University law professor who specializes in immigrants’ rights and human trafficking,” writes the Register.
“Everyone holding elective office takes the same oath to uphold the laws to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. It doesn’t say unless the state legislature decides otherwise,” a community activist told the OCR. “I do believe somewhere in our history, we fought a war to prevent states from ignoring the law of the land and preserving the union.”
The city’s decision to fight back against the state’s ‘Sanctuary’ policies comes just days after President Trump toured the region; calling on officials to fund his border wall prototypes and cooperate with ICE agents in cracking down on illegal immigrants residing in the United States.
