ON THIN ICE: Philadelphia Mayor BANS COOPERATION with Immigration Agents

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.27.18

The City of Brotherly Love announced Friday that it will no longer share “real time arrest data” with federal immigration authorities; saying ICE agents are “misusing” the information to target those in the country illegally.

According to the Associated Press, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney unveiled his decision this week, saying “We’re not going to provide them with information so they can go out and round people up.”

“The decision by the mayor means the city will not renew a contract that expires Aug. 31,” writes the AP. “He said the federal agency’s actions have created fear and distrust in the city’s immigrant community and made it more difficult for police to solve crimes.”

“How anyone can define this as making America great again is beyond me,” the mayor added.

The Democratic leader went on to accuse ICE of using “arrest warrants” to “round-up” immigrants throughout Philadelphia, saying federal authorities have “created the false perception that the city is willing to be an extension of ICE.”

Mayor Kenney made headlines earlier this year after he “danced for joy” following a decision that labeled Philadelphia a “sanctuary city.”

SARAH SANDERS: Philadelphia Eagles Have ‘Abandoned Their Fans’

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a lengthy statement Tuesday detailing the President’s decision to cancel his scheduled event with the Philadelphia Eagles; saying the NFL team had “abandoned their fans.”

Sanders published the White House’s official response just hours after the President ditched the ceremony over the athletes’ refusal to remain standing during the performance of the US national anthem, saying they would be unable to “hide in the locker room” during the event.

“On Thursday, May 31, the team notified the White House of 81 individuals, including players, coaches, management, and support personnel, who would attend the event. On Friday, the Secret Service cleared them for participation. These individuals, along with more than 1,000 Eagles fans, were scheduled to attend the event,” said Sanders.

“Unfortunately, the Eagles offered to send only a tiny handful of representatives, while making clear that the great majority of players would not attend the event, despite planning to be in D.C. today. In other words, the vast majority of the Eagles team decided to abandon their fans,” she added.

SANCTUARY SHUFFLE: Philly Mayor DANCES to Celebrate ‘Sanctuary City’ Ruling

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.07.18

The Democrat Mayor of Philadelphia couldn’t hide his happiness after a federal judge ruled against the Trump administration this week; dancing to celebrate the court’s decision that officially labeled Philly a “Sanctuary City.”

A staffer caught the bizarre moment on tape Wednesday, posting a video on social media that showed Mayor James Kenney jumping for joy with an aide and gleefully belting-out, “We are a Sanctuary City!”

Federal Judge Michael Baylson ruled this week that the Trump administration could not legally cut-off government grants to Philadelphia based on the way the city handles illegal immigrants and undocumented workers; effectively allowing City of Brotherly Love to continue to shield illegal migrants from federal agents.
