Here ya go folks… not very hard at all. We now have a comprehensive list of every Sanctuary City in America. Below, are six of them which are already openly defying President Elect Trump! Time to take matters into our own hands, and act NOW.
As President Trump assumes the oath of office, we will continue to add and/or hopefully subtract from this list, as we keep a running tally here. Stay tuned…
The following (6) Cities MUST be boycotted IMMEDIATELY:
Seattle has shielded undocumented immigrants from ICE since 2003. On Wednesday, Ed Murray said that continuing to provide a haven is “the most American thing we could possibly do.”
“These are our neighbors, and we will continue to support our neighbors,” he said, according to the Seattle Times. “We can’t allow ourselves to be divided and sorted out. That’s not America.”
New York City
On Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio held a press conference, where he vowed to do everything in his power to protect undocumented immigrants. “We’re not going to take anything lying down,” he said. “We are not going to sacrifice a half million people who live among us. We’re not going to tear families apart. We will do everything we know how to do to resist that.”
He even went as far as saying that his administration would destroy any records it has on undocumented people if it has to.
In an email, Mayor Eric Garcetti’s spokeswoman, Connie Llanos, explained how it would move forward. “We comply with federal immigration agencies, but insist that detainer requests be handled constitutionally,” Llanos wrote, according to Fortune. “It is Mayor Garcetti’s sincere hope that no president would violate those principles, the very foundation of our nation, by taking punitive action on cities that are simply protecting the well being of residents.”
Through Twitter and at a news conference, Ed Lee outlined how committed San Francisco is to protecting undocumented immigrants. “I think we have about a half-billion dollars in direct funding — probably more when we look at how we disperse state funding,” Lee said. “I hope politics does not get in the way of public service.”
Jim Kenney is also ready to fight for immigrants, according to Philly.com. “First of all, we’ve changed the name from ‘sanctuary city’ to ‘the Fourth Amendment city,’ ” Kenney said. “We respect and live up to the Fourth Amendment, which means you can’t be held against your will without a warrant from the court signed by a judge. So, yeah, we will continue to be a Fourth Amendment city abiding by the Constitution.”
When asked how he’d handle Trump cutting off funds from Philadelphia, he said that it’s something he’ll worry about when it comes. “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, and we’ll see how it goes and we’ll try to figure something out,” he said.
Mayor Steve Adler said that while we don’t know what comes next, he’s certain of one thing. “In this time of uncertainty, I stand here certain about one thing: Austin will not waver,” he said. “Austin has been a visible and outspoken champion for justice, equity, and opportunity. And nothing that happened this week changes who we are as a community, our values and our culture.”
