house Bill H.R. 5617

Should Sanctuary Cities Not Get Federal Grants to Cover the Cost of Jailing Unauthorized Immigrants?

Argument in favor

Sanctuary policies undermine the government’s effort to fulfill its primary responsiblity — ensuring public safety — by encouraging illegal immigration to states & cities with such policies and allowing criminal unauthorized immigrants to evade federal custody.

Our borders should be protected. The legal immigration system is a joke, but we should reform that instead of just letting people pour in and do whatever they want.

No federal money should go to any city. But, someone who breaks federal law should not be receiving federal money to do it! We taxpayers are paying them to destroy our country!

Argument opposed

The federal government should allow state and local governments to enforce or ignore immigration laws as they see fit, not threaten to withhold critical law enforcement grants over a lack of compliance.

Undocumented immigration is federal failure, not the states. States cannot issue visas or papers. It’s not their responsibility or their problem. Threatening and bullying states to do the federal governments job is a violation of states rights.

When did America lose its heart and soul? This idea is an abomination!!!! Trump should lose HIS funding. Sanctuary Cities should be celebrated and history will do that in time.

Punishing cities for sheltering unauthorized immigrants, many of whom are fleeing extreme poverty and crime, is immoral. Why has it always been okay to employ these immigrants for a very small fraction of even the minimum wage (at the benefit of legal citizens) yet suddenly see them as not worthy of being in the U.S.? Could it be the fanning of flames of hate at the expense of reason?

    A Sanctuary City should get funding regardless. Go back and read Deutoronmy 15 where it talks about Cities of Refuge then ask your self how this applies today. Remember what would Jesus do.

    Sanctuary Cities are a systemic response to ridiculously hard to navigate immigration law that refuses to accommodate all the different reasons a person may need to be in our country. Removing funding in response is vindictive instead of productive, creating additional problems without an attempt at solving the need. Please reform immigration law to more closely align with the complexity of human experience.

    Illegal aliens are law breakers and should be treated like any other law breaker. If the federal government doesn't provide funding for other federal crimes, then they shouldn't provide funding for locking up illegal aliens.

    Any sanctuary city or State shouldn’t receive ANY funding. These places are destroying America and US citizens are being murdered. It’s also causing all of these caravans marching toward America. Vote out these fascist liberal democrats and save America.

    We would not need sanctuary cities if the GOP and Trump had not abandoned one of our primary goals: to provide those whose lives are in danger a haven. I am proud of all those cities who see the American dream threatened by current policies and have stepped up to fill the gap.

    Of course they should. Number one, it’s the law and basic common sense. You do know it’s our tax money going for all of this nonsense. This is ridiculous. Dems just want their voters

    If Trump wants to deny aid to sanctuary cities, then sanctuary cities should not have to pay taxes to the federal government and keep that money for themselves. You see california has at least three Sanctuary cities San Diego Los Angeles and San Francisco. And CALIFORNIA makes up over a third of the United States economy and CALIFORNIA’s taxes finance healthcare and education throughout the rest of the country. Don’t Trump Where is his ass for a hat. If you villainize every person that comes into this country they will not turn in crimes that they see for fear that they’ll be arrested and your crime rate will go up. It’s already happening I wish people would just open their eyes and see that
