Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg delivered a tough message for progressives to swallow.
PJ Media reported:
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg attacked sanctuary cities on MSNBC Tuesday morning, denouncing the idea of cities effectively nullifying federal law.
“What would you do about this issue of sanctuary cities, about the cities who are saying we’re not going to enforce federal law?” economic analyst Steven Rattner asked Bloomberg on “Morning Joe.”
“You cannot, Steve, have everybody be deciding which laws they obey,” the former mayor bluntly declared. “The law is the law.”
Rather than changing or subverting federal law — especially on immigration, the most frequent target of “sanctuary cities” — Bloomberg insisted that people should try to change the law.
“You should obey the law, and if you don’t like the law, get your legislative body to change the law,” the former mayor said. “But society breaks down if we can all decide what’s right and what’s wrong. You can’t do that. We have a system of laws, [you] have to live with it.”
Give credit where credit is due. The fact that Bloomberg said that the law must be obeyed is good on his part, if only the rest of the liberals thought the same way!
