You have to give Jeff Sessions credit for this. He decides he wants to talk about how bad sanctuary cities are, and he goes to Portland, Oregon to do it. That’s guts!
NBC News has the details:
Sessions Visits a Sanctuary City, Tells It to Stop
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday visited Portland — a sanctuary city — to rail against what he calls the evils of such jurisdictions, bringing up an alleged undocumented immigrant rapist in their midst to make his case.
Sanctuary policies “endanger us all,” said Sessions, who cited a recent grisly crime in Portland in urging the city and the state of Oregon, a sanctuary state, to “reconsider” their stances.
“To win this multi-front war against rising crime, we need to use every lawful tool we have. And we need to eliminate all bad policies,” Sessions said at the Portland field office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, part of the Department of Homeland Security.
“I urge the city of Portland, the state of Oregon, and every sanctuary jurisdiction to reconsider,” Sessions added. “These policies do far greater damage than many understand. At its root, they are a rejection of our immigration laws and a declaration of open borders.”
“Sanctuary policies endanger us all,” he said.

He’s right, too. Sanctuary cities hurt immigrants as well as citizens.
