Attorney General William Barr Announces New Sanctions Against Sanctuary Cities

The battle over the enforcement of federal immigration law may soon come to an end.

For three years, many liberal cities have declared themselves ‘Sanctuary Cities’ as a political rebuke of President Trump, who is simply trying to enforce immigration laws currently in place.

Now Attorney General William Barr is getting involved.

Barr announces sweeping new sanctions, ‘significant escalation’ against left-wing sanctuary cities

Charging that so-called “sanctuary” cities that protect illegal immigrants are jeopardizing domestic security, Attorney General Bill Barr announced a slew of additional sanctions that he called a “significant escalation” against left-wing local and state governments that obstruct the “lawful functioning of our nation’s immigration system.”

Speaking at the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference in Washington, D.C., Barr said the Justice Department would immediately file multiple lawsuits against sanctuary jurisdictions for unconstitutionally interfering with federal immigration enforcement, and implement unprecedented national reviews of left-wing sanctuary governments and prosecutors.

“Let us state the reality upfront and as clearly as possible,” Barr began. “When we are talking about sanctuary cities, we are talking about policies that are designed to allow criminal aliens to escape. These policies are not about people who came to our country illegally but have otherwise been peaceful and productive members of society. Their express purpose is to shelter aliens whom local law enforcement has already arrested for other crimes. This is neither lawful nor sensible.”

This is a good thing.

The left is going to lose their minds over this. Let them.
