We must STOP sanctuary cities!

Some of you may not be familiar with the term “sanctuary city.” A “sanctuary city” is a city that invites and harbors illegal aliens. They assist these criminal aliens in breaking our laws and shield them from criminal charges or deportation.

Among these "sanctuary cities" are Anchorage, Baltimore, Durham, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City. The local government officials in these cities have determined themselves to undermine the sovereignty of our nation. They care nothing for our rule of law.

Their act of defiance is a felony under the Immigration and Nationality Act, yet our federal officials refuse to do anything about it. They continue to give federal tax money to the felons in charge of these local governments.

So, why is this so important? Why is it so critical to end the sanctuary policies of these cities? Well, that should be obvious. If local politicians are allowed to rewrite the law, or simply violate it whenever they choose, it sets a dangerous precedent for our national security.

Case in point. This week, six would-be Islamic jihadists were arrested in connection with a plot to attack soldiers at Fort Dix. Among the six were 3 brothers, Dritan, Shain, and Eljvir Duka. Would it surprise you to know that all three of these men had entered into this country illegally? In fact, they had been living in the United States illegally for 23 years!

These criminal aliens had also received 19 traffic citations. Typically, if an illegal alien receives any sort of citation, it is reported to immigration authorities. Nineteen citations would certainly raise some red flags.

But, the 3 brothers had been living in “sanctuary cities.” That’s right. Local government officials had harbored these three criminal alien Islamic militants from federal prosecution for 23 years. Because, they assisted them in the violation of our immigration laws, federal officials never knew that these jihadists were living inside our borders.

That is why these local governments must stop the practice of harboring criminal aliens. Securing the borders and cracking down on illegal immigration isn’t simply about stopping the flow of Mexican workers from crossing our borders. It is also about stopping the flow of Islamic terrorists. They can cross our northern or southern border without our ever knowing it. And, once they are here, there are city officials in these "sanctuary cities" who will commit felonies to shield them from prosecution.

That amounts to nothing less than treason.
