President Trump promised that during his presidency he would completely exterminate sanctuary cities, and that is exactly what he is doing. On Friday, the first sanctuary city CAVED due to threats of withholding funds.
“Miami-Dade County commissioners voted 9-3 Friday in favor of upholding Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s order to drop the county’s status as a sanctuary city.
Miami-Dade is the only U.S. county where more than half the population is foreign-born. As one of his core campaign promises, President Donald Trump vowed to eliminate federal funding to these so-called sanctuary cities.”
Judge Alex Ferrer discussed the groundbreaking vote and explained that we are likely to see a pattern of this happening.
“It’s a harbinger of what’s gonna [sic] happen across the country as cities are denied the money that they depend on for their budgets and for their special projects,” said Ferrer, a former Miami-Dade County circuit judge.
He said Trump plays a direct role in this situation since he is the one that started the change, and this is a change that was desperately needed.
Besides the overwhelming amount of crime, sanctuary cities impose billions in cost to taxpayers that has been hidden from public view and shielded from political accountability.
That annual taxpayer burden amounts to over $14 Billion nationally, over $1 billion in California and Texas and over $100 million annually in over a dozen states.
