Miami-Dade County Is First To Terminate Sanctuary Status

Tyler Durden's picture

As we noted previously, Trump made it clear that he plans to make good on his campaign pledge to block federal funding to states and cities where local law enforcement refuse to report undocumented immigrants they encounter to federal authorities, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.

"The American people are no longer going to have to be forced to subsidize this disregard for our laws,” Spicer said.


Spicer said an executive order signed by Trump on Wednesday directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to look at federal funding to cities to figure out "how we can defund those streams."

And tonight, as The Hill reports, the first so-called 'Sanctuary City' mayor decided to comply with President Trump's executive orders... 

The mayor of Miami-Dade County, Fla., on Thursday ordered his local jails to comply.

“In light of the provisions of the Executive Order, I direct you and your staff to honor all immigration detainer requests received from the Department of Homeland Security,” Mayor Carlos Gimenezwrote in a memo to the interim head of the corrections and rehabilitation department, as reported by the Miami Herald.


“Miami-Dade County complies with federal law and intends to fully cooperate with the federal government,” Gimenez wrote.


“I will partner with the Board of County Commissioners to address any issues necessary to achieve this end,” the mayor added.

Of course, there is another reason why the Miami-Dade mayor chose to be so patriotic and follow President Trump's commands... his county does not even make it into the Top 10 for Obama's legacy federal funding for Sanctuary status...


Nevertheless, while the executiuve order may end up costing Miami-Dade millions of dollars,  President Trump tweeted about the decision Thursday night, calling it "strong" and the "right decision."

"From here on out, I'm asking all of you to enforce the laws of the United States of America. They will be enforced and enforced strongly," Trump said during his visit to DHS.

“Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders,” he added.

As The Miami Herald reports, Howard Simon, executive director of the Florida chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, denounced Gimenez’s action, saying that it:

“flies in the face of Miami’s long history as a city of immigrants” and predicting it will “drive a wedge of distrust between law enforcement and our immigrant community.”


“At the very least, a warrant from a court, not merely a request from a federal official, is required to detain somebody in jail,” Simon said.


“We will resist every attempt by our government to punish immigrants, regardless of their status.”

Yep.  Good.  Get it done.  "Sanctuary Cities" please - do libtards have no clue what the word ILLEGAL means?

"Illegal" is just a hateful, xenophobic Republican word.  Progressives feel free to ignore it.

And Chairman Soros wants the best for us, by eliminating all borders and limits that oppress freedom-loving people.

No need for that. Everyone has the right to contribute to the conversation. Sometimes they are right. Sometimes I am wrong and don't know I am wrong until I listen to the other side. Sometimes they are wrong. We discover that in conversation. 

No censorship.

This is emotion vs. logic. Emotion has run the show for a long time. I feel awful, but I am curious to see what following the LAW will get us. They will have to work some things out, it will be uncomfortable. Wish we would legalize weed here. Then produce it here. Troubles with Mexico would be all done with. Tax base would increase, jobs, no market for gangs and underground drug distribution.

Find out who is behind the creation and control of the ACLU.

You would be suprised.

Yep, its them subversive rascals again.

I reluctantly agree. But there's some serious ass to kick first, its really gone too far now. We will have one common law that applies equally or we will have none. For example, an illegal alien doesn't get the "special rights" of our citizenship because they willingly broke our law by virtue of the fact they are here illegally to begin with.

This coming from the nmewn household who wrote letters to a judge in favor of one illegal who really is a good guy. He knows what he did was unlawful and we will never turn him in, yet, he is, by definition an alien criminal who can be scooped up off the streets without notice and deported...and he knows it.

Just like the ones who are not near as kind & responsible as him, its not a monolithic bloc of the same type of people, like the ACLU would have everyone believe ;-)

The ACLU should not be destroyed by government force. However, if it began losing all it's funding and went the way of Woolwoth's and American Motors that would be okay.

1 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

MsCreant, there really is no conversation with the ACLU.  They'll sue you.  Just try to organize a Christmas song at your elementary schools's "winter concert."  See what happens.

You have to wait for the election fraud investigation, then any illegal caught interfering with out election gets deported immediately to send a message that if you hope to stay in this country, you might want to follow the laws of the land. Wait a bit then start deporting. Like a reverse sin tax, if you are a drag on our system, we will drag you out of the country.

This idea that a city can grant US residency status was always whacked.

You would think US cities have larger challenges that their citizens actually care about.

You will see a drop in crime and the stoopid sh1t and then Americans will get interested in living there again.

Straighten out the crime and people will invest.

It's been an internal revolt going on for decades now.  Time to root it out and clean it up.  The sanctuary city governments act like gangs so they deserve that treatment.

That's true. Cities aren't sovereign nations. I can't help thinking that this was simply a con job by these grandstanding mayors aimed at trying to get even more federal and state money for the city government to embezzle and misappropriate.

I am so sick and tired of reading all these fucks acting like wanting immigration laws followed means one is attacking all immigrants. The sheer idiocy of the mental gymnastics needed for that is mind boggling.

Questions to infuriate the brainwashed PC brigade.

1. Why don't people enter the country through the official border crossing?

2. Do you advocate people entering the country illegally?

3. Do you advocate the authorities being complicit in criminality by turning a blind eye when people enter the country illegally?

If they answer "Yes" to 2 or 3, then they themselves are complicity in criminality, by advocating such actions by others. Best to tape their answers, might come in useful one day.

No shit ! My father came here from Mexico-LEGALLY- my grandparents from Itlay -LEGALLY- and taught us the value of eduacation and hard work, we have doctors (myself among them) , nurses and cops in my immediate family. The idea that anyone should be allowed to just waltz over the border is sheer lunacy.  A lot of American born hispanics I know feel the same, any rapist or murderer who come sup here gives us normal people a black eye. Let them go thru the legal process, like I would have to if I was moving to their country

Fuck you, get out!
There is a local office you can start the proper method of entering. Feel free to call when you are back home in your shithole country.

I drove charter buses in NYC late '70s. One trip was picking up a team of Latino baseball players, Dominican Republic background, maybe semi pro, some of the guys were acting up as they were getting on the bus and the team captain shouts "Quit acting like Puerto Ricans!"

That and my experiences with Japanese, Chinese, and Koreans taught me that racism and hatred is not a white social construct.

Trump will eventually declare amnesty in some form.  After he secures the border.  He's also going to propose single payer health care
