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.”

I hope these mayors don't all fold at the same time.

I've got popcorn and I want maximum entertainment value.

Fuck you, ACLU.

South, that's a shit-ton of house cleaning to do down there.  There's probably more illegals than there are snakes, alligators, iguanas and cockroaches.

I say we just nuke it from's the only way to be sure.  ;-)

Yeah, that Saul of Tarsus was a nasty son of a bitch--even when he became a Christian. Jesus of Nazareth however, gave free wine and food for everybody. Stupid Jesus, huh?

Mark 14


3And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. 4And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? 5For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. 6And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. 7For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. 8She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. 9Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

"How do you fight terrorism abroad and let everyone in at your border"?

By becoming a Democrat with a demoncratic brain. It's dogma.

What if all the liberals, especially the wealthy ones, took into their home and supported these illegal immigrants for a couple of years to see if these folks could get started with good jobs and set up homes for themselves.

After all, all it would be is putting their money where their mouths are.

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

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

"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 ;-)

FreedomGuy's picture

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.

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.
