Syrian-Born Muslim Mayor Signs Executive Order Making His N.J. Borough A Sanctuary City For Refugees!
New Jersey-Syrian-born Muslim Mayor, Mohamed T Khairullah signed an executive order on Friday declaring the borough a sanctuary city for immigrants!
The order signed Friday allows equal protection treatment for all borough residents, regardless of immigration status. The move comes one week after President Donald Trump signed an executive order barring refugees from seven majority-Muslim countries, including Syria, from entering into the U.S.
“It is important to me as a person who came to the U.S as an immigrant, that we uphold our laws and values,” Khairullah said Saturday. “The U.S is the land of opportunity and dreams for many people all over the world.”
“No department, committee, agency, commission, officer or employee of the Borough of Prospect Park shall use any Borough funds or resources to assist in the enforcement of Federal Immigration Law,” the order reads.
Although Trump has stated that he will cut off Federal funding to ‘sanctuary cities’, this Muslim Mayor was smug in his response…
“We are in a unique position that we don’t rely on federal funding,” Khairullah said. “Even if we were in that position, we would try to figure something out.”
Khairullah was born in Syria and fled the country as a child. He later arrived in the United States in 1991. His political career started in 2001 when he was elected as a councilman in the borough. He has now served as the mayor for 11 years.
The fox is guarding the hen house. This Muslim Mayor clearly has an allegiance to Syria, NOT the United States. We have no idea who he could be aiding and abetting in his Borough with this executive order. Every single one of these politicians creating sanctuary cities needs to be charged and brought to justice. We are a nation with borders and immigration laws put in place to protect Americans, not foreigners!
