Mayor de Blasio: NYC Being a Sanctuary City Keeps Terrorism at Bay
New York City – Mayor Bill de Blasio claimed that New York is at risk of terror if AG Sessions cuts federal funding for sanctuary cities.
Let me get this right–it’s safer to harbor illegal aliens in your city and if you don’t, the nice illegals will get angry and blow up your city. Makes perfect sense.
“President Trump’s latest threat changes nothing. We will remain a city welcoming of immigrants, who have helped make our city the safest big city in the nation,” de Blasio said. “Any attempt to cut NYPD funding for the nation’s top terror target will be aggressively fought in court. We won’t back down from protecting New Yorkers from terror – or from an overzealous administration fixated on xenophobia and needless division.”
De Blasio made his statement in response to Sessions’ latest crackdown on sanctuary cities, in which the attorney general said Monday that the Department of Justice would prevent billions of dollars in law enforcement grants from going to sanctuary jurisdictions.
I’m so confused. What caused the bombing in Chelsea, New York this past September while NYC was receiving their federal funding? I’m sure that had nothing to do with Islamic terrorism. That friendly terrorist was probably just acting out because of Donald Trump’s rhetoric.
The mental gymnastics that these liberals do to justify their stance on national security is amazing. The point is to keep as many of the bad guys out as possible so law enforcement isn’t stretched thin.
