U.S. Mayors Say They’ll Defy Trump

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, joins the mayors of San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, saying they will continue to refuse to cooperate with ICE officials to deport criminal illegal aliens. Emanuel said he would also defy Trump’s deportation orders when he is inaugurated, and insisted Chicago will always be a sanctuary city.

During a press conference on Monday, Emanuel reassured illegals, “You are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are supported in Chicago.” He was also publicizing the expansion of mental health services for people who became “anxious” due to the election.

Sanctuary cities are safe havens for illegals who have broken the law. These cities follow the policy of not turning illegals in to immigration services for deportation. Chicago laws prohibit government workers and police officers from asking about a person’s immigration status. Law enforcement officials say that immigrants are more likely to cooperate with police if they are not afraid of being deported.

Donald Trump has promised that as president, he will work to deport or incarcerate all illegal immigrants who have criminal records. His “First 100 Days” plan includes cutting off all federal funding to sanctuary cities–the largest of which receive about $1 billion from the federal government.

Enforcement along our southern border has all but collapsed, as agents have been commanded by the Obama administration to “catch and release” illegals. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) releases nearly 75 percent of the illegals they encounter. Of those released, about one-third have criminal convictions on their records.

During the campaign, Donald Trump made securing the border a top priority. He spoke often about the murders committed by criminal illegals who had been caught multiple times, but were released back into society. He promised to put a stop to Catch and Release.

President Obama is currently trying to get as many immigrants and refugees into the U.S. as possible before he leaves office. He promised to allow tens of thousands of additional refugees this year, and will increase that by 30 percent next year. He has recently struck a deal with Australia to bring 1, 600 Muslim refugees to our shores. These are people who escaped from Indonesia and are currently being held on the islands of Manus and Nauru.

Why this Matters: Chicago – It is simply amazing that the mayor of a city which has the most deplorable murder rate in the nation, could be promising safety to anyone. A Chicago Tribune poll in January found that just 27 percent of voters approve of Emanuel’s job performance. The federal government doesn’t have jurisdiction over any city, but it does have the power of the purse. It is widely believed that the threat of removing funding will be enough to get these cities back on track.

President Obama is like the magician who by sleight of hand has us watching his left hand while he is hiding what he’s doing with his right. While the President has been promoting the peaceful transfer of power, he is still working on his globalist agenda. One of foremost goals of the globalists is to remove national borders and subvert western culture.

Pray for wisdom and discernment for Trump and his cabinet; for a sane and lawful solution to our immigration problems, and that stability would return to Central and South American countries where fighting and drug cartels have created dire conditions. Pray the President’s plans to flood the U.S. with refugees will pass through the Lord’s filter.

1 Cor. 4:5 – Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
