FORMER CLINTON AIDE – 84 % OF AMERICANS WANT ALL ILLEGALS TURNED OVER TO AUTHORITIES

Penn said the response was strikingly “out of sync” with what the public might think about sanctuary cities. The broad term refers to cities that don’t fully cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to turning over people in the country illegally to immigration enforcement.

(The Hill) Prominent Democratic pollster Mark Penn said on Thursday that a vast majority of Americans don’t really support so-called sanctuary cities that shield immigrants in the country illegally from deportation.

Penn, who served as chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, revealed that 84 percent of Americans favor turning undocumented immigrants over to federal agents.

“I asked them, ‘Do you think notifying ICE would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street,’ and they overwhelming said ‘decrease,’ ” Penn told Hill.TV’s “Rising.”

Penn said the response was strikingly “out of sync” with what the public might think about sanctuary cities. The broad term refers to cities that don’t fully cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to turning over people in the country illegally to immigration enforcement.

“When someone’s arrested, they expect someone will notify federal immigration authorities just as they would expect someone who violates state tax law will find out that they notified the IRS,” the pollster said.

President Trump has made sanctuary cities a frequent target during his administration, arguing that they make the U.S. less safe. In January, Trump signed an executive order in an effort to withhold money from sanctuary cities, though some of that money did still go to those cities.

Some cities protested Trump’s crackdown. Mayors, including New York’s Bill de Blasio and then-New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, boycotted a meeting with Trump following his executive order. De Blasio called the order a “racist assault” on sanctuary cities.

But it looks like Trump has achieved a victory — at least for now.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday temporarily narrowed the scope of a nationwide injunction against the Trump administration’s attempt to withhold grants from sanctuary cities.

  1. No illegal should not be here and are entitled to nothing. Our government gives them all our hard money earned and our own people are not taken care of. Plus the pundits haters of America MSM give a platform to all these third world people telling us what the American people want. They don’t even know what our country is about nor our history. Hell they know nothing about anything. They bring their uneducated thinking here. We must get them out,at all cost. They are commies, socialists same thing. Everything they do is fake. This children thing is so organized like everything they do with the help of the enemy within. GET THEM OUT BUILD THE WALL SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE with President Reagan when they ie to him.

  2. we don’t want them turned over to authorities, WE WANT THEIR ILLEGAL CRIMINAL ASS’S KICKED BACK OVER THE BORDER.
    LET MEXICO DEAL WITH THEM.
