On Tuesday night, when President Trump addressed the Joint Session of Congress, he stated that one of his most important duties is to ‘preserve, protect, and defend not only the Constitution but America and it’s citizens. President Trump has been strongly against ‘sanctuary’ cities all along. The fact of the matter is, ‘sanctuary’ cities shelter immigrants illegally by refusing to help the federal government enforce immigration laws. In other words, they support illegal activities that break the laws.
What’s pretty amazing is that most of the cities that are ‘sanctuary’ cities have Democratic mayors, cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. These cities have also become pretty local and blatantly defiant of President Trump’s stance on ‘sanctuary’ cities. In other words, these mayors would rather protect illegals than take federal dollars for the protection of their own legal citizens, especially the Mayor of New York. So much for the Democratic mayors putting America first.
NY’s Mayor Bill de Blasio has said NY will not give up the ‘santuary’ city status. In other words, Mayor de Blasio’s saying that he would rather ‘harbor’ illegals than enforce the immigration laws. However, the NYPD union officials are blasting Mayor de Blasio for his pro-illegal stances.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
In a radio interview this week, Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association in New York City, blasted Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill for being unwilling to work with the federal authorities, The New York Daily News reported.
“Make no mistake about it, the members of law enforcement in the NYPD want to cooperate with ICE. I speak to cops every day — they want to cooperate with ICE, they want to work with fellow law enforcement agents,” Mullins said Sunday on 970-AM’s “The Cats Roundtable,” with host John Catsimatidis.
“There is a moral obligation, and as the chief law enforcement officer of the city, you yourself have to be able to follow the direction of law. We don’t get to participate in the laws that we want,” Mullins said. “That’s total lunacy.”
Newsday reported that Mullins claimed that de Blasio was playing politics because it is an election year, and de Blasio thinks taking the pro-illegal side will help him win.
You can listen to his full remarks here:
Mayor de Blasio is preventing the NYPD from doing their jobs. He’s preventing the officers from enforcing the law. If you ask me he sounds a lot like former President Obama, who thought he could just pick and choose the laws he wanted to enforce.
You want to know one reason why Democrats are so upset about President Trump being in the White House? They know Trump is going to enforce ALL laws and he will preserve, protect and defend AMERICANS FIRST!
If I were Mayor de Blasio, I’d be more worried about his upcoming election. De Blasio is nothing more than a corrupt politician. He’s also still currently under at least 6 investigations. There should be some good stiff competition coming from the right, including former NY Jet and Minister Michael Faulkner and Paul Massey. We can only hope this will be Mayor de Blasio’s last term in office.
To Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association and the rest of the NYPD, thank you for serving and protecting the citizens of NYC. I think most law abiding citizens would agree that politicians shouldn’t get to decide which laws they want to enforce. I agree with you… ‘THAT IS TOTAL LUNACY’!
