Democrats are dragging their jaws on the floor in absolute SHOCK!
Especially the Democrats in Maryland who have recently uncovered a surprising truth, and they are having the darndest time trying to make sense of it in their little minds.
That truth is that legal immigrants are opposing the existence of sanctuary city legislation.
It was reported in an article titled “Sanctuary Bills in Maryland Faced a Surprise Foe: Legal Immigrants” it is written that ‘vetoed’ bill for a sanctuary city was met with very obvious and stout opposition, and even more surprisingly from a very unlikely source…legal foreign-born residents.
Sanctuary cities are municipalities that in a way abide their own laws, they do not fully comply with federal immigration authorities or regulations.
Back in February, the county council of Howard city approved a sanctuary policy, however just shortly after the measure was advanced, Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman who is a Republican, vetoed it.

Then in March, the council failed to override Kittleman’s veto. At that time only three of the council’s four Democrats voted in favor of the sanctuary bill. The Chairman, Jon Weinstein, a Democrat, and Councilman Greg Fox, who is the sole Republican there, both voted AGAINST it!
Shocking? Yes. Welcomed news? …heck yes. It’s a good sign that not all is lost in a nation post-Obama’s America. We have been left with nothing but chaos, lawless people, and absolute division of a people after the damage that has been done over the past 8 years under the reign of a man who had no right leading a nation meant to be ONE nation under God.
Now, legal immigrants say “offering sanctuary to people who came to the country illegally devalues their own past struggles to gain citizenship” One spoke with a handful of legal immigrants and they made it very clear that their opposition to the Howard County sanctuary bill is NOT okay with them, and they weren’t going to sit down for this one.
The Democrats in the their local jurisdiction are not the only lawmakers that have proposed this mindless sanctuary legislation recently either. In fact, just in March the state legislature also attempted to pass a similar bill that they call the Trust Act, which would have made it so that the entire state of Maryland would become one big sanctuary for illegal immigrants.
However, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., a Democrat, said, “Maryland is not going to become a sanctuary state,” the Washington Post reported.
“Our churches are not sanctuaries, our colleges are not sanctuaries, our cities are not sanctuaries, and our state is not going to become a sanctuary state,” he continued, according to the Post. “I haven’t lobbied anybody in the committee, but I definitely will tell you the committee is not going to vote to allow Maryland to become a sanctuary state.”
The sanctuary state legislation was pulled not long after Republican Gov. Larry Hogan vowed to veto the measure.
The failure of both the Howard County and the statewide bills surprised some Democrats, given, as the Times report explains, “their party has staked out an activist position built around protecting undocumented immigrants.”
Taversine, addressing Democrats’ surprise at legal immigrants who oppose sanctuary policies, wrote that the measures have “alienated many who might have been expected to support it.” The Times reporter seemed to be surprised by that development herself, too, later noting that legal immigrants are “unlikely” dissenters to sanctuary laws.
“Their objections stunned Democratic supporters of sanctuary here and helped bring about the bill’s demise in March,” she wrote of the Howard County measure.
One legal Chinese immigrant who is a lawyer voted for Hillary Clinton, but has since changed his mind on how things should be. He opposes sanctuary cities because in his words “being in America is such a high privilege.”
“As an immigrant, I really feel it,” he told the Times. “You cannot easily give that privilege to somebody without going through some kind of process. It’s like giving lots of gold for one dollar.”
What do you think about all this? Did you see this coming?
The president himself called the ruling “ridiculous” in this sanctuary city “ridiculous:
First the Ninth Circuit rules against the ban & now it hits again on sanctuary cities-both ridiculous rulings. See you in the Supreme Court!
