Sanctuary Cities Get $342 Million From Taxpayers

President Obama's Justice Department has coughed up hundreds of millions of dollars to so-called "sanctuary cities" that refuse federal demands for criminal illegal immigrants sought for deportation, according to a new inspector general memo.

In just 10 of 155 jurisdictions reviewed, taxpayers handed over $342.1 million in Justice grants to the law-breaking cities and states that have policies barring jails and police from cooperating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The IG said that is 63 percent of the funds available to all American cities.

The memo is likely to stir up the issue of illegal immigration and sanctuary cities in the presidential campaign.

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton has voiced support for the sanctuary effort in which state and local officials in mostly urban areas choose to harbor illegals with criminal records rather than comply with ICE requests to turn them over or even identify their immigration status. Donald Trump has called for an end to the practice.

A nation of laws, huh?
"We, the people" clearly see the Two Sets of Laws thing in action and they also see that they will NEVER benefit from it at all.
They just need to continue to work 40-70 hrs a week so our politicians (spit the taste out of your mouth now) can give money to people who are in clear violation of our laws.
Let the hanging begin.....
Keep cheering.
