Trump Admin Tells Cities to Follow Immigration Law. Liberal Seattle Sues...
There's more to Seattle than hipster coffee shops and the Space Needle. Seattle also doesn't like being told what to do. But not in Texas fashion (see Obama Admin Tries Forcing Refugees on Texas. Texas Flips the Bird...). Think something more along the lines of "screw the federal government AND our citizens." When Jeff Sessions told sanctuary cities less sanctuary giving and more law following unless they want to lose funding, Seattle's Mayor wasted no time in thinking up a snarky response. In the form of a lawsuit.
The city of Seattle announced a federal lawsuit over the Trump administration's threat to withhold federal grants to so-called "sanctuary cities," citing the 10th Amendment that deals with states' rights.
"Apparently the Trump administration, their war on facts, has now become a war on cities," Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said.
Quick pause. It's not a war on cities, but illegal sneaky sneaks sneaking their way across the border without vetting or permission. Often to commit a whole bunch of crime. Starting, but not ending with, skipping the citizenship process. So no, the federal government seeking to protect the border isn't a "war on facts" or a "war on cities." Dummies.
We've already been through why sealing the border is necessary (read The Border Wall: Why John Oliver is Dead Wrong and Dear Liberals: No, There's Nothing Racist About Securing Borders), but these are facts lost on leftist officials more interested in scoring virtue points from their blue and green haired constituents.
"Let me be clear about the facts: We are not breaking any laws and we are prioritizing safety," Murray said. He said the goal of the suit is to have a judge declare the order unconstitutional.
In other words...
In the video above, Seattle flexes what appears to be the semblance of... a spine? A surprising development coming from the land of deep blue, I know (see Seattle Appeases Islam With Sharia Compliant Mortgages). Good for them. Kind of. Except the city decided to stand its ground on this sanctuary city issue, of all the possible issues. Which means Mayor Murray is prioritizing illegal immigrants over the well-being of his own citizens. Fine and dandy until an illegal alien stabs a Hawks fan. Or run over with a truck. Maybe shot. See gay bay south, San Francisco.
Simmer down, Seattle. Nobody is breaking the law by asking you to enforce the law. If you have further inquiries, see the law. Even your great neighbors to the north, Canada, are starting to mind their own borders. Go drink more coffee and read about laws.
