WASHINGTON (CBS5) - An amendment that bars cities that do not fully assist with federal immigration enforcement, also known as "sanctuary cities," from funding has been approved by the House of Representatives.

The amendment was added to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014.

Rep. Matt Salmon of Mesa, R-Arizona 5th district, offered the amendment during a debate on the bill, and his amendment was adopted by a voice vote.

Salmon emphasized the growing problem of sanctuary cities.

"The reality is that sanctuary cities contribute to an ever bigger illegal immigration problem and should not benefit from federal law enforcement funding," he said. "These funds should be reserved for those cities that actively enforce the law."

Always found it amusing that cities could defy Federal law with this sanctuary business or openly sell and promote drugs like marijuana in defiance of existing law. States legalize gay marriage in defiance of DOMA. Somehow these states are allowed to defy Federal law which should take precedence. However if a state passes an anti-abortion law it is quickly nullified.

Didn’t Deval actually declare all of Massachusetts an “insane asylum”? That would make more sense, from him.

"Sanctuary city" is an oxymoron because it derives from the medieval practice of anyone going into a church is immune from prosecution.

These cities have nothing to do with God.

_____________________________________________

so glad you brought that item up...

Patrick just continued what a former MASS gov had started...

Willard was gov from 2002 BEFORE Deval patrick

while Willard was gov he had sanctuary cities and wouldnt allow LEO to arrest illegal aliens

he also KNOWINGLY hired illegal aliens to do the grounds of the gov mansion for several years...

even after the local newspaper did an article complaining...

He also said that the AMNESTY Bill should be passed...

Willard said “We cant send they all back” because he wanted NONE sent back

and

“We must find a path to citizenship”

Personal mail (FReepMail) is a most excellent way to settle personal disagreements. It is often a courtesy of the offended party to offer a settlement in private.

Some of the most nasty, crime filled areas. Painesville, OH is a a sh**hole. Denton, TX isn’t far behind.

No it is often used to abuse the other FReeper in secret...

In this case I think it may have been based on the posts

So is this a done deal? Is any actual federal funding really being cut?

Well, I know sometimes I am not as clear as I should be, or I answer the wrong poster, private mail has always clarified any problem I’ve had with another poster.

I don’t even know why I jumped into this, though empathy may have played a part.

Hope so. Watch how quickly some of these broke, crime ridden cities change their tune.

I don’t understand the myopic small ball view of the House GOP.

The Dem power establishment in sanctuary cities are going to openly and whole heartedly embrace this, some will embrace it publicly and some only in private but mouth platitudes against it in public.

The removal of Fed funding for Fed level law enforcement in sanctuary cities opens up vasts venues of grey and black market activities to the power brokers who groom, fund and support the sycophantic politicians who put these sanctuary laws into place.

The GOP just rewarded the Democrat machinery with an open invitation to increased looting and plundering of the body politic.

Oh, don’t throw them into that briar patch!!!

Crime breeds opportunity for the parasite classes. They’re going to let the cities burn as they plunder the remaining wealth.

IF somehow the House GOP were able to sustain this policy over a course of years, it would take most current sanctuary cities a decade or longer before the effects provoke the House GOP’s intended response. By then we’ll have something like 15 to 25 million illegal aliens and de facto amnesty in one form or the other.

This is at most a legislative platitude to mollify the GOP masses, it is nothing more.

Changing the name of something to illicit or avoid an emotional connotation or connection is standard marxist/communist operating proceedure.

It's been used here to their great success.
