Just cut the funds.
Put THAT money toward the WALL..
Didn't President Trump set up an agency to help victims of crimes committed by illegals? Don't just cut the funds. Provide legal guidance to help victims of those crimes sue the city and anyone involved with allowing those invaders to roam the streets.
I hope Trump promptly redirects it to the wall before anything has a chance to divert it. Then the gov can truthfully say in court “sorry, those funds have already been expended”.
Bigger gets: San Fran and LA

Yes it is. And it sends a good message to the others and to the many cities who are considering it.
Just cut the funds.
No more threats. No more delays. Time for swift action. The cities either comply with our laws or the money gets cut off on a date certain.
We KNOW liberal groups will find liberal judges who will order these fund cuts restored.
IGNORE THESE JUDICIAL ACTIVIST JUDGES!
This is but one way to deal with these criminals holding political office.
Just do it! America-hating communism can’t survive without have access to the “capitalists’” money.
Good, use them to build the Wall!
Anybody notice the highlighted words?
IGNORE THESE JUDICIAL ACTIVIST JUDGES!””

Enough threatening, just do it.
These are 8 biggies. Do them and see if any others fall into line. I have a hard time seeing the feds taking on 50 or 60 cities at once. Just the logistics alone make it seem they would be biting off more than they can chew.
