Skip to comments.Trump to use sanctuary city 'adjustments' as condition for Dems' next relief bill
Posted on 04/28/2020 3:39:27 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
President Trump warned Democrats Tuesday that he will demand adjustments for sanctuary cities as a condition of bailout aid for states, as both parties take increasingly partisan paths toward the next round of emergency coronavirus relief.
With Democrats demanding at least $500 billion to fill state coffers drained by business shutdowns, Mr. Trump said he doesnt want to reward mostly Democrat-controlled states to recover 25 years of bad management.
If its COVID-related, I guess we can talk about it, the president told reporters at the White House. But we want certain things also, including sanctuary city adjustments. We have so many people in sanctuary cities, which I dont even think are popular, even by radical left folks. People are being protected that shouldnt be protected, and a lot of bad things are happening with sanctuary cities.
The president has sought as policy to reduce federal aid to states and cities that provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants, but hadnt raised it before as a condition of emergency coronavirus relief. Congressional Democrats have fiercely resisted any efforts to curtail sanctuary cities.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that Democrats want $500 billion for states plus a very big figure of extra money for county and municipal governments. They also want more funding for Medicaid.
Mrs. Pelso also said this week that she might propose government-guaranteed income, an idea championed by failed Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, in the next round of aid to help Americans through the pandemic.
There are many more people than just in small business and hired by small business
that may need some assistance as well, she said on MSNBC.

State employees and teachers in these blue states are the only ones getting a paycheck through this whole crisis. Why should Federal taxpayers foot the bill for these reckless union contracts?
Mr. President, give “adjustments” to parents who have homeschooled their kids for the last two months as well. Whatever amount of money schools would’ve received should go to the parents who are homeschooling their kids.
Not only NO!! HELL NO!!
Enough of these stinking bailouts!! Those states that voted themselves in=to their fiscal mess can rot, for all I care! I am sick and tired of seeing my kids and grandkids futures gutted by the Commies and Illegal Invaders! This crap has to end!
Barr is all over that, right after Hillary goes to jail, no really.
Yeah, let’s let the responsible among us pay for the wasteful misadventures of the irresponsible. What could go wrong that? More irresponsibility?
“The only “adjustment” I want to see is incarceration of the government officials who presided over the “sanctuaries.” “
EXACTLY! “Sanctuary city”? INVASION PROTECTION ZONES. What’s next, no-go zones for Mohammedans? Oh,...wait...
3) DEEDS...LIST OF GRIEVANCES for SUPERCRIMINALS masquerading as “government officials”.

How many doolars in bills 1 and 2 before we get a bone. Kabuki bailouts.
I agree with Trump. If it’s is Covid-19 related, yeah let’s talk about it. That makes sense. The rest. Nope.
That is correct along with their pensions.
Better look at counties, too.
Please stop, don’t pass any more “help”, we may not survive it.
I share your sentiments but get real. Spending stops when we are worse off than venesuela
I posted this on 4/20 and it is now apparently part of the next “free money to states” bill. Love the way PDJT, (and his folks), think. (Damn, I’m a genius. Na, just logic and common sense).
My opinion only. PDJT and McConnel should agree to bail out these states and cities with some extreme conditions.
1. Rescind all sanctuary laws and programs.
2. Rescind all freebees to illegal aliens including in state tuition, legal aid and drivers licenses.
3. Require a state wide/city wide reduction in force of 5%, to include universities/colleges and public schools.
4. Reduce public school administrative staff by 20% on top of the 5% reduction above.
5. Reform public pension plans with a commitment to phase into 401Ks within 5 years.
6. No public employee shall be paid more than 1/2 of the salary of the governor of the state or mayor of the city.
Add to this as you see fit.
Great list. You left out a couple of key conditions, though.
Voter ID must be required AFTER “cleaning up” registered Voter rolls, i.e. all dead and inactive registrations. No same day registrations, period. Paper ballots, only.
Any and all monies must be repaid within 5 years.
It’s a shame that we can’t clone President Trump! I do NOT trust either McCarthy nor McConnell to stand tall for us. Not one bit.
