Trump ICE pick: Politicians who run sanctuary cities should be charged with crimes

President Trump's pick to run Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Tuesday called for a crackdown on so-called sanctuary cities, saying politicians who help run them should be charged with crimes.

In an interview with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said the Department of Justice needs "to file charges against the sanctuary cities" and "hold back their funding."

Homan, who was announced in December as President Trump's pick to permanently run the agency, went on to say that politicians enforcing sanctuary city policies need to be held "personally accountable."

"We gotta take [sanctuary cities] to court, and we gotta start charging some of these politicians with crimes," he said.

His comments came during a discussion about California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), a staunch defender of protections for undocumented immigrants who in October signed a bill declaring California a sanctuary state.

Sanctuary cities, which limit their cooperation with federal law enforcement in an effort to shield undocumented migrants from deportation, have increasingly come under fire since President Trump took office in January.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has repeatedly called for tougher measures for sanctuary cities, including the withholding of federal grants for them.

Trump made the issue central to his campaign in 2016, arguing that sanctuary city policies prevent law enforcement from keeping Americans safe.

There is a post today that says more than I could about the sad state of Mathis's military - Problems the Pentagon Must Fix in 2018 Ray Starman. As for Tillerson - he's so deep in the swamp he's barely visible as his minions in the State Dept continue to do all they can to block DJT. He's kinds a moe visible Sessions and just as ineffective; he's also a believer in moderate Islam.
