GOP Bill Would Defund Sanctuary Cities, Use The Money To Build Trumpís Wall
Conservative Daily Post ^ | 05-01-2018 | Martin Walsh

Posted on 05/01/2018 6:55:08 PM PDT by Kevin in California

Rep. Robert Pittenger, R-N.C., went nuclear on liberals on Tuesday and introduced an explosive bill that would fully defund sanctuary cities and use the funds toward building President Donald Trump‘s wall along the southern border, according to The Daily Caller

I’ll praise Rep. Robert Pittenger for doing the right thing, but Paul Ryan and the RINOS remain firmly in charge.

I agree.

Sounds good, but the entire GOP seems to be on the same side of this issue, with dems.

The GOP is sold out on the issues because they are all for the cheap labor.

The dems are sold out on the issue, because they want to bring in millions of immigrants, to dilute Republican’s voting power.

Same exact position.

Dems however, are winning long term, because they are ever increasing their vote.

Trump is the FIRST Republican, who is not sold out.

That is why he won.

The rest of the GOP needs to stop selling out on this issue.

They should just let it wind its way through the court system. If the concept of Sanctuary Cities is allowed to stand it’s the end of the country because cities in TX, IN, FL, and others would declare themselves Sanctuary Cities against federal laws on abortion, gun control, etc.

You wouldn’t have to “defund” a program if you hadn’t funded it in the beginning. The omnibus is cover for deep state spending. No. More. Omnibus. Bills.

And on the other end of the spectrum, yesterday a Democrat representative introduced a Bill requiring fingerprints for every firearm purchase.
Criminals will ignore it. How does that prevent crime?

It’s about time Republicans starting siding with the citizens and the rule of law.

Both parties can’t be the party for illegal aliens.

If the GOP wants to win, this is the path, clearly side with the citizens and illustrate that the Democrats side with the fraudulently documented foreigners.

I call it the Crimenibus Bill, that’s where they hide all the graft.

Unlikely to pass, most of the House GOP are Cheap Labor Express stooges.
Until they are replaced with patriots we citizens won’t get favorable legislation.
The only answer that most of them favor is amnesty.
My district taking out the weasel Eric Cantor in 2014 saved us the last time they tried for it.
More districts need to Cantorize their weasel before the Bush League Republicans give away our country.
Most of the GOP Senators have to be replaced as well.

Why does everyone so support The Wall ? I’ve stated repeatedly that landmines are much cheaper and far more effective.

Will not get anywhere. The communists judges will kill it. Republicans just don't get it. They are totally useless and they only have themselves to blame. Between Ryan and McConnell nothing will come before the House and/or Senate.

Defund Planned Parenthood too, and build a better wall, or a bigger wall, or built it faster, or prettier.

YES! That is what I want. The heck with sanctuary cities. Sanctuaries against our very laws! Putting the needs and desires of stinking illegal invader criminals above those of citizens. It’s nothing more than a way to destroy our country.

This is just perfect!

There are many GOP primaries coming up, and the perfect question for anyone running as (or pretending to run as) a conservative is...

Do you, without reservations, support...

the “Make Sanctuary Cities Pay for the Wall Act,”

Which would...

... withhold federal funds and grants from sanctuary cities and reallocate them to the Department of Homeland Security to specifically build Trump’s wall?

Hmmmm?
