Miami Gives In To Trump

There were many cities that were talking big about being “Sanctuary Cities.” They claimed that they would not comply with federal investigations or deportations. But as we said, this would not last long. It is one thing to have convictions, but we knew that they would soon be complying if the government cut off their funding.

Miami Florida was the first to fold.

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez has instructed county jails to comply with all federal immigration detainer requests on Thursday, only one day after President Donald Trump issued an executive order to cut federal funding from sanctuary cities.

The mayor decided it made no financial sense to risk losing $355 million in federal funding during 2017 to protect illegal aliens with criminal records.

“I want to make sure we don’t put in jeopardy the millions of funds we get from the federal government for a $52,000 issue,” Giménez said. “It doesn’t mean that we’re going to be arresting more people. It doesn’t mean that we’re going to be enforcing any immigration laws,” he added.

Giménez was trying to reassure his leftist supporters that this was not a complete cave. He wanted the Left to know that he would not order the active round up of illegals. But this is a small consolation.

There will be no escaping the fact that he and the city will be cooperating with ICE and the deportation of illegals arrested. The announcement should be seen as good news especially since most of these orders deal with known criminals.

Why would the citizens of Miami not want fewer criminals in their city?
