Trump Slams Dems, Sanctuary Cities on Immigration Policies

By    |   Saturday, 09 December 2017 04:06 PM

President Donald Trump Saturday slammed sanctuary cities and Democrats for demanding a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) as part of a year-end government funding bill.

"Help me, Dad. Those were the last words spoken by Kate Steinle as she lay dying on a San Francisco pier – a precious young American woman killed in the prime of her life," Trump said during his weekly address, which he opened by talking about her "preventable" shooting death in 2015, reports The Hill. "Last week, in a final injustice, Kate's killer was acquitted on all of the most serious charges."

This, said Trump in a short video posted through social media, added one more reason for Americans to be upset by sanctuary cities and "open border politicians who shield criminal aliens from federal law enforcement and all of the problems involved with the whole concept of a sanctuary city."

Trump then slammed Democrats for seeking the DACA fix through the spending bill, calling the provision a move toward seeking "amnesty."

In September, Trump announced that he would end the program, unless it was codified by Congress.

On Saturday, though, he complained that congressional Democrats "not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crack down on sanctuary cities – now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government, holding troop funding hostage and putting our national security at risk," Trump said. "We cannot allow it."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, on Thursday vowed that Congress would not leave Washington until its recipients were protected by Congress. vowing that Congress would not leave Washington, D.C., until recipients of the program were protected by congressional action.
