Trump Threatens to Withhold Bailout Funds from States with Sanctuary Cities

Published

President Donald Trump recently warned Democrats that he will be calling for “adjustments” for sanctuary cities as a prerequisite for bailing out states.

The president hinted that he might withhold funding from states that maintain “radical left” sanctuary cities in the next round of emergency Wuhan virus relief.

Democrats are demanding that the federal government drop at least $500 billion into state governments which have faced significant shortfalls since the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

That said, Trump commented that he doesn’t want to give handouts to Democrat-run states “to recover 25 years of bad management.” “If it’s COVID-related, I guess we can talk about it,” President Trump said to 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 don’t even think are popular, even by radical left folks.”

“People are being protected that shouldn’t be protected, and a lot of bad things are happening with sanctuary cities,” Trump continued.

Trump expressed favorability towards the concept of payroll tax cuts and then pivoted the discussion to the possibility of bailing out state governments. “The problem with the states is we’re not looking to recover 25 years of bad management and give them the money they lost. That’s unfair to other states,” Trump stated.

The president then indicated that for state governments to be eligible for more bailout aid, they would have to get tough on cities within their jurisdictions that refuse to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).“If we are going to do something for states, I think they probably want something having to do with sanctuary cities and other different points that we can discuss a little bit later on,” he stated.

President Trump said he may need sanctuary cities to make “adjustments” before they receive any funding.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled back in February that the Trump administration is legally allowed to withhold millions of dollars in federal law enforcement grants from states and local governments that do not work with ICE. This ruling represented a solid victory for Trump in his fight against sanctuary jurisdictions.

These polices are solid steps in containing mass migration.

However, the Trump administration must have more comprehensive policies to handle this matter.

Which is why Trump must not only win re-election in 2020 but also have a solid America First contingent in both the House and Senate to see his vison through.

The very social fabric of the American nation state is at stake, and Trump will have to deliver on his promises to keep America in the 21st century on stable footing.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

on

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
