DOJ Threatens To Pull Funding From California Over Sanctuary State Law

There should be consequences for passing a law that protects illegal aliens

(Fox News) The Department of Justice issued California another stern warning Wednesday – drop its sanctuary state status or remain in violation of federal law and potentially lose out on millions of dollars.

Earlier this month, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a so-called “sanctuary state” bill which basically erects a wall between California law enforcement and federal immigration enforcement officers. The bill forbids California cops from providing release and other information that isn’t publicly available in response to a request for notification from federal law enforcement.

Supporters argue that sanctuary policies allow local and state law enforcement officers to build crucial relationships with immigrant communities. Critics say not turning over people living in the country illegally puts the public in danger. Wednesday’s letter urges California to comply federal statute (8 USC 1373) which bars local jurisdictions from limiting communication with federal law enforcement about a person’s immigration status or whereabouts. The letter states that California’s new law (SB54) “May violate,” 1373.

Department of Justice Officials tell Fox News this situation could result with future federal grants being withheld from California, that threat has been a common thread in this ongoing story. However DOJ officials also tell Fox they could “clawback” funds already awarded to the Golden State.

This could mean the loss of tens of millions in assistance from Los Federales. Really, though, there’s a better solution: Jeff Sessions should say that all illegals in the US are safe if they stay in California. That ICE and other federal agencies won’t operate in California. And then we watch the state collapse under the weight of having to care for all these illegals, as the schools, criminal justice system, hospitals, healthcare system, etc. are over-burdened. And then the feds should refuse to send extra money. It’s a “be careful what you wish for, California, you might just get it” situation.

Of course, that won’t happen. Nor will using the illegal immigration laws on the books about sheltering and helping illegal aliens be applied to California state and local officials. That’s what should really happen, namely, arrest a few and charge them with aiding and abetting illegals in violation of US Code.

Meanwhile, in the People’s Republik Of California, farmers are having a tough time getting workers

California is facing a farmworker shortage, and the blame is landing on the country’s changing immigration landscape.

Almost 70 percent of farmers around California are reporting labor shortages this year, according to a survey by the California Farm Bureau.

Yolo County farmer Jim Durst says he blames his shortage on President Donald Trump.

“When people don’t feel safe, and they’ve created a level of hostility in our country, people go into hiding they become incognito,” said Jim Durst.

Well, then they shouldn’t be hiring illegal aliens. It does show that Trump’s immigration push is working.

    “they could “clawback” funds already awarded”, bullshit, they will do nothing, and will keep awarding more and more money to the state. doj just like the rest of the useless repubs in washington.

    California pays billions more in federal taxes than they receive. The good people of California make it possible for seveal red states to suck at the federal teat. Maybe Californians should stop sending their hard earned money to the Republican redistributors in DC.

    tRump and the tRumpublicans want to force states to do the federal government’s job. We thought Con Men loved the ideal of state sovereignty? We guess Con Men hate brown immigrants more than they love freedoms.

      The USA bases several naval and marine and military bases within the confines of the state. Paying billions more dollars into that state than say Kansas or South Dakota. The state directly benefits by having tens of thousands of US Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines paying not only taxes but purchasing products and services along with purchasing homes and many other things that greatly benefits the great blue states.

      In fact not only that but they have Vandenberg Air Force base which receives a budget of around 35 billion annually which exceeds the monies spent on several red states together.

      One of the benefits that Washington state as well as Hawaii and California is the vast military spending sent into those states each year. Nearly all base closing back in the Bush era were Red state closing. Many military bases in Texas were closed. You can thank LBJ for all those bases by the way. He understood the tit suck philosophy.

      Perhaps the USA should withdraw all those close to 100 billion dollars per year, not to mention all that funding for all those pretty highways and then lets see who is crying to the poor house.

      As someone said here recently this is a relationship of all 50 states working together obeying the LAW to make sure the nation of laws remains within the confines of the constitution and not Anarchy bound.

      This of course then does not even take into account the vast number of FEDERAL employees within the state of California that are paid by these infamous tax dollars not to mention ICE workers and FBI offices in every state. I can just imagine the carnage that would ensure if California were to trade their military and federal workers and social benefits and highway budget for their income taxes. Yeah that would work out really well for them.

      People like you continue to stir up division with your inflamatory rhetoric on this website knowing that the only reason you do so is to stir up anger. Therefore it can only be assumed you are one of the several communist agitators bought and paid for by either Russia, NOKO or China designed to destroy the USA from within.

      1/3 of all welfare recipients in the nation live in California, where 1/5 of the population lives below the poverty line, and a fourth of the residents were not born in the United States and in many cases do not have English facility or high school diplomas.

    It’s a meme on the right that those that call out your BS are communist agitators from the Kremlin.
