Democrats in Congress never expected the Trump administration back on offense so soon.
And now after their failed impeachment hoax they are just trying to keep their heads above water.
That’s because Attorney General William Barr filed this one lawsuit that has the Radical Left sweating bullets.
William Barr made headlines while speaking with the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and the Technology Conference in Washington, D.C.
Attorney General Barr issued a statement that the Trump administration would be going on the offense and is ready to combat any rogue locally elected and State officials that are acting against the rule of law and allowing sanctuary city policy for illegal aliens in the U.S.
Attorney General Barr made it known the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution does not allow States to provide such legal protections to illegal aliens as the federal government has sole authority to implement immigration law.
“The Founding Fathers carefully divided responsibility and power between the federal government and the state governments. The ‘Supremacy Clause’ in Article VI of the Constitution provides that the ‘Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof . . . shall be the supreme law of the land,’” Barr stated.
“This Clause is a vital part of our constitutional order. Enforcing a country’s immigration laws is an essential function of the national government. And no national government can enforce those laws properly if state and local governments are getting in the way. While federal law does not require that ‘sanctuary jurisdictions’ actively assist with federal immigration enforcement, it does prohibit them from interfering with our enforcement efforts,” the Attorney General concluded.
Barr signaled that the Department of Justice would be suing the state of New Jersey for having instructed State and local law enforcement to not cooperate with ICE in an effort to protect illegal aliens hiding in the state.
Radical Left politicians have been implementing schemes to undermine the enforcement of immigration across the country – and now Attorney General Barr is ready to swing the hammer.
In Washington State, the Department of Justice is suing King’s County for having issued an executive order that prevented their airport from being used for deportation – effectively making the county a haven for illegal aliens.
Following the Democrats’ failed impeachment scam – the Trump administration is now taking a direct approach.
President Trump and Attorney General Barr are putting the pressure on Leftist agents in local and State governments with a full court press to shutdown sanctuary cities.
