Seattle seems to need that federal money after all because they are now suing over the Trump Administration’s threat to cut funding to cities that don’t cooperate with immigration policy. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has taken a strong stance on the issue,
Apparently the Trump administration, their war on facts, has now become a war on cities.
Let us look at the situation on the ground in Washington, in the executive order mandated releases so far we see that there have been ten detainers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement that have been denied. Seven of those ten are convicted criminal illegal aliens. Narrowing things down to just Seattle’s own King county we find that there were four detainers issued with two for illegal aliens already convicted of violent crimes. Seattle’s Mayor continues,
Let me be clear about the facts: We are not breaking any laws and we are prioritizing safety.
In Seattle public safety must mean allowing illegal aliens convicted of domestic violence and assault to roam free on the streets. Now we all wait for the 9th circuit’s progressive judicial activism to whip up some nonsense to allow this action by Seattle.
