This election cycle, we have heard a lot about "Sanctuary Cities" and their disregard for the law when it comes to illegal immigration. Donald Trump made dealing with these cities a campaign issue, promising to crack down on them and make them comply with federal immigration enforcement. This was a popular issue with many of his supporters, but in talking with them it became increasingly clear that many of them have no idea what a sanctuary city is, what they do, and how this relates to federal immigration law enforcement. Some of them think that these cities go so far as to harbor illegals and protect them from federal enforcement agents. I wanted to make an attempt at clearing the air on what it is exactly that these cities do.
I haven't heard or seen anyone touching on this yet, and I found this to be very interesting. Perhaps I should start a new segment for the show called "Dueling Headlines" or something. But imagine you were reading the newspaper, and the editor accidentally ran one of these as the top headline on the paper, and then directly underneath it they ran the other as the top story. I'm not implying anything here, or making any accusations. Any conclusions drawn by the reader are entirely their own. In other words, I'm not saying, I'm just saying. Ready? Here is your first installment of Dueling Headlines.
Do you see what I'm saying? Imagine Rachel Maddow, or some other liberal dude on MSNBC were to accidentally cover those two stories back to back. That might be pretty embarrassing for that network. As a matter of fact, let's just say that this is my point. I'm just trying to help out our friends over at MSNBC in an attempt to keep their hosts from embarrassing themselves in front of the literal tens of people who watch that network. You may now return to your regularly scheduled surfing.
