Number of sanctuary cities nears 500

Via Billy

Nearly 500 jurisdictions are now sanctuary cities, according to a group that’s trackd the issue for more than a decade, and who said there’s been a massive surge in the number of places trying to thwart federal immigration agents since President Trump’s election.

The Ohio Jobs & Justice Political Action Committee has dded more than three dozen new cities and counties to its list in 2017 alone, as jurisdictions rush to try to shield illegal immigrants from what they expect to be a new push for deportations under Mr. Trump.

“More will be coming,” said Steve Salvi, founder of OJJ. “A lot of communities now, there’s resolutions in the works and citizens groups encouraging city councils to pass them.”

Perhaps just as surprising, though, are the four cities OJJ has removed from its list or is poised to remove, once it gets final confirmation of cooperation with Homeland Security officials. Two of those are in Alaska, while the other two are Dayton, Ohio, and Miami, Florida.


  1. So if these cities can pick and choose what laws they want to enforce or out and out break federal law.... Then what​is to prevent a municipality to abstain from federal gun laws. I mean most of the BS we as gun owners deal with aren't even laws.... They are interpretations made up by some bureaucrats it a certain agency. They have no real legal standing to make. At least the immigration laws are passed by congress......

    1. Hopefully we'll get rid of a good bit of legislation now.
