TRUMP CRACKS DOWN: DHS orders prosecutors to arrest leaders of sanctuary cities

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump’s tough stance against illegal immigration got even tougher on Tuesday as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed that her department has ordered federal prosecutors to lodge criminal charges against sanctuary city leaders who refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Nielsen said while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Nielson’s comments come in response to California’s new sanctuary law, which went into effect Jan. 1, that severely restricts cooperation with federal immigration agencies.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says the move is necessary because sanctuary city leaders who refuse to comply with federal deportation efforts put both officers and local communities at greater risk.

“We gotta take [sanctuary cities] to court, and we gotta start charging some of these politicians with crimes,” Homan said in an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto last week (http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/01/02/ice-director-rips-california-governor-jerry-brown-sanctuary-state-law), stating he believed politicians who pushed sanctuary city legislation should be held “personally accountable” for their actions.
