Kevin de León says plan to defund sanctuary cities is 'blackmail'

California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León called Attorney General Jeff Sessions' plan to block federal funding to sanctuary cities "nothing short of blackmail."

Yesterday Sessions said the Justice Department will require cities to comply with federal immigration laws in order to get grants through the Office of Justice Programs.

Kevin de León is such an entitled ass.  He thinks it's okay for illegals to steal identities and social security numbers, he even admitted that his own family did it!

He said in a statement:

“When it comes to immigrants and sanctuary counties and cities, the Attorney and the President are stuck on alternative facts. Instead of making us safer, the Trump administration is spreading fear and promoting race-based scapegoating. Their gun-to-the-head method to force resistant cities and counties to participate in Trump’s inhumane and counterproductive mass-deportation is unconstitutional and will fail.”

Seriously?  He's talking about making us safer, but he's pushing SB 54 which will stop state and local law enforcement from using their resources to help with immigration enforcement.

Kevin de León's idea of making us safer is letting violent criminals out onto the streets, where they will most likely prowl on the neighborhoods they came from.

Meanwhile, Mayor Eric Garcetti has his yoga pants in bunch over losing federal funds too.  He's vowing to fight the Trump administration, calling its actions unconstitutional. And, he actually said that L.A.'s policies are “designed to keep our residents safe.”

He added:

“Slashing funds for first-responders, for our port and airport, for counterterrorism, crime-fighting and community-building serves no one — not this city, not the federal government, not the American people. We will fight to protect the safety and dignity of all Angelenos, and we will work closely with our representatives in Congress to make sure that Los Angeles does not go without federal resources that help protect millions of people every day.”

He had to throw an "Angeleno" in there, didn't he. Every time he says that word, the bulge in his yoga pants gets a little bit bigger.

Such a gross bunch of people we have running California.
