Since Trump’s election, dozens of universities across America have denounced his plans to deport illegal aliens.
Now those colleges are calling themselves “Sanctuary campuses” — which harbor illegal aliens, and refuse to hand them over to the Feds. This is as illegal — and often as dangerous — as Sanctuary Cities, which protect illegal alien criminals who kill Americans, like Kate Steinle in San Francisco last year.
They are thumbing their nose at the Feds to protect illegal aliens.
But they just got a reality check from the new GOP Congress, which is in no mood to see Obama’s immigration chaos continue. Before Trump is even sworn in as President, Congress just introduced a bill to strip funds from these schools that refuse to enforce the law.
A U.S. representative from California has introduced a bill to block Title IV funds to colleges and universities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) introduced the No Funding for Sanctuary Campuses Act to define “sanctuary campus” and create financial penalties for any “institutions of higher education that violates immigration laws.” The bill, H.R. 6530, was co-sponsored by Representatives Tom McClintock (R-CA) and Lou Barletta (R-PA).
“It’s by no means unreasonable to expect the nation’s higher learning institutions to follow the law the same way we expect states and localities to abide by the law,” Hunter told the Washington Examiner in an interview published on Tuesday. “If a school wants federal money, an open declaration that it’s a sanctuary should disqualify it for federal support.
“It’s free to do that, of course, but there should be a consequence in the form of withheld federal funding — it’s that simple,” the California congressman stated.
Play time is over, liberals. A new Sheriff and his posse are in town, and it’s time for the rule of law to be respected once again.
