The Department of Justice Just Did WHAT to Sanctuary Cities?!


Posted By Paul Duke |

President Trump and his administration have long been focused on the issue of immigration, particularly as it pertains to those who would enter our nation in a clandestine, secretive manner.

Of course, given that there seems to be an automatic resistance to everything that Trump does, the left has attempted to portray this push to legalize all immigration through the naturalization process as somehow inherently racist.

This, in turn, has spawned the advent of so-called “sanctuary cities”, where Democrat leaders refuse to comply with the national legal standards when it comes to undocumented migrants.  The Trump administration has repeatedly attempted to crack down on this sort of behavior, and is now employing the DOJ in their efforts.

Charging that so-called “sanctuary” cities that protect illegal immigrants are jeopardizing domestic security, Attorney General Bill Barr announced a slew of additional sanctions that he called a “significant escalation” against left-wing local and state governments that obstruct the “lawful functioning of our nation’s immigration system.”

Speaking at the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference in Washington, D.C., Barr said the Justice Department would immediately file multiple lawsuits against sanctuary jurisdictions for unconstitutionally interfering with federal immigration enforcement, and implement unprecedented national reviews of left-wing sanctuary governments and prosecutors.

“Let us state the reality upfront and as clearly as possible,” Barr began. “When we are talking about sanctuary cities, we are talking about policies that are designed to allow criminal aliens to escape. These policies are not about people who came to our country illegally but have otherwise been peaceful and productive members of society.  Their express purpose is to shelter aliens whom local law enforcement has already arrested for other crimes.  This is neither lawful nor sensible.”

The news comes after the Department of Justice filed an official complaint against the State of New Jersey after Garden State authorities attempt to codify insubordinate behavior by local authorities when it came to partnering with federal customs enforcement.

What happens every time the Democrats investigate Trump? Nothing. So what do they do next? Investigate the investigation. This whistle-blower scandal is no different.

Now, Nancy Pelosi says AG Barr is protecting Donald Trump with a cover-up, because she is desperate to save face. As recently put it, Pelosi fell into Trump’s trap- hook, line and sinker.

Before Trump released the phone call, we predicted the utter failure of this whistle-blower.

Democrats have only one chance in 2020. They must impeach Trump in order to take over the White House. Thus, it’s no wonder they continually search for grounds to impeach.

Currently, Democrats base their fantasies on a phone call with the Ukraine. But tomorrow will come and bust their hopes and dreams yet again. Especially now that Donald Trump said he is releasing the transcript of said phone call.

We knew Nancy would take it hard.

In fact, GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz weighed in.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives has been functionally catfished into a politically fatal impeachment proceeding based on rumors, based on faulty evidence and based on a bloodlust for the president politically that does not serve our nation well.

Let me give you the high points. There is no quid-pro-quo between President Trump and President Zelensky for anything, much less military aid. There is no eight times of reference to Joe Biden. I think “The Wall Street Journal” will have a good deal of retracting today. And in fact, President Zelensky himself identifies the rooting out of corruption. President Zelensky said “we here in the Ukraine are trying to drain the swamp much like you are trying to drain the swamp in the United States of America.”

This isn’t a call about leverage. This isn’t a call about threats. This was a mutually appreciative and laudatory call between two leaders who are trying to clean up some of the garbage in their respective countries that has polluted politics. Now, the president does ask for a favor from President Zelensky but the favor is on behalf of our nation. The favor we seek is cooperation between his government and Attorney General Bill Barr as we work to determine what activities in the Ukraine may have been in any way involved in the 2016 — not 2020 — but in the 2016 efforts to interfere with the United States election.

My next prediction was that Democrats would again fail to impeach, and their efforts will backfire in 2020. But I left out one important step- the part where Democrats pretend there is more proof somewhere, if they only dig deeper.

Barr Fight

Now, Pelosi’s strategy is to paint AG William Barr as unhinged. That would certainly help with his counter investigation of the Russian investigation. Further, Pelosi could theoretically keep her impeachment inquiry alive another day.

According to Fox News:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday that Attorney General William Barr has “gone rogue,” alleging there was an attempted “cover-up” of the whistle-blower complaint that has led to an impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
“He’s gone rogue,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after host Joe Scarborough asked if she was concerned that the country’s institutions could fail due to Barr’s behavior.
“I think where they are going is the cover-up of the cover-up, and that’s very really sad for them. To have a Justice Department go so rogue, they have been for a while, and now it just makes matters worse,” said Pelosi, faulting Barr for instructing the director of national intelligence to bring the whistle-blower complaint to the White House.

Grasping at Straws

There’s a serious lack of common sense brewing here. Barr and Maguire knew this whistle-blower complain was nonsense. Thus, they acted in the best interest of justice. Which kind of makes sense, considering it’s the Justice Department. But Pelosi needs a win, thus she’s grasping at straws for anything to “get” Donald Trump.

Fox continues:

Pelosi said acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire “broke the law” by not immediately turning over the whistle-blower complaint to Congress. She called Maguire a man of “great reputation” and said she “felt sorry for him” because he was placed in an “unprecedented situation.”
House Democrats are moving full speed ahead with the impeachment inquiry announced earlier this week, with reports indicating lawmakers could file articles of impeachment before year’s end.
