    Mayors call on feds to define ‘sanctuary city’ label

    By - Associated Press - Wednesday, March 29, 2017

    HOUSTON (AP) - Two mayors who met with Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly say they want DHS to clearly define the term “sanctuary city.”

    Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Austin Mayor Steve Adler were among local government leaders who met with Kelly on Wednesday in Washington. Both cities have been criticized for enacting so-called “sanctuary” policies for immigrants living in the country illegally.

    Adler says Austin and Travis County follow immigration laws, despite the county’s inclusion on a federal list of uncooperative local governments, and wants that to be made clear. Rawlings says the group “expressed concern with the lack of clarity” about the term.

    Federal and Texas leaders have threatened to withhold funding from sanctuary cities.

    A DHS spokesman says President Donald Trump’s administration is working on an official definition.

    I think a definition is good for "clarity".

    Definition of santuary political subdivision or state:

    A city, county or state that provides sanctuary to illegal aliens.

    How's that?

    Simply stated - an entity that refuses to obey the law and participate in removing, by all legal means, criminals from our midst.

    Somehow, though, I'm thinking the President surely has other means as well. Why not, rather than detainers, issue warrants. Many of the entities on the Shame Board gave as a reason, there was no warrant.

    He could have judges on call 24/7 to issue warrants. Fax in the info, fax back a warrant. If there is evidence enough for a detainer, there is evidence enough for a warrant. Maybe???

    Texas is toast - I'm sorry to say. Unless the people decide to get together and begin to use the weapons they have - their monies, their votes. I wouldn't spend a dime in Dallas, Austin or Houston. Actually, though, ALL Texas cities and counties are sanctuary, let's face it.

    My children and grandchildren have been in another state for several years and they really want to come back. I tell them - 'no, you really don't.'
