    Thom Tillis Announces Justice For Victims Of Sanctuary Cities Act

    July 9, 2019
    Virginia Kruta

    Republican North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis announced new legislation Tuesday to protect the victims of illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities.

    Tillis noted in a Tuesday press release that his inspiration for the legislation came from his home state, where he argues sanctuary policies have resulted in a dangerous environment for citizens:

    Earlier this month, the Mecklenburg County (NC) Sheriff’s Office refused to notify ICE and comply with a lawful detainer request when it released a dangerous illegal immigrant from county jail who was charged with multiple domestic violence charges for strangling a woman and threatening to kill her. This was only one of more than 20 troubling instances this year of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office releasing potentially dangerous individuals after refusing to comply with detainer requests. The reckless sanctuary policy prompted criticism from the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina.

    The Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act would “hold sanctuary jurisdictions accountable for failing to comply with lawful detainer and release notification requests made by federal authorities and jeopardizing public safety.”

    The legislation also aims to create “a private right of civil action for the victims of sanctuary jurisdictions,” meaning that citizens who were adversely impacted by the actions of criminal illegal aliens would have the right to pursue legal action against the sanctuary jurisdiction that was protecting them.

    Additionally, “any sanctuary city or jurisdiction that refuses to waive its immunity as is relates to sanctuary-related civil action would be subject to the withholding of certain Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding.”

    “It’s disturbing to see sheriffs across North Carolina establish sanctuary jurisdictions, releasing dangerous individuals back into communities while refusing to notify federal immigration officials,” Tillis explained. “If politicians want to prioritize reckless sanctuary policies over public safety, they should also be willing to provide just compensation for the victims.”

    Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz agreed, saying, “The American people, and Texas communities in particular, are tired of seeing our federal immigration laws flouted and criminal illegal immigrants enabled to commit future crimes and escape prosecution.”

    “A good piece of legislation that is long overdue,” Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham noted. “There must be consequences for governments and entities that gamble with public safety, refuse to work with federal officials, and refuse to deal with felons here illegally. This legislation empowers individuals who are the victims of these entities and governments’ poor decisions.”

    “It’s time we put the public safety of our citizens above the sanctuary of an immigrant who has come to our country illegally,” Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn added.

    Proponents of sanctuary policies, such as Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, argue that such policies actually make cities safer because illegal immigrants are more likely to cooperate with local law enforcement if they are not constantly in fear of deportation.

    The Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act is co-sponsored by Graham, Blackburn and Cruz, along with Republican Iowa Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst.

    Prosecute the Governors and Mayors!

    They need to be removed from office, serve time, and pay fines for human trafficking, harboring, aiding and abetting illegal aliens right in front of our faces!!!

    They grossly violate their oath of office to serve and protect our country and our citizens, disobeying our laws, and putting us in harms way every day!

    Prosecute them for embezzlement of our taxpayer dollars, misappropriation of those funds, and USING those funds to aid illegal aliens!

    We are not paying our tax dollars to PAY FOR millions of illegal aliens who have no right to those funds and no right to be on our soil.

    NO AID ON THE BORDER, NO MORE HEADS ON BEDS...PUT THEIR BUTTS ON BUSES BACK HOME! PERIOD! ALL OF THEM!

    THIS IS A DAMN INVASION BY HORDES OF FOREIGNERS WHO ARE DESTROYING AND BANKRUPTING OUR COUNTRY.
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    Thom Tillis is a turncoat, in my opinion. A few years ago, he hosted roundtable discussions with The New American Economy, a coalition of "business leaders" pushing for amnesty. Some were contractors who used to hire American subs, but now hire illegal aliens, as it costs them less. He advocated for cheap labor at the expense of middle America for his manufacturing buddies. He also was opposed to the wall. I'll be voting for Tucker.

    Thom Tillis showed no interest in fighting illegal immigration over his many years in the US Senate and as Speaker of the NC House... until his recent reelection efforts.
